Gift Ideas: Pantone Canvases

11:30





Being a graphic design student, it's pretty much standard to love pantone chips. It also means I know a lot of people who'd love to receive Pantone presents for Christmas! I'm not saying only designers will love them though, I'm pretty sure even New Look sold Pantone socks last year and I know you can get Pantone cups from John Lewis.

These canvases are £25 from Pantone Art, and in my opinion they're the perfect gift for someone who is design conscious, or someone who has everything (eg. my boyfriend)! They are silkscreen on canvas, ready to hang, and come with a certified print number certificate, plus there's free delivery on the site. There's 12 different colours to choose from, so you can choose their favourite colour, or get something that's a bit more neutral just to be safe!

What do you think of these canvases? Would you consider buying someone a canvas for Christmas?

  1. Sorry to be a bit controversial but I just don't get it! It could be that I'm not an art buff but art to me is usually something where you can see talent expressed. There is nothing special about this (in my opinion) and is something that you could make yourself for a few quid. I sat here for a while trying to work out if you hang it as it is or if it's blank for you to do your own art work on top lol! x

    1. It's all personal opinion, I know lots of people who'd like these :)
      One thing I'd say is that there's a difference between "design" and "art", and Pantone isn't particularly "art" that you'd go and see in a gallery, it's design. It's just the same as saying 'Why would you spend £200 on a designer bag when you could get one for £5 from Primark?' I guess. x

  2. Lola, I think Pantone is more about embrassing the simple, the techincal and the behind the scenes side to art and more specifically graphic design, than trying to be actual art itself. I have a stripey carpet and think one on these in each colour of stripe on the wall would bring the room together lovely... I already use a pantone mug (186c) as a mini house plant pot. Now I just need to work out the Pantone references on the stripes and ask Santa!
