If you get the newsletter of follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen me waxing lyrical about printable artwork. This concept has been around for a while, and I’ve recommended it to plenty of clients with smaller accessory budgets, but until recently we had never rocked any at Casa Ronchetti. I don’t even know why we hadn’t! A years-long brain fart?
For the unfamiliar, here’s how it works: you purchase a digital file–say, on Etsy–and either print the image at home or send it to your favorite photo place. We do most of ours through Amazon Prime, but the engineer prints from Staples have been good for a couple of oversized things.
To peep a real life example, let’s’ take a gander at our bathroom:
We purchased the set of files on Etsy for $10, got them printed at 12×18 for another $10 total, and snagged a pair of Ribba frames from IKEA for $20. That’s a grand total of $40 for two generously sized pieces of art (the frames hold up to 16×20, for reference) and because we bought everything separately, I could customize my brains out and get exactly what I wanted.
Because I love you and I want you to be happy, I rounded up some more $10-and-under files from Etsy. And maybe I went a little overboard? Oh well:
I just hung up another printable beauty in my office (literally, yesterday) and will share that with you soon. We’ll probably hang yet ANOTHER piece above our bed, because once you pop you can’t stop. And, let’s be honest, I do love a low price tag. Do you have any art like this at your house? What’s your favorite place to find it? Where do you score affordable frames?
