As many of you know, Wallshotz and RiverWorks Printing are one in the same.
Check out the new blog post on a super cool project!
Back To School With New Graphics:
The Monkeytulz Collection is a collection of wall art for children. The Wallshot, Wall Borders and Height Charts are lovingly printed with super fun illustrations on our Eco-Decal material and is perfect for children’s rooms as it is eco-friendly, non-toxic and of course, movable! Install it next to the bed, or move it next to the dresser or the desk or wherever!
These decals are a great alternative to traditional wallpaper and are gentle on walls. No tricky install, just smooth onto the wall with nothing but your hand. Remove or reuse whenever you’re ready. The decal is easily changed out when kids are ready for something new! To reposition, gently remove from wall and re-stick! Moving to a new house? We always have extra backing paper for you to put your decal on and move a long distance. The backing paper will keep the adhesive clean, ensuring the decal lasts longer. You can take the record of your child’s growth with you!
Monkeytulz (mun-kee-tools) represents the creations of local New Hampshire artist, Karen Goodwin. Karen spent many years creating exhibits for the Boston Children’s Museum and now spends her time as an illustrator, breathing life into the whimsical characters that somehow find their way into her head. She hopes that her characters will bring smiles to you and the children in your lives, and that you will find in them your own stories to tell.
We look forward to adding more print options in the future. Have an idea for your own print? Create your own wallshot by uploading your photo on our website!Shop Now
Cheers to The Old Man of The Mountain!
marks 13 years since the local favorite, The Old Man of the Mountain, fell to the ground. This amazing landmark, first observed by a team of surveyors in 1805, was a series of granite ledges, carved by glaciers, in the shape of a man’s face. Perhaps Mother Nature has a sense of humor after all?
In the 1920s, it was apparent New England weather was taking a toll on the old rock formation. The years of freezing and thawing created large cracks in the rocks, which were mended with chains. In the the 1950s, the State appropriated $25,000 to allow for better weatherproofing and had continued to maintain it each year. However, in the end, Mother Nature won and the rocks collapsed on May 3, 2003
In honor of this beautiful state icon, we pulled together a few of our loves and created a new mouse pad decal. A little fly fishing in the New Hampshire mountains, anyone? Printed on EcoDecals, this peel and stick decal is eco-friendly and movable.
“Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoe makers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but up in the Mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that there He makes men.” Daniel Webster
“Killing your FISH is like murdering your therapist.” Chris “Stinky” Carey
For our Angler’s Manifesto, we rounded up some of our favorite Fly Fishing quotes, from the profound to the humorous, and created an Eco-friendly decal to display and share; a sustainable product for a sustainable sport! This piece is printed on our Eco-Decal, a woven fabric sticker that is durable and repositionable, allowing it to stick on just about any smooth surface. Being a movable decal, it is pretty sweet to be able to move it around when you want or need to, without damage to your walls.
A pretty Brook Trout skin makes a great background for any wall, desk, window, ceiling…you get the point. This is art that will keep you thinking about the stream, like you need any help with that!

Now the bill is onto President Obama’s desk. We need to put pressure on him to ensure he does indeed veto the bill.
“The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency have finalized a landmark rule clarifying longstanding Clean Water Act protections for many but not all streams, wetlands, and other waters critical to sportsmen and our hunting and fishing heritage as well as to the 117 million Americans who depend on them for drinking water. Many of these waters have been at increased risk of pollution and destruction for more than a decade and it has taken its toll. For the first time in over 40 years, the rate of wet-land loss is on the rise.” TRCP.org
So much of wildlife and wild lands depend on clean water. However, this is more than a sportsmen and property owner issue. This is important for everyone in our country. So much of the waters that are protected, are a source of drinking water. We must step up now to ensure we, as a human race, ensure our livelyhood, as well as generations to come.

At Wallshotz, we are always looking for ways to re-purpose our material waste. Sometimes we have shorter pieces at the end of our media rolls, and if there is not enough left for a customer’s job, we use that extra for small projects around the shop, making new products or donating to schools. In this case there was enough to piece together a print for our garage door.
We had a little fun and created a race car and put it on a photo of our garage. We installed the print in multiple panels, right on top of our insulated garage door panels. The insulation panels had a rough and uneven surface, but we conformed the vinyl into the grooves with a little bit of care. Now we see people driving by, do a little double take. What a great way to style up your business and get noticed!
We are looking forward to creating our next garage door wrap. Have some cool ideas? Let us know in the comments!

GREENLAND NH – RiverWorks Printing specializes in commercial advertising for clients both local and national, forging a unique, green niche in providing its many clients with myriad sustainability-driven printing alternatives.
In so doing, it is helping reshape the green conversation within its industry.
But before there was RiverWorks, there was Wall Shotz — now a division of the former — launched by RiverWorks owner Jeff Cutter as a way to render his and others’ photography into frame-able works of art.
“Wall Shotz basically started out taking people’s fishing photographs out West, and in this area, and then printing the photos large for them,” Cutter says. “There’s a market for that, and my small niche is fly fishing.”
“Wall Shotz transforms your passion into a work of art,” says its website, www.wallshotz.com. “Passions enrich our lives and illustrate our personalities. Share your passions by turning your photo into a large-format print, capturing a moment in time, designed to be displayed, remembered, and experienced again.”READ FULL ARTICLE

“From Old Falls to the Sea, Let the Mousam Run Free!”
Kennebunk Light and Power District will hold a public meeting on Monday, November 16, 2015 at 7 PM in the Kennebunk Town Hall Auditorium to solicit public input on the Wright-Pierce Dam Alternatives Report on alternatives for the future of the three lowest dams on the Mousam River. A copy of the working draft of this report is posted on the Hydro page of the KLPD website at www.klpd.org. The report shows that surrendering the license and removing the dams is the lowest cost option. It is certainly the most fish-friendly option by far.
This meeting will likely drive the KLPD board decision on re-licensing the lowest three Mousam River Dams.
Please attend the meeting on the 16th and stand up for the trout, alewives, shad and American eels by supporting alternative 4: Cease Operation and Surrender FERC License for All Three Sites.
If you cannot attend, then please e-mail KLPD President Jay Kilbourn, [email protected] or write him at Kennebunk Power & Light District, 4 Factory Pasture Lane, Kennebunk ME 04043
