Four fun printing ideas to bring out your inner designer

Have you ever found décor inspiration from a Pinterest board but you weren’t sure how to make your vision work?

There are myriads of ways you can create and design accessories for décor and gifting by using a printing service.

You can create wall art as well as cushions for your couch with catchy phrasesand graphics. Or you can show off with coffee mugs with quirky sayings on the front when friends and family come over for a cup of joe.

No matter what your ideas are, you can make your visions become reality with these four fun and creative printing ideas.

1) Personalised gifts

Personalised gifts can be more sentimental than a store-bought present. If you find it difficult to find the perfect gift for your loved one in the stores, perhaps creating something of your own design could work.

Some people love personalised items such as:

  • Pens
  • Mugs
  • Pillowcases
  • Bags

Design a graphic image that reminds you of someone and couple it with their name. Use any print services in and around your area to print the design onto your item.

Once done, you can wrap a pretty bow around it and give it to your loved one as a present.

 2) Wall hangers for your living room

A living room should have a cozy ambiance and to create this vibe you need the proper décor. Wall hangers are the best ways to capture light and add an illusion of space in small rooms.

Design a graphic image with the same elements and colors your living room has. You can have your design printed on canvas or photo posters. The best designs to opt for are:

  • Abstract art in bold colors
  • Contemporary art
  • Images of animals
  • Splash art

 3) Band T-shirt Block Quilt

Have you ever wanted to create a t-shirt quilt using your favourite band logos but you could never find shirts with the designs you wanted?

Now you can buy shirts in bulk and download all sorts of designs of your favorite band logos and get them printed onto the shirt fabric.

Cut the designs out of the shirts and sew them together block by block to create your very own unique block quilt. Make sure the logos and images are free on the sites you download them from in case of copyright protection. 

4) Get creative with vinyl

Anyone can be creative; you simply need the inspiration. Look at how furniture shops lay out their living room and bedroom displays for some inspiration on placement and colour. This will help you select the type of art that will complement your living space.

Vinyl is another excellent substance to change a room dramatically in an inexpensive way. You can print different designs on vinyl and then wrap virtually any piece of furniture with this adhesive plastic such as:

  • Bedside tables
  • Headboards
  • Dressing tables
  • Coffee tables
  • Chairs

You can use printing services to create virtually anything you want when it comes to décor, gifts, clothing and accessories. Visit your local printing company to see where your creativity can take you and inspire others to do the same.
