Affordable, Quality Canvas Prints from Canvas on the Cheap


I know I have mentioned it many times on my blog about how I truly love to take pictures. Honestly, my indoor pictures (like photos of products I am reviewing) are always horrible. I don’t really know why (poor lighting I guess). On the other hand, I am very proud of my nature and animal photography. I’d like to think some of them turned out pretty amazing (patting myself on the back – ha ha).

The problem with taking so many photos is that they all end up on my computer, one of my many external hard drives, flash drives and/or phone. That is where they sit indefinitely. It’s great to be able to look at them, but with so many pictures, it’s hard to find the ones that you like the most.

I try and share my favorite photos on my personal Facebook page. At least I can easily (almost) find my favorites without having to scroll through hundreds, if not thousands, of photos.

One of my photos I am most proud of. It’s not edited. I took this through it’s pen and it just happened to be dark behind him so it framed his (or her) head perfectly. Hello National Geographic… I’m waiting for you to call me. LOL!

I’ve always wanted to display my personal favorites, but how? I really didn’t want to upload my photos to a photo printing place, search for frames they can fit in (not to mention the expense of frames), and hammer nails into my walls. What I needed was a better, easier and more affordable alternative.

I had the idea of displaying my photos on canvases. They are not only affordable, but they also don’t need frames and depending on the size, you can hang them up with a simply tack. In fact, many of my canvas prints are hung up by a single tack or two (depending on the size).

I was asked if I wanted to review canvas prints form a company called Canvas on the Cheap. Since I have been wanting to have some of my photos turned into canvas prints, this was the perfect opportunity. The hard part was picking out which of my photos I wanted to display and where.

We live in a tiny condo. We don’t have much wall space available (most walls have some kind of art work on them). I decided that I wanted to to use part of the dining room as my “photo gallery.”

Canvas on the Cheap offers canvas prints in a nice array of sizes, from 8″ x 8″ up to a whopping 30″ x 40″ (that’s huge!).

Their prices are amazing. I have never seen canvas prints this affordable before.

I knew I had only a limited amount of wall space to use, so I opted for 8″ x 8″ canvas prints, however I did make a few of them a bit larger to mix things up a bit.

Using Canvas on the Cheap couldn’t be any easier. You simply select the size you want from the various options, and then upload your photo. Don’t worry if you change your mind on the size. Once you upload the photo you can change the size of the canvas print on the next screen.

You can upload photos from your computer, or from your Instagram account.

Once uploaded you can rotate, crop and/or re-position the photo to make it look the way you want it to.

When you are satisfied you can move on to the next step when you select the type of “wrap” you want, frame or not frame, and backing. I went with all the standard options.

After that simply add the image to your cart and check out, or you can choose to make more canvas prints.

I was pleased with how quickly my prints were sent to me (and I created a lot of canvas prints).

I examined each one to check for any manufacturing defects in the wood frame (canvas frame) or the canvas it’s self. Everything looked perfect.

The quality of the images also turned out great. The images were crisp and clean and the colors were wonderful.

I am very pleased with how all of my canvas prints turned out from Canvas on the Cheap. So much so that I am planning on ordering MORE prints from them in the near future (family photos next time around).

Can you tell I have a thing for animals and nature?

The lighting is a bit “off” in the photos because I took the photos off my Instagram account where I used a filter to lighten the image (it was a bit dark to begin with).

All of the photos you see in the above pictures are from Canvas on the Cheap EXCEPT the large tiger and the butterfly.

It’s hard to tell from the photo but the eagle canvas is larger than the other ones that surround it.

These are not all my Canvas on the Cheap canvas prints. I have another larger one with our cat’s image on it (he was put to sleep a few months ago) and another butterfly and a photo of me and my brother who passed away in June on another way (I won’t show my brother’s image for obvious reasons).
