If you want cheap art for your walls, or even to create a gallery wall, then digital downloads are the go! Etsy has piles and piles of them. You can choose photography prints like landscapes of the beach, desert, building, plants. Or even abstract paintings.

I have done this so many times. For me at home, or for clients when doing a cheap and quick makeover in their home.

Here are some print ideas you might like.

How to

  1. Buy your frame first. Kmart is always my go-to. Lots of sizes and colours available.
  2. Work out the size of the print you will require to fit your frame. If you’re doing a gallery wall just write down the multiple sizes you need for each frame.
  3. Upload your file to the Officeworks Print & Copy section.
  • I always choose coloured poster
  • 160gsm coated paper
  • Upload your design

TIP – if you have an odd size frame you want to fill, just choose an abstract-style print so you can chop it down. It’s better to chop down, than accidentally print something too small.

 

If the file won’t fit, you can resize it yourself via free online tools like PicMonkey or BeFunky. If this is too tricky and the file just doesn’t look right in the Officeworks upload area then justΒ pop the file on a USB stick and take it to your local Officeworks where they will help you with all of this.

I paid for it, chose to pick it up in store and was sent an email about 4 hours later saying it was ready to pick up. I got it home, trimmed itΒ to fit the frame and DONE!!!

There you go… now you can easily do different sizes and create a full gallery wall very cheaply.

If you’re thinking of creating your own gallery wall here is the HOW TO.

    Thank you so much for this Katrina!! I didn’t realise it was so easy to print from the digital Etsy prints. Just a quick question – is Pic Monkey easy to use for someone not very technological? x

    Hi Katrina, I have done the same for a few prints at my place. I usually print it as a photo (I think….the girl at office works helped me). I’m about to print another one….should I be printing as a colour poster instead? Love your work πŸ™‚

      I think it’s just a cost thing? I like the poster because of the sizing πŸ™‚
