Instead of buying a physical art print, you purchase a digital file of the artwork that is received immediately once payment is confirmed. You are then able to conveniently print at home and display it in your beloved space in a short amount of time. No courier costs and no time waiting for your artwork to arrive - it's a win-win!

Once you have purchased your digital file(s), you will receive an email with the art file in a .zip folder. This is your printable, ready for printing and waiting to be added to your wall art.

Some Tips

* Print on an A4 page - Despite the sizes of the art being smaller in size, print on an A4 page. Frames can vary and that way you can trim your art accordingly, and it is easier to find A4 card stock in stationery stores compared to other sizes.

* Use white cardstock - For good quality results, print on matte, white cardstock and not on regular printer paper. It will give your art work a high quality finish that will not damage easily.

* Print the size advised - It would not be advisable to print these printables other than the sizes indicated in their product descriptions as it may compromise the printing quality. You are more than welcome to test printing in smaller sizes by scaling the printable, to an A5 size, for example, but would not suggest to print bigger than the sizing indicated.

* Colour variation - Printed colours may differ slightly compared to your computer screen. 

Hope you love displaying your Carlita Hearts in your home!
