Step-by-Step The trick is to choose the right image for your canvas and the right canvas for your image.

Space and Place:Take a look at your best photos and make a short-list of the ones you’d like to have printed on canvas. Decide where you will be hanging the finished artwork.

Digitise Your Old Family Photos and Create a Beautiful Coffee Table Photobook

Ever heard people say that if their house was on fire and they could save only one possession, they would grab their photo albums? A family’s photo albums hold their combined memories of all their best times. As such, they should be looked after.

Old fashioned albums lose their stickiness and colour over time. The photos themselves start to dull and fade. With all the handling of people browsing them, they start to fall apart and look shabby. This is why coffee table photobooks are the answer.

Showing your family memories in a professionally bound photobook on your coffee table or bookshelf will take the pics from drab to fab. What’s great is that you can create separate volumes for each chapter of your lives: ‘Mauritius Holiday 2017’ or ‘The Kids as Babies’, etc. Each book can have its own look and feel to go with the theme or event it contains.

It Is So Easy

The Perfect Wedding Gift? A Personalised Photobook!

Will you be attending a wedding this summer? Unsure of what gift to buy? Kitchenware can be so boring and other homeware gets used and thrown away over time. Have you considered buying a gift that will last a lifetime? How about a personalised photo book?

According to an article in Forbes magazine (Millennials Shaking Up the Wedding Industry; August 15, 2018), “Millennial couples are getting married later in life and many also have previously lived together, and their wedding registries are reflecting just that… Many couples already have traditional registry gifts like cookware and linens.”

Wedding photos are probably the most prized and valued photos you will have in your life. The wedding album – like the marriage – is meant to last a lifetime; it will be shown to countless visitors over the years. Over time, and with frequent handling, photo albums tend to deteriorate and lose their appeal.

This is why, for a momentous event such as a wedding, photo books are preferable. A photo b…

Celebrate Your Wedding Day with a High-Quality Canvas Print of Your Favourite Photos!

Do you have your wedding photos displayed in your home? Most people do for many reasons. First, we want to be reminded of what should have been one of the happiest days of our lives. Secondly, we spent a small fortune on that day, and want to have something to show for it. But, for many of us, we probably looked about as hot as we will ever look on our wedding day and we want to be reminded of that. We want people to walk into our homes and remark on how stunning we once were!

Love Makes the World Go Around
More than that, wedding photos are a constant reminder of the bond of love that was the start of a family or a life together; constant reminders of this love keeps us smiling.

The days of mismatched, tacky frames lining the shelf are gone. We now want that professional, designer look in our homes. We are mindful of the aesthetic of the house too and don’t want our photos to clash with that. A canvas print is ideal because it goes with any decorating style - there is no frame to cl…
