The Canvas by Numbers Difference

There are many brands out there. We are not the cheapest, and we do not intend to be. Our motto is to focus on providing a great painting experience and putting customers first. You are going to spend quite a few hours working on your painting. Is it worth it to risk it to save a few bucks? That's up to you! However, when we create our paint by numbers kits, we like to do them right.

Quality materials

Our durable 240gsm cotton blend canvases are printed in high resolution and color, so they're easy to read, reducing eye strain. The rich pigment acrylics will make colors pop up, and the custom wooden brushes provide a great painting experience. You get a reference sheet, color print, and instructions manual included in the kit.

Cheap materials to cut costs

Low-cost and low-resolution cotton canvases with black and white printing. The numbers are hard to read, and it can be frustrating to work on them for extended periods. The paints are usually too thin or too thick. Cheap brushes that snap easily. Often missing the reference sheet and any other extra materials.

Solid 60 days guarantee

Love your product or send it back. Any damage, issue during transit, or inconvenience is covered until the parcel reaches your doorstep. All custom products are covered against damage or production fault.

Issues with sellers

Poor quality control with little or no guarantees. Each painting kit is like playing the lottery. Support is very slow and difficult to reach. Usually ends in PayPal or bank dispute, which is a long and frustrating process.

Licensed Artwork

Canvas by Numbers backs artists by paying for a license or/and royalties. Purchasing from us means you are complying with the law and supporting artists to continue with their passion. Do not support the black market! Help small artists and talents instead.

Stolen & illegal artwork

Sites like Amazon, Aliexpress, and many US vendors are known for selling cheaper paint by numbers. They are stealing the artwork without the artist even knowing and violating their copyright. If you don't see the artist's name in a product, chances are it is not legal.

Premium packaging

Colorful packaging ideal for gifts! Get your canvas rolled in a hard tube and forget about wrinkles. Pre-stretched canvases are shipped in a branded corrugated cardboard box.

Inferior packaging

Your order arrives in a cheap generic bag. You open it, and the canvas is full of creases, or even worse, folded! Now you gotta spend time ironing and trying to fix it! Sounds familiar?

Loved every minute of this one! So much fun to see how each dog turned out and my grown son loved his birthday present!

"A Friend in Need" - Review and Suggestions for Kit

The Painting was fun to do and has received great comments from friends and family. The paper template back up was too light and it the numbers were faded. Need to darken up the template. Since the printed canvas template has so many small detailed areas I would include a 10/0 liner and 18/0 spotter and replace one of other brushes with 3/0 or 5/0 spotter. It would make it much easer to fill in the smaller detail areas. I purchased these size brushes to complete this kit. Also, due to higher density of acrylic paints it helped to wet my brush before applying paint to the canvas. I found it coverd the crevassed canvas better than with a dry brush.

I really enjoyed completing this paint-by-number especially during our Covid Lockdown. Your kit was excellent and well presented. I have now received the other kit "Dogs Playing Pool".

Lynn Jamison (Maineville, US)

Completed it looks great. Loved that they give you number print to help with numbers. Had trouble figuring the numbering a lot of tiny numbers in a few areas and still couldn’t read them on the printout even with magnifying glass. I had to rework dog eyes several times to get them decent. I used my own different red for my light shade.

Great Past Time

This is my second quarantine paint by number. The first I bought from an entirely different company and I can definitely say this one is MUCH better quality. The canvas is smoother, making it easier to paint on, especially in the teeny tiny spaces. The paint is the perfect thickness, no need to water down. I also like that the canvas printing is in a light red (as opposed to black), as the red is easier to cover with the lighter colors. Customer service is great too. One of my paint pots arrived dried into a completely solid brick and they sent me a replacement right away. I bought the DIY wood frame which was easy to attach, however, I found it difficult to paint while it was mounted so I uninstalled it and will remount it after it's completed. Verdict: I would buy from this company again. Attached is my painting about 80% done.

A Friend in Need - Looks fantasic

So impressed with the way our painting has turned out.. well its almost finished, Ordered this during lock down and although it took a little while to come (due to covid) worth the wait. Have been doing this with my 14 year old son and has been so easy. Colours were a little different from the pictured post, however clearly identifies the image well. Cant wait to start the next one... an enjoyable way to pass the time!

Wife purchased a set for the family as an activity for stay at home, quarantine time. Came with everything needed and was a great way to disconnect and destress! Looking forwarding to the next one. The picture was not exactly the same page, but conveys the same gist.

Still working on this.

This painting was a hard find until a family member looked it up. So happy he did, because it was not hard to paint and was fun too.
