Every once in a while I come across a website full of interesting products, one that makes me stop to take a peek, only to find myself still browsing on that site an hour later.
Artollo.com is one such site.
Who is Artollo?

Artollo offers art, home decor, and other gift items, and their selection has something for everyone. I was amazed at the variety of items (over 5,000!) that Artollo offers – all nicely organized into categories, making products easy to find. The Artollo website is very clean, well-laid out, and easy to navigate, things that are very important when you are highlighting such beautiful, fun, and whimsical designs such as the designs that adorn the merchandise offered at Artollo.
Speaking of whimsical designs, I fell in love with so many of the Artollo designs, that I had a very difficult time narrowing down my choice. In fact, I had to try to be practical and choose a few items that I could really use, or that would go with my decor. Truth be told, I could have ordered three-quarters of the merchandise on Artollo.com if I had been given the chance!
First, I decided that I would love to have an Artollo t-shirt with one of my favourite designs on it – a water-colour polar bear:
I shot a close-up of the image that appears on my black t-shirt from Artollo so you could see it in more detail. I think it’s beautiful! My Artollo t-shirt fit according to the size I ordered (no surprises!) and is made from a quality 100% cotton. The t-shirt is soft and the decal is not harsh on your skin from the inside (as some decals can be). Like all Artollo products, this is t-shirt is backed by Artollo’s 100% satisfaction guarantee. I won’t be taking advantage of their guarantee…I’m 100% satisfied with my t-shirt!
While I chose black as the colour for my t-shirt (as I think it shows of the colours in the polar bear so nicely), you can choose from eleven other colours should you prefer something different. Ladies, you’ll also love that the Artollo t-shirts for women are cut in a more “fitted” way to flatter our feminine bodies.
I chose another practical item from Artollo – this Map Of Canada Tote Bag:
This ultra-soft and stylish reusable bag is a great size for carrying all kinds of personal belongs to the beach, on a road-trip, or even for every-day use. Being the proud Canadian that I am, I adore this image of the map of Canada. The colours are beautiful, and I just love the design! Are you starting to see a pattern? I love the “water-colour” look of many of the Artollo designs!
For my last choice, I opted for this little beauty, a water-colour print of a beautiful Octopus:
This little guy will look terrific on the bathroom wall. Again, I love the uniqueness and variety of colours used in this Artollo print! Artollo prints come rolled in a hard cardboard tube (well-protected), so you need to have them framed…or if you feel creative, you can do it yourself. I have yet to get my octopus print framed, but that’s something on my spring to-do list!
Speaking of prints, Artollo has print designs for every taste. If you aren’t into the water-colour look as much as I am, maybe you would prefer another style of Artollo print. In particular, if you are a parent looking for a few prints to dress up the nursery or your toddler’s room, you are sure to find some absolutely adorable prints in this Artollo prints selection.
The great folks at Artollo also let me choose a print for a door prize at the recent BConnected Conference here in Ottawa. So of course, naturally, I selected this fabulous print of the skyline of the city of Ottawa. I just love it! Hopefully the winner of this prize was equally as happy with it! Looking for a skyline print of your city, or another city you love? Artollo has designs available for other cities as well.
One of the things I love about Artollo is that, if you find a particular design you are crazy about, there’s a chance the design comes printed on more than one product. For example, with the city of Ottawa print design I received for the BConnected Conference, I could have also ordered the same design on a matching reusable bag or coffee mug. So many options at Artollo!
