In September our oldest was in a terrible car accident. At just 17 years old she saw her life flash before her eyes; it was pretty traumatic for our entire family. My husband purchased a car when she was just three years old and she dreamed that it would be her’s one day. He babied that thing and took amazing care of it so that when she turned 16 he could give it to her in perfect condition. She loved it; it was her most prized possession on Earth. Sometimes when we hang onto something so tightly the Lord will remove it from our lives so it doesn’t become an idol.
The car was destroyed. Everyone who saw it could not believe she walked away alive. She was down for a couple of months with a pelvis that was broken in 3 places…and her car was gone. This crushed both her and my husband. When Canvas Factory contacted us about doing a giveaway for our readers I asked my husband what picture he wanted me to get printed on a canvas. It was no surprise that he selected one of her senior pictures that had her and the car.Note: I was financially compensated for this post/giveaway. Any opinions are completely my own based on my experience. Read our full disclosure here.
I ordered my canvas print very easily and it estimated that it would ship in 4 days, but I received shipping confirmation in just a day or so. I received it pretty quickly, but I imagine with the holidays coming up, you would want to allow a little extra time for shipping.
I thought the price was great, considering that the normal price for a 20×16 canvas print was originally $129 and it is currently on sale for $45.15. I am very pleased with the quality and my daughter teared up when she saw it (you know, the car). My husband hung it up in a prominent place so they could reflect on what this car meant to them both.
Here is our canvas print:
The color on the canvas is vibrant and looks flawless; just like it did when our photographer printed the photo for us with her senior picture package. Of course, it looks like a canvas and not a photograph though. Here is a close-up:
In addition to canvas prints in various sizes, Canvas Factory also has wall art, metal prints (that sounds super cool!), and professional gallery-inspired wall art with high gloss acrylic glass prints. They also have options for canvas collage prints and split canvas prints.
As you can imagine, such items would make wonderful gifts for friends and family this Christmas season!
