YOUR CHOICE OF FRAMES

 

 

A frame does much more than just protect your picture, it enhances the image itself. Whether you're framing a rare poster, a contemporary print, or a special photograph, it's important you choose a frame that won't detract from the image, but will complement and complete the look. Here's your step-by-step guide to choosing the perfect frame.

The color and finish of the frame is a great way to emphasize the image it contains and to portray your own personal style. Not only can the frame be chosen to match the picture, it can be chosen to match your interior style too. So before you pick your color, take some time to consider the overall look of your space and decide what look you are going for.

The width of the frame should complement the style and size of the artwork within. A wide frame could easily overwhelm a small picture and a narrow frame will not be bold enough for a large picture. Equally a wide frame would suit a graphic and daring print but might detract from a delicate botanical print.

Typically found in offices and commercial spaces, this sleek, modern design is perfect for a contemporary look. Your choice of print is retro-laminated into a single panel of 1/4 inch thick, UV proof acrylic glass with polished edges. Four metal knobs will keep it floating from your wall. This superior quality product is ideal for a contemporary look. It features a 2 inch clear space between the edge of the frame and the print. You can have your print with or without  a white border. We include a stencil to install the metal knobs on your wall.

 

 

MATS AND BORDERS

 

WITHOUT MAT AND WITHOUT BORDER

Some prints, paintings and photographs look better without a mat or a border. Large vintage travel posters, for example, have a crisp finish when placed directly in a frame. Photographs and photographic prints can also look great straight inside a black or white frame. If you've got a graphic or typographic print and want a polished and contemporary finish, again, opt for a frame without a mat and without border.

 

WITH A MAT

Mats create a gap between the artwork and the glass which helps prevent damage from condensation or high-gloss prints sticking to the glass. We only use acid-free mount-board, which eliminates the risk of burn – staining of the print due to contaminants leeching from the board. Our mats are also white-core, which means the cut bevel-edge nearest the print remains crisp and white; lesser quality boards quickly discolor.
