"One of your photos on canvas. Makes your photos more like "real art"! I was completely blown away by the first Canvas Print I designed and ordered. It arrived and seriously looked like an artist had done a portrait on canvas. I gave it to my mom for Mother's Day! She absolutely loves it. I was even more blown away by the second Canvas Print I designed and ordered. I gave this one to my wife as a gift. It is the first picture of us she has wanted to display in our home. She is very picky when it comes to pictures, photos and artwork. She loves the canvas, the picture quality and the thick frame. The Canvas Print is a conversation piece. Everyone who comes to our home asks about and typically throws out compliments. I used different frames on each, which gave each a distinct look. I will be making some more art via the Design Your Own Canvas Print in the very near future. I highly recommend."
"I am a retired professional photographer. It should go without saying that I grew up in the film age. In the age of film paper and chemicals we would print on the paper separate the image layer of the paper from the backing. Heat and pressure mount the emulsion side to the canvas stretch it and attach it to the stretcher frame. We would then spray with a lacquer to give the appearance of a brush stroke. So much for history. I've had some experience now with the digital age and the newer canvas printing methods and I can say that Shutterfly canvas prints are as good (for the most part) as prints coming out of the pro labs. Given a good or marginally good image Shutterfly will return you a good print. So with all this praise I have given Shutterfly why only four stars? The question of archival quality or how long the print will retain its color quality has not yet been answered to my satisfaction. I will get back to you when I turn 165 with my answer. In the meanwhile go ahead and order the prints from Shutterfly."
"Ordered a photo book which had the usual good quality but I was pleasantly surprised with the pictures on canvas. Perfect print, nice frame, it even comes with the hook to put it up. My compliments !"
"I sent a print of a painting done by my aunt. The quality of the canvas was excellent, but the canvas is folded around a wooden frame so a good inch, inch and a quarter around the perimeter of the painting was cut off as it was folded around and stapled to the back of the frame. I would have liked the whole print facing forward."
"Must buy!!! Use a high quality photo and you will be pleasantly surprised by quality!"
There’s no better way to decorate a home than with a blue tone. Not just for boys anymore, this color has transcended from masculine and dominant to become a versatile hue that can be used almost anywhere. This guide will provide you with three ways to incorporate blues into your home that will leave you feeling comfortable and relaxed.
As one of the biggest colors in decorating, blue is everywhere. You can find it in sheets, towels, dishes and paint, but you need to be careful how you apply blue to your household, as it can send the wrong message or leave you feeling bluer than blue. Here are three ways to use this hue and achieve the perfect space.
Have you seen the way a light, gentle blue color can transform a space into a calm sanctuary? Light hues of blue remind people of the sky and sea; places that invite you to sit, relax and enjoy the view. Consider adding some mild blue tones into a room with whites, butter yellows and greys.
Blue doesn’t have to be genial. It can definitely have a mind of its own and dominate a space. For a fun pop of color, add touches of bright blue to a room. Consider blue canvas prints from Shutterfly so you can customize the look of your custom wall art.
Blue is so versatile that you can use several shades in the same space and still come out looking great. Mix steel blue with a sky blue for a fun interaction, or try adding different custom artwork or pictures with various hues for a unique look.
It’s hard to go wrong with blue tones. They provide welcoming warmth to any space that invites family and guests to get truly comfortable. Use blues and you won’t be disappointed. Happy hue hunting.
