“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”
Dead Poets Society
Words are powerful. We can choose to use this power constructively with words of encouragement, or we can waste our opportunities and fall to the dark side – using words in a destructive way. Words have the ability to help and to heal.
Inspirational quotes and sayings from leaders in society and successful people like Oprah, Helen Keller, Richard Branson and Maya Angelou can help you reframe negative thoughts during tough times.
Quotes can be printed on t-shirts, mugs and diaries so of course, we jump at the opportunity to do canvas prints with quotes and sayings – why not!
Where Can I Used Them
Canvas prints with quotes on them can be used pretty much anywhere. It is probably easier to decide what quote you want, and then think about where it would work best. Make space for that print 😉
We had a few ideas of where you can incorporate canvas prints with quotes and sayings, so grab a coffee (or tea if that’s your jam) and let’s go over a few of the most popular places.
In the Office
It makes zero difference whether you work in a traditional office setting, or work at home – you can incorporate canvas prints into your space.
Select quotes and saying that fit with the overall voice and mission of the business and create a few prints for the passages, ‘canteen area’ or boardroom. You want it to be consistent with everything else that your business stands for, especially if your clients are going to see them.
There are so many quotes online so it would be a fairly simple exercise to just Google the theme that you are looking for and VOILA, you’re ready to go.
Most of us have a few favourite quotes or at least one that you’ve read or heard and it resonates with you – even if you can’t always remember the exact works. Make it personal so that it means something to you.
In Your Art or Photography Studio
We love a good quote that has been given an artistic flair. Quotes about art and photography are often quite beautiful on their own, but they definitely level up when some paint or Photoshop techniques are added to the text.
In the Classroom
This suggestion links back to our previous article about canvas prints as gifts for teachers. You find the full scoop on those suggestions here.
Quotes and sayings in the classroom can be extremely inspirational and motivating to the students. They don’t all have to be serious though – a few prints with humour thrown into the mix would be fun too.
Kitchen Canvas Prints
There are quite a few fun sayings that can be printed onto canvas. What better place to put food inspiration than in the kitchen? You could also incorporate food jokes – many of them make use of wordplay and have been known to incite a chuckle or two, even though they can be super silly sometimes. Just remember that if you want to hang prints near the sink, oven or stovetop then we suggest you go with an acrylic print so that the heat and moisture don’t damage it over time.
Quotes in the Nursery
Canvas prints in the baby room are very popular. Bring quotes in about growing up and being kind can be a great reminder to kids as they start their journey through life. They obviously won’t be able to read them initially but you tell them what it says and use the print as a constant reminder or conversation starter.
We are certain that there are loads of other ideas that we haven’t mentioned here so if you have any winners then please share them with us. You can pop us an email and we will include it in a future article.
On an unrelated note – we’d like to wish the Springboks and amazing game on Saturday. We’re keeping the positive vibes going and are ready to support our team.
All our love
