Spring is Coming | Design Your Own Shirt

You may recall a canvas print giveaway I ran a few months ago, courtesy of Printcopia. I am a fan of this company and I now own two canvas prints because I loved the first one so much!

Printcopia has a sister company called Dress United which is a custom t-shirt site where you can design shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts however you please.

I created a t-shirt for my sister that included two photographs and writing in a few colors and fonts. The colors were gorgeous, the service was great and the shipping speedy!

The team at Dress United would like to offer a discount to my readers! Get 30% off at Use the code BLOG30OFF4U at checkout!

Congratulations KATHY!! Check your email for details on how to claim your 8×10 canvas print!

Thanks again to everyone for entering.

Help Me Pick a Photo and Enter for a Chance to Win!

I was recently approached by Brendon at Printcopia to create an 8×10 canvas print of one of my travel photographs in return for a mention on my blog. I was super excited because after spending eight weeks in South America earlier this year, I have plenty of travel photos to choose from! Too many!

In order to take advantage of Brendon’s generous offer, I need to pick a photo to create an 8×10 canvas print.

But I just can’t decide which photo to use and I need your help. I’ve narrowed it down to seven photos — one from each country I visited in the eight weeks and one bonus shot. The seven semi-finalist photos are below.

And, here’s a bonus for you, my readers!

Let me know which photo you think I should use in the comments below. Your comment serves as an entry for a chance to win an 8×10 canvas print from Printcopia with ANY photo you wish. Once I place my order and receive my print, I’ll also write up a review of my experience. It’s a win-win!

Just let me know in the comments which photo you think I should have made into an 8×10 print. Then you’ll be entered for a chance to win.

It’s that easy.

Thanks for your help, and good luck!

I realized I really, really, really love the sea and the sky!

I did some research and learned that Printcopia has sister companies that sell vinyl banners, car magnets and lawn signs. Please note that I have never used any of these other companies.
