We received a custom canvas to facilitate this review. All opinions are honest and are our own.
Brian and I completed a BIG project this summer – a huge custom built-in bookshelf in our living room. We filled many of the shelves with books, but there are some larger areas that are intended to display art. These areas are unique sizes, so finding pieces to fit just right can definitely be a challenge.
I knew right away that I wanted a photo canvas for one of the spots, and I found out that CanvasPop could provide truly custom dimensions, allowing the canvas to fit perfectly within the shelves, with a 2″ margin on all sides. We love it!
The shelves of our built-in are a little less than 4″ deep so they can hold books but not stick out too far into the space. If we got a thin photo canvas, it might look a little too recessed, so this was something I was concerned about – until I went to place our order. CanvasPop offers a 2.5″ depth, which really gives a high-end feel.
Our canvas was hand-crafted, as evidenced by the seal placed on the back:
The hanging setup was sturdy and impressive – you could tell that it was prepared with care:
The edges of the canvas have the photo continuing around the sides, which I love. The only thing that is a little different is that the person creating our canvas mirrored the image to extend it out a bit, so there are two spots (one on the top, and one on the bottom) where you can see parts of the kids reflected. I haven’t ever seen this treatment for photo canvas sides before, so I wasn’t quite sure what I thought of that.
Overall, our canvas from CanvasPop is the highest quality canvas we’ve ever had. The canvas itself is thick and durable, the framing is top-notch, and as I mentioned, the hanging apparatus is really well done. The photo is a black and white image, and the tones are striking and have great contrast. The image is crisp and clear, and it makes a great statement in our living room.
If you’re wanting a truly custom canvas that can fit any space you have in mind, give CanvasPop a try!
