BRO Holiday Gift Guide | Do It Yourself Photography Wall Art

I don’t know what it is about giant wall art that has got me so fixated these days, but it’s a trend that I’m happy to see getting bigger and bigger.

Now Rory Allen is throwing his hat into the ring with a “do it yourself” wall mural that can be made using your own specified photograph. Take, for example, the image that seen here that shows a historic image of the 400 block of Main Street on Labor Day in 1900 during a parade.

Rory, who owns Zoom Copy in Buffalo, says that it took a mere 22 minutes to hang the custom mural, using printed segments that are temporarily self adhered to the wall. The image can remain permanently or be taken down when desired. “I am teaming up with Mrs. Smith Agency to create an e-commerce site that allows people to upload any decent resolution photo and specify the dimensions,” says Rory. “Then we send the customer a kit they can hang themselves, or we can do it for them if they live in Buffalo.”


I love this idea. I think that this is the perfect gift for photographers who have one or two images that they covet. Plus, there’s nothing like walking into someone’s house and seeing an eye-catching photographic mural on a large wall.

This process makes it easy-breezy to create giant works of custom art at the home or office. The image turns out to cost about $5 a square foot.

If you are interested in learning more about this quick and easy (and relatively painless) mural process, contact Rory at or call him 716-603-3602. Website is coming soon.

Good luck finding the perfect photo… I’m having a tough time coming up with the exact one that I want hanging my house!
