Have Your Memories Printed on Canvas with BestCanvas Canada!
09 Sep 2019
Disclaimer: I was given a canvas print to review from BestCanvas.ca. All opinions are my own.
The amazing thing about pictures is they not only speak a thousand words, but they are invaluable memories that cannot be replaced. It reminds you of places you have been, and the the story that accompanies that location or event.
But in the digital age we now live in, more and more people post the pictures they take to social media or just keep them stored, rather than get them printed.
We too have been guilty of this. I take a ton of pictures, and save them all on hard drives at home, with back-up copies saved to our off-site RAID and cloud storage.
This year alone, I went to Colorado and Philadelphia, took over 5000 photos of my travels, and have yet to print even one photo.
In the past, when I was shooting with a film camera, I would be much more selective, have everything printed, and showcase them in a photo album. Now, I try to get the perfect shot, but also take as many as I can. Just in case someone’s eyes are closed, someone walks in front of the shot, or if the light is just not right. I can usually fix these issues later in Photoshop, but having many photos allows me greater freedom in the editing stage.
When BestCanvas Canada reached out to ask if I would like to review their products, I was ecstatic! I have always admired canvas prints at friend’s places, but have never got any printed myself. Well that was about to change.
But I wanted something different. I wanted something that was very personal to Wendy and I. So I designed something to commemorate our relationship. Taking an idea I saw online, I created an image of where we met, where I proposed to her, and where we got married, all with dates and maps. As Wendy is a cartographer, I knew she would love this.

Showcase Your Best Pictures on Canvas
When our canvas prints arrived, I was amazed at the quality. The print was beautiful, the canvas was stretched around the frame as I had ordered it, and the frame was solid and sturdy. I ordered the hanging hardware to mount it on the wall, which was quite easy to install.
The look on Wendy’s face when I gave it to her was priceless.
We take a lot of pictures, but it has been a while since we had some printed. A long while. The kids were much younger.
It got me thinking of not only which pictures I would like to have printed next, but where I can hang them, or who I can gift them to.
