I normally prefer the tangible items over the blah gift cards in my monthly Popsugar box, but the month of November was an exception. In addition to a soft and lovely scarf and a pretty Illume candle, I got a $30 gift card for Canvas Pop, an online photo-to-canvas service.
Intrigued by the name, I checked out their website (bonus: it’s a beautifully designed site with a great user flow!) and was surprised to see that they specialize in Instagram photos-to-canvas prints. They have 2 sizes available, 12x12 (which is on special right now for $39.95) and 20x20 for a pricier $114.00. This threw me a bit since Instagrams aren’t high resolution images and normally don’t transfer well to larger sizes, especially a canvas. I chatted with one of the online agents (I LOVE that chat feature on sites, by the way) and they assured me that the quality is still great. Taking their word for it, I perused my Instagram pics, selected the ‘Float On’ pic and ordered one 12x12 canvas for myself and two other photos as Christmas gifts (shh, it’s a surprise!).
I’m still a bit skeptical if the quality of the 12x12 prints will be great, but I’ve got my fingers crossed! If all goes well, I’m sure this will be my go-to service for unique, personalized gifts.
After I purchased my canvases, it gave me a link to share which I posted to Facebook. Happily, someone used my link to make a purchase (thank you, whoever you are!) and I have $50 off (!!) my next purchase. I think I’ll be ordering this print on a canvas from them, featuring the stunning patterns, textures and colors from my trip to the Middle East earlier this month
I’ve been tracking my package and my canvases should arrive by the end of the week!
Here’s a hint if you’re considering a canvas print: I’ve been on their site every day this week, and they are ALWAYS running the 30% off deal. It apparently does not expire at midnight.
