Canvas Prints...the new wall art

Looking for the perfect gift to give this holiday season? Look no further than a custom canvas print by Elephoto, powered by The Printing House {with over 50 years experience in custom printing!}

When I first learned about canvas prints through Elephoto, I was absolutely blown away. With 11 different sizes to choose from, starting at just $36.00, it's a great way to show off those spectacular photos that you've taken on your digital camera, had captured by a professional photographer, or even snapped on your iPhone!

I have to admit, we're one of those families that doesn't have family photos around the house. Being an artist, canvas and paint are always up on the wall and I so often yearn for the amazing photos that we've had taken of us over the years to be out on display. Canvas prints are the perfect balance between art and photography, and look stunning up on your wall.

Beautifully displayed in a nursery, as the start of your family photo wall going up a flight of stairs, or given as a gift, canvas prints are an amazingly personal gift to give. Just imagine the look of delight and perhaps a tear on a friends face, whose just had a baby, when you present her with a canvas print of her maternity or newborn session. Amazing!! I get all giddy just thinking about it!

Stunning...personalized...and perfect.

Custom Holiday Greeting Cards

Oh there's no place like home for the holidays...happy holidays...to you!

And if you can't be home for the holidays, the best way to get in touch with those near and far is to send a custom holiday greeting card!

Elephoto makes choosing your custom holiday card seamless, and with a wide variety of layouts, quantities and paper options.

Choose from flat or folded cards, starting at just $.89 cents each, you can easily select a box of 10, 25, 50 of 100 to ensure that everyone on your list gets the perfect card from you for the holidays. A tip from me, order a few extra just in case! You never know who you will bond with over the next month, and there's always that long lost friend or relative that you get a card from. If you order a few extra, you won't have that moment of regret thinking "shoot! I don't have another one to send!"

The holiday layouts at Elephoto are gorgeous. Swirling text and snowflakes, fun plaids and stripes, traditional navy with a flourish.

Simply choose your layout, enter in your text and photo and voila! A custom holiday card, perfect for giving!

Can't you just picture the look on the grandparents face when they receive a beautiful card like the one above, with your sleeping Santa on the cover? Amazing!

What I love most about Elephoto, aside from being 100% Canadian, is that their printing material is FSC certified, meaning that their materials come from responsibly managed forests. So, your can give a gorgeous card to your family and friends, and know that it was made in a responsible way.
