Perfect Moment, Perfect Gift.
There is no better gift than one that comes from the heart. While we all wish we could splurge and spend thousands on the people we care about, most of us are living on a budget. When it comes to gifts of a milestone, how can you wow on a budget?
The answer might be simpler than you think.
Ask just about anyone what is the most memorable gift they have ever received, and chances are it had two important characteristics. It was both unique and personal. These are qualities that customized canvases really brings to the table. What’s so bad about an affordable and quick way to create a gift if it represents a moment that is absolutely one of a kind?
Celebrate a momentous anniversary with a print of their favorite wedding photos. Mark a first birthday with your favorite shot of the special little one in your life. Commemorate a bridal shower with a custom canvas print of the couple’s favorite engagement pose.
In just a few minutes on Canvas on the Cheap you can make a canvas print that is perfect for any event or special day. Life’s happiest moments - showers, weddings, birthdays, baptisms and anniversaries are moments that we all love to relive.
Why not bring these moments to life?
A custom canvas print is a gift that is sure to impress at just about every gift giving opportunity and it doesn’t have to break the bank. When you are looking for the perfect personalized present, think canvas prints.

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's been so gloomy these past couple of days, I'm ready for our beautiful Texas sunshine to come back! Speaking of gloomy, our event last week had to be moved inside of Yardhouse because of that crazy storm! For the past few months our events have had less than ideal weather so I'm hoping our May 23rd event at Flores in South Austin has better luck! Although, even with the storms and rain, you ladies of our community have come out, shown up, networked and shopped with our amazing vendors and I am so thankful to you all! For more info on who was featured at our April event, check below and please reach out to the ladies directly if you have any questions or want to order something from them!
A very special thanks to our amazing photographers!!!
