Guys struggle a bit with trying to find tasteful and proper art once they are over the age of 30. You get a framed picture of your team? It seems a little too young and you feel a little ridiculous when you are hanging it up. What about a Fathead of Tom Brady in your man cave? He might be the greatest of all time but doing that as a grown man will make you look absolutely ridiculous. There aren’t many art options that can display your passion for sports, a city, or a state without making you look like a grown child. So instead you try and get a piece of abstract art and have it hanging in the basement next to your big screen TV. Good luck trying to explain that to your buddy on game day.
Why don’t you try something out that actually looks like art but also displays the passion for your team or city? City Prints is a company that takes maps of college campuses, major cities, stadiums, and then turns them into really tasteful art. We were concerned about the quality of their prints so City Prints was nice enough to send us some prints for free. They knew we were all Kansas City natives and KU Jayhawk fans so they sent us some prints representative of that. We immediately fell in love with the coloring of these prints because they weren’t just some flat matte print but rather brilliant colors that looked really dynamic.
We also know the details of the stadiums that they sent (Memorial Stadium and Allen Fieldhouse) and the maps are detailed to a very fine degree. The coloring and contrast that they do on these make the image immediately identifiable but still done in such a tasteful way that you don’t feel like a little kid when you hang it up on the wall. If you don’t feel like repping your alma mater there are maps of cities or states you can also get. They have sizes from 12 x 12 or get framed options or canvas wraps if you don’t want to mess with it yourself.
We’ve had the chance to speak directly with the founders of this company and they love what they do. They were even nice enough to give frame recommendations for the prints they sent us.
