Ever seen one of those expensive canvas photographic art prints and thought "I'd love to have one of those, but I'll never be able to afford it?" A new Online business is counting on the fact that you have, and are using cutting-edge technology to bring premium-quality canvas prints to the home market, and prices that, at first blush, seem almost unbelievably low.

"We were constantly being asked why canvas art prints cost so much," says Josh Bevans, C.E.O. of "The truth is, it's a lot of work, and the material is expensive. But thanks to recent advances in digital printing, we can create a canvas art print of your wedding or any other photo for about a tenth of what it used to cost. Now anyone can afford a large format canvas print."

So how large is "large"? "The size of your couch," Bevans says with a laugh. "We do smaller prints as well. In fact, you can pick just about any size you want, from 8x10 to wall size. But obviously, we think the bigger prints are cool. Everyone does."

If creating a couch-sized canvas sounds expensive and time-consuming, that's because it is... or at least, used to be. "We've made it fun and affordable," Bevans says. "Prints like this used to cost six or seven hundred dollars, minimum. We can do it for as little as thirty dollars. The real breakthrough isn't price though, it's how our clients are able to create the canvas themselves, online, in real time. All you have to do is visit the site, click a button to upload your photo, and you're done. Or, if you want to play around with it, you can move the photo around, resize it, or see how it looks at different sizes. We've had people tell us that they visit the site just to play with the canvas creator."

BuildACanvas is up and online right now at In addition to their usual discount pricing, they are currently running a holiday promotion for 50% off extra prints. At this rate, it might not take them long to make their dream of "a canvas in every living room" a reality.
