Looking for ideas on how to decorate a baby room? And are you a glowing, expectant mama unable to contain the urge to click on hundreds of pins on how to feather a newborn baby’s nest? Or maybe you’re the excited soon to be aunt that cannot wait to help set up an adorable new infant room?
Whatever your reason for exploring the super cute world of baby accessories, consider including inexpensive and simple wall art. Dozens of nursery décor printables are available for download on blogs and on sites like Etsy.
Have you ever used printables? If not, prepare for the ultimate thrill in online shopping—instant gratification. Buying printables is so easy and you don’t have to wait for the item to be shipped. Receiving a printable download means that the files are either emailed or downloaded to the customer immediately. The files exist as a link or attachment. The image is opened once the link is clicked.
How Printables Work
Sounds simple, right? Printables are super easy to use and most files include various sizes. So, say you buy a cute sailboat printable suitable for a baby boy’s room. The file containing the sailboat image will be available to print in various sizes ready for framing. So, it’s likely that a printable you buy will have a link for a 5×7 inch size, an 8×10 inch size, an A4 size (which is similar to an 8X10) and maybe a 4×6 inch size.
Because we have babies on the brain today, here is an actual listing for a nursery decor printable with a sailboat:
Use a Professional Printer
Most printable artists will recommend that the image files be printed via a professional printer. Printable art that you buy over the internet can be printed to home printers. However, the quality is better from a professional outlet. Simply save the printable files to a thumb drive and deliver to a printer (even a drugstore photo printer) or email the files to an online print shop like Mpix or Pro DPI.
Let’s get back to choosing the sweetest nursery décor printables. Finding just the right images with the desired colors can take some time. Free printables are often available on blogs and are often viewed as gifts for viewing a particular post. Lots of printables are for sale on sites like Etsy, with nursery décor printables widely represented.
Switch It Up
Listen, printables are inexpensive. They can be a no-brainer way to accessorize either the fanciest or the most minimal space. And, because the files are either free or quite cheap, it’s easy to grab several and change up the wall art now and then.
For instance, when thinking about the nursery décor printables, find a printable that welcomes a new baby. This could be used at a baby shower and in the nursery for the first few weeks after the baby is born. Then, swap out the welcome home art with something more permanent and you can even use the same frame. See, using printables IS super easy!
Admittedly, we’re biased about printables because we sell them in our Etsy shop. In fact, we’ll go ahead and shamelessly plug one of our creations by showing this listing for a Welcome Home Baby printable:
