Back when I worked at the interior architecture firm, I remember getting things ready for the launch of the new Houston studio. We needed quick art for the party so I took several images from the portfolio and printed them in large format on canvas. What felt like only one hour before the event, we then stretched and stapled the canvas on hand-made frames from wood purchased at Home Depot. Shockingly, the DIY amateur project looked good enough to impress the eyes of competing designers. Since then, I’ve had friends replicate the same technique with their own images for quick artwork for their living room. It’s quite remarkable how professional the finished product looks strictly with the canvas texture. However, finding a source to digitally print on canvas wasn’t the easiest, but that has now changed.
Canvas Pop is an online business that makes it simple to take any digital image and convert it to instant art. In three steps, you upload the image of your choice in any resolution, select a size and thickness for the wrap of the canvas and frame, then pay for your order. 8″x10″ format starts at $49. You can easily have one image diced into two panels or more for a modern effect. Shipping is via UPS at a flat rate of $14 (free if ordering more than one).
Imagine the possibilities for your office – an enlarged portrait of your child; a favorite landscape shot from vacation; an abstract art image that makes for a bold statement; a picture of yourself?
