While hanging art on the wall is mainly used to hide safes containing Napoleon's long-lost sand-blaster, occasionally the practice is used for decoration. Experiment with this obscure decorative device with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a personalized 16"x20" canvas from CafePress (a $99.99 value), redeemable online.
CafePress provides an array of inventive, humorous, and customizable clothing and gifts; its Photos to Canvas service allows photographers to turn one of their prized pictures into a work of canvas art. After you submit your photograph online, a CafePress artist will scour the image for any blemishes and make touch-ups when appropriate, as well as sharpen the image and balance its color to vibrant effect. CafePress uses only archival inks and coatings, guaranteeing your image will not fade for 75 years or until Rocky XII comes out. The finished image will come wrapped around a 1.5-inch thick canvas with a real-wood frame that will arrive at your door ready to hang on your living room wall.
Thanks to an iron-clad guarantee of satisfaction, CafePress customers can shop with the confidence of an invisible knight on a field of giant eyeballs. And with speedy service ensuring your museum-quality canvas is shipped within 2–3 days, you can use the newly enlarged picture as a family-friendly holiday gift.
Though CafePress's Photos to Canvas service has yet to receive many online reviews, check out its website for pleased testimonials from previous customers.
