Part of that involves making our home feel like, well, home. Earlier this spring we hired one of my favorite photographers to take some couples/family photos of us. We ordered prints and canvases from my favorite lab and they arrived yesterday! Guys, they look GREAT!
I thought I'd use our own experience with purchasing prints and canvases as a perfect opportunity to educate others about print sizes and why they matter. (You can also learn about why getting your photographed printed in the first place is so important here.) When decorating with custom photography, it's important to be BOLD. You gotta go big or go home.
When you're looking to fill wall space, an 8 x 10 just isn't going to do it. Most folks think an 8 x 10 is a large print size -- and it's easy to understand why that mistake is often made. 8 x 10 and its sister size, 8.5 x 11, are print-product sizes most of us are familiar with. Think about office paper, magazines, even cereal boxes. They all range between 8 x 10 and 11 x 14. When it comes to home decor, though, those sizes are just way too small.
