I finished my family room gallery wall about a week ago but I still hadn't found the perfect something to put into a frame with awkward dimensions - 5 3/4 x 11 3/4 - what is that? I contemplated getting a picture enlarged and cropping to fit the frame or framing a piece of patterned paper to compliment my color scheme.....hmmmm......Then while toodling around on Pic Monkey I decided I would make my own very simple typography print!
I knew I wanted a black type on white look so I googled 'white paper' and clicked 'Images' and saved a piece of white 'paper' to my computer. You can use any color background you would like......simply google that color and save the image to your computer.

Next, in Pic Monkey open the white paper file you saved. Here you will resize to fit the dimensions you would like. My funky dimensions in pixels was 431 x 881. If you would like to create a print to fit in an 8 x 10 frame you would want 600 x 750 in pixels. I used this handy calculator to convert my measurement from inches to pixels. Click 'Resize' and enter your dimensions. Be sure to unclick 'keep proportions' and then click 'apply.'
Now you get to enter your text! On the far left hand side click the icon that looks like a 'P', then 'Add Text.' You can play around with your font, color and sizing until you have a look you love. I didn't get into all of the fun features and effects but I did add a little asterick for kicks. You can do the same by clicking the 'Overlays' icon, again located on the far left side. I chose 'Stars' and sized my shape for my print.
Frame, hang and enjoy :)
I'll share my gallery walll later on this week but here's a little sneak-peak!
I hope you enjoy the tutorial!
Have you used Pic Monkey to create your own print? I'm always learning and would love any tips or tricks you've learned!

  9. I hardly leave a response, however i did a few searching and wound up here
    "Simple Typography Print Tutorial". And I actually do have a couple of questions
    for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the
    responses come across as if they are left by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
