Personalized Eco-Friendly Canvas Print (Review and Giveaway)

by Guest Contributor

As a busy mom of 4 growing and usually running boys, I am often chasing them with a camera trying to get pictures on my wall to remember my boys in each stage as they grow up. I have one wall in my bedroom that is devoted to family pictures, starting with my engagement photo from over 10 years ago! My most recent picture on the wall is one from Eco-Friendly Canvas.

Eco-Friendly-Canvas

Eco-Friendly Canvas took my digital photo of my 4 boys dressed for church in their suits and turned it into a beautiful 8×10 product on 3/4” bamboo. Although we had some initial issues with the file I sent them (which was a problem on my part – photos need to be sent in their original format, and not the commonly resized format for the web), everything got worked out and I am very pleased with my final product.

It is beautiful! The bamboo is gorgeous and I wish I had sent them a more professional picture than one I had taken on the driveway!

bamboo print from Eco-Friendly Canvas

I had previously never heard of printing photos on canvas bamboo, or bamboo photo mounting, but they are very proud of being a company providing an eco-friendly canvas product. According to their own website, www.ecofriendlycanvas.com, products can be made from bamboo or maple and they have a great keyhole slot on the back for easy hanging. They then take your digital photos and print them on Fuji and Kodak silver-halide paper and use a transparent PH neutral adhesive to protect the image from the natural acids in the wood and provided an extremely reliable bond between the images and the wooden panel. Their products can be as small as 8×10 or as large as 30×45.

If you are interested in finding out more about Eco-Friendly Canvas, you can contact them via e-mail at customerservice@ecofriendlycanvas.com or call them at 877-845-8518. You can like Eco-Friendly Canvas on Facebook and follow Eco-Friendly Canvas on Twitter and Pinterest and receive more perks, promotions, rewards and special offers. And as a special promotion for 5 Minutes for Mom readers, use the code 5mfm2012 for 15% off your order.
