"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."
"I was afraid that making the picture so large that the picture could have been distorted but it looks great."
"All the canvas art I have created from my photos are of the highest quality, and I am pleased and proud to have them grace my walls. Thank you, Shutterfly, for your bright orange packages. Every year since my granddaughter was born, I created calendars for all family members. After a vacation, I create a photo album. I have never been disappointed."
"THE COLLAGE CAME OUT NICE BOUGHT AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR MY FRIEND. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT."
Whether it’s your first year teaching for your 10th, you want to create an inviting environment that engaged your students and gets them excited about learning. These tips and tricks will help you design a room that is beautiful, fun and educational.
When it comes to color, think about the age group you teach. If your classroom is full of kindergarteners or first graders, a rainbow of primary colors works best because you can also use your décor for learning purposes. The older your students are, the more colors you can introduce. Use them to teach when age-appropriate, or if your students are teenagers, simply use the colors to brighten up the room.
Especially as children get older, they often find their desks aren’t large enough to hold everything. By hanging a work apron on each chair, you give them the extra space they need for custom notebooks or art supplies. If your students are older, use the aprons to hold textbooks or other material they may have trouble carrying between classes.
Start by peeling the labels off empty cans and washing them, making sure there are no sharp edges as you do so. Spray paint them in your favorite colors, fill them up with supplies such as pencils, pens, markers or anything else you may use in class, and then set them out for your students to use as needed. The colors brighten up the room, and if you’re worried about items disappearing, you can create a checkout system. After all, school supplies are expensive!
Classrooms have had posters hanging on the walls for decades, but why not try something unique by hanging a custom canvas print created with Shutterfly? You can use them to print your favorite inspirational canvas quotes, periodic tables, multiplication tables or anything related to the subject you teach. If you can afford to, you may even consider featuring a student’s artwork once per quarter or semester.
