Personalised Canvases For The Home

It’s safe to say that I have just as many pictures of my puppies on my phone as I do my own children; there’s something magically innocent, playful and loving about taking pictures of your loved ones and immortalising them in print – whether they have two legs or four!

Whilst my home is adorned with pictures of my two children as they grow throughout the years, I realised that I have no printed pictures of my pets. My daughter Millie and I made it our craft project during quarantine to photograph and design a cheerful puppy canvas for our home and we had the most fantastic time!

Our first task was to find a pretty spot to take pictures of our pets, for which we’ve seen so many on our daily walks in the woods. With social distancing in place we are thankfully able to still walk the dogs safely outside whilst getting fresh air and exercise as nature is a very big part of our life and certainly something that we want to bring inside our home with wallart also.

Finding a pretty mossy log nestled amongst the beautiful bluebells we set upon the task of capturing pictures of our four pups which in itself was an hilariously joyful task – I can totally sympathise with school photographers!

The Online Photo Upload Feature Is Quick And Easy To Use

We have so many pictures on our phones of the puppies playing, sleeping, eating and having fun, which we adore and are wonderful memories; however we wanted to create a themed canvas with all of the backgrounds unified so set upon a photography project which was a great way to pass time together as a family on a sunny afternoon during quarantine.

Whilst you can purchase professional cameras and tripods for home photography projects, we simply used my iPhone11 Pro on portrait mode which makes the photos look instantly artistic at the push of a button – rather than fussing about with settings and adjustments whilst keeping playful puppies sitting still and looking into the lens.

When selecting pictures for photo-upload to print onto canvas it’s important to have a high print quality with your photo being well lit and clear. Most websites perform a quality check during the upload process and will alert you to poor images before you proceed, which leaves you with the option of losing clarity, choosing another picture or selecting a smaller canvas size so that the image is as clear as possible.

We Were Able To Preview Different Finishes & Sizes For Our Artwork

After browsing online we came across a company called Photowall who specialising in wall murals, wallpaper, canvas prints and posters and their prices are very reasonable with free UK shipping within 1–2 days which was perfect for our project.

The Photowall website is very sleek, nature-inspired and easy to use with images for inspiration and fully customisable products. Using Adobe Illustrator on my Mac I simply aligned the puppies photos and set my canvas size to save my photo which my daughter enjoyed taking part in as she uses similar software at school.

I’ve had bad experiences before when ordering products online that look great on a website but really don’t match up to the same quality in real life. Photowall only use the highest quality materials and printing for their canvas prints and carefully pack their prints within paper in a durable cardboard box made of recycled materials to keep them super safe in transit and environmentally friendly.

Our Canvas Arrived Within 2 Days Of Placing Our Online Order

If you want to create a personalised photo collage within a canvas or wallpaper, don’t have or know how to use photo editing software – or don’t have a teenager to hand to help you – then you can take advantage of their expert photo editors who can edit colours, add or remove objects and change the dimensions of the image to fit the size of canvas that you require. You simply send them your image and tell them what changes you want.

You can choose to combine a selection of photos to fill a canvas or use just one image to suit your needs and the style of your home, it’s totally up to you. After you upload a photo or illustration you can then choose the size of the canvas print, decide on the edge of the frame and add it to your basket. As soon as the order is placed it is then printed and shipped and it’s as simple as just a few clicks.

Within a couple of minutes my design was complete, uploaded to Photowall, ordered and ready for processing. Photowall pride themselves on high quality prints with fast delivery which is always free.

Our canvas arrived just two days later, super speedy despite being in lockdown, and Millie and I set upon hanging it the very same day. Packaged carefully into a rectangular cardboard box, the canvas print came wrapped and protected by paper with pre-cut and drilled wooden frame sections, metal corner plates and bolts and fixings and hangings for the wall as well as super clear and concise instructions.

We’ve never constructed a canvas before so this was a fun little project for us – and let’s face it, if we can do it then literally anybody can! It took just a handful of minutes from start to finish and gave us such a sense of pride and achievement to have completed every stage in the design, construction and hanging of our treasured family wall art.

We Love Our New Wall And It Looks Fantastic In Our Home

The assembly consists of six super-easy steps which involve placing the canvas face down on a flat clean surface, peeling off the sticky tape along the edge of the wooden frame pieces, sticking the frame in place and folding the corners of the canvas over the frame, folding the frame inwards to stretch the canvas, fixing the corner plates in place with the bolts and hanging the canvas onto the wall with the accompanying hanging solutions.

We love how bright, bold, beautiful and colourful our canvas looks on the wall and it’s a joy to see our four pretty puppies smiling back at us each day. The print quality is astounding with every detail, flick of fur and twinkling eye being so vivid and lifelike; a wonderful way to immortalise our fur-babies forever and show them how much they mean to us as well as make every visitor, and ourselves included, ohh, ahh and aww over how adorable it looks!

How many wonderful, cute and quirky photos do you have on your phones camera roll waiting to be turned into treasured wall art?
