*I have partnered with Jibe Prints and received product in exchange for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own.
Hey there friends! Thank you so much for returning for another visit. I truly appreciate you all! One thing I love about blogging is introducing new products and shops. Since decorating is one of my favorite hobbies, change is constant, and doing it on a budget is a must 😉 I was recently introduced to Jibe Prints, and oh my gosh, what a fun, affordable place to shop! I am thrilled to be debuting my personalized print to you all today.
One area in home decor that has become increasingly popular is word signs. Hand made signs can be pretty pricey, especially depending on what size you choose. Jibe Prints, when added to a frame, or backing of your choice, instantly become a gorgeous statement piece at a fraction of the cost. And you can choose to create a bigger piece just by matting around the print in a larger frame. What an amazing contribution to an open space or gallery wall <3
When I ventured to their site, I was so impressed with the gallery of choices. I have never had a sign with our name, so it was fun being able to receive something customized just for our home. I ultimately chose a print that was already designed and just had our last name added, but you can custom order a complete design of your own!
I love the soft look of the print and the fact that you get to choose how to showcase it. Sometimes, I fall in love with a word sign, but don’t love how it’s encased. Jibe Prints all come unframed and printed on glossy poster stock. You can choose between a vintage or more contemporary look, and of course the size that fits your needs. This past summer, I chalk painted a few vintage frames. This print was the perfect fit for one of those re-purposed beauties. I purchased a double mat board from Michaels, and now this print looks as if I spent a pretty penny doesn’t it? You can find old frames at garage sales, thrift shops, auctions, your mom’s basement 😉 Even purchasing a cheaper frame at a retail store and painting and distressing it will give a more expensive look. With Jibe Prints being so affordable, a new addition to your wall doesn’t need saved for later anymore 🙂
I thought I knew where I wanted to display it, but after framing it, I remembered this spot by the mantle. So, what do you think? On the piano or by the mantle? I am leaning towards by the mantle, because the piano top is in constant rotation with the seasons, and this is an easy everyday piece. Sorry, the sun was bright, so the print looks a bit washed out in these shots.
With the holidays quickly approaching, this is a great idea for a gift! I instantly thought of what a perfect wedding or anniversary gift these would make! I hope you will all check out www.jibeprints.com and while you’re there, click on the tab FREEBIES! Right now they have an adorable “hello fall” printable and some fun “Thanksgiving” cards that will bring character to your feasting tables this year 😀
