Houseplant Series: Watermelon Peperomia
Peperomia remind me of the field of satellites looking for extra terrestrials in the movie, "Contact". Where's Jodi Foster when you need her? I I know, it's an odd association, but my imagination runs amok sometimes.
The houseplant series was so fun to create! I spent many hours searching for gorgeous pots to draw, and paired them with interesting plants. While I am getting better at keeping my own plants alive, the illustrated ones need a lot less water.
The perfect print for a plant lover - both green and black thumbs are welcome. Pair with another print in the series to make a gallery wall nursery.
Text on Print: "Watermelon Peperomia"
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.
