I’ve already confessed that I’m a lover of photography and all things photo related. I also mentioned that I hadn’t put up many pictures since our big overseas move despite taking THOUSANDS of photos.
We were cooped inside most of last winter. Things like that happen when you have a newborn. Once the little guy started sleeping through the night, we started planning several short getaways in our host nation.
I was crazy excited when HP contacted me about reviewing some products for their #HPSummerPhotoFun program. There are a bunch of different products to choose from including traditional canvases, mounted photos, photo books, and posters. What had me the most intrigued were the faux canvases. They are ridiculously affordable.
I purchased eight 16×20 faux canvases using images from our summer adventures for our narrow hallway. Our upstairs hallway was seriously lacking in the personality department. **It also lacks in natural light, so please excuse the glare caused by the lights in the photos.**
The faux canvases are made from an extra light, but durable cardboard frame. The photo is printed on a very thin, vinyl like material. I’m also going to be 100% honest. I usually get items printed from a lab I use for my business, so I was HIGHLY skeptical about how the colors would print. My monitor colors are calibrated, so I know that the colors I see on MY monitor will be how the colors show when printed on quality paper using quality inks. Guess what? The colors printed on the faux canvases are almost exactly what my monitor shows. AMAZING!
Calibrate your monitor!
I also got a couple faux canvases done in black and white (for testing purposes). One without a bunch of contrast added and one with. I prefer how the way the moodier black and white edit printed on the bottom canvas. I can’t wait to add smaller pictures and mementos to this collection from our Korean travels.
