Whistling sands travel poster

Whistling Sands (Porthor) in the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales is a quiet beautiful sandy beach.

“Whistling Sands”, is derived from the squeak or whistle emitted by the unusually shaped sand particles being rubbed together when walked on in warm weather. The fine sand really does squeak or whistle as you walk on this lovely beach, especially if you stamp or slide your feet on dry sand.

The National Trust owns the beach and the surrounding area, which does mean that there is a cafe, toilet and the beach is kept spotless – but you need to pay to park. The Wales Coast Path can be accessed from both sides without going on the beach itself, with the chance to enjoy incredible views of the coastline all year round.

Whistling Sands (Porthor) is great for bodyboarding and surfing especially if the swell is coming from the right direction, there are some other great surf spots further along the coast.

Seals are a common sight off the coastline and for nature lovers there is a lot of other wildlife to see and spot. Dogs are allowed on the beach off-peak times only.

Our Framed posters - with no reflections!

Call us silly but we think that when you buy one of our framed posters you want to see ... ummm our posters. We hate reflections that acrylic/perspex and glass gives to framed artwork. In some lighting situations, these reflections ruin the view of any artwork.

Presentation is super important to us.

We strongly believe that our posters look their best framed without any glass or perspex in front of them. As our posters are not paper but a thermoplastic they have a gorgeous matt finish and super vibrant colours but they are also water-resistant, non-absorbant and hard-wearing, so they will work great without the perspex.

Note that we will include the perspex in the packaging, so if you wanted you could fit it yourself. Or we can frame your posters with the acrylic/perspex in - just mention it in the notes.

Metal Prints

The Metal prints are approximately the same size as the poster.

The aluminium metal print is lightweight, just 1mm thick, therefore, can be hung on any wall.

They are weather- and water- resistant, making it suited for bathrooms, kitchen or even outdoors. Using a state-of-the-art printing technique, the inks are permanently bonded to a coating of the aluminium using heat and pressure - resulting in exceptionally vibrant colours that are very durable.

Metal Prints arrive ready to hang with aluminium rails attached to the back for easy installation out of the box.
