How to Create a Canvas Collage

Canvas Collage Guide

Canvas collages are a really neat gift that you can create for a loved one. With putting together many photos, you can create this look. This look is fun, since it has the look of a album page with a collection of photos displayed on one canvas. It can be a little tricky to figure out how to align all the images to make it look right. This is why we created a guide for you here at MakeCanvasPrints.com to help you through the process.

Using Our Customizer to Create A Canvas Collage

You can use our online customizer tool to create this look. The first step is to upload the photos you would like to use for your collage. The next step is re-sizing them and positioning them on the canvas to create the collage. If you are trying to place the images on the canvas and you are not particular on how they align, then this is the route to take. You can leave spaces between the images, and then fill the background with a color or a background design. You can also position the photos so that they slightly overlap each other to create this look.

Using an Offsite Tool to Create a Canvas Collage

If you would like to create canvas collages where all the photos are perfectly lined up against one another, then we suggest using an offsite design tool. Photo-collage.net has an awesome program to help you put together a perfectly aligned collage. They also have some tips and videos to help you through the process. This type of look is more crisp than the other type of collage look. They are both great looks, and it just really depends on what you or the recipient of the gift is looking for. So after you create the design from photo-collage.net, you can save the design on your computer. From there, you can upload it onto our customizer tool and it is ready to go!

Baby Photos

Baby photos always are a way to melt mom’s heart. If there is a baby in the household, you can take creative photos of the baby in the comfort of the home. Instead of going to a professional photography studio and spending a lot of money, you have everything you need already. Drawing inspiration from a creative mother, such as Queenie Liao, you can create fantasy scenes with objects found around the house. Queenie creates vibrant scenes with common house hold items such as linen and baby toys. You can also cut out shapes using felt, that can be found at a local crafting store. Most images also will be of good enough quality for printing if taken with a smart phone. But if you have your own camera, then that is even better! This is a great way to create something unique for mom.

Our online customizer tool allows you to upload multiple pictures. From there, you can resize and rotate the pictures to your liking. You can also use the tool to bring certain photos to the foreground or background. This is good for layering multiple photos when designing the collage.

How to Make Your Own Triptych Canvas

make your own triptych canvas

We are excited to share with you our new product, the triptych canvas. The triptych canvas set is stretched over 3 8×10 canvases totaling 24” x 10”. The three canvases are stretched on a 1.5 inch frame and come ready to hang on the wall. We already made the measurements for you so that it is easy for you to make your own triptych canvas. Without having to put in the guesswork of where the photos have to line up, it is a simple four step process.

Panoramic Triptych

Panoramic photos work great as a triptych canvas, since these photos tend to be longer in length than the standard photo. Landscapes are the most popular panoramic type photo and are compatible with the triptych canvas look. Breaking a landscape photo into three panels is a great way to add an extra design element to the image. This wouldn’t work as well as a photo with a single subject matter, such as a portrait, but if done right, it can still be done. Another type of image that would work well as a triptych canvas is abstract art. This look is often found in modern homes with large artwork on the walls. The canvases we have set up as triptych are smaller in size, but still can be compatible as small abstract art hanging in an office.

Make Your Own Triptych Canvas with Ease

Like we said earlier, the guesswork is done for you, so that you can make your own triptych canvas with ease. The images will be fully wrapped around the frame, and the measurements have already been made. When side-by-side, the canvases will line up evenly and the images will align perfectly. Therefore, the edges of the canvas will not be left blank, but will also have the images seamlessly carrying over to the next canvas. The gallery wrap look of the triptych canvas can be easily designed by you.

Designing a Photo Canvas

When designing the photo canvas, MakeCanvasPrints.com breaks the process into 4 easy steps to follow. Step one is uploading the image, step two is the option to add text, step three is adding a background, and step four is saving your design!

Origins of Valentine’s Day

Who is this mysterious St. Valentine that we celebrate each year in the US, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, and Australia? History says that he was a man who lived during the time of ancient Rome. Emperor Claudius outlawed marriage for young men, since he believed that unmarried men would make better soldiers. His theory was that single men are less hesitant to risk their life during battle. St. Valentine disobeyed the emperor’s orders in the name of love. He would hold young lover’s wedding ceremonies in secret. Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day in remembrance of this man, who fought for his belief in love!

Custom Canvas Prints: A Token of Love

Second to Christmas, Valentine’s day is the second most popular holiday where people exchange tokens of love.
