I was fortunate to be chosen to receive a Photo Canvas by Oakdene Designs.
The communication was great, and it was all very easy to organise, I just emailed Oakdene my photo, and a week later my canvas was delivered. It arrived in perfect condition, in a padded envelope encased in a sturdy cardboard wrap.
The canvas itself is great, but that does have something to do with the subject (my 2½ year old triplet boys). The background seems a little darker than the original photo, but the other colours are bright and vibrant. The item is well made, the canvas is stretched and stapled around a sturdy wooden frame, with a metal hanger fixed firmly to the back so it was easy to hang on the wall.
You can choose to have the image wrapped around the sides, or for the edges to be black, white or a custom colour. As with many of Oakdene’s products you are also able to personalise the canvas by adding text to the front and a message on the back.
I like the fact that the company sources their materials from British suppliers, therefore supporting other small businesses.
Overall very pleased with the canvas but I feel it is slightly overpriced for the size.
Prices start from £16.50 to £90.50 (depending on size).
Sizes from 8×8″ (20x20cm) to 48×48″ (122x122cm).
Available to buy from Oakdene Designs here.
