Earlier this month we announced a random draw for a canvas from Artistic Photo Canvas. The deal was simple. Put your name in the hat, and as long as you have a Canadian or U.S. mailing address you’d be eligible to win a chance at getting a 16×24 canvas of your own work, as well as one of mine. I’m going to announce the winner in a moment but first I want to pass along an offer APC is giving to everyone.
When I talked to Lew at APC about this, he was really excited to give away the canvases, and frankly this is a pretty generous giveaway; Lew and his crew at APC are like that. But he wanted to sweeten the deal for everyone that didn’t win. So if you order a 16×24, or larger, canvas before midnight PST on July 6th, Lew will also give you a free 8×12 of the same Venice print I’m giving to the winner. There are two catches. The first, and I’m sorry to do it to my international friends, is that this offer is only for Canadian and U.S. customers. Sorry. The second is that there’s only one free canvas per customer.
I love my work on canvas and APC is my choice. I was struck by the percentage of people that commented on this blog post with comments like, “I’m not worthy” or “My work isn’t good enough.” All I can say is that your work doesn’t have to be perfect to print it. How can you really develop your craft without printing your work? By all means, only print the stuff you love, but if I waited for my work to be perfect I’d never print anything.
APC is an eco-friendly lab; the first and only major online lab to exclusively use only OBA-free and fluorescent whitening agent-free canvas, and that means a lot to me. It also means your photographs last longer without going yellow. They only print on canvas and I really believe they’re the best in the business. I love these guys. They are personal and professional and everything they’ve done for me has been amazing. Anyways, I’ll stop gushing. If you want to see how good your photographs can look, put one on big canvas.
Here’s what you need to know about placing an order to get the free Venice print. Go to the website, place your order and use coupon code: ONEOFYOURS. Easy-peasy. They’ll send you an 8×12 canvas of my work, along with the 16×24, or larger, of yours.
Now, without further ado…the winner of this month’s giveaway is Meryl Alcabes! Congratulations, Meryl! Lew will be touching base with you to get your prizes to you. We’d love to see what the canvases look like so feel free to take a picture once they’re safe and hung with care in your home. 🙂
