I’m not a patron of the fine arts and most of the things on my walls are from thrift shops or estate sales. I do, however, love to hang art on the walls that actually means something to me beyond just being pretty when I find it. When I was approached by Erin, the artist behind SandHill Press, about her screen-printed cloth diaper posters I fell in love! In case you didn’t already know, I collect vintage cloth diaper related ephemera (photos, advertisements, articles, even vintage cloth diapers and accessories) and I have some in my laundry room. I was already picturing these hanging in the same room, even though my diaper washing days are just about done for forever. Erin sent me one of each for a review.
There are three different posters available, shown above.
Professionally screen-printed on 100% recycled paper with water-based inks. These prints are sized at 11×14 for easy framing!
My favorites were the two blue versions because I loved the message and also the coloring, very soothing. They all would look darling together over a changing station in a nursery framed and matted! Because these are screenprinted onto a nice, thick paper they look like quality pieces of art rather than something downloaded as a free printable. There is depth and richness to them that wouldn’t be possible from a printer.
I found tiny little hangers by Umbra from Target to hang mine from since I don’t have a lot of real estate for frames in the laundry room, plus I don’t want to add any more holes to my walls because they took forever to paint. The posters do come shipped in a roll so if you want to hang them up without framing you might have to let them sit under some books to flatten them out. I did that but was too impatient so I used a tiny bit of double sided tape on the bottom for now, and will release in a while to see if it is straight. I like it either way, even taped.
If you need these in your life (you do, you need them in your life) SandHill Press has an etsy shop and the posters are on sale for $10.00 each plus shipping!!! If I had a nursery I would do just as she did and hang a pretty cord and have all three pinned up over the changing table for an even cheaper way of displaying them without adding the cost of frames. Or if you have a retail cloth diaper store this is about as perfect as it gets for decorating your space! You might want to decide soon because these are limited and she only has what has been printed. After this she will do a new set of prints, yet to be determined.
There are car decals, fridge magnets, t-shirts, and buttons, but I’ve yet to see cloth diaper art. It makes me a little giddy to see that someone with this much talent used her powers for my favorite cause.
Oh, did I forget to mention I have one to giveaway?! The winner can choose the print of their choice from the three! I would have a very hard time deciding but for a nursery I’d pick “Same Diaper, Different Day” or for a laundry room the “Wash, Dry, Fold.” Enter using the Rafflecopter below, open to US only and ends 3/14.
