One of the things that sets Papica Photography apart from other professional portrait photographers is my product line. While some photographers only provide a digital collection, I am a big believer in the importance of high-quality printed photos so you can have tangible memories that become part of your family’s legacy. (If you’d like to learn more about why having professionally printed photos is so important, be sure to check out last month’s blog post, where we dive into all the details about printed vs. digital photos.)
Tangible memories go beyond simple prints though. From wall art to albums, there are a myriad of ways to showcase your family photos and share them with the people you love most. I get so many questions from clients about the wall art included in my photography packages, from “What exactly is wall art?” to “How do I get more?!” so today I wanted to do a quick product highlight focusing on wall art. In this post, you’ll get all your questions answered as we go into more detail about what wall art is and what makes it special.
What Wall Art Is and Is Not
Sometimes, it’s easiest to explain a product in terms of what it isn’t. Many people assume that wall art is just a single print that needs to be framed. But wall art is more than just a print. It’s the complete finished product, ready for display and designed to be hung pride of place on the walls of your home—with no need for you to go frame shopping.
Why Wall Art?
There are many options for displaying your photos, but wall art is one of my personal favorites. Here’s what makes wall art through Papica Photography so special:
Your family’s memories are made to last, and to be passed down from one generation to the next. Because your wall art is a reflection and a tangible reminder of those memories, it needs to be made to last too. I’m proud to partner with the very best printers and craftspeople to ensure that the wall art included in my photography packages is heirloom quality and can be enjoyed by your children and grandchildren for years to come.
Your wall art is printed on archival quality photographic paper with a layer of lamination for added durability. This makes your wall art similar to canvas but with a smoother texture, and makes it much more durable (i.e. you can’t rip it like canvas).
My printed products also come with a lifetime no-fade guarantee. My professional quality printer backs the quality of their products, which are guaranteed not to fade for 100 years. So, not only will your photo be printed in rich, true colors, that beauty and accuracy will last much longer than would be possible with most printing options.
Elegant and Unique Options
Depending on the style of your home and your own personal preference, you may or may not want your wall art to be framed. If frames aren’t your thing or you prefer a cleaner, more minimalist look, prints are another beautiful wall art option! With this product, your photo will be mounted on a sturdy 1-inch thick with white MDF backing, wood-textured edging, and your choice of black, white, or maple trim.
A beautiful appearance doesn’t mean it’s going to be complicated to install, by the way! My wall art products can be secured to the wall with simple nails or command strips, so they’re easy to put up wherever you want them.
What If You Want More?
Once you experience the beauty of wall art in your home, you may want more than what’s included in your chosen photography package. That is totally fine! You can always order additional wall art on top of what’s already included in your package. You’ll also receive a digital gallery (usually 50 to 75 professionally edited images). We’ll create your wall art from your favorite image, but you will have all those digital files in case you want more wall art or prints at some point down the line.
Ways to Use Your Wall Art
Of course, you’ll want the beautiful images from your session to grace the walls of your own home. As these memories are displayed, over the years they become part of your family’s legacy and are woven into your own and your children’s memories. This is one of the reasons it’s so important to invest in professional photography, printing, and wall art!
In addition, print wraps and other wall art options also make perfect gifts for grandparents and other relatives. Or, if you’re shopping for expecting parents, a photography package, complete with wall art, makes the very best baby shower surprise! These sorts of personal, meaningful gifts are the kind recipients will truly cherish forever.
Wall art is one of the best ways to preserve and share your memories—which is why I include it in many of my packages. (All of my packages come with some form of physical artwork, be it wall art or album, so that you can have the benefit of memories you can hold and touch.) If you are ready to book your session, need help choosing the right package, or simply want to chat for a bit and ask some questions, please feel free to get in touch. I am always happy to help!
