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.

Photo Canvas Prints for the Holidays

2015 is coming to a wrap! It is mid-November and you are enjoying your sweaters and a warm cup of tea. And before you know it, the Christmas tree will be up and everything will feel a little cozier. It’s a special time of the year when you get to look back at all the awesome things that you have done. Maybe you are reminiscing about the trip that you took to the Bahamas or the new niece that was born. Or this was the year that you graduated from high school and you started the next part of life adventuring to a new city to study in a collage. Whatever the events may be, I am sure that you have some special pictures that could be turned into a lovely photo canvas.

Picture Perfect Photo Canvas

With all of the new picture taking technology that has been popular this year from the updated iPhone cameras to the new Go Pro to the drones, our personal picture collections are stuffed with memories. But if you really think about it, there are probably a couple pictures that you can pick out of a selection that really capture a special day or event. That one special photo that sums up all the great memories is the one that would definitely look the best as a photo canvas.

Simple and Sleek

A great thing about a photo canvas is that you don’t have to frame the canvas. They are well made, as the canvas is stretched onto a wooden frame. This gives the image some dimensions and defines the image that is hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk. The look is very simple and sleek, which gives it a modern look. This makes it an easy piece to add to any home or office.

Memories and Moments

Capturing a special moment or photograph of someone is easy nowadays with the technology we have available literally right at the end of our own fingertips. Before, creating a photograph was a tedious task of carrying a large camera, hoping that the perfect moment was captured, and then developing the picture before we got to see exactly what was even captured. Back then, photos really came to life through a camera. Nowadays, they often stay as a digital file saved in our computers and phones. Making a photo canvas print is a modern way to bring your pictures to life so that you can share with friends and family… beyond your phone or Facebook!

Love is… Gift Ideas

Do you remember reading the comics of the cute naked couple, by the artist Kim Casali ? Each comic would say “love is…” and then have a short saying such as, “reading each other as a book.” This concept can make for great gift ideas. With a photograph of a couple, you can create your own version of what love is. The example above is one that I made for my cousin’s bachelorette party gift. Definitely being  one of my better gift ideas, there was a lot of positive reaction from everyone. My aunt and grandma liked it so much that they wanted me to get one for them also. My grandma said it would also make a great post wedding gift with photos of the bride and groom.

Original Article:


I have a cousin that went from a college drop out to a business owner that was featured on Forbes magazine. Just a few years back, I remember him being the kid that gets ready to go to out by rolling out of bed in his gym shorts, throwing on a wrinkled t-shirt, and stepping into the nearest flip flops. Now he is a business owner of Big Fish Presentations, a successful marketing production company that has had so much growth within the past few years. So I observed his new lifestyle and I saw clues on how he kept himself motivated. Around his apartment were Post-it notes everywhere reminding him of his goals, accomplishments, and inspirational quotes.

Inspirational Quotes and Motivation

Sometimes it can be hard to get motivated merely by the light shining through the window on your to-do list. Motivation fueled by having a list of goals is sometimes just not enough. Researchers did studies and they found out that the most potent source of motivation comes from emotions. But of course, you probably didn’t need a scientist to tell you that. This is because emotions come from passion, and that is a genuine source of motivation. So listen to your gut feeling, and through that, you will know what is right for you. Then motivation will follow. It always helps to come across pick me ups in forms of inspirational quotes. A photo or an inspirational quote on the wall can be a simple reminder of what fuels you.

Designing a Custom Inspirational Quote Canvas

Remember those inspirational posters that you would find in a doctor’s office with a photo a guy climbing a mountain and bold white letters spelling out “Success!”? Okay, maybe those are a little overdone and outdated to hang in your office or home today. Now you can bring back inspirational quotes in a unique modern way with our customization design tool. We have a lot of backgrounds you can choose from, or you can make your own custom background and upload it using the product designer.

Personalize Your Baby Photos on Canvas

When a new born baby arrives in the home, you can expect a lot of things to change. I hear that you get less sleep and life starts revolving around your new little roommate. It may be a roller coaster that takes you for a quick ride, so remember to cherish each moment. My father knew this and when my sister and I were born, his video camera and photo camera became extensions of his arms. In my parent’s house, you can find a collection of VHS tapes that are filled with baby footage along with a thick album collection of baby photos. Film photos and videos were the classic ways to document the memories of babyhood in the 80s. Now you can create modern custom canvas prints as a new creative way to express your baby photos!

Inspiration for Baby Photos

I stumbled across some baby photos that really stand out. Sioin Queenie Liao is a freelance artist that is inspired by taking photographs of her baby boys. She creates home made props to put together scenes and uses her baby photos to illustrate a dreamy fairy tale. She uses regular household items such as toys and plain clothes to create these scenes. Her expression of love is really inspiring and I really recommend checking out her website at the following link: http://wengenninwonderland.com/

So this is to all the mothers out there

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed but the mother never. A mother is something absolutely lovely.” -Kim Storozhuk
