Printable Art

 

What is printable art?

Printable art is a digital art file that you can print on items you really love. It's a way to make original gifts, greeting cards, apparel, and home decor like wall art for a low cost. You can print really nice wall art on quality matte paper from your home desktop printer or you can upload your design to an online or local print service to create original gifts and apparel for personal use, including gifts for family and friends. You get ultimate flexibility in choosing the design placement, size, and print surface! Of course, if you are a craft-machine-owining-DIY-extraordinaire, then you already have a bunch of potential projects in mind. Let us know how you are using your art, we'd love to know how these designs are living out there with people like you!

What sizes can I print?

Every project is different, you can get real detail even with small prints using vinyl to transfer on fabric and apparel. As for wall art, every design can be printed from sizes as small as 4"x6" or A5 all the way up to 24"x36" and A0. We chose to include multiple design file types so that you can easily adjust the design to your desired printing size. File types included: .JPG; .PNG; .EPS; .SVG; .PDF; .AI. All of our designs are high-resolution 300 dpi or more.

 

Where do you recommend I take my files for printing?

If you're in the U.S. or Canada and uploading to an online service you can print wall art and other home decor at Finerworks.com or Persnicketyprints.com. Framebridge.com will also print your files and frame them for you as well. Locally in the U.S., Staples, Walgreens, FedEx Kinko's, Costco, Walmart, etc., will all print your files for you. Let us know if you encounter any difficulties, we're glad to help as we are able.

What kind of paper do you recommend?

Heavyweight matte or satin paper really looks great for fine art prints and home decor. Many office supply stores offer high quality heavyweight matte photo paper that will work well with your desktop printer.


Can I use your designs for commercial purposes?

All of our designs are for personal use only, and should not be used for commercial purposes or free distribution. Online and personal sharing of these files is strictly prohibited.


What is your return/refund policy?

If your digital files have not yet been downloaded, you are eligible for a full refund of your printable purchase. If you've ordered purchased prints and they arrive damaged, please contact us at contact@iconeclectic.com and share a photo of the damage so that we can send you new prints.


Printing at home or at the office:

We recommend using smooth cardstock or heavyweight photo paper for your prints - glossy, semi-gloss, satin or matte selections are matters of personal preference, but we tend to prefer matte and satin paper for fine art prints and home decor, as it is less likely to contribute to glare and reflection when framed.

If there's a "quality" setting, select the highest available. In the paper selection option, select the appropriate option for your selected paper.

Color management: Please be sure your printer's color management/color correction is disabled before printing, or you may end up with a color cast especially in white areas of your print. Here are some guidelines:

- Epson: Set Color Management to “None”, “Off” or “No Color Management”. Depending on the driver and version, you may need to select "ICM" before seeing any of these choices. Also make sure that the "print preview" option is NOT checked, or you may end up with a magenta cast to your print.

- Canon: the naming of the control may not always be consistent, but it will generally be “Off” or “None”

- HP: Set color management to “Application Managed Color”. Depending on the driver and version, you may need to select ICM before seeing this choice.

 

PRINTING AT STAPLES STORES (U.S. and Canada customers):

 

Staples is a great option for prints, you can get very inexpensive same day prints if ordering before 2 PM (with a small rush fee). 

For same-day/in-store 4x6", 5x7", 8x10" or 8.5x11" prints on matte paper: 

  • Select Staples' "copy and print services - color" option.
  • Select the 110lb. white cover/card stock option for best results.
  • When picking up your order, be sure to review your prints - if there are any print issues, the staff should be happy to reprint your order for you.

For same-day/in-store 11x14", 16x20" and 20x30" on semi-gloss photo paper:

  • Select Staples' "photo enlargements" option.
  • Choose your print size
  • The utility will automatically resize and crop your uploaded file to fit the dimensions of the paper. If your file print size doesn't match the paper size, choose the first file print size that's larger than the paper size (it's better to reduce images than to enlarge, in general).

For larger same-day/in-store prints - printed on 12x18", 18x24" or 24x36" matte paper (you can trim to your desired size afterward):

  • Select Staples' "Oversized Color Prints" option.
  • On the media tab, select your paper size (select the paper size closest to your final print size). I recommend any of the sizes in the "White Standard HWT" option.
  • UNCHECK the "fit content to paper" option unless the paper size is the same as your desired final print size and you don't intend to trim the paper.

To print larger sizes: 

  • Select Same Day poster option. 
  • Their available sizes are limited - 12x18", 18x24" and 24x36". Your file will automatically be resized and cropped to fit these dimensions. You'll be shown a preview image, so you can decide if this is acceptable.
  • Choose the super heavyweight 140 lb. matte finish option, or the semi-gloss 140 lb. medium sheen option for best results.


PRINTING AT FEDEX KINKO'S STORES (U.S. and Canada customers):

FedEx Kinko's is another great option for fast, same-day prints. 
To print 8x10" or 8.5x11" files at FedEx Kinko's:

  • First upload your file using their print utility on their website
  • Once uploaded, you will probably receive a message stating "this file contains a non-standard print size," so you'll want to click the "review options" button. Select "Letter - 8.5x11" for your print size. This will enlarge the 8x10 image slightly since FedEx automatically prints to fill the page. 
  • Then, continue on to your print options. The only thing you have to do here is select your paper. Under "Paper Selection," choose "Card and Cover Stocks" and then "Ultra Bright White (Card)" for best results. 

To print 11x14" files:

  • Select "Tabloid - 11x17" for the print size. 
  • Select the 80lb. laser paper option (this is the heaviest weight they currently offer in this size).

To print larger sizes (16x20" and above):

  • Select the poster printing option. The available sizes are 16x20, 18x24, 22x28, 24x36, and 36x48. 
  • Again, the software will automatically scale your file to fit the page size. The results are really nice and usually available the same day as you place your order.


Printing at Walgreens (U.S. customers):

Walgreens is a great location for same-day pickup of prints/posters in 11x14, 12x18, 16x20, 20x30 and 24x36 sizes.

  • Their paper texture for posters is a nice satin - not quite matte, but not slippery smooth/gloss either. 
  • Walgreens often has coupons for photo printing, so check the site before purchasing online.
  • Their 8x10 prints also look great, though the only paper option is glossy paper for same-day pickup.


Non-U.S. customers:

If you're a non-U.S. customer located in Canada, UK, Australia or New Zealand and interested in reviewing your local print options, please contact us at contact@iconeclectic.com - we'll do what we can to help you get your project completed.
