Canvas competition and review

I find photographs add to a post and help tell a story of our family and our outdoor adventures. I take a lot of photographs, working in and enjoying the outdoors gives me great inspiration and I really do enjoy taking photographs to remind me of the amazing sights I get to see.

It can be so easy to just keep your family images on the computer so when I saw a chance to review a specially design canvas from Canvas Design I thought it would be a great way of showing a favourite family photograph. Canvas Design is a family run business and prices for a canvas start from as low as £5.99.

It was hard deciding what image to display but after some careful choosing I decided on a fabulous image that truly showed my daughter in her element. Climbing a tree in a local nature reserve.

I have never ordered a canvas print so contacted Canvas Design and had my questions answered very quickly and also clearly. Also it was great for them to inform me that my image was great quality and would be fine to use for the canvas. I thought that was a plus, personal feel to my order.

After just 72 hours my canvas was delivered. The first thing I noticed was the packaging. The canvas was packed very well to ensure safe delivery. Layered with strong thick cardboard and then the canvas was wrapped safely in bubble wrap, well thought out for such a special and fragile package.

After carefully unwrapping our canvas we were instantly amazed with the results. A fantastic image of our daughter climbing and exploring a tree. The colours were great and vivid and the pixel exchange was flawless too. It was such a lovely way of seeing one of our favourite photographs and also gives us a chance to display the image in a lovely way.


Canvas Design are offering you the chance to win your very own canvas print. The competition is only open to UK residents only and the competition will finish on Friday 21st March. Good luck to everyone!

  1. The canvas is wonderful Kim. As you say, the colours have come out beautifully. I love canvases and have a beautiful one of Ju and myself and a gem of my daughter and son in law on their wedding day.Fantastic memories preserved and not easy to miss.
    It’s always a delight to hear about the times you and the family are out whatever the weather.

I love that photo as it represents so much and is the only photo i have of my whole family together in one shot x
