If you really want to have one, there is another option. You can make your own! Do it yourself projects are very popular nowadays and not just for creative people.

For this particular canvas print project, you will need to have a canvas. As our goal is to wrap the photo around the canvas, the sides of the canvas should be 2 inches smaller compared to the photo. If you have a printed photo that’s 12 by 12 inches, you need to find a canvas size that’s 10 by 10 inches. The photo quality should be the primo one because it is the best and it makes a big difference to the end result. You can have it printed at a local printing shop. You will also need wood glue but get the white one, texture coating, foam roller, small paintbrush, scissors and stapler.

The first thing you will need is to pour or squeeze glue all over the canvas surface. Make sure to put in a thick coating but not go overboard or your picture will be bubbly at the end. Smooth out the glue with the help of your paintbrush. Make sure your spread the glue evenly until the edge of the canvas.

The next step is to place your photo on a flat surface or a table, make sure that it is clean. Carefully lay the canvas with the glued surface down onto the picture. Make sure to align all sides before sticking them together.

Smooth out the surface with the use of a card or squeegee and work your way out from the center to the sides to remove any air pocket. Do the same on the back side of the canvas to make sure that everything is smooth. Fold the sides of the photo and mark the leftover corners and cut them. Put glue to the edges of the canvas and fold the photo. This should be done one side at a time before securing with stapler at the back side.

Once this is done, you can make your projects look more like professional canvas prints Australia by using your foam roller and spreading texture cream all over the surface and edges of the photo. Let dry and it is ready!
