There once was a time when the annual family photo was a very big deal; we’d all pile into the car and ride to the nearest Sears portrait studio or locally-owned family photo shop and pose painfully for that perfect shot.
These days, though, with the proliferation of digital cameras, smart phones, photo sharing via social networking and an overarching sense that nothing we do goes undocumented, it’s easy to forget how nice it is to frame great photos and let them decorate our homes — not just our computer screens.
New York-based brand BUTCH & Harold capitalized on the growing trend of temporary wall art, marrying it with the art of photo display by producing peel-and-stick “Stickr” picture pockets and frames.
Its founders know the importance of family — not to mention whimsy and fun — all too well: they’re sisters who named their company after the imaginary dogs they “had” as children.
BUTCH & Harold’s peel-and-stick frames and photo pockets can be removed and reapplied without damaging the surface on which they were placed; in fact, Brooke Shields thought they were so cute, she used them in her dressing room on Broadway during her turn as Morticia Addams in The Addams Family.
