Canvas Designs: My Own Custom Stretched Canvas

30x20" worth £29.99 Canvas gifted to me by CanvasDesign.co.uk
Earlier today I took delivery of my new printed canvas, which was kindly gifted to me by Loren at CanvasDesign.co.uk. She was nice enough to exchange emails with me and discuss the printing of one of my own photographs onto a canvas stretched onto a frame.

I am super impressed with the quality of the final product. The canvas is high quality and is stretched to fit a sturdy wooden frame which looks like it will last for a long while, which is always a plus! The image is one I selected from my Third Gender series, which was exhibited as part of my degree show. The image itself was scanned from 35mm film, with the film imperfections still on display (this was due to the process I was showing through my work, so any marks on the canvas ARE meant to be there). The printed image is clear, colour correct to the original file and looks wonderful on the quality canvas. My product is 30x20" and is worth £29.99.

Packaging which it was delivered in

The canvas arrived today, it seems to have been three days delivery due to the weekend, but I am positive it would have arrived in two, as promised on their website (please take into consideration the weekend posting schedule). Once it arrived the quality of the packaging was more than I expected, but incredibly appreciated. As you can see above, it came in thick padded cardboard on the outside and lots of bubble rap inside for even more protection.

Stretched canvas covers all sides of the frame
As mentioned previously, the quality of the finish is beautiful! The edges are smooth, stretched tightly and are pinned and taped down to avoid any fraying to the canvas itself. Since it's so smooth, it hangs flush to the wall, which makes for an easy hang and remains in place without much movement at all.

Canvas has neat corners, which helps product to be flush to the wall when hanging
Canvases start at £7.99 for a 6x6 canvas and can be printed to 72". I was insanely please with my canvas and will definitely be telling my family and friends about them and their excellent service.
