Materials You’ll Need
Glossy photo paper: This one’s shiny and makes the colors pop! If you want something that catches the eye, this is it. This is my preferred choice for wall art.
Heavy cardstock: A sturdy option. It’s thick and won’t easily wrinkle, making it great for framing. This look has a bit more texture.

Ink: Just a heads-up, the quality of ink matters. Use good ink; it’ll make your art look richer and last longer. Trust me, you don’t want colors that fade after a few months!
Frame (Optional): While you can totally tape or pin your art to the wall, framing it gives a polished touch. Choose a frame that complements both the art and your room’s vibe. I prefer an 8×10 frame a 5×7 mat.
How to Print Your Wall Art
Choosing the Right Printer Settings: Okay, before you hit that ‘print’ button, check your printer settings. It makes a big difference.
DPI (dots per inch) settings: Aim for a high DPI, like 300. The higher, the clearer your print will be.
Choosing the right paper type in settings: Make sure to match it to the paper you’re using. So, if you’re using matte paper, select that.
Size Matters: For 5 x 7 prints, print at 100% size. You can of course increase or reduce the size if you have a frame that works!
