Airport Runway Screenprints

Airports are essentially just another means of transportation, but the distance covered and time it takes to travel leaves deeper impressions on people than just a simple car or subway ride. We all have at least one airport that we hold dear to heart one way or another. Whether you have an emotional connection with one, or maybe you’ve got hometown pride for your favorite airport, these Airport Runway Screenprints by Nomo Design will beautifully adorn your wall. Each 18 x 24” print features an international airport’s floorplan screenprinted white on black French Paper Co. paper. Two dollars of every Runway Poster sold goes to the Challenge Air Program, a program that builds self-esteem and confidence of children and youth with specials needs, through the experience of flight.

Owly Shadow Puppets Valentines

What an appropriate valentine, eh? I ran across the work of Andrea Everman the other day, and man-oh-man, are there some gems. Namely, her shadow puppets (shadow puppets!) but also her valentines and a little nightlight that says ‘love you’. Cute, cute, cute. See below for pics and prices.

Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set

If you’re still searching for a Valentine’s Day gift, listen up. Unless you have the time to make something thoughtful (like your own valentine notebook), do not, I repeat, do not, resort to a heart shaped box of chocolates or fluffy teddy bear. It lacks all kinds of imagination and is just plain wrong. You can do better. Perhaps pick out a picture frame, or two, such as this Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set, and choose a few special photos of you and your sweetheart together. Print them out (high quality setting, mind you), write a heartfelt note and call it a day. Unless you’ve a high maintenance significant other, you’re off the hook until next year.

Geometric Animals

Whoa. If you’re not a fan of the taxidermy trend, have I got something to share with you. Bend Seating has trophy heads made of metal. And they’re geometric, engineered from a mathematical formula. And this makes them awesome. Wall art? Heck yeah. Coat hook? Yes please.

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.”
