You Frame Photo to Canvas Review
I received a photo to canvas kit as a gift a while ago back and finally decided to go ahead and try it out today.
So this kit is the You Frame print at home canvas kit.
It was super simple to do but I didn't start out so well. I loaded the canvas on top of the paper that was in my printer's tray and I ended up with a portion of the picture on the canvas and the rest on a white paper that was accidentally dragged in. So thank goodness that I printed it on the wrong side of the canvas because I was able to print it again. They do give you an extra sheet just in case.
You get three frames.
Four canvas sheets. Load one at a time and make sure your tray is empty. It made it much easier for my printer to grab the sheet and start printing.
Let your printed canvas dry. It takes only a few minutes. Then you flip it upside down, peel the paper from the glue on the frames (which I got really excited and the glue came off too and then I couldn't get it back on the frame and I ended up using my own double sided tape which isn't as strong as what the frame comes with) and line up with the canvas.
As you can see this is the one that I had to print on both sides. Oops! You can't tell. Phew! You have to cut the corners off and fold over the edges and there is a little thing that clamps both sides together. It's so easy. I can't say this enough.
This is what it looks like when all the sides are clamped together.
I am really happy with the end result especially considering that it took no time at all to get this done. Yay!
I think the price for these is $30 or $40 (I don't actually know because as I mentioned they were gifted to me). This product get's an approved stamp from me because I love it.
