Engineer Print Art

Of course I’ve jumped on the engineer print bandwagon. How could I not? It’s brilliant.

I took this picture of Koi fish on my phone and had it printed at an office supply store. Guess what? It was less than $4 to print.

My foam board was 20″x30″ and fell in between print sizes, so I ordered a size up. I laid my board on the print, traced around where I wanted my picture to be, and cut it out.

Then, I used double-sided tape to mount it to the board. Yep, it’s that easy.

This project will take you less than an hour. I think you could really do it in half that time. All together, this project cost about $12.00. Not too bad for over-sized art, right?

I put it in my dining room (a room that has pretty much been un-touched since we moved in). Although I love my candlesticks (all from Goodwill!), I don’t think I like them with the print. I need to do a little re-arranging.

What do you think? I like it even more than I thought I would. I always prefer personal art. When it’s meaningful to you, it makes your house feel special.

  2. I’m excited someone I know tried this! I keep seeing it and wondered if it really turned out that well. And with a phone picture too!
