"Color and quality are excellent, I will definitely buy more canvas prints."
"My mom asked for a small print of my Eiffel Tower photo. Instead, I enlarged it on a canvas print which I'll give to her for Christmas. Perfect."
"It is a gift for a family member."
"I needed this canvas within a certain timeframe and not only did I receive it sooner than expected, but it turned out beautiful!!! It was a gift for my best friend who's 3 month old had open heart surgery. She hung it in her room right away and loved it! I was so thrilled to be able to give her such an amazing birthday present that was so meaningful and turned out so nice! Thank you Shutterfly!!!"
"I have been getting canvas prints for above our mantel. I recently purchased a family portrait. Though I would purchase full price, Shutterfly always has great sales. The picture quality and colors are great. It is a great addition to our collection would highly recommend."
If you’ve just moved into your first apartment, you’ve probably noticed the lease has a clause about damaging the walls by adding pictures. If you still want to hang photographs or art, don’t worry. There are ways to do it.
If you have small, light art in light frames, adhesive hangers will work well to hold it in place without adding any damage to your walls. While they do come in a variety of sizes and weight specifications, they aren't recommended for anything very heavy or fragile. Still, when used in accordance to directions, they can last for quite a long time and won't leave behind residue when you pack to move to a new place.
If you are the creative type, you may already have washi tape around the house. If not, it’s available in craft stores. Washi tape has a strong enough adhesive for you to hang bare photos or posters on the wall and use the tape as a frame. Because it’s available in a wide variety of widths, colors and patterns, you can likely find something that will match the rest of your décor.
If your lease doesn’t specifically say no holes in the walls, you may be able to use thumbtacks, staples or wires to hang your photographs and art. If you use this method, be sure to measure and mark off where you want your décor to hang to avoid putting unnecessary holes in the wall. Keep in mind you will still be responsible for filling and spackling tiny holes when you move to avoid losing your deposit.
Deciding what to hang can sometimes be the tricky part. Shutterfly offers a range of discount canvas prints that allow you to print your favorite photographs, as well as art pieces or even quotes. Use them unframed for something light to hang on your rental’s walls.
