Finding the right art to decorate your home is not as easy as it could first sound. On the Internet, there are plenty of websites where you can purchase posters, but most just don’t have a very creative selection as they try to sell images that were already popular.

On top of that, plenty posters marketplaces just have low standards when it comes to printing, so it’s hard to be confident about the quality of the prints you will receive.

Displates are like posters, but much better!

Posters are one of the cheapest ways to get art on your walls. However, they tend to destroy the walls, and the posters themselves are not very resistant.

Displates have all the advantages of posters, they are cheap and make it easy to have art at home or in the office. The comparison stops here, though, because Displates are much better than posters.

In terms of resistance, it’s even useless to compare. Traditional posters are made of easy-to-fold paper, while Displates are printed on metal. Yes, they are like “metal posters”. Try playing “scissor, paper, metal”, you will see who wins.

For your walls, Displates are also a much safer option. No matter what you use to hang your posters, it will leave a mark or a stain on the wall. Displates come with a convenient hanging system that uses magnets. Not only this makes it easier to hang your art, but it also doesn’t break the walls in any way. Who said amazing?

A vibrant community of artists

The art of the Displates is not created by an underpaid grumpy graphic designer working in the dark, it’s the work of an amazing global community of artists whose passion is really obvious when you look at their designs.
