One of my favourite things to do is get photos printed. While I love having photos on my laptop and phone and scrolling through them, there’s nothing quite like holding the physical images.
Our flat is absolutely filled with memories – we have photos of us from over the year, prints from the Wildlife Photography Exhibition that we’ve been to for the last few years, and I have plenty of art work from some of my favourite artists – utensils0 and Dorkface dotted around the flat.
Each photo, print, piece of art that I look at makes me smile, as each one holds a special memory, and I’ve started to make more of an effort to add to the photos we have printed.
In case I haven’t mentioned it enough, I got married a couple of months ago, and have been completely obsessed with my photos from the day ever since.
When Photowall got in contact with me, and asked if I’d like to have one of my photos printed onto canvas, I literally jumped at the chance.
Photowall is a Swedish company, and you can order canvases and murals from their website, either using one of their designs or by uploading one of your own images. I chose to get one of our wedding photos printed onto a canvas (a mural would have been cool, but for some reason, Sam was less keen on the idea of our faces being that big…)
I spent a lot of time deliberating over which photo to pick, but eventually I chose a photo of Sam and I posing outside our reception venue. I absolutely love the autumnal glow of the lights and the colours of the leaves on the trees.
When ordering your canvas, you could choose to just have the canvas roll, or opt to include the wooden frame to put it together yourself. I chose the DIY option, and when it arrived, (really fast delivery, I was very impressed) I stretched the canvas out and folded the edges over the wooden frame. It was really easy to do; it took me around five minutes to put together. They include the screws as well if you want to mount your canvas on the wall as it is quite heavy.
I was so impressed with the quality of the canvas. The photo came out beautifully. Our canvas size was 23”x15”, but you can choose to have it much bigger if you prefer! It’s now proudly hanging up on the wall in our living room, just by the window so it gets plenty of natural light.
I’m very grateful to Photowall to letting me order a canvas, and they’ve very kindly given me a 20% discount code, which is valid until 20th February 2018: TheHelsProjectCampaign2018.
