Steps to Create Personalized Prints

  1. Choose Your Theme and Style:
    • Decide on the overall theme of the nursery (e.g., woodland, ocean, fairytale) and ensure the prints match this style.
  2. Select a Print Provider:
    • Choose for personalized posters and canvas prints. Check the gallery for design options.
  3. Provide Personal Details:
    • Provide accurate details, such as spelling of names, birth dates, and other stats, for name prints or birth announcements.
  4. Design Process:
    • If using an online service, follow their design steps to personalize your print.
    • If commissioning an artist, communicate your ideas clearly and review sketches or drafts before finalizing.
  5. Choose Print Type and Size:
    • Decide on the print type (canvas, framed print, poster) and the best size in your nursery space.
  6. Printing and Framing:
    • Some services will print and frame for you. If you still need to, ensure you get high-quality prints and frame them yourself.
    • Choose frames that match the nursery decor and are safe to hang.
  7. Placement:
    • Plan the arrangement of the prints on the wall. Use paper templates to visualize the layout before hanging.
    • Ensure the prints are securely hung, especially if placed over the crib.

Tips for a Cohesive Look

  • Consistency: Stick to a color palette that matches the nursery’s theme.
  • Balance: Mix different sizes and types of prints for visual interest.
  • Spacing: Keep a consistent spacing between frames for a clean look.
  • Mix with Other Decor: Integrate personalized prints with other wall decor like shelves, decals, and 3D art to create a dynamic wall display.

Personalized prints enhance the nursery’s visual appeal and create a meaningful and memorable space for your baby to grow.
