Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 6, 2006
Holiday shoppers are always looking for unique gifts that will really stand out. And for those who care about the environment, the holidays are a perfect time to express their personal gift-giving style along with their concern for the environment. One retailer has the perfect solution—BetterWall sells authentic museum street banners as limited-edition art through their website at http://www.betterwall.com.
In the past, the vinyl banners produced to promote museum exhibitions were thrown into landfills after their work was done. There they sat for some 500 years, slowly leaching into the soil. Husband and wife team, Nick and Nora Weiser, changed all that when they founded BetterWall. They now give beautiful art banners from over 20 major museums a valuable afterlife as limited-edition art for the home.
From the arts of ancient Asia to world-renowned Impressionist masterpieces and works by contemporary artists, BetterWall offers a wide range of banners in a variety of styles, prices, and sizes. Much more unique and impressive than a poster, and more affordable than an original painting, these genuine exhibition banners take advertising art to a new level. Most banners measure between 2- to 3-feet in width and 6- to 8-feet in length, and are priced between $300 and $800. Each limited-edition banner is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity, hanging hardware, and free UPS ground shipping.
"The banners are truly dramatic and beautiful," says Nora Weiser, "and they embody good design as well as environmental stewardship." It is true that their good looks are just a part of the banners' appeal. A portion of all sales proceeds goes back to the museums, and BetterWall's partnerships with over 20 major art museums keep over 10 tons of vinyl out of landfills each year. A wide selection of authentic street banners are available through http://www.betterwall.com from top museums including The Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Each banner arrives stylishly packaged in layers to protect the artwork and to give the recipient a sense of discovery. The unique packaging includes a honeycomb foam sleeve to snugly wrap the banner without pressure points, a band of corrugated cardboard to provide stability, and a modern-patterned wrap as the beautiful finishing touch. In keeping with BetterWall's environmental focus, all of the packaging materials are recyclable.
So this year, trend-forward shoppers can go green and give a gift that will "wow" the recipient while helping the environment and supporting the arts—a limited-edition banner from BetterWall. Orders may be placed online at http://www.betterwall.com, or by phone at (303) 756-6615.
