Being a rather prolific photographer I’m always on the look out for ways to save the memories I’ve captured on my camera. I was looking through the range of personalised Photos gifts from Printerpix recently as I wanted to update a photo canvas of Monkey. It’s a couple of years old and I wanted a more recent picture of Monkey on my wall.
Printerpix offer a whole host of personalised photo gifts from photobooks and calendars to mugs and cushion covers. But I’d set my mind on the photo canvas idea and had a particular photo from a trip to Stowe Gardens I wanted to enlarge.
I’d taken this photo with my DSLR and it was saved as a 4.88MB Jpeg file. I haven’t started shooting in RAW as I don’t have Lightroom or Photoshop editing software. I decided that a 16×20″ canvas would be the best size for the space I have on the wall
The ordering process on Printerpix is easy to follow. You select the shape and size of the canvas you require and upload your photograph selection. Then you decide on the area selection and if you need your image to be rotated.
At this point the website told me that my image wasn’t a high enough resolution and the image might be pixellated. A bit of shame, but I downgraded to a 12×16″ size to protect the canvas quality.
There are various extras available – gloss varnishing for £3.99, I prefer matt so didn’t take up this option, thicker and high quality canvas for £4.99 and a hanging set for £1.99. The standard 12×16″ costs £24.95 plus delivery. You can find out more about these charges and the other products available on the Printerpix website.
My order arrived well packaged, which was just as well as Yodel had dropped it over my back gate as I wasn’t in when they tried to deliver.
It’s great having a canvas gift already fixed with a hanging set as it means you can just unwrap it and hang it up straight away.
The canvas print is a little lighter than the original photo but I still love it and the overall quality of the finish is good.
