Caravan Backdrops are Tops Yo!
Between Facebook and Instagram I’m getting bombarded with the same questions about the Caravan Shoppe backdrops and huge chalkboard prints I’ve been obsessed with using a bunch lately.
I know I mentioned these great prints quickly in my last favorite things post, but I wanted to show you how I REALLY use them, and talk about the best way to print them, photograph with them, pricing etc…
K, so first things first, ALL of these prints are available FOR DOWNLOAD at the Caravan Shoppe. In fact, everything on their site is downloadable… so you won’t find any finished, shipped-to-your-door products there. I think that’s what a lot of you have been a bit confused about.
After you pick what you want from the Caravan Shoppe and pay for it, you will receive a zipped file via email that contains a printable PDF of the artwork that you have purchased; along with detailed instructions. It’s then yours for life and you can print and reprint it as much as you want! (just be sure not to sell or use the prints to make any profit for yourself, mkay?).
I snapped this quick picture below of my “super professional studio”, so you could see how incredibly simple they were to use. Just a little duct tape on each end and you can stick those bad boys anywhere!
SIDE NOTE: I found that a small amount of duct tape, or Gorilla Glue tape works best on stucco, brick, wood and cement. The hold is MUCH stronger, and when I’m done, I just fold over the tape onto the print, and leave it. It’s such a small piece, that I don’t even worry about taking it off and ripping the paper. When I need to hang it again, I just put tape over the last spot. For hanging prints indoors on more delicate surfaces, I use painters tape usually.
Using Snapseed (you can read a little more about the Snapseed app here) to rotate, lighten and crop the image a bit, I got exactly wanted!
