Do you ever reflect on how difficult it is to find a really good service to develop and enlarge your own photos? That was what occurred to Erik Planander when he wanted to turn his wedding photo into an art print that would fit into his living room.

After a wonderful wedding in Tuscany, Erik had a lifelong memory that he wanted to put up on his wall. The poster wall in the living room was almost complete and a personal motif would be perfect!

A few things were important for the artwork to fit in:

  • The colors had to fit with the rest of the poster wall and the interior decor
  • The print would need to have a border or passepartout around the image, as well as a stylish text to complement the photo
  • The poster needed to have the same paper quality as professional art prints – matte, sturdy premium paper

This was easier said than done!

After looking around for several days, Erik came to the conclusion that he would have to design the print himself. With the help of Photoshop, Youtube and lots of time, he created a design that was printed in 50×70 cm. When family and friends came to visit they quickly gathered around the wall art – the poster looked like a professional print but it was a personal image!

But should it really be so difficult to create your own photo art? And since Erik did this design by himself, he could only imagine how beautiful it would look like with the help from someone really experienced in photo editing and design!

That’s when the idea was born. And Wallpoet was founded shortly thereafter.
