Photo Canvas Giveaway

I was recently approached by Easy Canvas Prints to see if I would like to be given a free photo canvas which I would then do a product review about on my blog.   I was indeed very interested as I love photo canvases, however it turned out I'm not eligible because I live in Canada (don't get me started on how often this happens to us here in Canada).  While the company ships to Canada, the product reviews are only available to be shipped to US addresses.   Megan (yep I know her personally now) and I emailed back and forth and after some discussion Easy Canvas Prints have generously agreed to let me give away a 16 x 20 inch photo canvases to one of you lucky US readers.




I love photo canvases and last November bought one from another company (only because I hadn't heard of Easy Canvas Prints I hasten to add) to give to hubby for Christmas.   I chose one of our favourite photos taken at our Georgian Bay cottage which we now have hung in our family room so we can enjoy it.  We love the canvas texture and that the photograph wraps around the edge of the frame so you don't have to frame the picture.  There is something so modern and almost unexpected about displaying photos this way.


EasyCanvasPrints
With Easy Canvas Prints there are three border options - you can have the photo wrap around the edge; or have a mirror image of your photo along the edge; or have a coloured border. 




You can see the edge of the one I had made in the photo below.  I love the look of the trees and rock wrapping around the edge.




As for the giveaway, it is only open to US residents (or Canadians who have a friend or relative in the States that it could be shipped to), which is very sad for the rest of us as the prints on the website look great (sniff, sniff).  


Here are the nitty, gritty giveaway details -to win a free 16 x 20 inches canvas print:  


1.  leave a comment letting me know what you would put on the canvas for one entry
2.  become a follower and let me know in a separate comment for another entry
3.  blog, tweet, or mention this giveaway on Facebook for another entry


Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win.  If I am unable to contact the winner via their blog or email, then after 24 hours a new name will be drawn.   The giveaway closes Friday, April 8th at 9:00 EST.


I'll have another giveaway soon for the rest of us. Promise!

  10. My sister passed away this past year, but she was an amazing photographer and left us many fantastic pictures. There is one picture in particular that she took of the Blue Ridge Mountains where it is so hazy that the colors almost blur together and it looks more like a painting than a picture. I would love to have a canvas of that for my living room.
