debbiecarlos' Shop Policies
Welcome to my shop!
I was born in Los Angeles, moved to Manila and I now divide my time between Chicago, Illinois & Lansing, MI. I first studied psychology at Clark University and then went on to get a degree in photography from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
About the black and white posters:
I have always loved the Eames mantra of “Create the best for the most for the least.” Good, beautiful things should be available to everyone. During my time in art school, I began to use the plotters in the architecture department to make quick, large, and affordable prints for class. I loved the rough and textural aesthetic of the black-and-white, half-tone images. Reappropriating for fine art a printing method usually reserved for architectural drawings allowed me to produce striking pieces that were casual, but also bold.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the things that I've made.

FRAMING / HANGING TIPS :
Many people have asked me how they should frame and hang the posters. At home, I hang the posters from binder clips or bulldog clips. I think its kind of utilitarian and cool. But if you want to go with traditional framing, WholesalePosterFrames.com provide affordable and simple custom frames for art of any size up to 60" on the longest side! Just plug in your dimensions and they will send you everything you need to put together a frame for your poster.
I've found another good way of hanging large prints is with small magnets. You just put four nails into the wall where the four corners of the poster would be and then stick the poster to the nails with small magnets. It looks really nice and seamless and as if it is floating off the wall a little.
