The Canvas Works were offering two things I love rolled into one - framed prints taken from my Instagram account, I really couldn't wait to see.
I was able to make my Instagram print and choose my pictures really easily through The Canvas Works website which they've recently had re-designed. The site looks so sleek, the photography on it is beautiful and most importantly it's so easy to use. I simply selected 'Framed' from the drop down product section and then clicked 'order now'. I choose the 'square' option as I preferred that look for the layout I was wanting to get but landscape and portrait options are also available. I then chose the 'grid' option, once again to suit the look I was going for but there are also single image and collage options available. The square framed option is 16X16 and comes available in a 2X2 grid, a 3X3 grid and a 4X4 grid. I chose the 3X3 grid as it was the layout which appealed to me most but it also meant that I could choose some more pictures yet still have them big enough to really stand out on the wall. Being a lover of the clean, white look to frame the pictures around my home I chose the white frame but there is also a black option available. When I had chosen all those options I was able to easily choose my pictures, I chose to use my Instagram account but you can also choose pictures from Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr, The Canvas Works website offers so many options. I was also able to arrange my pictures the way I wanted, being quite particular I wanted the black and white images to be across from each other and the same with the very colour pictures in my grid. Once I had chosen my pictures and decided my layout I was able to see a preview before ordering, even when I had just seen the preview I was so excited to receive my framed print.
My framed print features some of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account including the picture taken of Tyler Lee just after he was born and a picture from his first summer which were on my old phone and which I sadly lost so I am so happy to have these pictures framed. I love how amazing the quality of the printing is, the colour is so bright and vibrant and it really jumps out with the white background and frame. I was worried that the resolution of these images would be low quality as they were taken on my old phone which didn't have a very good camera but I had nothing to be worried about at all, The Canvas Works did a fabulous job. This framed print is now in Tyler Lee's room resting on his shelf amongst his treasured first possessions until I find somewhere in his room to hang it up. I think I'm going to put it above his cot and it will look beautiful there.
I highly recommend The Canvas Works to anyone who is looking for something special to display their pictures. I know the Instagram prints option would be very popular amongst my fellow bloggers and Instagram lovers. I also think that their framed prints would be such a beautiful wedding, birthday, christening or new baby gift. The quality is superb and I don't think there's a better gift than photography featuring someone's special moments. The 16X16 framed print is €68 and is available from The Canvas Works website along with a whole host of other photo display options. You can also find them on Twitter @thecanvasworks
