Immortalised on canvas – a review

Immortilised on canvas

When I was asked recently if I’d like to be immortalised on canvas I had just the photo in mind.  The lovely people at Picanova have a great deal on at the moment over on their website and you can get a free 30x20cm canvas or 40x30cm canvas for only £6.29!  Just use code CANVAS4YOU at the checkout.

I was interested to see what they would look like so picked my favourite photo of Monkey and I to be immortalised on canvas, I picked the 60x40cm size with a white edging and 2cm frame thickness.  The size of canvas you can select will depend of the pixel size of the original photograph you use.

I’ve not had a canvas print before so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’m pleased with the quality.  I think the print looks great next to the original photograph.

But Monkey is thrilled to have us immortalised on canvas.  We now have our space in the hallway upstairs.

I’ve been pleased with the service we’ve received and the quality of the canvas, so the free options on the Picanova website would be a great idea in my opinion. Please note you do pay postage, but even so it’s a good deal.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. I love printing canvas and my house is full of it. It is great to see picture in canvas than printing paper.
    The canvas look fab and what a great deal for the free canvas!
