"These canvas prints are beautiful and nicely made. I like to add the frame. I bought a 16 x 16 inch framed print of our coach and his wife and son as an End of the Season thank you and the same size of a black & white print of two friends who recently got married. Everyone seems happy with their gift. Always order when the 50% off & free shipping coupons are available (ahead of the holidays)."
"We are so happy we ordered this and will order more. The photo wraps around the side of the canvas making it look impressive."
"I uploaded a picture right from my iPhone, I ordered a canvas and it came better than I imagined!"
"This canvas was everything I hoped it would be. I can't wait to see my cousins face! It's absolutely stunning. The pictures turned out nice & clear. The quality is great. I'm so excited about it and can't wait to give it to her! Thanks shutterfly for making memories that will last a lifetime."
"I hung it in my living room. Just beautiful."
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.
