Framed Prints

Framed Prints

I can't believe it's been almost 10 years since I started making hand-printed greeting cards to sell! Since the very beginning, I've gotten the same wonderful compliment so many times: "Your cards are so beautiful, I can't send them! I just buy them to hang them up on my wall!" And the same question again and again: "Can you make a bigger print to hang on my wall?" (The answer to that question has always been "Sorry, no!" The nature of old-fashioned analog printmaking means that I create a relief plate to print the cards and they all come out just the same size.)

SO... by popular demand, I am finally offering FRAMED PRINTS to hang on your wall! Yay! These are high-quality digital reproduction prints, which means they can be larger than the greeting card sizes. The frames are simple and beautiful, sustainable hardwood with a rich walnut veneer. These look soooo lovely hanging in your living room or make a gorgeous and thoughtful gift for any occasion - housewarming gift, Mother's Day gift or birthday gift, for starters. 

I'm so happy with the quality of these, I'm adding more and more designs to the collection. I started with the Hooray Rooster design, which is always one of my most popular card designs, and the one that has most often been requested in a large-size print. It's such a perky addition to your kitchen's breakfast nook, or a sweet housewarming gift for someone who's bought their first home. Then I added the Green Gardens print, which is another of my most beloved card designs (and which I originally designed as an illustration to hang on my living room wall, so it's kind of come full circle now). I've also created a framed print of the new "Dream" design - so perfect for a bedroom wall, right? Or any place in the house where you might like to sit and daydream. I'm working on more prints every day, so I will be adding more designs to the gallery day by day! I'm also feeling inspired and starting to work on some original watercolor and collage designs to add to the gallery, and I will definitely share more about those as I complete them!

The Conservation Series frame is made from solid wood claimed from socially and environmentally responsible forests. It has a clean and contemporary 0.75" wide x 1.25" deep profile with a smooth veneer finish. Premium shatterproof acrylic protects the face of the art print, while an acid free dust cover on the back provides a custom finish. Includes wall hanging hardware. Framed fine art print on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using an advanced digital dry ink method to ensure vibrant image quality.

Framed reproduction prints are not made in my studio, they are professionally printed and framed in the USA and will be shipped separately from other items.
