If you’ve been reading my site for a while you know that I love photography. Actually if you read my site this week you probably already know that I just purchased a new SLR digital camera. So I’m really excited about photos and photography this week.
Then I discover this great site called Canvas on Demand. This site allows you to have a favorite photo printed on canvas. You can have your photo manipulated to enhance the color and or features of the photo, or you can have a light brush stroke style applied to your photo to make it look more like a painting. You can also have black and white photos colorized, or converted to sepia tones to give them an aged effect. Canvas on Demand will also restore damaged photos for an extra fee.
The site is very easy to use. You can upload a digital photo that you’ve taken with your digital camera, scanned using your scanner or if your photo is a print you can mail it to them. The easiest and fastest way to have a favorite photo printed on canvas is to upload it directly onto the Canvas on demand site and follow the simple step by step directions that you’ll be given in order to complete the process.
Within three to four days of placing your order your photo enlargement and or enhanced photo will be printed on a high quality canvas material and shipped to you.
I’m going to do this. I just have to decide exactly which photo I’ll get made into a 16 x 20 canvas print. I’m excited! Within a couple of weeks I’ll have one of my own photos on canvas!
At this moment I’m thinking of getting a beautiful macro photo of a monarch butterfly on a lilac hibiscus flower made into a canvas print. I took the photo last summer after chasing the butterfly around my yard. It was a hard won photo and it turned out beautifully. The bright colors of the monarch look spectacular against the soft lilac color of the rose of Sharon hibiscus flower. Yes, I’m fairly certain that that’s the photo I’ll use.
I’ll be sure to take a photo of my canvas print when I get it! Maybe you’ll want to do this too?
Update: Yes I’m going to use the monarch and rose of Sharon photo that I mentioned. I’ve just placed my order! Here’s what the photo looks like:
What do you think? I think it will be beautiful on a canvas!
