Creating art on canvas has a history dating as far back as the 1400s, though it did not become increasingly popular until the 16th century. Back then, canvases replaced paintings on wood panels, as they were more durable and lightweight, making them easier to sell and transport. In 1826, photography was invented, and then around the 1840s, the first photograph was printed on canvas. Although photo canvas prints were not common back then, they have reached peak popularity recently, and it is easy to see why. As mentioned before, the canvas is lightweight, durable, easy to transport, and has the potential to be a striking art piece in anyone’s home. As your life continues, you will find many different reasons to celebrate and purchase your personalized photos on canvas for a lifetime memory. Keep reading for a list of photo canvas décor ideas for you and your loved ones:   

Family Reunions

If your family is anything like mine, most of them live out of state, sprinkled across the United States. So, when the family does get together to celebrate an event, whether it be for a wedding, family reunion, funeral, etc.- we make a point to get an updated photo of everyone as a group. This photo often gets printed on the family calendar and goes on many of our walls, where we can look back on it fondly. Printing a family photo on canvas would preserve the memory of holding your family members near and dear to your heart. 


For the newly engaged or married couple in your life, there is nothing sweeter than a photo of the happy couple gracing their new home together. Gifting a photo of the couple in love allows them to freeze that moment in time and hang it as a constant reminder and celebration of their lifelong commitment to each other.  

New Baby

Nothing says congratulations like a thoughtful gift! Customize your framed picture with a baby blue or pastel pink border or the new addition’s name for an added flair. Parents want nothing more than to keep their little ones little for as long as they can, and now you can provide a visual reminder of how cute their little one was, to be cherished for a lifetime.
