It’s a digital age and the most common question I get asked by potential clients is how much a disc of images costs with printing rights. People want to be able to print their photos some place less expensive without a time constraint. I do understand this, I do… which is why I do offer digital packages. However, there are many times that clients tell me that they get their photos and then have absolutely no idea what to do with them. They also have a hard time understanding “wall art” because they are very used to the typical 8X10 and 5X7 sizes. Also, when I mention that we sell canvas’, many people have no idea what to expect from this product or what they would do with it. Here are some examples of why bigger is usually better when it comes time to display your images in your home… and how canvas can look different from a framed print. Another to know about the canvas is that they, usually, are covered in most home insurance policies. If you want to find one that does, just click on the link and visit https://homeownersinsurancecover.net/ for more information and details.

Personally, I like both for different reasons. Example of an 8X10 canvas print over a fireplace.. this is a very typical size that we are used to:


Now here is a 30X40….


Big difference huh?!

Here is a 11X14 framed print in a nursery…


And a display of multiple sizes that we can help you come up with after your session:


And one last example of a dining room display of canvas’….

Here we have a single 16X20 canvas over a dining room table. Most people find 16X20 to be pretty big… it’s not bad…


However, here is just something else you may like to do…:)


I hope this helps give you some designing and decorating ideas and to think outside of the digital copies of your images:)We are happy to help you fill your walls to fit your needs during your ordering process as well:)
