I am so excited to say that I finally experimented with the engineering prints from Staples. In a word AWESOME!!!! Seriously the possibilities are endless! For those that are not aware, if you ever want to make a huge picture enlargement for cheap go to Staples.com, then go to engineering prints and download the photo you want to enlarge. They have three sizes to choose from 18x24 for $1.79, 24x36 $3.59, or 36x48 for $7.29. The quality isn't perfect, but I like the not perfectness of it. I already have a project I want to do using the engineering prints in the kids rooms, more on that later. The project I did yesterday was enlarging a picture I had taken of a horse down the road from us. I wasn't sure what size to get, so I ordered all three. The 36x48 is huge. I was hoping to use that one, but it was too large for above the mantel, so I went with the 24x36. I had to cut it down some to fit in the frame I have, but here it is.
Again I know I need a camera, but my Iphone will have to do for now.
So I love it. It is my favorite piece for the mantel to date.
