Momma Told Me: The best gifts are personal.

Believe it or not, it's that time of year, yet again. Whether you want to think about it or not, the time has come to start squirreling away gifts for the holidays. This time, last year, I had 90% of my holiday shopping done, and the presents wrapped to boot! So, while I know I have a few months to go, I'm already feeling the squeeze of my Santa-like duties. There's just something about seeing those first pop-up displays of holiday greeting cards and ornaments on retail shelves (and it does get earlier and earlier each year, right?) The Type A inside me suddenly starts envisioning all of my neighbors with closets full of neatly wrapped gifts, myself the shame of the PTA, the only parent without the latest Monster High doll. I pull out that holiday checklist, muddled with coffee stains and melted candy cane shards and take a deep breath, it has begun.

Whether it's fair or not, I am a notorious bundler. That means, if your birthday falls even remotely around a Winter holiday, I will bundle your gifts together. I do this so I can rationalize spending a little more money on something nicer, than less money on trinkets and baubles one doesn't really need. This year one of the first people to be checked off my list was Sabrina's mother, alley neighbor and family member. Her birthday happens to fall smack daub in the middle of December; a jackpot opportunity to bundle. Months back I'd already promised her this gift, so it wasn't much of a head scratcher. When we had attended the Pirates! live dinner show in July she'd fallen in love with a shot I'd captured at the front gate. I vowed then and there to turn it into a piece of viable art for her living room. Photos on canvas are one of the simplest way to solve a necessary gift for a picky recipient. Even that person who 'has everything' can appreciate a pop art panel of their kitty, or a sentimental print of their newborn daughter.
Every year I buy near a half dozen canvas prints- the majority of which around this time. I buy small 8" x8" panels, giant 3 piece Triptychs and simple statement pieces for my own decor. As a blogger I take countless photos every day, let alone every year, and often have a wide variety of my own files to choose from. Ordering photo gifts online, however, doesn't require a professional photographer. Canvas Pop has an intuitive step-by-step photo on canvas designer that helps you pick the right finish, canvas depth, and even photo effects for your image. And, one of the things I appreciate most, there are clearly marked prices for any extra upcharges (extra depth, professional photo editing, etc). Canvas Pop is not the cheapest custom canvas vendor online; but they do have a lot going for them to argue the costs. While the base pricing is not outrageous, Canvas Pop does pride themselves on providing the top quality prints, made with love, and featuring a lifetime quality guarantee against issues such as fading.

Canvas Pop also ensures you have the perfect framing and color with visual digital proofs (free) and optional live support from a personal designer that will help you adjust styling and color to make your photo/art really pop. They'll even take a look (at your request) and adjust shadows/hue/red eye prior to printing, for free. One of the things I especially enjoyed about my Canvas Pop experience was the fact that our print came ready to mount, featuring high quality piano wire, rubber wall bumpers, and even a nail. There was also a little signature on the back, letting us know who had handmade our canvas print with so much love. Since this was one of the largest prints I've ever bought before, I'd been nervous about shelling out the extra dough for the additional inches- You simply never know how a clear photo will transition to canvas.

I think Canvas Pop did an amazing job! The colors are beautiful and vivid, the whites are extra bright, and the photo looks almost as gorgeous as it does on my screen at top resolution. As far as canvas printing experiences go, this was one of the easiest design processes, with absolutely no hidden costs, right up to checkout. The speed of processing was a mere days from digital too door, and there was no additional work on my part to mount or prepare the print. I was also very pleased with the transition of the vibrant image, through the printing process, and to such a large canvas.

A 30 x 40" print may not be the right budget for standard gifting, but Canvas Pop has a wide variety of pop art styling, image filters, and canvas sizes so you can create the perfect custom gift from virtually any image. Worried about photo quality? The upload system will automatically clear your image for sizing quality, and flag it if you should go with a smaller size print. In addition, different photo filters are suggested for lower resolution images, which really takes a lot of the guesswork out of ordering canvas online. I had a great experience with Canvas Pop, and will gladly order from them again. Their processing is fast, but always keep in mind that canvas printing companies experience higher traffic through the holiday season, and order your canvas gifts early!
