Turn your favorite photo into art

If you’re like me, you’re probably not all that good at remembering to get photos off your computer and into those photo books you’re always swearing you’re going to make. Heck, even remembering to order prints to frame can take me weeks or even months. But every now and then, there’s a photo that I know, immediately, is special. It’s one to center on the wall, or gift to the grandparents. It’s one meant to be turned into something really special. So then what do you do?

Turn it into art, of course. And if you want to turn your photos into canvas prints, Easy Canvas Prints is ready to take you through the process of turning that photo into a one-of-a-kind canvas masterpiece, easily.

This week, one lucky Want Not reader is going to win a custom 8″x10″ canvas courtesy of Easy Canvas Prints—if you win, you’ll pick the photo, they’ll do the rest. All you need to do is check them out on Facebook and then leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, June 23rd, 2011 for an entry. I’ll select the winner via random number generation and gallery-worthiness. (But you’re all gallery-worthy, so probably just the random number thing.)

Ready? Go!


  1. Love these! Thanks for the contest Mir.

  2. I have something like 1,295,653 photos of my kid. Ten of them are printed and in frames. True story.

  3. The hard part will be picking the photo.

  4. It may or may not be true that the only photo of my baby (14 months old today) we have in our house is one that was gifted to us for her 1st birthday. We are in desperate need of some decor help!

  5. I have a few good pictures that I would love to have on canvas. This would be awesome. I agree with Rachel, though, it will be tough to pick out the photo.

  6. LOVE these! I have the cutest kids in history, so this would be fun. 🙂

  7. This would be fabulous for the family photos we just had done!

  8. This would be so awesome. 🙂

  9. Yes please, and thank you! This might be the inspiration I need to finally create that cool wall collage over my couch.

  10. These look fantastic – what a cool prize/product.

  11. That is pretty cool.

  12. I can’t even remember the last time I had any prints made. In fact, (sadly) every single picture of my almost 6-month-old is in digital form, only. I would LOVE a canvas print of all three kids!!!

  13. Maybe I’ll finally be able to get a nice big print from my wedding? It’s only been… 5 years?

  14. OMG I would seriously love this.

  15. I would love this!

  16. This would be an awesome prize to win!

  17. love it!

  18. I already have a picture in mind…

  19. I have the greatest picture that my MIL took of my son when he was playing football. At the age of 7, he barely reached the other boys shoulders. She took a pic from behind the boys watching the game with my guy in the center, standing lower and smaller than the rest. I have always wanted to get that on canvas.

  20. Very cool!

  21. I have always wanted one of these… I know exactly which picture I would do.

  22. thanks for the chance!

  23. Love these!

  24. Wow, what a great gift! Hope I win.

  26. I recently gave my parents a canvas picture of our family at their 40th anniversary/vow renewal party and they LOVED it. I’ve been kicking myself for not getting one made for me! 🙂

  32. I can see it now…grandkids on canvas…

  33. Pic me! ;o)

  34. Fun!

  35. I need some more Christmas present ideas, and this is a good one. I gave my grandparents a gallery canvas of their wedding photo a few years ago, and now it is back with me (my grandmother passed away in December), but I can always do other photographs for others in my life. Thanks for the opportunity and the idea again!

  36. Thank you!
