The only problem was that I wanted a print that had blue and green in it. Well Jose solved that problem right away. I sent him color suggestions and he customized it for me! When I received it in the mail it was exactly what I hoped for and I was very impressed with the high-quality and vibrant print! A total steal for 20 bucks. So I wanted to share a little bit about Bird Ave with you all.
Bird Ave is the product of Jose and his lovely wife. They make an absolutely amazing team. One of my favorite series in Jose's store is the Cities Series. It is absolutely fantastic! I think I have to purchase the Greenville, SC print and have Jose match the color to my KitchenAid mixer. Wouldn't that be cute!? The series has cities from all over the world including Boston, Washington DC, Louisville, Sydney, LA, NYC, Wilmington, New Orleans... and MANY MANY More! You can check them all out HERE and these are some of my local favorites:
He has several other "Carolina" themed prints that are fantastic. I think this one would look pretty darn good in garnet and black!
Jose Shared Some Facts About the Shop:
- A lot of effort is put into making sure each print goes out perfect. Even though I have designed the prints earlier, when each order is received I often make little changes that enhance the print or add dates, etc. that customers request.
- Custom requests are welcome. It is great when customers make requests for quotes from their wedding song or places they have traveled.
- We always want a customer to smile when they open their print or have a feeling that is unexpected. So, we put a lot of thought into the packaging. (I absolutely LOVED the package!! I had a huge smile on my face when I opened up Harper's print!)
- We understand that artwork can be very expensive; therefore, the prints are designed to be affordable to fit Ikea frames.
I absolutely love Bird Ave and LOVE the fact that EVERYTHING and I mean everything can be customized. I sent Jose the two colors in Harper's bedding and he matched his print to the bedding perfectly!! Colors, wording, you name it and Jose will make it happen.
