Our milestone age statement photographic print is a cool way to adapt your favourite photograph and create a stunning gift to celebrate a 40th birthday. Bring your wall art game up to boss level with this clever and beautiful combination of your favourite photographs and a typographic statement of your creation.
We've been yearning for a long time for a brilliant, creative, and clever way to display our favourite family pictures and inject some gorgeous design and humour too - and this is it.
We start with your photographs - either one, four, nine, 16 or 25, you choose - and we digitally create a collage to use as the background layer for your print. We make all your images black and white to make the perfect backdrop for your colourful text layer. We print your collage of images out first on our giclee printer and pop it to one side to dry and settle fully.
Then we need your text. You can have anything you like and in any colour, but keeping it to one or two sentences will have the most impact. This is where the magic happens. We use our UV flatbed printer for the second part of the printing process and lay the text down over your photographic background. Doing this gives a very textured and thick feel to the print - it's almost as if it's been screen printed.
We've added a colour chart for the text for ease of choosing, but feel free to get in touch to ask about any other colour at all.
Oh, this bit is important! Obviously, because the ink of the text is bold and thick, it will obscure parts of the images beneath it. This is very much an intentional part of the design which I'm sure you can appreciate, we just felt it was worth pointing out. For the most part, you'll be using images that have been seen and loved before, so they really are there as a backdrop, the text is the star of the print.
When you have placed your order you just need to email your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most images are suitable, especially ones taken on your phone, but attach the actual images to the email, not a screen shot of the images - if you need any advice on doing that then just call us.
