Throwback Thursday is the perfect reason to comb through your old picture files and find the motivation to scan in a few of your older negatives, but why limit your time with these old photos to social media? If you love your Throwback Thursday finds, print them as photos on canvas too! Your older photos of yourself, friends, and family can join your existing wall dcor as happy, fun memories of times and fashions past. This is a great opportunity to share your throwback photos with those who might not be on social media and gives you and your family a chance to look back at how far you’ve come throughout the week.

Throwback Thursday Photos on Canvas

It can be challenging to integrate photos that are substantially older than recent times with the new photos that you have hanging in your home. To sidestep planning and design quandaries around this integration, you can create a dedicated wall of photos on canvas with your Throwback Thursday finds.

  • Include #tbts from others. If your friends and family are on the Throwback Thursday wave ask if you can use a few of the photos that they have posted in your canvas wall.
  • Incorporate laughs. Photos with 80s hair or 70s polyester don’t deserve to be buried. Add an artistic filter for a lighter touch and include those photos in your canvas wall.
  • Use square canvas. The square format for #tbts on Instagram can be kept true with square photos on canvas that add to the retro feel of your throwbacks. Square photos on canvas can also mix easily with other canvas dimensions.

Pair Your #tbts with a Punch of Graphics

If you have a number of photos from the same time period that you keep returning to for your Throwback Thursday picks, printing these as photos on canvas with a few era-appropriate graphics, phrases or even dates is a great way to showcase a period that was particularly meaningful to you. Depending on the decade, you might create graphics to print on canvas of the technology, like neon corded phones and Apple 2C computers. Add popular phrases of the time onto a canvas, to add a spark of whimsy to your photo collection.
