Send your student kids off to uni with a canvas print

Thousands of parents will be waving goodbye to their off spring in the coming few weeks, as the university year starts, and many will want to send them off with a gift.

Instead of the usual pots and pans and other practical but equally uninspiring gifts, why not consider a canvas print that will adorn the walls of their student digs bedroom and make them think of home?

If you have a large family, consider taking a great photograph with everyone in it (including pets) and uploading it to a Yourimage2canvas. The canvas printing firm can then print this heartwarming image onto a canvas print of any size – although you may want to keep the size reasonably small in this case!

Canvas prints are superior to photographs because they enhance an image and are more hard-wearing.

Students are constantly moving houses and rooms and are often coming back home with all their gear during the holidays, but a canvas print will easily stand up to being packed away and re-hung many times. This means the print will last throughout your child’s course and for many years afterwards.

If you think a family portrait might not go down too well with your son or daughter, getting a print made of one of their best shots taken during their gap year, or of their favourite movie poster or musical artist, will be a welcome gift.
