  1. These ideas are so much fun! My friend had a really great idea at her wedding and ordered a blank canvas with the names and date of her and her husbands wedding in the middle to have guests sign it. Makecanvasprints.com
    offers the option to create custom canvases in a super easy to use 1-2-3 step manner. For a gift you can upload a personal photo, write a personal quote, and choose from their many graphics and backgrounds. Its a piece that will last, look great anywhere and is unique and one of a kind. Here is the link to the website if anyone is interested in creating custom canvas prints! -http://www.makecanvasprints.com/custom-canvas-prints/
