This original tree ring wall art print features some important events from Calgary's history. Each event is represented by a specific colour that corresponds to the annual growth ring of the tree and the caption at the bottom.

Trees grow in rings, with the oldest ring in the centre and younger rings on the outside. We are able to count the rings to tell the age of the tree. All of our personalized tree designs started as a tree cookie, and were made into a hand-pressed print. Once we got a perfect hand-pressed print, we digitized it. The digitizing process can take several pain-staking hours but once each ring is digitized, we are able to select specific years and assign a different colour for each historic event. The colour of the font for each historical Calgary event and year of the event will match the colour of the growth ring of the corresponding year.

Perhaps the coolest thing about this print is the tree was local to the Calgary (Alberta, Canada) area. But don't worry, it fell down due to natural causes.

This print is perfect as a home decor gift for a housewarming, birthday, holiday, or just because.

We aim to be as sustainable as possible in the creation of our personalized tree ring prints and we source salvaged wood for our prints. Once a tree has been sourced, we manually create a print with ink and paper, and then we digitize that print.
