Printable Art, Gallery Walls and Statement Art Pieces for your Home Decor


Expressing Your Taste with the Best Art


Stand alone pieces command a room powerfully. A single piece lends itself to modern, minimalist aesthetics. But it can also create the opportunity for an intense flourish of expression and, even bold maximalism. 

Equally, a gallery wall made of several pieces is such a personal statement about your own unique taste and all the interests that add up to you. A sprinkle of eclectic frames adds character all by themselves.

Curating a gallery wall in your home can come together harmoniously with a large statement piece taking up the central space, from which smaller pieces add balance and contrast. But naturally, the best, large-scale pieces of art also come with a large-scale price tag. 

This is when printables really come into their own. Buying a printable for under £10 and having a print shop scale it up for you, means you can get the big price-tag look without having to remortgage your house.

Cheap Prints, Original Art? What's Not to Love?







Printable art is easy to find online. For just a few pounds you can have a print ready to go from your computer screen, you can run it through on your printer at home, and have a poster for your kids room or a last minute pressie, framed and wrapped, when you've run out of time and funds. It takes no effort and there's lots of cool stuff around. 

Isn't there? 




I don't know about you but I've found a lot of the instant printable art prints available on Etsy or elsewhere can be pretty... drab. Sometimes generic. And obviously cheap. There's usually a computer-generated brush lettering. There's often a vague quote that means almost nothing like "Bless This Mess" or "Home is Where the Prosecco is". There might be a teal background added and some sort of geometric pattern somewhere. But there's very little originality and certainly no heart and soul. 




The Case for Printable Art



Allowing clients to print my work themselves seems like a stroke of absolute genius. I can't justify having a stock of prints made myself, waiting for possible sales right now. And I have always worried ethically about the huge print-on-demand sites. It could be because I'm a control freak as well, but I like to know 



* how things are made
* who they're made by 
* and what they're made from




I just don't like the distance between myself and the people who might enjoy my work. Print-on-demand sites like Society6 and Redbubble communicate on behalf of the artist. If customers who enjoy my work get a bad service from an on-demand company, I can't do anything about it. 



This is why I think allowing my work to be available as printable art prints is a great option right now. For me and for buyers.



I've made several designs available. All with personality and quirky originality. But there's so much more to come. Find my printable art for your home HERE. And let me know what you think? Do you use a print-on-demand website to sell your art and products? What do you like about it? What do you dislike? Have you ever downloaded some art and printed it for your home or for a gift? I'd love to know your thoughts.
