Fracture Glass Photo Prints

Your photos are meant to be shared and displayed, not stuck on your computer. If you’re having trouble deciding on how to print and frame your photos, Fracture has you covered by combining both processes. A ‘Fracture‘ is a digitally photograph printed directly to glass, providing an archival quality print as well creating a display frame. Upload your photo via the Fracture website and in 48 hours you’ll have a print on your door step, with all hardware included to hang it. Prices range from $8 for a 4 x 6” to  $35 for a 14 x 10”. I’d say that’s a pretty decent price for what you’re getting. Also, you can contact Fracture for custom sizes. I bet a wide panoramic landscape would look killer in this format. The prints are shatter-resistant (they’ll even replace it if it breaks!) and because the artwork is printed beneath the glass, it will never scratch. Visit Fracture for more information.

Fresh Flowers

Give the gift of flowers, freshly printed flowers, that is. Designed by Sandra Bautista, Fresh Flowers is a 32 page newspaper with flowers replacing headlines. It would be a good gift for someone who has an appreciation for art and design, and definitely less tacky than plastic flowers. I personally would forgo the vase and dedicate a place on the wall for these and rotate in a new print every few weeks.

Ixxi Wall Art

If you’re looking for some art —okay not just any art, but big, large-scale art—to put up in a room, this may be your answer. Ixxi is a modular connecting system to piece together printed panels that make up a larger picture. Simply upload your image to their website, choose your final output size, and Ixxi will determine how many panels and “x” and “i” connectors are needed for the artwork. Ixxi is printed on Synaps synethetic paper, a material that is moisture resistant and tear-proof, so rest assured your investment should last you for many years to come. It takes about a minute to load, but it’s well worth it to check out Ixxi’s inspiration gallery. Every other image I saw in there I caught myself saying, “ohh i want that.”

Masterpieces Pattern Sheet

Oh, here’s another overseas item that’s just too interesting to pass up. No worries, though as it is available to buy (also through PayPal, if you like). What is it exactly? A pattern sheet, obviously, that you can use to hammer out a pattern in nails on your wall. Connect the dots with string and remove pattern to see an altogether different “Masterpiece”.

Irregular Mesh

Perhaps you’re a little tired of wall decals, and believe me, I understand, but take just a moment to check out this one by Camila León. It’s just the right size; it would look similar to wallpaper in smaller room (say, a powder room), and on a larger wall it would be more of an art focal point. It’s a limited edition (50-piece), so if you’re into it, you better grab it soonish.
