Canvas Factory for Christmas, it's Not Too Late + Giveaway

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We received a 16 x 20 Canvas Photo from Canvas Factory for a review.



I have seen some of the beautiful canvases people are hanging on their wall. I've been thinking I have to get in on that fun because they really are gorgeous. When Canvas Factory agreed to allow us to review one of their canvases I quickly began deciding which picture I'd like to hang on my wall. That is probably the hardest part if you take as many pictures as I do. I have many favorites. I finally decided it was the Christmas season and the perfect picture would be my son sitting on Santa's lap. It is an amazing picture. He wasn't scared at all, you can see the joy in his face. I'm so happy that I chose this one. I will treasure it always.

The Canvas Factory Website is user friendly.. just click “Let’s Get Started” and choose your creation! I chose the size n' style I wanted right away. It is so easy, you can quickly upload your photos. You have the options to have your canvas gallery wrapped, mirror imaged or a colored wrap. You also can choose from 15 different image effects., as well as use a high resolution photo.

The quality is amazing! The canvas comes with hardware on the back for easy hanging. I received the package in perfect condition. They wrap your canvas in plastic and mark the package as fragile so it is not damaged during the delivery. I would just advise removing the plastic with care.

Again, using the Canvas Factory Website is easy and safe. You can check out your purchase and create an account with them. You can make your payment securely using PayPal, Mastercard, or Visa. I suggest signing up for Canvas Factory's email newsletter. You will receive a discount on your order. I received emails with the status of my order, when it was complete and again when it was shipped. The orders are estimated to arrive in 3-7 days and the shipping price is under $15. It was great to know this information, especially during the holiday season when the postal service is so busy.

These would make the perfect gift for Christmas, a birthday, an anniversary or in my case just because I wanted one to hang on my wall for so long. Canvases are a great way to treasure your memories.
