The deadline for canvas print orders for Christmas gifts has passed. There isn't enough time left, factoring in the Christmas rush for both the printer and the shipper.
CanvasPlus does have a canvas print of the Ancestor Totem available. It is a full size print of the original, 18"x36"x 1.5". If you would like to purchase it, please call CanvasPlus at 250-924-0901 asap (closed weekends). You can also go to CanvasPlus directly at 428 - 1st Avenue, Ladysmith BC.
If you live in the southern Vancouver Island area and could pick up the canvas print, I could check with Canvas Plus asap to see if it could get a special order done in time. But I would need your order by tomorrow, Friday December 16th, either by phone (see Contact) or through the Order Form on the Giclee Prints Sale page. Once I have the CanvasPlus go ahead, I would need payment by eTransfer or by couriered money order.
If Christmas is not a factor for you, once I receive your order, I'll get an expected time of completion wihin the printer's holiday schedule, along with an expected delivery date from the shipper.
