Social Media Canvas Prints

'CanvasPop' Turns Smartphone Pictures into Handmade Canvases

— November 29, 2016 — Art & Design
Smartphone cameras are impressive and social media sites continue to find new ways to allow people to store and share images, but CanvasPop is a company devoted to making those digital fragments more tangible. The company turns consumers' social media pictures into canvas prints that they can then hang anywhere.

Though CanvasPop can create prints out of virtually any digital image, the company focuses specifically on social media. Consumers can submit Instagram, Facebook, and Prisma images to the company and receive canvas prints in a variety of sizes. CanvasPop does more than simply printing a social media image, though. The company also has features that optimize and enhance any photo it receives. Consumers can even use the company's tech to add filters, just like on Instagram.

3. Print-on-demand Services - Disruptive opportunity: Establish a print-on-demand service that specializes in transforming digital images, particularly those from social media platforms, into tangible products like canvas prints, offering convenience and accessibility to customers.
Industry Implications
