There are many forms of love. But there is only one love that is unbreakable and that is a mother’s love for her child. It is the purest and strongest love and should be reciprocated with the deepest gratitude. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and should be celebrated by giving her a gift that she will treasure forever. A gift that is strong and durable like her love. A gift that is timeless because it captures a moment that she holds dear to her heart. A gift that will genuinely surprise her because it is your unique and creative idea. That is, a custom canvas print designed specially for Mothers Day.
Choose the Image:
The first step to customizing a canvas print is choosing a photo. Brainstorm the type of image to use for the custom canvas print. It can be a photo of you and mom posing together. It could be her favorite quote on a photo background. Any image that would be fitting for the occasion, just have fun and get creative!
Upload the Image:
Once you have an image in mind, visit canvasgicleeprinting.com and click on the Get Started button to upload the image. Make sure to upload a high resolution image file. The higher the resolution, the more size options you will have to choose from.
Choosing the print size is a very easy process considering the many size options available. Standard sizes are listed based on the aspect ratio of the image you uploaded. It automatically calculates what sizes the image can be printed from mini size prints to large format prints. Type in a custom size, and you will see how the image changes to fit this size. Use the cropping tool to create your desired layout. Once you get the formatting the way you like it then choose the print medium.
Canvas & Stretcher Bar:
For a canvas medium, you have the option of gloss or satin surface texture. Both types of canvas holds inks in a vibrant, clean, crisp manner. Gloss canvas has a bit more luster to it than satin canvas. After choosing your canvas type, decide on the stretcher bar thickness, 1.5 inch or 0.75 inch. The stretcher bar is made of strong, sturdy poplar wood and is custom built to fit your desired size. The canvas is wrapped tightly around the stretcher bar, stapled, taped and wired for a finishing clean-cut look.
Next, decide on the image wrap design. Gallery-wrapped canvas prints allow for printing along the edges. There are three types of edge wrap designs: color wrap, image wrap or mirrored wrap. The color wrap design is a basic solid color. When selecting color wrap, the prominent colors in the picture are chosen by default but you can easily change the colors by selecting any color of your choice. With the image wrap design the full image will continue to the edges of the wrap resulting in a portion of the image lost to the sides of the canvas. This works well with a picture that has no critical information near the edges. With the mirrored wrap design, a portion of all four edges are cloned to the side wrap. No part of the image is lost to the face of the canvas. This works well with images where the subject is near the center of the picture and far away from the edges.
Ship the Print:
After placing your order, you will await a museum quality, custom canvas print. The print is packaged with the utmost care and is ready-to-hang when arriving at your door. But what if you cannot personally hand the gift to your mother? You have the option to ‘drop ship’ the print to your mother’s house. Simply input her address as the shipping address and the canvas print will ship directly to her door. You can play secret admirer by leaving your name off the package. Let her guess which one of her loving children surprised her. If you are an only child, her guess will be quite easy!
Custom canvas prints are great keepsakes that will melt her heart when she sees her favorite picture printed on it. Although there is no gift that will ever measure up to her love, a custom canvas print can be a symbol of your appreciation that she is your mother.
