Though sellotaping your photographs to a tennisball might greatly increase their artisticvalue and utility, their quality starts to drop rapidly after the first few rounds of fetch with the neighbourhood poodle. Get the versatility and artistic merit without risking toothmarks and save 50% on a canvas print from Photo Maestro. Though many people love to print out their photos so that everyone who visits can see them without having to peer over shoulders at a laptop screen, these postcard sized bits of sturdy paper are often stuck in shoeboxes or cellophane photoalbums which are famously terrible at ruining photographs. Even if they’re pinned under last month’s grocery list on the fridge, they’re not ideally displayed – which is usually the point of printing them out. Like the imitation Mona Lisa, complete with inkedon moustache you sometimes see in college dorms, a canvas print has all the pizazz of a painted portrait and that personal touch that just makes it so much better than stuffy Renaissance art. Whether it’s a snapshot of your nephew’s first birthday or an abstract fineart shot of your nephews first teeth, printed with only the best inks on a thick, damage resistant canvas not only will it look better, but it’ll last practically forever. Protected with museumgrade sealant, the bright colours of your nephew’s babygrow are guaranteed not to fade to pastel. Not even the harsh UV of day or the dirt of a thousand sticky fingers will be able to damage your new piece of art and even if someone does lay sticky fingers on it, all it takes is a wipedown with a damp cloth to get it clean again. With only a few notsoexpert clicks of a button, a canvas print could be winging its way to your house and onto the feature wall you’ve been trying to create. The only difficult part of the process will be picking which photograph deserves to be immortalized on canvas. Whether you chose an A4 for the mantelpiece or an A1 so that even your neighbours will be able to see it from their living room, it’ll look better than any Michelangelo in its snazzy hardwood frame. Sit back, send them an email with your super awesome photograph attached and just tap your foot impatiently until your new artwork arrives. Stilllife Fact A triptych of 17 different plates of pasta created by Lisa Gretchen Janiies recently won an award for being the worst collection of photographs to ever be printed on canvas. It has been made a part of the permanent collection at the British Museum of Suck.
