Rolled Poster Print from UPrinting {Review & Giveaway}

digital room logo{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

My husband and I change our minds a lot when it comes to decorating our home. Ask him, and he'll put all the blame solely on me, but he's a part of the decisions, too. Or, at the very least, after being married to me for this many years, he should know how to help tone down my ideas a little bit sometimes.

Over the time that we have lived in this house, we have had a variety of art on our walls. We started by picking up a piece or two randomly in stores when it caught our eye and looked like it might match our decor. Then, we added to it with some of my homemade additions, fabric pieces or paintings that, at the time, I was happy with.

At the stage we are at now, we only buy art at local Art Fairs, if it is something we definitely love. Because, really? Everything has slowly been replaced with photographs. How can art, even really great art, complete with pictures of our family and our beautiful daughters?

(Borders added to represent the mat and frame that we had done)

A few months ago, I was very fortunate to win a giveaway from UPrinting.com for an 18" x 24" print. I not only loved how simple the process to upload and order my print was, but the results were fantastic and were done amazingly fast. My brother had come over to take some family portraits and this one was my absolute favorite. After adding the mat and frame, it now hangs in the first hallway you walk through after entering our house and we always get all kinds of comments and compliments on it when people come over.

I really don't think there is anything better than enlarged photographs. There is something about having a large picture, whether it be candid or posed, family or nature, that makes people stop and smile. But where do you go to have them done?

The answer is DigitalRoom.com. Committed to providing a high quality printing experience at affordable prices, Digital Room covers all of your digital printing needs. Need some posters printed? Digital Room does that. How about greeting cards? Yes, they do that, too. Calendars, stickers or postcards? Those, plus more. I can't imagine growing tired of the family picture that I have up on my wall, but if years down the road I want to replace it with an updated one, I'll head to DigitalRoom.com for a fast, easy and affordable piece of art that can't be beat.

One lucky person will win (1) 18" x 24" rolled poster print of their own! The sponsor of this giveaway, DigitalRoom.com, is even throwing in FREE UPS Ground Shipping so you don't have to pay a dime to have this delivered right to your door!

That family picture is GORGEOUS. I'm so impressed that you are all looking up at the camera at the same time! How old are your girls again? They look about the same age as our two. :)

If I won, I think I'd choose a family portrait like you did. I'm hoping to have someone take some family photos later this fall (perhaps in October or November?). Is your brother a professional photographer?

I would use this for a picture of my 3 sons. I don't have any recent ones of them and it sounds like a perfect idea!

I would love to have a print of my boys at the beach! I am horrible about putting photos on the wall and have been dying to get a few black and whites of the boys up in the hallway outside of the bedrooms upstairs. This would be perfect! :)

Momma Such said...

My favorite picture at the moment is actually a picture that I took just recently of the boys at the beach.

Also, as silly as it may sound I love to take pics of my little guys feet! So cute! :)
