CanvasPop Launches ‘Word Art Maker’ to Add Custom Texts to Images for Home and Office

Ottawa-based CanvasPop, a provider of personalized art and on-demand printing services, this week unveiled a new photo editing tool called Word Art Maker.

The web app includes a range of customization options, including a text editor that allows customers to add their own text to photos. This includes adding names, dates, and quotes to any image they upload themselves or one they’ve chosen from a gallery of curated templates.

“Let’s face it, the traditional motivational posters that were found on the walls of offices and dorm rooms in the ‘90s are stale and unstylish,” says CanvasPop cofounder Adrian Salamunovic. “We’ve created an easy-to-use web app that lets anyone create beautifully designed art with words that truly inspire—something that people will actually want to show off on their walls.”

Customers start off with a photo they’ve taken themselves, or can choose from one of the tool’s pre-loaded typeface designs. These curated templates are classified into common categories including weddings, geography, etc. The tool makes it possible to add custom or design elements in a unique and personalized way, turning everyday users into designers.

Pricing starts at $105.
