A Printable Decor exclusive is long overdue. This printable was inspired by a Target outing. While browsing, I snapped a shot of this subway art piece that I knew would be perfect for my stepdaughter’s new apartment. Target’s version was 24.99. Mine cost under $2. Read on to see how I did it, and to find the downloadable file.
Here is the print I created in Photoshop. It is 11×17 in at 300 ppi. I love this size for subway art because of the aspect ratio (verses 11×14, which I find to be to wide for its height if I am using one word all the way across), and because I can have them printed at my local Staples for less than $1.
To download, click the thumbnail and the full size version will pop up in a new window. Save to your desktop. I just save it onto a flash drive take it in to the store, and Staples will print it from there on regular copy paper. I often like to mount onto canvas, but never have found 11×17 canvases, so I end up framing this size. This time, I really wanted the canvas look, so I got resourceful. I found the board I ended up using in my garage (I collect them curbside whenever I see them because they are great for mixed media collages). This project cost $1.29 and materials I had on hand!
This is what I did:
To add a hanging mechanism, staple picture hanging wire horizontally across the back near the top with a staple gun.
I love it, and so will it’s recipient (if I don’t decide to just leave it right there on my mantel!Pin It
