Modern Prints & Printables. Made With Love.

My story starts many moons ago.

Throughout my life, I have had my career take me in different directions. I started out as an actress, then moved to Holland (and stayed for almost 9 years!). I taught myself the language and obtained a teaching degree, which I used upon my return to Canada in 2007.

Art was always something I did for fun and relaxation in my youth and teenage years, but for many years it remained hidden. And I always had a passion for decor - I can honestly say I used to change my room around at least once a month as a child. :)

A few years ago, I was rear-ended while I was stopped at a red-light. I endured years of chronic pain and anxiety. To help pass the time, I began drawing. The drawings turned into requests, and so forth, and so I opened my Etsy shop in 2015. It has been a wonderful form of therapy for me, and I am SO grateful for all of my WONDERFUL customers who have helped make my shop what it is today.

While I primarily began selling archival prints, due to my injury, I am now offering more printables - but archival prints are still an option. What I also love is that you can purchase amazing art without the commitment of spending hundreds of dollars on pieces you may tire of easily (remember my room changing story above?! :) Perhaps you can relate!

It has been such a fabulous journey so far. I have been inspired every day by family, friends and customers.

Thank you so much for reading my story. And thank you for checking out Little Lief Creative.

Love,
Leah

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a printable as a print?

YES! ALL of our printables are available as prints. If the printable you see is not listed under our shipped prints (we are slowly adding them) please let us know and we will be happy to print you one for the same prince etc as our listed ones.!

Do your prints come with frames?

Sorry not at this time!

Where do I print outside of North America?

In the UK we recommend Boots.
In Holland, we recommend HEMA.
In Australia, we recommend Officeworks.

While each store has varying uploading procedures online, we recommend calling ahead - OR - bring your file in person on a USB and have them custom print it for you. Many of their sizes may vary in from our sizes, but having it made custom will not cost you an arm and a leg, in fact no more than a cup of coffee for any print A3/11x14 and smaller.

I'd like a custom size - is that possible?

All prints are available in any size. While they are listed with specific sizing options in the listing, we really can have any print made at any size for you.

Just send us a message with your required size and we will be happy to help you!

What is the difference between a printable and a giclee print?

We offer our customers both options because some people prefer a piece that is crafted with quality and others would like beautiful art - instantly!

Giclee prints are made with archival inks and archival paper. This means they will last a lifetime and not fade.

Digital Prints - or downloads - are instantly delivered to you upon purchase. Simply open the file and print, or have it printed at a local print shop such as Costco, Staples etc...

Wholesale availability

For wholesale inquiries, please send an email to leah@littleliefcreative.com or littleliefcreative@gmail.com. We will get back to you as promptly as possible. Thank you!

How to best Print at Home

We suggest using a smooth cardstock or heavyweight photo paper in matte. Matte paper is less likely to contribute to glare and reflection when framed.

When printing, set printer to "original size" or 100%. Select the highest printing quality. In the paper selection option, select the appropriate option for your selected paper (matte, gloss, etc).

Where Can I Print in Canada?

We love Staples, but you can also print at FedEx, Costco (if you are a member) and Walmart.

Often their sizes do not fit standard frames like our files do, so you have a few choices:

• I recommend saving your desired file to a USB and handing them the files in person. We recommend matte paper of at least 100lb quality or higher. Prints are incredibly affordable - for example - an 11x14" poster printed at Staples right then and there with a USB cost less than $5.

• Choose one of our files and upload it to their websites -go to printing and services) and crop or adjust until the image looks good in the preview. Beware of any warning of the res being too low - you may need to use a larger file.

Call or email your store for extra help!

Where can I Print in the US?

We love Staples, but you can also print at Walgreens, Kinkos', Target, FedEx, Costco (if you are a member) & Walmart.

Often their sizes do NOT fit standard frames like our files do, so you have a few choices:

•I recommend saving your file to a USB and handing them the files in person. We recommend matte paper of at least 100lb quality or higher. Prints are incredibly affordable - for example - an 11x14" poster printed at Staples right then and there with a USB cost less than $5CDN.

• Choose one of our files and upload it to their websites -go to printing & services) and crop or adjust until the image looks good in the preview.

If you are stuck, call your local store for personalized help! They are very helpful. :)
