I discovered www.mywoodencanvas.com about 5 years back, and I’ve been ever loyal to them since. Almost all our milestones from our engagement photos to our wedding photos and now our family portraits are all printed on wood and hang proudly on our walls. What I love about having them printed on wood, aside from the fact that it looks much more artsy-fartsy than your usual picture frame collage, they actually age gracefully too. The wood grain adds depth to the portraits and the color changes so beautifully over time. And since it’s lead free, UV resistant, and water resistant, you know it’ll last you for years.
Every time I order to give them as wedding gifts, they’re always a big hit to the couples we give them to. It makes for a nice gift for newlyweds to add warmth to their brand new homes. For this Christmas, I’ve asked for their help once again in creating custom pieces for family and friends. (If you are family and/or friend—you know what I’m getting you! Sorry for spoiling the surprise! HAHAHA!).
I thought I’d share it here on the blog since it’s a really great idea and if you order ASAP (I mean NOW) you may still be able to get them in time for Noche Buena! The actual printing time takes about 7-10 days and if you add shipping 1-2 days, you’ll probably get your prints in less than 2 weeks. They also accommodate International shipping so you can send them to your loved ones abroad too 🙂 Just the perfect gift to make them remember you back home.
They’ve added more items on their inventory like coasters, wooden boxes (for that person who loves to keep little mementos), wooden trays (for that friend who loves to entertain), they even have wooden clocks and pen holders too (great gifts for officemates!). Of course, I still love their custom portraits–these still are sure winners in the gift department but these functional additions are just as cool! And big bonus, they can have it gift wrapped for you too! And don’t worry, They put a small print of the photo on the back so you can tell which is which. So visit www.mywoodencanvas.com and order these personal and thoughtful gifts for Christmas!
