Paper? Canvas? Framed? A helpful guide to our 3 standard print types

Hello lovelies and welcome to our first blog post! We aim to create resources to help guide & inspire you to create a gorgeous stylish space using wall art, within your budget.  Our prints range from budget friendly unframed prints / posters, to luxe gallery wall art.  With so many options on offer it can be hard to choose! We will take you through all our print types so you can make the right choice for your space and wallet.
 

 Art Paper (Unframed) + BYO frames 

This is our favourite as its so versatile! The most budget friendly with A4 size being the smallest and starting at only $19 AUD. Printed on thick archival 240gsm paper and professionally printed, these babies will last a very long time! They are sent rolled up in a tube for anything A3 or larger. A4 are sent in rigid cardboard mailers. 

Pro Tips - Watch out for glossy prints.. they can stick to glass! Our art paper prints feature a matte finish, so they won't ever stick to the glass or perspex faces in most frames.
Make sure you flatten your prints before popping them into a frame. We will write up a guide on this in the future. Basically add some clean white paper or cloth on top & bottom for protection, and place some flat objects on top like books. Wait a day or two and they should be ready to go 😊

Go ahead and order a few to get a discount. Any orders over 2 get 10% off (code = TENOFF). Here are some cute prints in A4, A3 and A2 size before we roll them up into a tube. 

 

BYO Frame :) Save some cash and buy your frames at Kmart, IKEA, or Freedom. Once you have your DIY frames and the prints have been flattened, simply pop your prints in and get styling. Easily swap out the prints at any time to change the look of your space later, BAM! Here we are framing up one of our art prints using a KMART frame..



Here is a video of our paper so you can get a better idea. These are sent to you rolled up in a tube for anything A3 or larger. A4 are sent in rigid cardboard mailers.



 

 Stretched Canvas 

Next up we have our entry level ready to hang artwork, our gorgeous framed canvas 😄 Your artwork is printed on canvas and wrapped around a frame. The frame is 3 cm deep from the wall. Edges of artwork wrap seamlessly around the frame depth. As canvas is a fabric it has a textured surface. 


Our Stretched Canvas cost is a little higher than the paper, however it is great if you cannot be bothered framing it yourself ... we hear you, our attention span = zero! These sit great on the wall, and have a clean minimal look. Of course they are also of excellent quality and will stand the test of time, just make sure you keep them away from water, kids and pets! We provide either free wall strips or a hook attached at the back. If you have a hook on your canvas instead, it will need to hang from a wall hook or nail. 


Pro Tip - These are lightweight and so easy to hang! The 3M command range have great options to can get them on the wall quickly and easily, even if you are renting 🙌  3M also have special canvas hangers if you prefer to change the canvases around often, check it out at Bunnings here.

Here is how they look on a wall - clean & sleek with no visible frames. Collect a few and group them together to create a gallery wall look like this:

 Floating Frame Canvas 

Now we are talking! These guys look soooo amazing on the wall and really make a statement. They start off the same as our printed stretched canvases above, then finally we add a floating frame on the outside to give it a gorgeous sleek finish. Frame colours available are White, Black and Birch. This frame is made of wood-look composite to keep it lightweight. No glass is included. With clear coat of protection added on top and wall hook on the back, this beauty is ready to hang and look amazing on your wall!

Pro Tip - You can use either 3M wall strips or a wall hook to hang these. They are lightweight & have a wall hanger attached at the top. We suggest 3M velcro strips or the universal hanger, check them out at Bunnings here & here.


Some drool-worthy inspo here.. these guys really make an impact! 


The devil is in the details.. these are not just called floating frames for no reason. Once the canvas is fitted inside it creates a floating effect, casting a shadow between the canvas and frame, making it look like it's floating on air. This creates a dramatic look and draws your eye further into the print itself.

And last but not least a quick video featuring these beauties:
