Next I got some insulation foam as the piece I'd mount the print to. I decided on this because it was really lightweight and could be hung easily in our rental apartment. I cut this down to size based on the size of the photo (keep in mind that you'll need to wrap the edges around like a canvas).
Using Engineering Prints as Beautiful Wall Decor
Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing a project I did a while ago, but one that remains one of my favorite budget wall art ideas! Printing some of our wedding photos as engineering prints :)
(If you aren't familiar with engineering prints, they are black and white, printed on regular paper, and are designed to showcase your line drawings and graphics. These over-sized prints promote high-quality black and white line drawings in a variety of sizes. Engineering prints are ideal for architects and builders.)
The first thing I did was to print some of my favorite wedding photos using the engineering print method. I had mine printed at a local staples.
Then I laid the engineering print face down, spray the piece of foam with adhesive, and laid it carefully down on the print, making sure there were no ripples or wrinkles.
I folded the edges over like a present and then hung them on my wall using double-stick adhesive mounting tape.
Here's one of the final prints...
And the three prints in place!
What do you think? I shared a few additional lessons learned and tips in the original post linked below.
