Bear Lake - Rocking Mountain National Park - Estes Park, CO
I lived in CO for about 20 years, and going to Rocky Mountain National Park was one of my favorite activities. There's so much to see, especially when you go during different seasons. One afternoon I went with some friends at the start of fall and all of aspens were just starting to turn yellow. The lake was nearly the exact same vibrant blue as the sky. We could've sat on the shore forever, just laughing our heads off. It was just so peaceful. Bear Lake can be very busy, but we happened to go on a slower day. I still think of these mountains and lake when I want to find a moment of peace and happiness.

Text on Print: "Bear Lake | Estes Park, CO"
Size: 8” x 10” - easy-peasy to find a frame, versatile for most spaces, may even fit in a scrapbook when you don't want it on the wall anymore.
Orientation: Portrait - That's tall one, not the wide one
Paper Content: 100% Cotton Rag, acid free, lignin free (prevents discoloration and fading), and no optical brighteners - Tree-free AND the cotton typically comes from the textile industry.
Thickness/Weight: 285 gsm or 290 gsm - What does that mean? The paper is thick and durable, and would probably jam your home printer. I either print at home or use a giclee printing company - hence the slight difference.
Ink: Pigment-based ink - holds up better in sunny spots and stays colorful longer!
Prints are packaged using:
- Rigid direct mailer envelopes made from 90% post-consumer recycled materials, and they are certified recyclable and naturally biodegradable. Boom.
- Backing Board - Try to use recycled materials when I can
- Plastic sleeve for protection - Sometimes I use non-plastic ones, but I've found they unfortunately aren't as "eco-friendly" as the company implies, and they don't hold up well in heat and moisture.
- Zero-waste shipping labels - both the label AND backing (the thing you peel a fresh sticker off of) are recyclable. We don't always think about the label part when we recycle!
All materials are subject to change based on availability. Don’t worry, I won’t compromise quality.
