Photowall Canvas Review

Bournemouth Pier - photo by Terry Conway

My good friend Terry is a very talented photographer. When he showed me his work last year I was amazed and since then I have always wanted one of his pictures on my wall.  So when Photowall approached me and asked me if I would like to review a canvas print I jumped at the chance. 

Photowall is a Swedish company that sells wall murals and canvas prints. They have a huge range of lovely designs you can choose from on their site or you can upload your own photographs. I was offered either a wall mural or a canvas print to review so I decided to go for the canvas print. Though I have to say if I was ever thinking of making a feature wall in  my home I would definitely have a look through their wall mural designs. 

Terry has quite a selection of photographs to choose from but the one that stood out for me was the above picture of Bournemouth pier. I love the colours and that looking at it makes me feel so relaxed. I knew it was the one I wanted on my wall. 

Ordering on the Photowall website is a very easy process. All I had to do was upload the photograph and select the size I wanted. I chose 90 x 60cm which is a fairly big canvas but perfect for what I wanted. When you change the measurements on the site and it will show a box on your photograph of the area that will get printed. Photowall also offer a photo editing service (at an extra cost) if you want any changes to your pictures. You also get to choose whether you want a wrap around canvas or a border around the edge of the wood. In this case I chose a black border. The canvas comes with a do-it-yourself frame which you put together at home. I put my order in on a Sunday night and was really impressed that my canvas arrived at my home four days later. 

The canvas was well packaged in a box along with the do-it-yourself frame with instructions on how to assemble. Here is what I received in the box.

Now I have to be honest here I was quite apprehensive about the idea of the do-it-yourself frame. Mostly because I am the most cack handed person around. I'm the person who took five weeks to make a groove on a box to stick a hinge for a lid when at school and even then the lid was hanging off. So I was worried about putting it together and did ask Terry to come around to help but he couldn't so I decided to give it a go myself. 

Firstly you roll out your canvas picture on a flat clean surface. Each piece of wood has sticky tape on which you line up with the edge of your canvas and stick down. On one edge I had issues with this but I could easily remove the wood and them re-stick it down. So if you do make mistakes it's not the end of the world. Then you fold the wood in to form the frame: 

Once it's all lined up you take the metal corner bars and screw them in to the holes in the frame:

After screwing in all four corners you are ready to go. They also provide a picture hook too for hanging on the wall. I was very impressed with how easy it was to put together and how it fitted together perfectly. If I can put it together anyone can! 

Overall I am very impressed with my canvas from Photowall. The ordering process was easy, the canvas was delivered quickly, was easy to put together and most importantly is excellent quality. It looks fantastic on my wall. I would definitely consider using Photowall again and recommend to my friends.
