Destination Art: A Journey Down Memory Lane

If we were to be honest with ourselves we’re all looking to regain the youth we once had. When we reach a certain time in our lives we begin to look back on the past with a fondness that wasn’t present in our youth. Inevitably nostalgia becomes a part of our day to day lives as we try to hold on to the wonderful times in our colourful history.

That feeling of deep happiness can only be brought on by the memories of our youth. This is the reason why we collect things, hoard items or get out the old photo albums from time to time. This longing for the past was also the inspiration behind Tramscrolls.com.au and its unique tram and bus banner art.

We spent a large portion of our youth travelling to and from school, the playground or the youth centre usually on the local bus and tram systems, the memories of your first bus ride or the daily ride to a friend’s house sits deep in our minds. I’d wager you can still remember the route number to your high school.

Why not have a piece of tram or bus roll art in your home so you can be reminded of those good times every day? Tramscrolls.com.au has decided to bring this exciting destination art concept to Australia. Visit our site to find out more.

Personalised Tram and Bus Art

You will be able to find that perfect tram or bus banner which takes you on that ride down memory lane. Tramscrolls.com.au makes tram and bus scrolls to replicate all designs from 1920 to 1960. These personalised prints come in three different sizes and four different colours including our very special pastel blue.

Our personalised destination art can be made to have the look and feel of vintage tram and bus rolls if you’re looking for that authentic piece of destination art that will fit perfectly in your home.

We take great pride in the quality of our prints; don’t accept cheap imitations. Our destination art is presented on 100% cotton canvas helping to maintain that vintage look. Tramscrolls.com.au will deliver you personal destination art design to any home in Australia free of charge.

The ups and downs everyone experiences during life have often been likened to a ride on a cosmic roller coaster.  Actually, if life was just one smooth glide, we would probably get bored part way through, and even uncomfortable moments often provide laughs later on.  Bus and Tram Scrolls are a way of celebrating both the good, and maybe some of the other times, too.  Always remember that getting there is half the fun.

If you’ve been fortunate enough to have taken a world tour, you surely will have had experiences worth remembering.  A wonderful way to relive your journey would be with a tram and bus blind from our European Blinds Gallery.  Blinds showing the routes in Paris, Belfast, and London bring all the flavour of these exciting cities into your home.  The blinds are available in black & white, beige, pastel, and coloured and add an interesting focal point to any room.

However, a world tour is only one way for Australians to approach wall art from Bus and Tram Scrolls – destinations in your home city or where you may have moved later in life also available.  Watsons Bay, East Brisbane, and Fitzroy are among the blind prints offered.  A look at any of these canvas prints will surely bring back memories to anyone who travelled these cities on trams or buses.  These are a part of Australian history and lore that will never been forgotten.

Bus and tram scrolls can be used not only as destination art, but for a multitude of other purposes.  Let your imagination go when it comes to designing your own personal bus canvas.  Are you a pet lover?  If so, why not use our Design Your Own page to highlight your favorite dog or cat (or even gecko).  The pet’s name, where you acquired him or her, their most endearing qualities, and their favorite toy and food can all be included on the print.  Those who own stables might enjoy listing their horses.

Personalised art based on underground signs can also be used for occasions such as weddings and anniversaries.  The flexibility that Bus & Tram Scrolls offers to our customers means that we can provide whatever you wish.  Parents and grandparents will enjoy bus blinds with the names of children and grandchildren, and once again, you are offered a choice of colour, size, and type, as well as whether you want your print to arrive stretched or unstretched.

In order to capture the ambiance and ‘feel’ of the old bus and tram blinds, we use a coarser grade of canvas when making our prints.  The inks we use for the canvas prints are the highest quality and will resist deterioration for decades without problem.  Once the printing is complete, we laminate the canvas to protect the ink from scratches.  These blinds look great hanging on the wall, or even propped next to the telly.  Our FAQs can help answer most of your questions, but we are always ready to provide personal service and advice, too.

If you’re looking for a new decorative theme for you home, Bus & Tram Blinds can add a meaningful personal element.  Not only are these blinds a great way to provide wall art, but they can also say something about your travels through life, real or imaginary.  There are a number of ways to approach bus and trams blinds, any of which will bring a special focus and accent to the decoration of your home.

Although canvas tram blinds are no longer in use, they did provide an easy way for travelers to determine exactly where a particular tram was headed.  All the stops would be displayed in block lettering, generally in white on a black background.  For those living in the UK, there are a number of ways to celebrate these old tram lines, such as the blind that shows the London-Full Line schedule.  Available not only in black & white, you can also use the more softly coloured cream & brown or pastel blue to complement a more subtle décor.

Most of us have spent time daydreaming about places we have never seen, and imaginary trips can be made more real if you catalogue your journey with bus blinds.  Bus & Tram Blinds offers you the chance to design your own travelogue with anywhere in the world as your destination.  Imagine sitting back on a cold, wet winter’s night and letting your mind wander to all the South Sea destinations on your tram scroll – Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, and the Cook Islands.  A journey in the mind can be nearly as satisfying as an actual one, and it’s also one that you can repeat any time you wish.

However, imaginary vacations and geographical places are not the only way that our personalised tram scrolls can be used.  Personalised art that makes use of the names of children or grandchildren will be a great way to use underground signs.  You will have a choice of size and colour for your bus canvas, and always remember that we can customise the size of the scroll if you wish.  You can also use destination art to celebrate concerts you have attended or your favorite books, the list can be almost endless.

One of the questions you may be asking yourself at this point is, “How long is my bus scroll going to last?  Will it be a faded tatter in a year or two?”  You need have no fears about the durability of our bus & tram blinds; to begin with, we replicate the sturdy canvas used in the original blinds, and even go one step better by using archival quality canvas fabric.  If you run your fingers over your scroll, you be able to feel the authentic, somewhat rough texture.  Our artisans also use the finest quality inks in order to provide sharp, bright colours that will not fade.  To make sure that your destination art looks as good in 50 years as it does the day you hang it on the wall, we laminate it to prevent scratches or dings from detracting from its appearance.
