These days it seems a hard task to find anything new. Photography styles are beginning to blur into one, and whilst nothing beats a simple portrait, there’s definitely a demand for new and innovative canvases to grace our walls. The market is saturated with companies offering families, couples, friends and individuals the chance to be captured on canvas, and whilst there’s certainly a place for these in our homes, we at Techno Type like to offer our customers the option of creating a canvas altogether more unique.

In the previous post I touched upon the topic of personalisation, affording our customers the opportunity to alter their images in a variety of ways to suit their needs and taste. In a similar vein, we encourage customers to be as creative and innovative as they like, providing you with a range of options to make your canvas stand out from the crowd. Previously we have had a customer come to us with their child’s old artwork from many moons ago, looking a bit worse for wear but evidently still a treasured memory. We were able to take these images, scan them onto our system, restore them and then transform them into a sturdy canvas built to last a lifetime. In the same frame of mind, we often have customers come to us hoping to immortalise a sentimental image such as an ultrasound scan or the handprints of loved ones. If you want to be different, the trick is to think outside of the box. A family timeline, a world map pinpointing your favourite places travelled, an inspiring quote or song, an important and memorable date or just a simple collage of the things you love; you are literally being offered a blank canvas – pun intended – so make the most of it!

Unlike many customers who restrict their customers by forcing them to choose from a list of somewhat limiting options, we make every effort to encourage creativity and to accommodate your heart’s desires. So think big, go bold and rely on us to make you a canvas that’s more than just a picture.

Since when did customer service become so faceless? In an age full of automated helplines and online FAQs, it often seems like the world has forgotten about the days of personal, comprehensive service. At Techno Type we don’t believe in letting computers do all of the work for us. To us, there’s nothing more important than ensuring our customers are happy, and without that personal interaction, how can anyone expect to receive the best end product?

At The Canvas Print Shop we provide our customers with the opportunity to sit with us and personally engage in the editing process. Once your photo has been received by us, we invite you to personalise your product in variety of ways. Customers can choose from a range of sizes, varying from the dainty and understated 6x6inch frame to the grandiose 72x38inch frame for those hoping to make a bit more of a statement! Not only are you able to specify the product’s size and dimensions, but you are also afforded the option of having your photo edited by us to enhance the colour, remove unwanted marks or to crop a particular subject. Further to this, we also offer our customers the opportunity to choose their option of side border colour/style. For no extra charge, customers can pick from any colour of their liking or select the ‘gallery wrap’ style, which mirrors the picture around the edges, granting the image a 3-D appearance.

Whilst many companies who offer canvas printing services limit their customisable options, we believe it’s only fair to provide our customers with this much more extensive service, particularly given that your canvas is likely to be hanging on your wall for years to come. Your photo is personal to you, so why should the service you receive be any different? Take my advice: ditch the faceless corporations and take your business to a company that cares. Nothing beats the personal touch.
