Big canvas prints from Canvas Press

Pulling the trigger on large pieces of artwork can sometimes be an overwhelming decision. What image to choose, will the photo look good as a large canvas, and will it look good on my wall are the main concerns for most who are thinking about making a statement with a big canvas print. Those are extremely valid concerns and hopefully I can show you some of the benefits of going big with your photos and have them printed on canvas with us. Especially right now while we have our Deal of the Month going on. 40% off any canvas print that is 30"x40" or larger.

Personally, I am a big fan of big prints. Especially for large blank walls. Putting up a few 11x14 prints (canvas prints or framed prints) can often get swallowed up by a decent sized wall. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider large canvas prints.

  1. It is a fantastic way to make an visual impact on an empty wall.
  2. A unique way to inject your style & design sense into your home.
  3. Large canvas is extremely light and much easier to install than wallpaper or heavy framed artwork and mirrors.
  4. It can add sense of elegance, adventure, or fun depending on the artwork or photo you choose.
  5. Helps add visual depth to your space. Meaning it gives the eye a place to rest while theymove through the room.

Those are just a few reasons why I love going big when it comes to art on walls. The added bonus with us is that you can taylor the artwork to the size of your wall. Our custom sizes let you fill odd sized spaces along with the relatively normal wall over the bed or couch in your home.

Now, if you are still wrestling with which image to choose, we would love to help. Contact us at support@canvaspress.com or give us a call at 888.784.5553. If you have several images you are trying to narrow down we can take a look and based on where you might be hanging it in your house we can help narrow that down.

As I mentioned above our Deal of the Month is going on right now and ends on February 26th at midnight. Head over to canvaspress.com for more info on the sale.

Some DSLRs have trouble with auto focusing in darker situations (ie events at night). If your lens can't capture focus on something try switching to manual focus and if you know you are usually about 10 feet away from your subject then move the lens to the 10ft mark on the barrel. Set your aperture for f4 or f5.6. This increases your chance to have most everything from 6-13 feet in focus (depending on your lens). And you will probably need to use your flash as well.
