Three Reasons Prints Make Great Gifts

There’s a seemingly endless list of gift-giving occasions: birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, and other special celebrations. With so many moments, it can be hard to find a gift that’s truly special every time, something unique and memorable. If you’re searching for a unique gift for someone special in your life, consider gifting them a fine art print! Our collection includes hundreds of vintage photographs and posters, all of which are available for purchase as fine art reproduction prints.  

Give the Gift of Fine Art Prints

There are plenty of reasons prints make great gifts, but we don’t expect you to just take our word for it! We’ll go over some of the main reasons we think fine art prints make a great gift for anyone in your life. By the end, we hope you’ll be inspired to browse our collection next time you find yourself in need of a unique gift for someone special. 

1. Prints Can be Customized to Exactly What You Need

Every person is different, with unique interests and preferences, and the gifts we give should reflect that! Instead of giving everyone the same generic gift, each one should be unique to the person we are giving it to. With prints, that’s easy to do! You can customize your gift so it’s perfect for the person who will receive it. 

We offer hundreds of images, each available in a range of sizes and on multiple print surfaces, so we truly have something for everyone. And if you don’t find exactly what you need in our ready-to-order options, you can always reach out to us to request a custom size or to discuss a custom project! We’re happy to help make your order perfect. 

Prints on Archival Paper and Canvas  

All of our images can be ordered on either fine art paper or canvas. All of our materials are fully archival, and museum quality, so you can be sure you’re getting the best no matter which print surface you choose. 

Since both options are archival, rated to last over 100 years without fading/discoloration, the choice between the two really just comes down to personal preference. Paper prints will need to be framed to protect the surface of the print before they can be displayed. Framed prints offer a more traditional look, and with endless frame options, there will always be a frame style to fit every budget and decor style. Our canvas prints are stretched onto hardwood stretcher bars and arrive to you ready to hang on the wall, with no framing required. This is more of a modern look and can have a similar feel to a canvas painting.

Print Sizes to Fit Every Space

We offer a range of sizes for each of our images, so you can get exactly what you need and what fits your budget. Whenever possible, we offer standard sizes to help make framing easier. Our smaller prints can make great simple gifts, while larger sizes can be more extravagant gifts, suited for more momentous occasions. 

2. The Image You Choose Can Represent Important Memories

Gift giving is a way to connect with someone, to share a moment through the gift. Gifts that are inspired by and reminiscent of shared memories can be incredibly special and are likely to become cherished keepsakes for the receiver. If you’re looking for a vintage image in our collection to gift someone a print of, consider an image that will be nostalgic for them, whether that’s nostalgia for a memory you share or a memory from their own history.

Vintage Photographs of Popular Destinations 

Our collection includes quite a few images of prominent destinations across the country, including major cities and national parks. Maybe you and your friends spent a fun-filled weekend in New York City or bonded over long hikes through Glacier National Park. A fine art print of one of our vintage photographs of these locations is the perfect gift to keep those memories alive! Every time the person you gift the print to sees it, they’ll be reminded of the good times they had. 

Reflect on Memories and Get Inspired to Make New Ones

While nostalgia can be incredibly powerful, prints that reflect special memories can also help inspire you to get out there and make new memories! You can gift a print of a vintage photograph of somewhere you visited with your loved one, or you can choose an image of someplace you’d love to go with them in the future. The print will be an inspiration to continue making memories together. 

3. Once Displayed, the Print Will be a Conversation Starter

The decor we hang on the walls of our homes and offices tends to be the first thing people notice when they enter the space for the first time. Prints and artwork hanging on the wall are easy to look at and strike up a conversation about. If someone you know loves to get into deep conversations, a print of a unique vintage photograph would make the perfect gift! It could be a photograph of the college or university they attended, or it could reflect their love of vintage cars. No matter what the image, it’s sure to inspire plenty of conversation.
