Eco-Friendly Canvas Prints by UPrinting

*This is a sponsored post for UPrinting.com.

Let’s say you have a new home with naked surfaces in desperate need of some wall art.  You can drop coin on expensive art or splatter some color on a canvas — Jackson Pollock style — or you can turn your best photography or custom digital art into a canvas print with the help of UPrinting.  UPrinting offers canvas printing in two formats, rolled canvas and stretched canvas.

With UPrinting, you can design your canvas print online and have it made in as quick as two business days for rolled canvas or three business days for stretched canvas.

Rolled canvas ships in a tube and can be made in myriad standard and custom sizes.  Stretched canvas mounts on a 1.5″ wood frame in standard sizes from 11″ x 14″ through 24″ x 36″.

UPrinting creates these canvas prints using vegetable or soy-based inks with lower VOCs than traditional petroleum-based inks.  Also, if you wander from the canvas prints section, UPrinting uses only recycled paper, which is made from 55% post-consumer recycled content and a sustainably harvested component for the rest.

Stratum is a Bamboo-Filled Surface Material

So, what do you get when you sandwich a plywood bamboo material called PlyBoo with two sheets of a paper-composite called RichliteStratum, a new surface material made through a venture between Smith & Fong and Richlite Company.  The material was inspired by nature and the majestic basalt cliffs of Palouse Canyon in eastern Washington.

I first noticed the material when the Chad Ludeman mentioned that he was chomping at the bit to put Stratum in play as an upgrade for a new project called reNEWBOLD.

Stratum combines the green benefits of PlyBoo and Richlite so it’s FSC-certified and may contribute towards LEED points.  Richlite is made with FSC-certified fibers, while PlyBoo is made with rapidly renewable bamboo and soy adhesives.  Stratum contains no added urea-formaldehyde.

The material is non off-gassing and heat, scratch, and stain resistant, according to Richlite.  Stratum is available in a 1″ thickness and 48″ x 96″ sheet sizes with any of the ten available Richlite Northwest colors.
