Prints Charming

I’m monumentally excited about today’s gift idea. Having worked in an art gallery for five years and always wishing for more wall space to show off my latest find, I was quickly enamored with this brand. Today, ladies and gents, I’m pleased to introduce you to Print Anthology.

Print Anthology Hustle Prints

Print Anthology is an cool print shop that celebrates the beauty and design of the simple poster. All of their posters come in two sizes – 18 x 24 or 24 x 36 – and can be bought framed or unframed. The range of posters is really what’s worth talking about. Owner Rafael Hernandez has carefully curated a classy, modern, sleek and sophisticated lineup of pieces that’ll fit into any office, living space or bedroom with ease. In fact, Hernandez is actually the designer of a few of Print Anthology’s ‘Exclusive’ pieces.

Print Anthology Subway PrintsA fair number of the prints have this stark yet sleek black and white text treatment that instantly lends any space a cool, urban vibe. The ones above actually represent subway stops in major American cities, but you can get similar ones for classic bus routes.

Print Anthology Chemistry Prints

For a twist on this black and white look, check out the vintage eye charts or chemistry prints – the latter of which highlight the molecules for such ingredients as chocolate and caffeine.

WPA Library PrintLooking for something a bit more vintage? Print Anthology also carries a ton of vintage reproductions, all of which are printed on archival paper (like all Print Anthology prints) to ensure lasting quality. I particularly love the Work Projects Administration posters, that have the vibe of old school propaganda posters but surprisingly wholesome messages. Of course, it’s worth going through Print Anthology’s expansive lineup of vintage prints – everything from sepia-tinted graphics of some of the world’s greatest landmarks to charming hand-drawn pictures are available.

Print Anthology PhotographyNaturally, there’s also a pretty huge collection of photo prints. The range is pretty incredible here too – from vintage black & white photos to rustic shots with bright pops of colour, like the two images shown above. As I mentioned earlier, all prints from Print Anthology are available in two sizes. The smaller size will set you back $59.99 unframed (plus $11.95 flat rate shipping) or $139.99 framed (plus $39.95 shipping, additional framed pictures are $19.95 each). Meanwhile the bigger size is $79.99 unframed ($17.95 shipping, flat rate) and $179.99 (plus $57.95 for your first picture, $39.95 for each extra one). Honestly, those are really good rates – both for the framing AND the shipping, although if you’ve got a good framing resources in your area, then go for the unframed as you’ll be able to stock up and minimize your shipping costs.

Print Anthology Abstract PrintFor something totally different, we’ve got a lineup of abstract prints as well. So what makes Print Anthology so special? For me it’s really about the collection of prints that have been carefully selected. They come in a range of distinctive styles (some of which I haven’t even touched on in this post) yet they somehow all feel like they could live in the same space. In other words, if even one of the prints I highlighted here speaks to you in some way, chances are you’ll find a dozen or more covetable pieces for your walls.
