Canvas People Free Photo Canvas

Canvas People - Free Photo Canvas

This is one of my favorite offers! Canvas People is offering a free 8 x 10 photo to canvas or $50 off your order. Turn your engagement photo or a wedding photo into a canvas! If you want two then the second and shipping is 50% off. Here are the prices you can get with this deal:

  • 8 x 10 photo canvas is free with this deal
  • 11 x 11 photo canvas is $13.99
  • 11 x 14 photo canvas is $14.99
  • 16 x 16 photo canvas is $28.99
  • 16 x 20 photo canvas is $38.99
  • 18 x 24 photo canvas is $48.99
  • 24 x 36 photo canvas is $84.99

If you want to get creative then Canvas People offers different effects you can use and you can also purchase a frame for you canvas if you want (although one of the wonderful things about photo canvases is that you can use them without a frame and they still look great).

You will have to pay shipping, which is $14.99 (an amazing deal for an 8 x 10 personalized canvas shipped to your house!). You can do this deal as many times as you want. There are some wonderful examples on their homepage. Click on “Community Showcase” to see them all. Some people use the canvas to create art using the effects on the Canvas People site or by taking a scenic picture. There is also an example of a wedding photo (although I think an engagement photo would also be a great use of this deal and hopefully they will add that to the showcase page soon).

I like the vacation idea as well! A scenery picture from your honeymoon would make a unique and personal piece of art for your home.

Are you going to use your free photo canvas deal for your engagement photo, wedding photo, honeymoon photo, something entirely different? Are you planning on doing more than one free canvas?

Lens and mounting of a large-format camera.

Wedding Photography

Using disposable cameras at your budget wedding is one of the tips that is often mentioned to save money. You can buy budget cameras, put them on the table, and your guests can bless you with photos of your reception. But, is this really a good way to save money on your wedding?

The cameras themselves are not expensive. You can purchase them in a lot (a large group) for as low as $2.99 per camera. You can purchase cameras that match the theme of your wedding reception.

You will have to develop each camera. That is not very expensive either. You can always use a mail order service or go to a drugstore or Costco for your developing. Generally the drugstore option will be the most expensive. I have found photo developing for as low as $2.69 a roll.

That comes out to $5.68 per 27 exposure camera ($0.21 a print). Not bad, but it still might not be a great option.

We are used to digital cameras now. Digital cameras allow you to take the best picture and pick and choose what you print. The quality of pictures that you will get on the reception table cameras will probably be low.

Is there going to be drinking at your reception? Get ready for some interesting pictures (depending on your sense of humor this may or may not be a good thing). Are there going to be children at the reception? Chances are at least a couple will be snapping some of those pictures.

Many people carry digital cameras now, especially to a wedding. Ask them for copies of the pictures they snap at your reception.

If you really want film cameras on the table at your wedding reception then consider purchasing professional grade film. At least the quality of the picture will be better.
