Last week, I got a chance to pick out a piece of artwork from FulcrumGallery.com. FulcrumGallery.com is a site that sells framed & canvas prints of artwork, photography and more. They have thousands of prints to choose form, and you can even get your own photo or artwork printed on canvas or as a framed print.
I spent a long time browsing the art on their site and still probably only looked at a quarter of it. I ended up being drawing to the vintage movie poster section. They had all sorts of movie posters available for both new and old movies, and even tons of international posters. I started searching from random movies and came across ‘Doctor Who and the Daleks’ staring Peter Cushing. I’m a huge Dr. Who fan and instantly fell in love with the poster.
For the print, I got a 1.5” Deep Canvas Wrap that was 11x 17. You can get thinner bars (0.75”), but I like the thick ones best. The canvas shipped within a few days of the order going in and I received it several days later. It came in a large box and was well protected during shipping. It looks great and I’ve already gotten several comments about it from my friends. There were only two minor issues. First, the preview showed a while edge around the artwork, but there isn’t on the actual print. Second, the sides and back are a bit sticky. I don’t know if something got on it before shipping or if some of the ink/paint melted during shipping due to the heat. It’s minor so I’m not worried about it.
Overall, I really like the canvas print. I’m putting it up in my office so that I can see it what I’m working on design commission. I love vintage posters and they are great sources of inspiration for me. The canvas I got was $67.97 before tax and shipping. It was also on sale (and still is). You can check out all of the artwork they have to offer at their website, and keep up with them on Twitter, Facebook and Pintrest. Also, you can learn more about art if you are interested. It can help you pick out the perfect piece for your home.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
