About Us


Art with Heart at Upscale Printable Art

Welcome to the story of Upscale Printable Art, a tapestry woven from passion, creativity, and a deep love for animals and artistry. At the heart of our vibrant company is the proud owner, designer, and dreamer, Natalie, supported by a dedicated Cape Town crew. We embody the spirit of South Africa, crafting each piece with local hands and hearts.

Our name reflects our journey and our ethos. "Upscale" is our nod to the superior standard we uphold and the state-of-the-art technology we use to enhance vintage art, breathing new life into each piece. It's also a playful hint at the upscaling process that ensures each printable piece is a clear, vibrant work of art.

Our mission is twofold: to adorn your spaces with affordable elegance and to extend a helping hand to the voiceless and vulnerable at Woodrock Animal Rescue, The NSPCA and BarkingMad. Each purchase at Upscale doesn't just enrich your home; it contributes to the sanctuary of countless cherished animals.

Join us in this artful journey of transformation — of spaces, of lives, and of care. With every stroke of design and every order placed, we're not just curating art; we're crafting a legacy of beauty and benevolence.

Thank you for bringing our creations into your world and for being a pivotal part of our purpose-driven story. Together, let's fill the world with art and kindness.


A Personal Note

Hi! 👋 I'm Nat, the person behind the screen.

Thanks for taking the time to read our story! I'm not going to bore you with my qualifications and all the professional stuff - that's what LinkedIn is for!

I just want to introduce myself and let you know that there is a real, hard-working, people-and-animal-loving person at the other end of this website.

When you have a compliment or a complaint, I am the one on the other end of the phone/computer. I want to assure you that I will do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction and to offer you my honest guarantee that everything you read on this site about locally crafted, proudly South African products is true. We will never sell you anything that has been mass-produced and imported from China - all those carbon emissions and throwaway products are not good for our planet!

When I'm not being an art seller/web & graphic & surface designer/illustrator/digital marketer, 😅 I'm usually hanging out with my family (yes, that includes my pets) enjoying good company, lots of laughs, long golf course walks, epic gaming, and the occasional braai.

I've put a lot of work into our products and this website (yes, I built the entire thing myself) and I appreciate you taking the time to look around. If you choose to buy one of our products, I hope it brings you as much joy as making it brought me. ✌️
