A Simple Photo Becomes Fabulous Art

If you follow me on instragram or Facebook you may remember me sharing this image - my new UPrinting canvas print!

Yep, I used UPrinting and had one of my photographs turned into a canvas! Seriously, I still can't believe the results! It's amazing.

So hear is how I order it it. I first went to UPrinting.com.

Selected canvas prints, then rolled canvas, and then chose the size I wanted.

I selected the 16x20. A little over $25, not too bad for custom artwork.

After that I selected the image that I wanted. And uploaded to their system.

Within a week or so the print was at my door and ready to be unrolled!

Seriously, as I mentioned above, I can not tell you how impressed I am with the quality of this canvas. And to think, I actually took this photo with just a regular point and shoot camera!

I had an extra frame that I wasn't using. I couldn't wait to see it all framed up.

I removed the glass and matte, and popped my new caves in the frame.

It was that simple!

It almost doesn't even look real in this pictures.

I love it!

Even though it looks amazing here, this probably isn't where this is going to stay.  I already have a series of three pictures already in this spot. (I cleverly cropped them out.)

But I know I want it in this space. It's too perfect!

Have you ever had one of your pictures printed on canvas?

If you want more information on UPrinting you can check out their site or visit them on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.

Looks gorgeous! My Oma & Opa had a print of theirs done, and it was MUCH more expensive than yours! This is super affordable!

It looks beautiful! I've had several pictures done through Canvas On Demand and have been thrilled with the outcome! I paid $45 (includes shipping) for a 16"x20" on stretched canvas for all the photos I've had done. Canvas On Demand regularly has this particular size as a Groupon so that's how I've always paid such low prices. The regular price for this size is $126 so I feel like I get quite a bargain. :) I'd be happy to send you a picture of the canvases I've had done, just not sure how to send them. :)

At any rate, the prices you paid for the rolled canvas are pretty phenomenal! I am definitely going to have to try this out!
