Run to Easy Canvas Prints (your heart will follow)!

Once again, I was contacted by the lovely Megan at BuildASign to try out a custom canvas print on their recently launched website Easy Canvas Prints. I was so impressed with my Stickers to Run By (there’s still time to get yours today!) that I jumped at the chance to create a canvas print.

Easy Canvas Prints offers high quality, gallery-ready prints at an affordable price. My head was spinning with ideas – Easy Canvas Prints also offers an extensive idea gallery – a wedding picture, a beach picture from our Honeymoon to St. John, a picture of the pups or a nice family photo. The possibilities are endless. I knew I wanted to keep my canvas running related, but I didn’t have a race photo worthy enough to be blown-up and cast onto fine-art canvas. After all, I would be all sweaty.

I decided to make an Expressions canvas and I must say, Megan helped me a lot with the design. The customer service at BuildASign is unmatched, in my opinion. I knew what I wanted it to say and look like, but needed a little help putting it all together (enter: Megan, she’s good at that). I was hesitant about how words and computer graphics would look on a canvas material (I almost considered going back to a photo), but I am completely amazed at how it turned out. I love it!

 

It looks so professional and looks like it was actually painted on the canvas. My favorite part of the canvas is the red edging:

 

The colors are vibrant and eye-catching. It literally looks like something I would purchase from an art store. I have never owned any type of artwork with words or sayings on it, but I can tell you now, I am hooked thanks to Easy Canvas Prints. My canvas even became the focal point of my (redesigned) office:

 

 

The canvas is high quality and once again, came pristinely packaged in less than a week after I placed my order. The canvas material Easy Canvas Prints uses is archival quality and has a specifically designed coating for superior color gamut and resolution. Canvases are only intended for indoor use, but even in display of direct window light should still last for decades to come if cared for properly, per their website. If using a photo of your own, Easy Canvas Prints also offers a variety of enhancements including Black and White or Sepia Conversion, Retouching, and Photo Collages. Take a look – these would make awesome, personal, and affordable gifts, especially for something like an anniversary or special occasion!

I love being in my office now and when I look up from my computer screen, I am reminded of my motivation – running is what I enjoy the most:

As you can see, I also added my own motivational/goal board:

It has some special things on it: a picture of me, my mom, and Bart Yasso; my stickers; favorite blog stickers, pictures of me running my first half marathon, and my future business card, among other things. I love it!

I also added a second board for upcoming races, training schedules, coaching questions, and things I need to remember:

No more tape on the walls for me! 😉

I hope you all are having a great week – Running and non!

Until the next mile marker,

  7. I just had to stop and comment. The folks at Easy Canvas Prints emailed me to discuss doing a giveaway on my blog. They included a link to your post so that I could get an idea about what they have to offer.

    You now have a new follower. I can so relate. I started getting in shape and losing weight in November 2009. I started running in March of this year. I never, ever thought I would enjoy running, but it is now my new passion. I need to run like I need to breathe. Can’t wait to read some of your other posts.

  13. After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
    Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!
