Father's Day - Canvas4Life Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Father's Day is only a week away. While time is running out to get a great gift, hope is not lost yet. There are still many great things you can get in a hurry.

In fact, one of the most special gifts you could possible give is something personal. A moment in time captured forever and turned into a beautiful piece of artwork. Normally, a week would not be long enough to create and ship such a personalized treasure, but with Canvas4Life, it's more than enough time.

Surprised? I have to admit, I was too. I got my dear husband an incredible photo canvas from Canvas4Life and I was shocked at how quickly it arrived. I have ordered canvases from other companies before, and while the product has been impressive, the production time left me wishing for more.

I expected the same such experience this time, and was not fretting the wait, but when I order the canvas on a Sunday night and received it on Tuesday(with FREE standard shipping), I was blown away.

As if that was not enough to make me completely fall in love with Canvas4Life, the product was spectacular. The quality is outstanding, especially since the prices are incredible reasonable. And the process is so simply a child could do it.

You simply upload a photo, then select your size. Most other companies have you choose the size first. While that may seem like a small detail, it is important because Canvas4Life only allows you to select a size based upon the resolution of your photo, unlike others allow you to choose others and then simply give you a warning. Preventing you from choosing a size to large for your photo ensures that the picture will be crisp and flawless.

After selecting your size, you select your depth, your bleed(wrap style; mirror, wrap the edges, gallery style, etc) and frame option(or no frame design). You can also add advanced options like text(for no added charge, some companies charge extra for text). Then simply choose your shipping speed, pay and wait to be amazed with your new piece of art.

In addition to the physical beauty of the canvas, a gift from Canvas4Life is so much more than a piece of canvas to hang on the wall, it is emotion brought to life. A canvas gift is one of very few ways to actually give someone the gift of emotion. Whether it be love, friendship, family , nostalgia, or any other feeling one can imagine, you can literally give someone the gift of memories. I find that pretty incredible.

The photo I chose for my husband is of him with his parents and brother and our son. That in itself makes for a great photo, 3 generations of Smith men all together, but this photo is even more special than that. This was the first time our son(or I) had met my husband's family and the first time my husband had seen them in over 10 years, so it was a monumental occasion.

We have seen them a couple of times since then, but this was basically the defining moment on our new relationship. Having this wonderful photo brought to like thanks to Canvas4Life will mean so much more to my husband than any other gift could. It is, after all, the thought that counts, and nothing could be more heartfelt than this moment was.

If you are looking for the perfect way to show Dad just how much he means to you this Father's Day, there could be no better way than with a special photo turned into work of art from Canvas4Life.

As my gift to all of you, Canvas4Life and I are giving you all the chance to win a 16x20 canvas of your own. While this giveaway will not end before Father's Day, a canvas makes a great gift for any occasion or a just because treat for yourself. Enter below for your chance to win this amazing prize. Good luck!
