I love photos on canvas and have been wanting one for somewhere in our house for awhile. Sadly, they seem to cost more than I'm willing or able to spend and anytime a Groupon for one pops up, I just can't justify the cost.
But it turns out there's now a more affordable option closer to home. Meijer nows offers Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints at their photo center. And the best part? They are available next day!
Seriously, you go to Meijer, upload your picture on their easy to use kiosk or from the comfort of your own home, select the size you want, approve your image, and order. The next day, you pick it up! No waiting for it to ship from a state clear across the country.
And they're pretty affordable. They start at $39.99, but Meijer often runs sales and specials, so you could easily get it for less. In fact, right now, there is an mPerks coupon for 50% off one canvas and it's good until January 9.
Because I'm a BzzAgent, I got an 11x14 canvas for free. The hardest part was deciding what photo I wanted to use. Our dining room is sorely lacking in decor, so I decided to print something for that room.
We're trying for a vintage safari theme in there, so I decided to print one of my many giraffe pictures. I went with one I took on our honeymoon at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.
I took my memory stick to Meijer during my weekly grocery shopping trip and used the kiosk to order it. 24 hours later, I had this...
I showed if off to my mom and my husband and they were both impressed. It looks very professional and it's hard to believe that's a picture I took with my point and shoot from our hotel room balcony.
Here you can see how the canvas is wrapped. And it came all ready to hang. One nail in the wall and it was done!
I love it! And I'm keeping Meijer in mind next time I want a canvas for our house or a gift.
As a BzzAgent, I received a free 11x14 canvas, but all opinions are my own.
