My New Gallery Direct Art!!

I love Gallery Direct! I have been a "blog ambassador" for Gallery Direct for several months now, and I have covered the spectrum of landscape art, custom-photo, etc. While deciding what to get for my December review, I suddenly thought about getting some "Inspiration art" (Scripture verses with matching backgrounds) for our home. We used to design this type of thing with Print Shop or other program, and then print off an 8 1/2 x 11, frame it, and hang it on the wall. Gallery Direct offers so much more variation, not to mention a much more professional looking print! So, I designed a jpg file with my favorite Bible verse-Gal. 2:20-and a cross background. I wasn't sure how good the quality would be, but with the Gallery Direct upload feature, it will alert you if the picture isn't high enough resolution. After ordering the print on aluminum, I was anxious to get it in and see how it turned out. As always, Gallery Direct had my order ready and shipped very soon, and within a short amount of time, the package arrived at the door. I have become accustomed to the super-thorough packaging GD uses, but this time the print was triple wrapped/protected! After finally unwrapping all the layers, I was able to see my print. And it looks absolutely beautiful! Here is an up-close shot of how it looks.

After hanging it on my wall, I was very pleased with how many comments and compliments I got. The first person who walked in and saw it asked "Where did you find something like that?!". Another one commented on how nice the aluminum looks, and sets off the message in the picture.

So if you're looking for a way to brighten up or decorate your home, check out Gallery Direct! They're running an end-of-the-year special through Monday, where you will receive 33% off, and free shipping!
