Review & Giveaway: Truprint Canvas

We were given the products free for the purpose of this review. All words and opinions are my own.

We were really excited to work with Truprint, the online digital photo printing service and personalised photo gifts and prints. As a family we love taking photos. The problem living in the age of technology is that many photos get left on Facebook, on USB sticks, on disks, on desktop folders... I know this - I am the worst culprit for this. It is sad that we really don't print off as much as we used to HAVE to. Which is why Truprint is great for getting them done!


We were given the following items to provide a full and honest review:

8x10 framed canvas (white frame)
12x12 collage canvas
20x24 single image canvas
We also qualified for 40 free prints, as it was our first upload. I think this would be great with your first order - we printed off all of the photos that we had been meaning to for ages - Halloween pictures, Christmas, Rosie as a new baby.

8" x 10" Framed Canvas
We picked photos of the girls to go on the canvas. We really love the idea of having canvases to keep of them while they are growing up. Time flies and it's great to keep these memories on the wall. 


The canvas itself is made of a white wooden frame, and the print sits snugly within this. The frame is well made and has a distinct 'wooden' look to it, which I really like. It is well made and sturdy. The canvas came with the fittings, and I am told (by Warren) that they were easy to hang. The quality of the photos - well, you can see for yourself, it looks great. I have tried to take a photo of the actual canvas itself, not so much my pictures, so that you can see for yourself how the canvas looks. 

12" x 12" Collage Canvas

I really enjoyed making this! You import all your photos online, it's really easy and you can even connect through Facebook. If you are anything like me, then you probably store your best pictures on there! So it was really easy for me to connect through there and import the photographs. I played with this for ages - jigging the photos about, adding more, taking away. It was really good to get creative. In the end I settled on what I had picked, and I love it. Again, the canvas is great quality - the photos are clear and look great.

20 x 24 Single Image Canvas


This one is my favourite. The image 'wraps' itself around the canvas and looks amazing. The printing is great quality, and again, well made.


I honestly can't really think of any negative points. The prices start from £24.99, so they are really great value as well. If you are looking for canvases then this might be the place for you to look. There are a variety of frame and canvas options - you can even buy posters and other items. It's a really great website. I loved how easy it was. The only problem I had was deciding which photographs to use.

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning one of the 20" x 24" single image canvases, please fill in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck - you will love this prize!
