We live in a 2-bedroom apartment and we’re saving money for a house. One of Travis’s dreams is to have a man-cave. It seemed a bit far-away, considering we just signed a new lease at the apartment. I want Travis to have a man-cave and of course, I’ll have my mom-oasis or blog-oasis. Right now, we share space in the living room. There’s no battle. He watches Netflix (since we just ditched the cable a few weeks ago) and I’m on the computer.
Even though we dreamed of the day where Travis’s work schedule would coincide with me being awake, we’ve kind of fallen in to a rut. While he watched TV, I would do my thing on the computer, occasionally sharing my thoughts out loud. Travis would grunt or giggle or make some other seemingly appropriate verbal communication, yet not quite words…..
When I finally realized what was happening, I decided that it’s healthy to have a bit more time apart, doing our own thing, even if it’s in a separate room such as a man-cave. After much thought, I decided to agree to let Travis take over the sun room as his man-cave. Well, I said it, but I’m not sure I really expected him to take action so soon…
Before action came my commitment to EVENTUALLY getting Travis closer towards his man-cave goal. I learned about Pop Chart Lab’s posters and figured a poster would be an affordable gesture to rev Travis up for his future man-cave. I guess I never really intended to give up my sun room, even though it wasn’t being used.
It wasn’t long after I let Travis pick out a poster from Pop Chart Lab, one of around 30 choices. Pop Chart Lab was born in 2010 when a book editor and graphic designer teamed up. Their goal;
Pop Chart Lab has successfully captured the spirit of an infographic (without all the boring facts) using cultural data, turning them into meaningful works of art. Travis chose A Collection of Classic American Automobiles to work towards his man-cave, which came a lot sooner than I’d expected.
Pop Chart Lab offers posters that are suitable for any man-cave whether it’s focus be sports and beer or gaming and comics, among others. There were even options for me and my love for anything food related, as well as movies, music, nature, technology and more.
One of the first things we noticed after deciding on a print for Travis’s future man-cave was that it was packaged very neatly and securely when purchasing Pop Chart Lab products through Amazon.
Next, we noticed how thick the poster itself was. The poster is 100 lb. stock. Even good copy/print paper is at most 20 lb. so this is pretty thick. Actually, its super damn thick. I made sure that we did not poke holes in it. I want to frame it, so until then we hung it with double-sided tape.
Using 100 lb. archival stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, this poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with vegetable-based inks in New York.
The poster we chose from Pop Chart Lab is signed and numbered. A Collection of Classic American Automobiles features 96 hand-drawn all-American motorcars and automobiles and makes a great gift for the car enthusiast whether it be for their garage or the man-cave.
So, I came home one day to find my sun room transformed into a man-cave. I’m struggling because it’s totally bachelor and it could be more manly and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. I want to make it more “pretty”. Yeah, I know that’s not a man-cave, but I’m sure we can find a happy medium. We both agreed on this poster.
I’m very happy with this Pop Chart Lab Poster. There are enough options to please anyone from the man-cave to the teenager to the foodies or even the sports enthusiast. The posters seem a little pricey, but they’re very high quality. I definitely recommend Pop Chart Lab for sharing your enthusiasm in any area of your home as well as for gifts for all-ages.
