Pro-tip! How do I know what size print to order?

Written By Bianca Bouwmeeser Neumann On 8 Mar 2019

One of our most frequently asked questions is: “How do I know what size print to order?’”

It can be hard to imagine how an image will look on your wall, so this little tip will help you visualize your print size before you place your order. This works well with all prints, including canvas prints and framed or mounted prints.

 

The first step is to choose the wall or shelf that you want your wall art to be featured on. This helps to get a feel for where it would have the most impact.

Next, grab some newspapers and scissors to create a ‘mock’ art piece with your newspapers. Depending on the size of the space you might need to cut your paper up to make it smaller or if you have more wall space, add some more newspaper to make your mock up bigger. 

Ordering the correct sized print

Stick the newspaper mock up on the wall and look at it from all angles of the room. Pay attention to how the print size fits in with the rest of the décor. It’s also important to consider how it compliments the functionality of the room.

This will give you a good idea of how your wall art will look on the wall. You might find that the size you initially had in mind just wouldn’t do your art justice.

If you are planning on ordering from our gallery products (like Faceblocks or Big 1’s), simply cut sheets to the print size, and arrange in whatever grid you feel would work for the space.

Once you are happy with the print size of your mock up, carefully measure the size of your newspaper. This will be the dimensions to use when ordering to ensure you are ordering the correct sized print.

When ordering your print, just choose “custom size”. Our system will tell you the price based on the print size you enter. 

To see pricing for all our products, you can use our Price List page to see custom pricing across all our products.

Now that you know the print size you want, placing your order online at www.printwild.co.za is quick and easy. All you need to do is sit back and wait for the delivery of your stunning bespoke PrintWild print!

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
