PR Prints

How did you pick your store(s) name(s)?
(feel free to write up each shop name if they each have a story) *

I've always loved taking pictures, and since I live in an incredibly beautiful and rugged place (Newfoundland, Canada), I have compiled a collection of scenic photography that I wanted to share. Several years ago, I decided to start offering some of my photographs as prints. Not being nearly as creative with naming as I was with the camera, the name I settled on was based on my initials and products - PR Prints.

When I discovered Zazzle, it opened up a whole new world of opportunities to not only do prints, but expand to giftware featuring photographs and other designs, largely based on my photography. However, I decided to keep the name I had already been promoting and just watch it grow.

Mystical Cove Poster -

- I was lucky enough to happen across this scene while hiking out to a bird sanctuary a few hours' drive from my home. The effect of the fog rolling in over the hill and the amazing colours were so breathtaking, I had to get a shot. It's still one of my favorite prints.

Memories of the 80s -

- This one is one of the few not based on a photograph. It's a compilation of my favorite memories from the 1980s - and always brings me back to being a teenager and hanging out with my friends whenever I see it.

- This is a closeup shot of a beautiful, bright pink peony, and has also become one of my best sellers. I just love the frilly texture and the bright, vibrant colours.

Practice Random Kindness - - This mousepad features a scene looking out across the Atlantic Ocean towards a small island discovered along a trail hike. The quote "Practice Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty" is one that touched me many years ago, and I think it's a wonderful message to be shared and treasured in times of chaos and confusion.
