Flickr launched a new product today that aims to bring more photos out of digital screens and onto physical walls. It’s called Flickr Wall Art: users can now turn their photographs into wall-ready art pieces for home decor (or for use as gifts).
The company’s goal was to make the creation process as easy as possible. It’s completely integrated into Flickr accounts, so as long as you’re logged in, the process could take as little as two clicks to complete.
The art pieces are created using museum-caliber materials and professional US-based printing.
There will be two styles offered initially: Photo Mounts, which feature pictures printed on Fujicolor archive paper and mounted to 1-inch black mounting board with wood textured edges, and Canvas Wraps, which use canvas and wood frames.
Sizes range from 8×10 on the smallest end up to 20×30 on the largest. Prices start at $49 for an 8×10 canvas and $59 for an 8×10 photo mount and go up to $149 for a 20×30 canvas and $179 for a 20×30 photo mount. The product is currently available to customers based in the United States.
The Wall Art service is now being rolled out to Flickr users and will appear as a Wall Art icon in the Share Menu for any of your photos. You can also create them directly through the Flickr photo products page.
