I hate this sort of deal...I had absolutely no interest or need for a 100cmx75cm canvas print, I keep telling myself I don't need one but struggling to stop myself browsing through photos to choose a suitable one.

Oh Thanks Jim

Been looking for something like this. Would anyone know if I wanted to do a montage, would it be possible and anyone know a good software to do this on?

Thanks

I gave you a funny, but I also agree. Already looking at candidates and I don't even have the wall space for it.

Yes definitely possible but not via the basic image editing software on the site - plenty of free online or standalone software tools to help create montages/collages :)

I’ve just had some 75cm x 50cm canvas prints done by photobox, nice prints but a touch oversaturated so I’d recommend decreasing saturation a touch if before send pics into them.

Any such issues from my-picture @shotokan101?

A "qualified" no - in as much as the shot I used was a mono conversion with the eye colour as original - so see above for the original shot....

I’ve been wanting to get a picture of mine blown up & framed, but a canvas at this price is not to be missed. Thanks for posting.

Quick question about fixings for a canvas. I was going to get the hanging kit but maybe a nail in the middle (or one either end) would be just as good with it being lightweight?

Personally I would avoid the nails unless you are plannimg on using a drill or router bit or perhaps a small needle file to VERY CAREFULLY cut some small channels through the "back half" of the top part of the wooden frame as you don't want the nail heads anywhere near the canvas

Might well be able to pick up the mountin kit fairly cheaply online or from a local craft shop?

@shotokan101 Was going to get the 4cm thick frame & the nail sticks out around 1cm from the wall. But if a mounting kit is recommended, I’ll get it with the canvas as it’s currently only £3.

Suggest you make sure you are registered with an account and recheck and contact them if still a problem..... :confused:

I only registered today (went through the options yesterday to see the prices). Even though I registered, I had to put my email in the offer box today and it did bring the price down to £41. Still not the £19 it was yesterday.

They have no phone number and it says it will take several days for a reply. Shame.

Does it still show the £19 price if you click through the link I posted?

I took advantage of the offer. I wasn't looking for a canvas print however the price is very good, especially for the size. Due to the large size I opted for the 4cm thick frame to give it a bit more rigidity and the mirrored option for the edges.

Here is the image I chose, a b&w portrait of a model I shot in 2017. Taken on 6D with the EF 85mm f/1.2L ii. I just hope the print is a good match and not too dark.

Ordered my canvas. £34.50 with delivery, fixings & 4cm frame is a great price. I hope I made the choice in having the edges mirrored instead of stretched.

I’m a little reluctant to post pics on here because I know I’m not very good and this is the section where the experts are. But I like the pic and it’s my favourite city. This is what the front will look like.

Me and Jim are here, you've got nothing to worry about. Sorry, not sorry @shotokan101

I received shipment notification on Monday and it should arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing in as a large print.

I have printed the same image at home A3 on Epson premium glossy photo paper which looks great. Be interesting to see how different the canvas looks by comparison.

Thanks for the link

When I upload my photo the price is not £19 its £54. Looks like the offer is over despite the link still taking you through to the page showing the offer (says its only valid until 23rd Feb).
Its sill half price from the £99 advertised rate !
