A few days ago, I stumbled upon a hilariously awesome website called Sharp Shirter. They sell quirky artwork and home decor. I knew I just had to get something that they sell so I spoke with someone there and they agreed to send us a free print to review! We were given the choice of any print in their shop but I just couldn’t decide so I sent them 3 choices and told them to surprise me.
They ended up sending me the Pug Gnome art print and oh my goodness, I love it! The 18 inch by 24 inch print came rolled in a tube with a layer of kraft paper rolled with it to protect the print. It took about 3 days for the package to arrive.
When I opened the tube (which was a bit difficult and I may have used my teeth – oops!) and unrolled the print, I was very happy with the quality. The colors are vibrant and the print quality is very good. The paper stock Sharp Shirter uses is great as well.
I ended up framing Mr. Pug Gnome in a cheap 18×24 poster frame from Target. It was about $8 and I don’t really recommend that one. It’s one with removable sides. You have to line up the poster, cardboard backing, and plastic front perfectly and then put on the sides. The sides are really tight and it’s hard to tell which side is the front. It was easy to hang but hard to put together. I would recommend something more like this one on Amazon.
I had family over a few days after hanging up the Pug Gnome print and when my sister-in-law saw it, she literally squealed with excitement over how awesome it is! She asked where we got it and immediately bookmarked the website. She also mentioned how she had been wanting more “grown-up” decor without sacrificing a fun vibe. I agree and I think that Sharp Shirter art prints meet that need very well!
My only complaint and it’s a very minor one is that the artwork goes a little too close to the edges and that makes it hard to frame. However, I do think part of that is that I chose a very cheap frame that covers about 1/2-3/4 of an inch all the way around the print. Aside from that, I love my Pug Gnome!
