home decor hack: cheap quote prints

I’ve had a couple people ask me recently where I’ve gotten certain prints around our house so I figured it was time to let you in on a little secret – most of the time, I make them. The best part? It takes about 5 minutes and costs almost nothing.

I use this website to download fonts, type my quote in a Word document, PDF it and sent to an office supply store to print (for usually under $1!). My go-to frames are the really simple (and usually really cheap) solid color frames from Michael’s and Target.

Now, I’m no designer so I only do this when I’m looking for a quick quote or something like that. For more specialized prints (like Cleveland-specific things, art in my kid’s rooms, maps, etc.), I love purchasing from local small business owners (and have lots of examples of those on Instagram). In some spots, however, this method totally works for me! Here are some examples from around our house:

In my office!

Our wedding song lyrics printed and hung in the hallway. A less than $15 decor item that a lot of people have commented on!

I got this poster-size frame for our playroom for under $20 and printed the quote for under $2!

 So easy right!? Give it a try…the possibilities are endless!
