Hi. I'm culling a group of family pictures, from our wedding, family simchas over the years, etc. and want to have them enlarged to hang up, to different sizes. I can't decide between canvas or framed prints. Any ideas?

Canvas prints look neater on the walls but are way more expensive. And you would need a digital image to make an enlargement, especially on canvas. Otherwise the enlargement will come out blurry.

All my pictures are online already. Many already in Snapfish, although I may use a different website. Is that what you mean by a 'digital image'?

Yes. If it's online they'll come out fine.

Canvas looks really neat and easier to hang symmetrically.

Look into styrene. It’s like a thick foam and looks really nice

If you’re doing canvas, I found Costco to be the cheapest—and really good quality.

If it is what I think it is its really nice- but if you have little children hang it high. We did something like this and little dd did “scratch art” in it with her fingernail!

That depends on the resolution of the photos and how much you intend to enlarge them. But the place where you order the prints should be able to advice you on that.

J.C. Penney often has amazing deals on canvas prints
