Remembering The Memories with Photo Wall

If you're anything like me, opening a gift from a loved one that is a little more personal means such much more. It shows that they have put a lot of thought and love into a gift for you. Every Christmas I like to get my husband something special from our daughter. This year we have had a particular tough year so we want to make him feel appreciated and loved so much more that he already is and so we have decided to get a him a canvas.

Who are Photowall?

Photo Wall are a Swedish brand that specialise in canvases, wall murals and photo wallpapers. They have a particular passion for design and quality with thousands of their own designs or you can upload and design your own. All the wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly, fire resistant and do not fade in sunlight. Seeing as we were keen on designing our own canvas we used a photo from my birthday weekend, where my husband told me that it was the happiest he’s been in while.

Ordering Online

The website is professional with an appealing look throughout. Its clear and easy to navigate around to make my order. You simply select your design or upload the image you want, choose your size and pretty much check out! It’s that simple. You can order a canvas print from your image with or without a frame. Even if you choose the frame option, it will be sent to you unassembled to avoid damage in transit, but everything you need to assemble your canvas print is included in the packaging. The included assembly instructions will show you how to easily assemble the canvas print step by step.

With a DIY canvas all you need to do is upload the photo, choose what size canvas you want and decide how you want the edge of the print to look. Once your order is placed, Photowall will print your canvas immediately and ship it within 1–4 days. For my canvas I ordered a 40 x 40 square print with a white edging. You can choose a black or white edge, or allow the motif to wrap all the way onto the edge of the canvas.

If you are unsure about the resolution of the image, then we can help you check it before placing your order. Upload your image, scroll down and click 'Edit image' for free assistance. You can upload images up to 1 GB in size. At first it was a little tricky for me to uploaded the photos that I wanted, but as soon as I uploaded my image in the original format it would allow me to go to the next step.

All prints with Photowall are tailor-made to your specific measurements. The frame is available in sizes ranging from 16 to 59 inches at 4 inch intervals. If you only want to order the canvas, you can order in sizes from 8 inches up to 59 inches on one side and 236 and 1/4 inches on the other side.

Need to Change Your Image?

Sometimes you may spot something that doesn’t really fit with the rest of the image, the colour didn't turn out quite the way you had in mind. This is where Photowall's expert photo editors will come to your rescue. They can change colours, add or remove objects, and even change the dimensions of the image to a certain extent. When you order, you can get a free, no obligation quote.

Photowall only use the highest quality materials and printing for their canvas prints. They carefully pack the canvas print created from your image with packing paper and then place it in a durable cardboard box made of recycled materials.

Our Canvas

It was so easy to order the canvas, delivery was fast and all orders are provided with tracking information with regular email updates. Upon arrival the box contains your prints rolled in tissue paper. With the canvas print with frame option, there is also frame moulding, mounting hanger and assembly instructions included in the package.

The frame makes it easy to assemble your print and there is no need any tools. You simply join together the frame moulding pieces along the edge of the canvas print. Then place the metal angle brackets in the corners and then tighten. Then all you have to do is mount the canvas on a wall with the mounting hanger included or place your brand new canvas on a shelf, or sideboard. It felt secure and solid and only took 5 minutes.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality and it was so super easy to out together. The only worry that I did have with my canvas was the clarity of the image, but it was clear and the colours are beautiful. My only regret was that I decided to go for a white edge rather that the wrap around option, even though this may be the case the canvas was brilliant, great quality and a perfect finish.

Final Thoughts
Photowall has outstanding customer service with all the courteous email updates. The website itself looks great and is so simple and easy to use, you can pretty much design your own canvas in less than five minutes. I also love the fact that delivery is super quick, even though the company is based in Sweden. The canvas was brilliant, great quality and a perfect finish and I know that it will look good on our living room wall. Using the DIY self assemble canvas frame was simple and easy to put together, anyone will be able to pop it together in less than no time, probably less time than making a cup of tea. All in all, I cannot recommend Photo Wall enough and I know that I will use them again for any future gifts that have a certain meaning to them.
