Saving memories with My Picture UK

As you all know, I am a prolific photographer.  I rarely go anywhere without either my phone or camera, and I love to capture moments from all of our adventures.  In this digital age, I’m not so good at actually printing pictures out but I do like to turn favourite photographs of my son into canvas prints.

Saving memories with My Picture UK

I’ve recently been saving memories with My Picture.co.uk when I was asked if I’d like to put one of my favourite shots from the year onto canvas.  I finally decided on a shot of my son I took from our trip to Painswick Rococo Garden back in February.  My son, red coat, stick in hand, kind of his signature look isn’t it?

The ordering process is really easy with My Picture.co.uk, and they have all sorts of photo gift options, but I knew exactly what I was looking for as I wanted to replace an older canvas I have on our living room wall.  So I opted for a 60×40 cm option (sizes range from 20×20 cm through to 120×80 cm).  All of the canvases are heavily discounted so instead of £49.99 the basic canvas print would cost £22.00.  You can zoom in on your photo image if you so wish, and add text if required too.

There are two options for frame thickness – 2cm is the standard size, but like me, you can upgrade to the 4 cm XXL size for an additional £5.00.

For this particular canvas I opted for a stretched edge, but you could decide on a white or black, mirrored or folded edge instead.

When saving memories with My Picture.co.uk you can also arrange for your canvas to be framed, there are various frame colour options available at an additional charge.  You could also opt to have your photograph converted to a black and white canvas if you so wished.  I did add the £3.00 hanger set to go with my canvas, which comes with a cord, hanging hooks, nails and screw fixings.  If your order is over £45.00 then UK shipping is provided free of charge.  For my order, the shipping cost would be £5.00.

Delivery was prompt and my new canvas was well packaged.  I was a little concerned that the discounted pricing would mean my canvas wouldn’t be such good quality, but I really needn’t have worried.  The photographic reproduction is good and we’re all really pleased with the final result.  Even the subject approves!

As it’s becoming more and more apparent that we should all be wearing masks in shops (and in my opinion any indoor environment where social distancing can’t be kept to two metres) I wanted to make the idea a little easier for my son to cope with.  A personalised face mask seemed like a good idea and when I spotted the range that My Picture.co.uk have I knew they’d work well for us.

personalised face masks

The PREMIUM CUSTOMASK® face masks are suitable for anyone aged 6 years and over and feature elastic earloops. They are made of antibacterial material and are suitable for washing at 60 degrees C, they are not medical grade. They also come with a flexible metal nosepiece which I’ve found really useful as a glasses wearer – I’ve not experienced any fogging when wearing my mask.

You can either upload your own photo or pick from one of the pre-set patterns or designs to create your mask.  For my son we decided on a photo of his cat Paddington, the OH liked the Union Jack design and I couldn’t decide on which photo to upload so I settled on a graduated pattern of pinks and blues which I figured would go with pretty much anything I wear.

We’ve all found the masks comfortable to wear and they’ve washed well.  I’ve placed them inside a net laundry bag before putting inside the washing machine just in case the plastic adjuster ring on the straps come loose, but so far so good on that score.

  1. I’ve already used My Picture to get some canvases for my living room. I’d love to get some for the dining room.

    1. Id get one of our wedding pictures on canvas! Weve been married 9 years and still havent got any wedding pics on show!!

  2. I would get a canvas of my 3 daughters in the coliseum- it was our last holiday before lockdown and I’m not sure when we will get away again.

  3. I’d pick a design that reflected the great outdoors as it’s the theme I am using for my conservatory where it would go

  5. A set of smaller canvas prints would be lovely, at that price we could have one each of the children and the grandchildren

  6. I would love to have a canvas of my great grandson. He is three and growing so fast that it would be great to have a lovely memory of him when he was very small

  8. I would choose a canvas which showed memories from lockdown, like a collage of lockdown photos so we can remember this special time

  9. A canvass print of all the family for my nan as she would love this and hasn’t got one of all the grandchildren

  10. I love the photo blanket, I think it would be a great present for my animal loving friend Allisson, and I would put all her pets on it 🙂

  11. I would get a canvas picture of my family from our last holiday and display it in the living room

  12. I really like the acrylic prints. I would love to get one made with a picture of myself, partner, daughter and dog. I would put it above the sofa in the living room

  13. A canvas of my kids! We moved into our house last year but I only have one photo of my daughter up and none of my son!

  20. Picture / photo blanket for Mum (probably with a photo of one of the beloved pets). Maybe a mug for Aunty ( who is awaiting arrival of fact additions, not one, but two). She would love to see the a picture of the babies on a mug just for her. Cushions perhaps, help with relaxing comfort, whilst bring happy memories of loved ones through being photo cushions.

  21. Hello, I would probably spend the voucher on a photo cushion with a nice photo of some flowers that I took a few years ago. Thank you for the chance to win.

  25. I would purchase a canvas photo of our rabbit Tilly with my son Corey for his 14th birthday – He loves photo memories!

  26. I’d love to put this towards a blanket – always need a blanket in the winter on the sofa to snuggle up to and to have one with a fun photo on would be so cool.

  27. I would get some canvases made of more updated photos of my children, I’m not very good at printing off the millions of photos I take either!
