With Father’s Day just a few weeks away on June 15th you may find yourself wondering what gift you’re going to give Dad this year. Luckily, we creative types at Parrot Print Canvas have been hard at work coming up with some unusual ideas for printed presents.
Here’s our round up of unique personalised canvas print creations you can give to your Pa to show him you care.
A particularly good gift for the new father is a split canvas of firsts. You can combine snaps of first moments in one piece. For example, you could use an image of the first time the dad held or fed the baby or even baby’s first steps. Find tips on how to take the perfect shot of your little one in our recent baby photography post. If you or your children are a little bit older you’ll have many more moments to choose from, which means it could be much more difficult to narrow down which prints to choose and you might find yourself with a series of photos to transfer to canvas.
A photograph of you or you child on the day of birth sits brilliantly on a personalised canvas print alongside a calendar that features the date the recipient became a dad circled. You could also include the front page from the newspaper printed on the day the baby was born. Arrange a mixture of these things along with a first toy and photograph the collection to create your own extra special collage without the need for messy glue!
Shots of fathers in action are excellent ways to celebrate what makes him great. Select a photograph of him wielding the barbecue tongs, belting out a big number at the karaoke or setting up a tent and transfer your preferred print to canvas. Or, if you’re giving a gift that he can hang outside of the home – perhaps in his office – pick out a nice snap of a family trip to remind him of adventures you’ve tackled together.
If you’ve taken your snap on your smartphone you can even caption your image by processing it with Instagram, layering text over it using one of the many text apps such as Instaquote and finally, uploading it with our easy uploading tool. You can also upload photographs straight from your phone or from Facebook, which means it’s extremely easy to get a professional finish even without the aid of an expensive DSLR.
You’ve got plenty of time to get your print delivered in time for the big day and all of our digital canvas prints come with free delivery too!
