 As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales. This means that whenever you buy a product on Amazon from a link on onmycanvas.com, I receive a percentage of its price as a commission.
