Whether you’re creating an elaborate gallery wall, seeking the right frame for that new photograph or picking a canvas for your next DIY, size can make or break your project. Buying something too small or too big, too wide or too tall—it’s a lot to consider. Before you start shopping, take some time to find the best fit for your home. Below we’ve outlined nine popular canvas sizes for a home decor project. Or, if you’re looking for more options, scroll down to understand how to create a custom canvas for any type of home  decor or craft project.

10" x 8"

10"x8" canvases are a popular choice for fill-ins in gallery walls or as a small desk or bookcase accessory. Its size makes it versatile for a variety of artwork - you can mount your favorite family photo or simply print out an image and trim to fit.

Good for: Desks, bookcases, small hallways
 

10" x 14"

To upgrade to the next level, opt to use 10"x14" canvases if you have a print or piece of artwork that looks best matted. This canvas is also large enough to accommodate a photo collage - you can easily stack four 5"x7" photos into this canvas.

Good for: Small photo collages, guest bedrooms, kitchens

 

12" x 12"

The 12"x12" canvas is an easy pick if you want to display a large photo, but may have limited wall space. This canvas size looks great with a single large image or broken up into a photo collage - get creative with your photo sizes!

Good for: Apartment living rooms, bathrooms, gallery walls

 

24" x 10"

While odd in shape, the 24"x10" opens up more possibilities than it limits. Fit this canvas in unique places of your home like on a mantle, above a kitchen stovetop or over your bedroom headboard. This canvas looks lovely showcasing a panoramic cityscape or large family photo.

Good for: Fireplace mantels, kitchen, long hallways

 

16" x 16"

Use a 16"x16" as the "wow factor" to a gallery wall or hang on its own above a bedroom dresser. With plenty of space, create a unique photo collage by combining photos and fun quotes.

Good for: Living rooms, dining rooms, guest bedrooms

 

 20" x 16"

Slightly larger than the 16"x16", the 20"x16" canvas allows you to display longer photos like wedding pictures, tall buildings or expansive landscapes. Hang this behind a desk or above a doorway.

Good for: Offices, game rooms, living rooms

   

 36" x 12"

Similar to the 24"x10", the 36"x12" canvas works well in longer hallways or over your entertainment center (it’s the same width as a 42" TV). Print inspirational quotes or your favorite travel photos on this canvas.

Good for: Living rooms, bedrooms, entryways

   

 20" x 30"

This tall canvas leaves a lasting impression on any room. You can opt to hang it above a sofa, but it’s also tall enough to prop up against a wall as a standalone image.

Good for: Studies, bedrooms, living rooms

   

 24" x 36"

Ready to really impress your guests? This large 24x36 canvas can set the stage in any room with an expansive wall, but will do best in a room where it’s the only photo.

Good for: Bedrooms, living rooms, offices

   
     

Finding Your Perfect Canvas Size

Whether you’re shopping for artwork or creating something yourself, picking the right canvas size is critical for your one of a kind pieces. We outlined some popular choices above, but the number of standard canvas sizes available to you are in the dozens.

Why Canvas?

Before you resort to a regular ol’ frame to showcase your favorite photo, consider getting it professionally done as a canvas print. The material (typically cotton or linen) is hand-stretched so the fibers turn an ordinary photo into a work of art. Additionally, opting for a canvas print is actually lighter weight than other wood wall art pieces, making it ideal to change around for gallery walls or during redecorating. If you’re missing the elegance, try a framed canvas for museum gallery quality.

When you’re about to dive into a DIY project—whether it’s painting or home decor—it helps to have a plan in place to allow your creativity to flourish. Starting off with a blank canvas, use our guide above to determine the size and shape that best suits your project.

Last month I was contacted by local Hespeler resident Don French with the aim of putting together lawn signs. Like the majority of us who use the paths here in Hespeler, Don was fed up of irresponsible dog owners who act carelessly regarding picking up after their dogs. 

For this project I designed and printed 20 16x19 coroplast signs which came with metal H-Stands. 

It's great to see them around the community and even nicer to see good people like Don voice their opinion with the aim of making our community much better.

