FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 16, 2013-- Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS), the world’s largest office products company and second largest internet retailer, has launched its new Sports & Art Photo Gallery which provides consumers with fast, affordable and beautiful over-sized prints to make gifting or home design easy.

A new digital library of licensed professional photographs establishes the Staples Sports and Art Photo Gallery as an industry-first photo content and same day service destination. The Sports and Art Photo Gallery allows customers in Staples stores to select, purchase and print a wide range of licensed photos including the National Football League, National Basketball Association, Landscapes, Fine Art collection as well as many more.

“Our customers asked for affordable, high-end sports photos and art prints, and we delivered with the new Staples Sports and Art Photo Gallery which makes office and home décor easy,” said Alison Corcoran, senior vice president, stores and online marketing, Staples. “Sports fans can select their favorite teams and players and personalize select NFL photography while art lovers can choose from a selection of fine art, landscapes, cityscapes, nature and animal prints to bring out the ‘inner designer’ in everyone.”

Staples provides customers access to an extensive library of photos, including timely sports shots added to collections the day after a big game – the perfect gift to accent any “man cave.” Customers can use Staples Copy and Print for same-day pickup of any photo.

Staples has partnered with the host of HGTV’s “Color Splash,” David Bromstad, to create design tips to show consumers how they can use the Sports and Art Photo Gallery to create fun spaces in any home or office. “Staples’ new photo assortment addresses the common desire for affordable design photography that stands out and makes a strong and personalized style impression,” said Bromstad. “Design lovers on a budget can decorate any environment or give a personalized gift with amazing gallery-worthy photography.”

Design tips from David Bromstad for using photos as décor:

  • Think outside the box! Cluster your prints in mass and create your own custom wallpaper; this will definitely bring on the WOW factor.
  • Use the Staples prints and create a stunning and unique lampshade.
  • When hanging your pictures make sure they are clustered closely together to design a fabulous feature wall.
  • Create a story when hanging your art. This will spark conversation and make the most of a simple concept and push it over the top.
