A few weeks ago I ordered a canvas from HelloCanvas who I hadn’t actually heard of before but they are apparently the worlds largest creator of photo on canvas prints. I’ve been so impressed with them – my canvas arrived really quickly and it looks good. I wasn’t sure that the photo I chose would work on canvas but I actually really like it. It’s one of the photos we took in Thailand and it’s nice to have a memory of our holiday on the wall. Not that it is actually on the wall yet – I’m going to give it to Nick for Christmas!
Our canvas is 50x70cm and cost £37. HelloCanvas do lots of other sizes though ranging and the prices range from £13 to £99. HelloCanvas remove red eye and dates for free which is handy and you can get different effects put on your photos. There is also the option to get a frame. I like buying gifts like this for people and will definitely use HelloCanvas again!
A few weeks ago I ordered some Christmas presents from Bonusprint and I’m really pleased with how good they look.
The first thing I got was a calendar for my Nan with photos of her lovely grandchildren! The calendar was so easy to make once I’d chosen the photos and there were a good choice of backgrounds. I love how colourful the calendar is and all of the photos have show up really well. The calendar I chose is A4 size and cost £11.99 plus postage. I preferred using Bonusprint to Albelli which I reviewed here as I didn’t have to download anything and there weren’t quite so many options making it much easier.
I also ordered an acrylic print which I’m so, so, so impressed with! It has turned out tons better than I thought it would! I haven’t got a photo of it here for you as the person it’s for has been known to read my blog! All you have to do is upload your photo and choose a size so it’s really simple to do. There are 8 sizes available – I ordered the 41x30cm which cost £74.99. They aren’t cheap but the finish is brilliant. The colours are really strong and vibrant and on the photo I’ve chosen there seems to be some sort of effect making it look 3D from some angles! The print didn’t take long at all to be delivered and it was really well packaged so there wasn’t a chance of it being broken in the post.
If you’re stuck for ideas, Bonusprint is without doubt worth having a look at as there are loads of lovely photo gifts at a huge range of prices and the service is really good too.
