The decision is made...

My sister finally decided which sign she liked best.  I saved the JPEG file on my flash drive to take to a local print shop.  Since I sold another canvas painting, I had to go to Hobby Lobby for an 8x10 canvas.  Walgreen is right across the street, so I decided to try there.  Here's the recap:

Step 1: Save JPEG to a flash drive.

Step 2:  Go the the printing kiosk and insert flash drive. If you aren't sure how to do it, they have great customer service.  I chose the 8x10 but was a little disappointed I couldn't choose matte finish.  I could only do glossy.

Step 3:  Wait 5 minutes (LOL) - How convenient is that?!

Step 4:  Pay.  I know this isn't the best price in town, but the location was convenient.

Step 5: Choose a frame. I had some frames on hand from so other projects.  You can find decent ones at the Dollar Store sometimes, but the last ones I purchased were awful....lots of chips and unusable.  Ugh.

Here are some good ones:

 Your local discount stores or craft stores have them as well.

Step 6:  Display the final project (and then wrap for sister!) BTW, the glossy finish worked out great!

Thank you for visiting with me!  Please visit my stores to the right!
