ARTISTIC PHOTO CANVAS
Convert your image to black-and-white or sepia before turning it into a gallery wrap using Artistic Photo Canvas. In addition to those effects, APC offers a Brush Strokes technique that simulates the look of an oil painting. Fine details are muted to give an image the authentic look of a painting while key elements, like facial features, are preserved. They even can apply what’s called a Texturizing Gel Coat to make it feel like a painting. Gallery wraps in sizes up to 36x48 inches are available, as well as other canvas print options, including unmounted canvas prints up to 40x60 inches. List Price: $49 (8x10-inch wrap).
Canvas prints, books and greeting cards are among the many choices available from Bay Photo. Make your images the centerpiece of a holiday or birthday card with options ranging from the traditional single-sided card to an accordion-fold with four panels for displaying multiple photos. Press-printed cards are available in 11 different paper types, including an environmentally friendly version made of uncoated, recycled paper. For books, choose from hundreds of customizable page layout templates, and hardcovers are available in lustre, metallic or canvas surfaces. List Price: $46 (8x10-inch linen hardcover); $44 (pack of 25 accordion-fold cards).
Mpix delivers a variety of fun photo novelty products and gifts for showcasing your stills.

Available in sizes from 8x10 to 24x36 inches, your image is printed on canvas, wrapped around a 1.5-inch wooden stretcher frame and ready for hanging on the wall. List Price: $55 (8x10-inch wrap).
