I’m so excited to introduce Poster Store onto my blog today! I absolutely love prints and posters so I was very happy when they approached me for a blog post ✨ Especially as they sell sustainable prints & posters which I love.
Who is Poster Store?
Poster Store is a new, fast-growing Swedish company that was created by 2 brothers, Oskar and Tobias Renlund. They specialise in high-quality and sustainable wall art which is printed on ecological paper! You can find posters, prints and frames with Scandinavian designs. They have a wide variety of collections so there is something for everyone – in fact, a new collection is released every Tuesday.
How are they sustainable?
It is so important to me that places I buy from are sustainable and they are trying to do something for the planet. Poster Store has a goal to minimize its environmental impact in production and to be at a high standard of sustainability in the long run.
All prints are certified by:
- Field Stewardship Council (FSC)
- Nordic Swan Ecolabel
- International environment guidelines ISO 14001
For those who don’t know, these certificates mean that the wood used comes from responsibly managed forests. As well as this, they meet the highest environmental and social standards.
On top of these points, Poster Store reduces their transportation and choose smart logistics. This helps reduce their carbon footprint which in turn, means that you and I will receive sustainable prints!
The sustainable prints I went for:
The prints I selected were from the following ranges:
- Nature & Botanical
- Maps & Cities
- Typography and Quote
All the prints I chose, are for my bedroom. As I am currently at home for the summer, I have put them up but I’ll definitely be taking some back to uni with me – I’ll show you on Instagram when I move in!
Nature & Botanical prints
I decided to go with these 2 prints because I’m currently really into identifying birds, plants and wildflowers. I’m definitely going to take these prints back to uni with me because as you know, I study Environmental Science so they will be super useful! One of my flatmates is also interested in ID, so I’m sure they will be very handy to refer to after wildlife walks.
I got these two posters in A4 (21x30cm) because I want to be able to read them well, as well I decided to buy two A4 (21x30cm) black wood frames to put them in. They were much easier to assemble than I was imagining. I have never put frames up myself before, but it was very simple. One thing I did struggle with, was actually putting them on the wall. So, I got my dad to help me.
Poster Store is amazing for frames and posters as they are all so affordable and with such beautiful designs, which is perfect for a student like me! I especially like that on the website, there are photos of them paired with some of their other prints – who needs Pinterest when you have Poster Store for interior inspiration?!
These were the last two prints that I got from the nature & botanical collection. I went with these two because I loved how simple they looked and thought that they could add a peaceful effect. The sizing is 13x18cm and I thought they would be perfect together.
Maps & Cities posters
Apologies for the quality, it’s hard to take photos of prints/posters in frames.
The next poster I chose was a wildlife world map because I adore animals! It’s probably meant for kids, but I loved it too much to not have it. This was one of the first posters I saw so it went straight into my basket.
The size I got for this poster is 30x40cm, as well as the frame. I chose the silver frame as I thought wanted to have a mix of frame colours. My wallpaper, which you can kind of see in the reflection, is black with purple and silver flowers so I thought it would compliment my room well.
Typography & Quote prints
One thing that I love having in my room are quotes. I particularly like little reminders, as well as ones that make me feel good about myself.
I chose this print because it was something that really got me through depression. I’ve spoken about it before in my bullet journal layouts, but I’ll explain it in short. When I was having a really hard time with depression, I made a page in my bullet journal called Everyday Sparkles. The idea was for me to come up with one thing to look forward to every day. It could have been literally anything, for example, the radio show I enjoyed, a new episode, seeing a family member etc. This print reminds me of that but to also enjoy & celebrate the small things that I have achieved. The size is A4 (21x30cm).
Another one of the sustainable prints from the typography & quotes collection was the hygge poster. I first started reading about what hygge was in January and since then I have become very interested in it! My brother got me the hygge conversation game for my birthday which I played with my flatmates so many times. It’s sort of another reminder to enjoy the little things. The sizing and frame are the same as the wildlife world map.
The final print in this collection is the black one below. I couldn’t resist buying this one as a fun but meaningful reminder!
The last poster that I bought is the cat one. As I’m sure you know, I love cats and have two myself – Monty and Percy. This was another poster that I couldn’t resist and I’m going to add it to my wall at uni. Like the prints surrounding it, it’s 13x18cm
