Mama Bird Art Print
A mama bird with her common kingfisher friend.
I am very drawn to the Art Nouveau style, because it combines my favotire things: interesting people, florals in multiple styles, animals, and patterns. However, as I looked through countless examples there was a very common theme: In addition to the often muted color palette you will really only see thin, cis, white women. So I decided to put a Modern Twist on this Vintage style with more diverse people and bolder colors.
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.
