When I was a kid, my dad, an architect, would bring home rolls of outdated blue prints, from the office. I used the backside of the blue prints for countless art projects and drawing projects of all kinds. I even used them for art paper in college while getting my art degree, that is until one professor told me to get some "real" art paper! What I love about blue prints or draftmen's paper is the SIZE! So I was excited to find out from my friend Tracy Laverty, (athttp://rightupmy-alley.blogspot.com/ ) that Staples office supply store will print your photos on draftsman's paper for a fraction of the price of a regular photo of similar size. It's such a great and inexpensive way to display the photos you love! I had these prints made recently at Staples for just a few dollars each. Just take your photos in on a disk or thumb drive and they will print them off for you in a matter of minutes! I love these prints I had done at Staples of my children! The draftsman prints come in a few different sizes, are black and white, and are all draftsman print quality paper, which is on the thin side. These prints are a 36 X 24 inch size. In the photo below, I have cut the print to fit a frame. Next time you need a big print for a fun project....check out what Staples has to offer!