Drop me a line if you need any design, print or marketing work and in the meantime.... lets clean up after our pets :)

When deciding which marketing tactics to pursue, be sure to consider signs that can be put up in a yard or on the roadside. With a professional look and a simple call-to-action, these signs can be an effective and non-invasive way to build your brand in your local community. 

As you are respectful to your local public and private properties, you'll find yard signs to be a good way to educate others about your products and services. The most important lesson to follow when it comes to yard signs is to be respectful of where you put them in the ground. If you offend property owners or get in trouble with local law enforcement, your reputation may suffer and it could prevent you from getting the return on investment you need.

Do your homework and follow these best practices for placing yard signs to grow your business with this strategic way of advertising.

PUBLIC PROPERTY

When it comes to public property, the way to do your homework about when and where to place your yard signs is to look into city, county, provincial and federal guidelines and laws. Yes, you'll need to know exactly where you can place these mini billboards. But once you are familiar with the rules in your area, you'll be set to begin displaying your business to your potential end consumers.

One possible strategy is to target areas with high demand for a better service. You could hire some additional help to get them put out in the right locations or you and your existing team could do it yourselves after every sale or installation. You'll know how effective the signs are by getting a call tracking service for the phone number you display on the signs. By keeping track of when and where your signs are placed and checking to see how many phone calls are being generated, you'll be able to identify the highest demand from your local markets.

PRIVATE PROPERTY

Ask the owner. That pretty much sums up the basis requirement for placing yard signs on private property. If you don't get permission from the owner, don't put out the signs. It's really that simple. 

And the best property owners to ask are the ones that just made a purchase!

When you do get permission, remember to "keep it classy" when putting out your signs. What we mean by that is to train your team how to make a professional display. Take a few minutes to review these pointers with each member of your team:

  • Stand Signs Straight Up
    As people drive or walk by, they'll notice if a sign isn't standing up straight from all angles. It seems petty, but it makes a better first impression when the sign isn't leaning at an angle. It also makes the signs easier to read from a distance.
  • Spread Them Out
    If the property owner has a small or regular sized yard, one sign neatly placed in a good spot will most likely be sufficient to draw enough attention to their property. If the owner has a large yard or even several acres of land, it's best to be strategic and spread out the yard signs. A good rule of thumb is to place the signs every 600 feet or in highly visible areas, but remember to not make the signs too distracting for drivers. And make sure trees or large bushes aren't blocking the view of passersby. 
  • Check with the Neighbors
    When you've sold your product or service to a certain residence, take 10 minutes or so after your appointment to ask the surrounding neighbors if they'd be okay with you placing a sign in their yard for a day or two. Even if they say no, it's still a great conversation starter and, who knows, the neighbors may end up buying from you too! As long as you're respectful, you can't go wrong. Plus, when other neighbors see your sign in their neighbor's yard, it builds a lot of credibility for your business and reputation.
  • Simple Call-to-Action
    Design your yard signs with a simple call-to-action. Identify the product or service you're selling, include your phone number or website, add some urgency, create a clean design and let everyone know if it's a new service. And that's all. If you put too many words or too much fluff on the sign, you may end up turning off potential buyers.
  • Post It on Social Media
    Snap a picture of a recently placed yard sign and post it on social media! It can be a fun way to promote your business online. Again, ask permission from the property owner and, to be safe, avoid street signs, house numbers or anything else that can identify the location. There's no need to tell everyone exactly where you made the sale or placed the sign.

Keep in mind, most of these pointers should and can also be used when placing signs on public property. Most of all, we hope these tips help you generate some ideas of what to do with yard signs!

BE CONSISTENT

Whatever you do, be consistent with your strategy and give it enough time to determine the effectiveness. Don't ditch the yard signs until you've given them sufficient time to generate results. People are naturally skeptical and sometimes they need to see the yard signs several times before they call your number or visit your website.

But, if you follow these best practices for placing yard signs, your chances of getting more sales may go way up! Many of our clients have seen a lot of success implementing these types of guidelines in their daily efforts.
