The Best Way to Commemorate Your Graduate is with Canvas Prints

by Eric Von Lehmden | April 16, 2012

It's hard to believe that another school year is nearly done. And with the end of the school year comes the end of a chapter in many kids lives. Graduation. They could be graduating from High School or College, either way it is a pretty big deal. I remember my graduation from High School and all the gifts from well wishers. If I remember correctly I got about 4 Cross pens, a dozen towels, a hamper, and a dorm fridge. All very nice gifts and yes, they all came in handy...minus the three extra Cross pens.

Coming in handy is nice...but if you really want to make your graduation gift stand out, then think about giving the graduate or even the graduate's parents a custom photo canvas. You may have to do a little due diligence to get a photo to put on the canvas, but who ever said giving a thoughtful gift was easy. These days you can most likely get a photo emailed to you by the grad's parents or from the grad themselves. Then just head on over to canvaspress.com, upload your photo, choose your size and we will take care of the rest for you (you still get to be the hero though).

If it is just too difficult to track down a photo to use don't worry, gift cards are the next best thing. Give us a call (888.784.5553) and we will get you hooked up with a gift card your favorite grad or his/her parents. See, either way, we've got you covered.

Here are a few ideas for photos on canvas for the graduates:

  1. Walking the stage.
  2. Photo of the family (to take with them to college or into their first place after college).
  3. Photo of them with their friends.
  4. Them with the family pet.
  5. Them with their boyfriend or girlfriend (how about a nice 4x6 photo)
  6. Photo of their dream car (guys) or inspiring piece of art (girls or guys)

Now here are a few ideas for the canvas print for the parents of the grad:

  1. A High School Senior portrait.
  2. A College Senior portrait.
  3. Walking the stage.
  4. Cap and Gown portrait.
  5. A collage of photos from 1st grade through 12th. A family member probably has access to these photos. You want to see tears in their eyes, this one is guaranteed to do the trick.

You are now armed with several ideas for canvas prints to give to a grad. We wish you...and all the graduates this school year all the best.
