New Products: Part One ~ {Pensacola, FL Pet Photographer Allison Shamrell}

Time for a new series on the blog! I’ve been working behind the scenes quite a bit, getting things ready for the new year and making sure each of my future clients will have an amazing experience! Part of that is offering more than just 8x10s and 4x6s. I’ve been expanding my product line, and I’d like to show you my trademark product, which 90% of my clients purchase simply because of the wow factor!

The canvas gallery wrap is relatively new to the photography world. It’s a digital image printed onto canvas – yes, canvas – which is then stretched around a wooden frame. The effect is almost like the image is floating! You can see at least part of the picture from anywhere in the room, even if you’re 90 degrees from the direction the gallery wrap is facing. The final product is a photo that doesn’t need a frame- because it’s already built in!

Here you can see the canvas texture on the photograph:

It’s obvious from up close, but much more subtle when you step back and don’t use a zoom lens :)

Check out the way it’s folded behind the frame:

You can tell it’s real canvas material, not just patterned paper. Here are a couple of photos of the way it’s attached to the back, and you can see the study construction of the frame as well as more of the canvas texturing.

One suggestion I always make to my clients is, when in doubt, always go big! That “big 8×10” print will seem bite-sized next to a 16×20 canvas gallery wrap, and when you have a photograph that you really treasure, it only makes sense to let it become a focal point of the room. In fact, my canvas gallery wraps don’t come in any sizes smaller than 16×16! My clients love how their photographs suddenly become their walls’ centerpieces, and you just can’t do that with (even) an 11×14.

I love taking my canvas gallery wrap samples to meetings with clients, too, because it’s fun to see their eyes get big and hear them say, “Wow!” These products turn photographs into museum-quality works of art, and it’s just so much fun to hang up something different! I just ordered my sample of 24×36 inches, and I just can’t wait to hang it up in my meeting room!

Thanks for reading, and soon you’ll be hearing about more products which you may never have seen before! Stay tuned!
