Printable Woodland Thanksgiving Set from Caravan Shoppe

Say hello to the Woodland Thanksgiving Set! This is a whimsical set of printables that includes large format printable posters for your walls as well as printable decorations for your table top. We thought it would be helpful to write this blog post to let you know exactly what comes in this set, and how we recommend using it!

WALL ART

First let’s start with the options for decorating walls! For this set, we have seven poster options with different sentiments for Thanksgiving. Choose your favorites and print them out! Each of the designs are offered on black on white or white on black.

PRINTING these large posters: We often get the question of HOW to print these large images. It is actually pretty easy and inexpensive. Just put the files onto a jump drive and go to a local print shop that does engineering or architectural prints (we recommend calling ahead to confirm that they do these large prints for under $10; for us, Staples has yielded the most consistent positive results). The print shop will take care of the rest. If you are still hesitant about doing this, we have more detailed instructions here, and our blog contributor Lazy Krista just recently wrote a great post about how to print large scale, where she even admits that the idea of this was initially overwhelming and intimidating to her. But after doing it for the first time, she realized it was no big deal at all! The posters can print up to 36 x 48 inches, but you can request smaller sizes as well. The print shop will typically charge you per square foot, so smaller prints = smaller prices.

 

DINING DECOR

Table Covering: This set includes a giant table covering with the adorable woodland creatures! This is a very easy way to bring BIG IMPACT to your table! Simply print your table covering like any of the posters, and use over a tablecloth or over butcher paper. Feel free to give your guests pens, markers, or crayons, and invite them to color if they would like as well! Four options are included in this set.

These print up to 36 inches by 48 inches (HINT: That is BIG!). We like them covering the whole table, but you could also have fun with them as a runner along your table top! Print out full size, and cut them down the middle!

Extras for the Table: We have also included napkin rings (4 designs with black or white background) and placemats (5 designs with black or white background). If you prefer not to do the giant table coverings, then use the placemats! And napkin rings are an easy ways to dress up your table just a little bit more.

Printable posters and table decor from Caravan Shoppe.

Today we have launched the Grateful Praise Thanksgiving Set! This is a beautiful and elegant set of printables that includes large format printable posters for your walls as well as printable decorations for your table top. Because we may have overstuffed this set (fitting for Thanksgiving, right?) we thought it would be helpful to write this blog post to let you know exactly what comes in this set, and how we recommend using it!

WALL ART

First let’s start with the options for decorating walls! For this set, we chose one of our favorite thanksgiving hymns, “For the Beauty of the Earth,” written by Foliott S. Pierpoint. Using these lyrics, we have created poster options that will work on their own, or printed and displayed together.

“For the Beauty of the Earth”: We have 3 design options for the first line of this hymn: 1) Horizontal and plain, 2) Horizontal with foliage, 3) Vertical with foliage. You can also choose to print these black on white or white on black.

“For the Beauty of the Skies”: We’ve included the same options as above. 1) Horizontal and plain, 2) Horizontal with stars, 3) Vertical with stars. Also in black on white and white on black.

“Lord of all to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise”: The last line of the hymn is available in black on white or white on black, with foliage above and below.

Whole hymn: We have also included 2 options (vertical and horizontal) for you to display the entire hymn if you would like!

Finally, we have included 2 sentiments that are unrelated to the hymn, but perfect for Thanksgiving!

Table Covering: My favorite part of this set (this is Alma writing here) is the giant table covering! I think that this instantly transforms your table into something AMAZING! Simply print your table covering like any of the posters, and use over a tablecloth or over butcher paper. This beautiful table covering combines flowing foliage and calligraphy and is stunning in both black on white or white on black. Feel free to give your guests pens, markers, or crayons, and invite them to color if they would like as well!

How to print large engineering posters | Caravan Shoppe

I have a confession. When I was asked to be a contributor to Caravan’s blog I almost turned it down for one silly reason: I was terrified to print the large posters. I quickly learned that my fear had no merit. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get these large posters printed!

Let me tell you how easy it is. This past week, I went to Staples to get the Blast Off Poster printed for my rocket ship obsessed son. I planned on printing the poster and a few more things on normal card stock paper in color. I went to the store and quickly learned that the employee working the printing station had only been working for two weeks and it was her first time alone that evening. I told her what I needed and she had my poster printed within two minutes but I ended up having to go back because she couldn’t figure out how to print the colored copies. See? It’s even easier than getting regular color copies made!

If you’re putting off printing your posters because you have no idea what to do, I’m here to help! This is how you get them printed, step by step.

First things first. Go buy your prints from Caravan! Almost immediately after you purchase your prints, you will get an email that contains the files of the items you purchased. Click on the link and the files will download to your computer. I like having a folder on my computer that I can save all the things I’ve purchased online to so I don’t loose them.

Each item from Caravan comes with two things in it: the product and a set of instructions. The picture above is a screenshot of both items on my computer. Everything you need to know about printing one of the posters is in the instructions. They even include the sizes you can print your poster at.

Transfer the file of the poster and the instructions to a jump drive and head to your local printer. I like going to Staples. When you get to the printer, hand them your jump drive and tell them you have a file you’d like to get printed. They will bring up the files on their computer and all you need to tell them is you’d like the poster printed in black and white. These large posters are also called engineering prints. If they ask you specifically what size you want and you’re not sure, you can have them pull up the instructions on your jump drive.

The printer may also ask you if you have the right to print the file you are bringing in. The instructions contain a copyright release. Show them the instruction file and you will be good to go.

There are so many great things about printing these posters! As I said earlier, I just printed the Blast Off Poster. I had it printed at 36 x 48 inches and it only cost $7.79. Because it’s so budget friendly and I still have the file on my computer if anything happens to the poster, I love putting them in places where my two year old plays. It gives him the opportunity to learn to respect the things I hang on the wall without being panicked that he may rip the poster.

Also, My husband and I recently moved into a new home with lots of white walls and nothing to decorate them with. The Caravan posters have turned our boring house into a cozy home while we’re deciding what we permanently want to do. We have the It’s Better Tandem Print hanging in our bedroom, the Camera! print in the playroom, and I’ve been using the Pregnancy Countdown poster to countdown my current pregnancy. They’ve also helped me expand my sad collection of holiday decorations. I have a poster on hand for almost every holiday. You can definitely say I’m a fan of these posters!

Now that you know how easy these posters are to print, I hope you’ll get to the printer’s and finally get that poster you’ve been putting off printing printed.
