Kranky Krab Giveaway!



I've never reviewed personalized art before so I was ecstatic to receive an email asking  me to do just that. Logan and Sam share a room, so I knew I couldn't have a print for one and not the other, and thankfully Kranky Krab understood and offered two! Being my first time, I spent over an hour on the site, browsing and playing with different frame and print combinations. You can "build" your art right before your eyes, so you'll know exactly what you're getting. Cool! I finally settled on two and placed my order!
Tracy Hopkins is the genius behind the designs. To create this playful art, she draws everything by hand. Then the illustration is scanned and digitally colored and textured using Illustrator and Photoshop. Her prints are then created using a professional large format printer with archival inks on high quality fine art stock, with some pieces printed directly to canvas. Everything is 100% handmade, including the frames, mats, and magnets. When the prints arrived, I was in awe. I knew I wanted them on the closet doors. That might seem odd to some, but I am trying to help Sam define his space, especially since he is always winding up in Logan's! We bought some Velcro tape to make sure the prints were extra secure. Sam has quite the arm and he can swing the door really hard when his temper flares. He's a work in progress, but aren't we all?
The prints are beautifully done. The frames were put together perfectly and all the corners were seamless. For $25 each, and free shipping, I think it's a great deal! The frame is painted, but it almost seems like a sleek fabric was used to wrap the frame. I think a textured paint was used and it makes it look like a more expensive work of art! The colors really pop and I think the "characters" are lovable and friendly. My kids love them and I do too! Kranky Krab is the perfect place to shop for personalized gifts. Plus, the shipping is free! Check them out! And check me out! I have a giveaway! Kranky Krab is offering a US resident a $25 gift certificate (and free shipping!) to use towards any purchase!
