Giveaway: uprinting canvas

I’ve seen this giveaway on a few other blogs and have been intrigued by UPrinting and the beautiful canvas print offer. So when UPrinting asked me to host a giveaway I was pretty excited.

Even though it’s officially still summer, the holidays will be here before we know it and a canvas print of a treasured photo would make an amazing gift. What grandparent wouldn’t love a 16x20 canvas of their grandchildren?

I'm thinking about one of these photos for my canvas...

Winning the championship game

Learning to surf

  1. Hi, I love the surfboard image, the color is amazing. Please enter me

  2. Hi Carolyn,
    I agree with Tam, the surfing photo is something that will bring enjoyment to your family and beachy thoughts for others. The water looks warm, blue and inviting.
    In a rare moment, I captured my new all time favorite picture of my son and daughter together on a picnic table this summer. Absolutely canvas worthy.
    Thank you for the opportunity.
    Until next time

  3. I love the pretty garden shot as a gift for my grandmother. She would love it. Personally, I'm dying to turn some of my favorite shots from my first trip to Europe into artwork for my blank apartment.

  4. I would love to get one of my wedding photos on canvas for our bedroom!

  5. We bought an old farm property last year, and the sellers gave us an aerial photo of the house and barn taken in the late sixties. I would love to have a current photo taken from the same viewpoint. Thanks for introducing me to Uprinting!

  6. My fave pic - #2 son at the beach for the first time ever. It was taken from a distance so has lots of beach and ocean and little guy running top speed toward the water. Love it!

  7. I just got a nice camera so I have a lot of choices. I took some great shots of my mom's garden close up. Maybe the fushia one is worthy? Thanks for the chance to win.

  8. I would love to get a shot from our honeymoon in Crete as a canvas print. Crete has beautiful arid landscapes and rocky shorelines that made stunning photos. I would hang it in our living room or master bedroom. I really like the idea of having a piece of personal art to hang in our home.

  9. My Daughter was in my Cousins wedding and I have the perfect picture of her in her Flower Dress! Hope I win!

  10. I have a close up photo of my husband and I looking into each others eyes while slowdancing. We call it essence of love. You can just see the love coming through in the photo and it would be beautiful put on canvas. Smiles!

  11. Please enter me to win the canvas art give away. I would use a photo of my daughter Marcella who will be born in September. She is the miracle baby because it took me over 130 days of hospitalization to bring her into the world safely.


  12. I just gave birth to my 2nd baby (a 2nd girl) and would love a big picture of the girls just loving on each other from her newborn photo shoot. The hard part....deciding which beautiful shot I would want!


  13. i would get a pic of our fam and give it to my mom!!!

  14. I just took family pictures and I have been trying to decide which one to get as a canvas....this would be a great way to get more than one of my kids!

  15. We have canvas prints of myself and my husband with our two older boys, but we don't have one of our baby yet. He needs a canvas too! :)


  16. A picture of my son would be great for his new room :)

  17. I would do a black and white photo of my three boys!

  23. I have a photo that my daughter took as a surprise, just as my spouse was proposing to me. She is whispering in my ear "Will you marry me?" just as my daughter snapped the photo. We used the photo on our wedding programs.
