What is printable art?
Printable art is an easy way to get great quality artwork at an affordable price. After purchasing you can download your artwork right away, with no wait times or shipping fees! You can choose to print your designs at home or have them professionally printed. DIY décor allows you to decide how you want to customize your artwork. My favorite thing about printables is that it gives you the option to purchase any frame of your choice or you can decide not to have a frame at all. All our printable wall art and posters can be printed on art prints, posters, and canvas. The options are endless!

However, some printers can print much larger sizes. Keep reading to find out more information about how to print your printable art and posters from home.
What type of printer should I use?
My favorite printer is the Canon IP8720 Wireless Printer. The print quality is incredible, and it can print up to 13 inches x 19 inches.
What type of paper should I use?
The kind of paper you choose to use is a personal preference. You can choose to print on matte, semi-glossy, satin, or glossy paper may also be used for your prints. Matte paper has a flat look meaning not shiny. Glossy means the paper has a shiny look. If your printer has a quality setting, always select the highest quality possible. I prefer heavyweight cardstock paper.
Favorite heavyweight cardstock paper: Inkjet/Laser 80lb Cardstock
