By arrangement with Canvas Factory
Back before we had finished painting the house I received an email from The Canvas Factory asking if I’d be interested in reviewing their products on the blog. After a bit of back and forward we reached an agreement and my photos from the photoshoot last year were winging their way to me on canvas for my very own Canvas Factory review!
When they arrived I tagged our photographer Bambi in a photo and she was excited to see them printed. Photos are for printing, she said, and I couldn’t agree more. These photos are beautiful, I love them, I’ve shared them online and on social media, but they really came alive after they were printed. Now they exist. I highly recommend you print more of your photos too. Which also happens to be a really nice tie into the fact that The Canvas Factory review was the reason behind this post. Win.
I’ve printed online and via kiosks before, with varying results. Some majorly varying results. So bad has been my experience that I was worried that too much post production will be done and ruin the quality of the images. That had happened to me before. I was worried that the images would be blurred. Also happened. Or that the colours would be off. Happened, we were almost green.
Then they arrived and I was really, really, really happy. I mean look at the photos, the canvases from The Canvas Factory are amazing. I feel like they are a little more saturated than the original images, but I like the impact of the bright blues against my creamy coloured walls.
The process to get me to delivery was smooth too. I ordered above the agreed amount on my gift certificate and had my pop portrait by Marie O’Neill printed too. I’m glad I did. It’s the best. So fun and vibrant and cool. I’ll share some pics when my office is set up. I guess I just wanted to let you know we are settling in. There are things on the walls. The house is coming together. It’s funny how a few family photos on the wall will do that, right?

Hello, I am looking for help. My order from Canvas Factory is horrible, I have tried the live chat, but they only give lip service. I have spent Hundreds of dollars with this company and want a refund. They are not a reputable company! They have no phone number, the quality of the products are horrible ! It looks like newspaper glued to plastic!!!
Hi Marie, this is the second time now, as you see below, that someone has been unhappy with the outcome from their order. I’m sorry to hear that! I love my canvases and they are weathering well after 12 months of hanging in a brightly lit entrance way. I wouldn’t have said so otherwise. But in saying that, let me see if I can reach the contact I was given throughout the process to facilitate some sort of outcome. Feel free to email me at email@example.com to discuss further. x
Lucky you had a good experience with canvas factory…ours was horrible! Delivered a faulty item with a promise to deliver replacement ….only failed to deliver the promise….till date waiting for a replacement item….only receiving old automated responses from them….
This is SUCH horrible news, let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I’m not sure my contact is still accessible but I could try? Let me know.
Great shots Mel and I love the way you’ve hung them. Out of interest, did you decide against the one with the graffiti’ed appendage background? 🙂
Thanks Amanda! Haha. It was a tough decision but I thought, that one needs a canvas all of its own. 😉
These look amazing! I’ve been thinking of getting some prints made up through one of these companies, either for my house or as a Birthday present for my Dad. I’ve got some gorgeous photos of my son from a photoshoot, they’d be great if they came out something like your did! I’m considering using your discount link, hope I can make the time 🙂

Thank you Di. I’m REALLY happy with how they turned out and the whole process is more affordable than I thought it was. I was back on there today making plans for Christmas in advance this year!
On a totally unrelated note, how do you wash your 17 Sundays jackets? Hand wash? Dry cleaning? My original jacket ended up trashed by my dry cleaner with heaps of studs missing and busted (17 Sundays swapped me a mint condition one when I emailed them to ask if they had replacement studs – LOVE this brand) and now I’m scared to wash it again, wasn’t sure if I should try myself or find a new dry cleaner.
PS I do love the pics x
Thanks lady. I love these pics toooooo.
And the jacket, I hand wash mine in warm water then dry flat. And to be honest, I think I’ve washed it twice, I just air it out a lot and it wears beautifully like good denim does. I only really wash when the makeup on the collar gets a bit much. (oh god, I sounds SO gross. Haha).
Haha you don’t sound gross makeup on the collar is basically why I’m asking 🙂
Oh phew. Haha. Warm hand wash, cold is better if the makeup with move, and absolutely not hot or you’ll have a mini jacket on your hands. Good luck!
