The Hello Canvas Review & Giveaway!

I have always loved plastering photos all over my walls, and just seeing all the faces of the people I love at every turn. Since having Leo, this passion has grown and the need to have as many images of my beautiful boy around me, always puts a big smile on my face.

I love photo canvas's and I think they are a truly beautiful way to present your most favourite photographs. Holidays, the birth of a baby and so on, canvas's really bring the picture and memory to life.

The thing that often puts me off purchasing a photo canvas is the price...

However I have very recently discovered Hello Canvas who are One of the largest canvas suppliers throughout the UK, and their prices are very competitable and also very reasonable upon comparison to other companies.

We have been sent a 24 x 32 canvas so we can share our personal experience with you all. I have to start by saying that I was simply bowled over when it arrived. The picture looks stunning and I could not wait to get it onto the wall.

The canvas frame is completely perfect, it has been constructed with care and it is finished off very neatly. The photo has been transferred onto the canvas with great detail, and this shows through in the finished product. It all looks amazing.

A 24 x 32 canvas starts from £49.00 including delivery, and there are options to have extras details added on such as colour effects and background options. The Black and White with colour highlight option is available for an additional £15.00 - this option really stands out in a photo where you have bright colours and then the contrast against the Black and White. This would have given our canvas a electric atmosphere with the colours on Leo's shirt.

 The price is brilliant for such a large canvas with such quality all the way through, the size of this canvas compared to Leo, is actually the same height as him. Trouble doubled....I have had to take a double look...Just to make sure there is only the One of him!

The canvas arrived with a courier, very well packaged in a appropriate sized box, completely covered in bubble wrap. It arrived in perfect condition and was ready to be placed onto a wall fitting the importance of a canvas this beautiful.

Hello Canvas truly reach out to their customers, and with all the options available to you when sending your photo in for print, there is no disputing that:

- Uploading via your computer
- Send in the post (Printed, CD, DVD, USB)

For a full list of prices, you can visit Hello Canvas's site right here.

Now I am aware that you can purchase a beautiful canvas on a budget, I will be making it my personal mission to order some more, to kit out all those bare walls just screaming for some photo love.

What better way than to fill them up with some fabulous family photos!?


How would you like the chance to win a Hello Canvas with your most memorable photo? It could be that one holiday snap that always melts your heart, or that once in a life time cuddle with your newborn bundle.

Did I mention the genourous size of the canvas up for grabs?

I didn't? Well... You could have your favourite photo on a 20x28 inch canvas print! A print worth £49.00!
