What To Do With Your Kids Art

No brother this is how you do it

That’s a great question isn’t it?

I often hang masterpieces on the fridge for a period of time and then I circular file them. I mean seriously I can not possibly keep every lovely piece of art they create. I am too interested in shedding “stuff.” Still they are lovely and worth keeping it is just not realistic for me.

I have heard of a few different ideas, on what to do with kids art. One person suggested taking a photo of their creation to have forever. This idea also takes up minimal space.

Rainy day art work

I really like that idea, but why not take it one step further? Use your children’s art work for things you need or use anyway. Like return address labels, invitations, or holiday cards.

That is what we did for the thank you cards for K1’s birthday.

Through Print Art Kids we made thank you cards out of her own art work. For this project I selected the post card option. Being that she is only 3 she is not yet ready to write out thank you’s, and this was a great way to go! It made the thank you cards really come from her.

With the post card option I was also able to add two small photo’s on the written side of the card. Which personalized them even further. I found these to be a superior option to the store bought packs of thank you’s.

I love that everything comes from Print Art Kids printed on recycled paper. I really enjoy when companies try to be part of the solution, and make better choices. They also happen to be a mom run business in the US. I prefer to support other mom’s, and I also try to buy local or made in the US when possible. You can see how Print Art Kids really hit all my happy buttons.

The website is also very easy to use. Something I will note, there is not a photo editor, so be sure that the image you plan on uploading looks the way you would like it to before you get started. You can also load several photos and switch them in and out until you find the best combination for you purpose. I also liked that there were different font options. Really every aspect was personalized. I felt the the representation on screen was identical to what I received in person. There were no surprises, the product lived up to my expectation.

The cards arrived in just about 2 weeks from when I ordered them. Considering every order is a custom order that is great. They also took the time to contact me and review my uploaded photos as a few of them we questionable. I appreciate them taking the extra time to ensure everything was satisfactory. They even arrived all tied up in a pretty bow! You know it’s the little things really. The quality of both the cards and printing were great. I had an awesome overall experience and will use them again in the future.
They have notepads, notebooks, holiday cards, note cards, postcards, invitations, thank-you notes, return address labels, and gift labels available. I am most interested in the return address labels, we use those a lot. I might also add an order for a notepad to send to work with daddy. Then he can have something to smile about each time he takes a mindless note.
