This is one of my favorite pictures of our two beautiful daughters!

It was one of those shots that just “happened”. We didn’t set out to take pictures, they were just enjoying each other’s company on the front porch one afternoon while I had my camera. At first it started like this

but after a few tries I got “THE” shot! you know, the one that you think “WOW I need to blow this up and put it on the wall” kind of shot.

I knew that I not only wanted this shot on my wall, but I thought it would be fun to have in a gallery wrapped canvas. I have always loved gallery wraps, but I’ve never had one myself. That’s when I found Canvas on Demand! can turn your photos into priceless art.

I uploaded my picture to their easy to use site, and in less than a week, they sent me back a stunning canvas of MY photo. The quality was phenomenal–it was even better than I had expected and in fact the portrait is now hanging in my new office in a spot of honor. It looks like I paid for a professional photographer and piece of art.

Imagine my excitement when this arrived at my house in just SIX short days!

I carefully removed it from all of the wrapping and was in awe of the size and quality!! I had to take a picture with Cullen sitting next to it, so you could see the size!

The corners are beautifully wrapped nice and tight!

Canvas On Demand offers your choice of PhotoRealistic (my choice), bringing your photo to full life, or Pixel Painting (brush stroke) , which appears to have been produced by delicate strokes of an artist’s brush. I then opted for Thick (1.5″) Gallery Wrapping (where the canvas is stretched over a wooden frame so that the edges of the material are drawn around it).

I had already converted my picture to black and white but Canvas on Demand can do that for you, as well as several other retouching services

Have questions or need help with your order? Not only does Canvas On Demand do a supreme job, but they have some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. They reply to your emails with lightning speed. I even received the following email from them just a few hours after placing my order:

Regarding your recent order, the image that you
submitted does not fit the exact proportions for
the size of canvas you have chosen. In order to
assure a good fit, we are going to make your
canvas a custom size of 16×24 instead of
16×20. We will do this at no additional charge
to you. Our goal is for you to be completely
satisfied with the finished product, so we just
wanted to keep you informed of this
modification. We will get started
immediately. We will do a great job for you!

And a GREAT job they did!! I am just in love with my canvas! I can’t wait to place another order, or two or three!! Wont these make GREAT gifts?! With Christmas quickly approaching I think I have the PERFECT gift in mind for a few people on my list!!

I love how you can see it walking down the hallway!?
