OPTIONS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR DESIGN STAND-OUT
Collaborating with our team on every step of your design process. We’ll help you create one-of-a-kind, unforgettable wall-art designs meticulously crafted to reflect your personal sense of style.
Love an item on our site but it is not quite what you envisioned? Send us an email and we’ll alter it to fit your design concept.
No alteration is too small and nothing is beyond reach, from framing with metallic silver frames to soft warm silver, to creating a brand new custom piece of art based on your design project, to back-lighting a wall-sized photographic triptych or to replace specific tones on a given artwork.
We love to hear new ideas. And we look forward to tailoring your experience with us to perfectly fit your taste, color palette, and design style.
STANDARD OPTIONS FOR PAPER PRINTS
Floated in a shadowbox, with a torn or straight edge
Floating allows the piece of art to breath in the frame and highlights the detail in the piece such as texture, and deckled edges.
The backboard can be customized to any color that works best with your piece of art, however, a nice white or cream colored background or a delicate linen mat, will always work perfectly.
Print framed without mat and without border
Some photographs and artists might opt to print their images full bleed, or to the edge of the paper. For these works, forgo a mat for full-bleed framing, wherein the edge of the image meets the edge of the frame, overlapped by only a small lip on each side.
Oversize mats with centered or weighed images
It is a great idea to create a tightly spaced perfect grid. The white space of the mat doubles as a uniform pattern and would balance the varied shapes of the images selected. Large mats give image space to stand on their own, and the photos’ small size invite you in – they say, come closer!
Ideal for wide horizontal photographs. We introduced this way of framing last Fall Market at High Point. The response was spectacular. These little and inexpensive shadowboxes command attention.
Recessed framing with spacers
A gap between your work and the acrylic is more than just a stylish accent. It protects against mold growth, paper buckling, image transfer, and adhesion to the acrylic while creating an illusion that your art is suspended in the frame without touching it. On any given standard frame, choose to add spacers just before check-out. They look great when using a mat, using a white border or full bleed framing. They add depth to the artwork or photography and makes them more interesting.
STANDARD OPTIONS FOR CANVAS PRINTS
Gallery Framing, flush or recessed
We typically make the canvas and the face of the frame be flush.
You can request that the canvas be recessed by 1/4 or 1/2 an inch.
Canvas prints framed inside a shadowbox
Create beautiful and unique works of art using the frame of your choice. Your choice of artwork will be printed on high quality 100% cotton low sheen satin canvas and then framed and stretched on a canvas with a choice of a natural wrap or a black painted edge and then placed in a shadowbox with your choice of frame. You can also choose to apply an optional textured varnish on the canvas surface.
Bespoke colors, based on Pantone hues or Benjamin Moore Paint colors
The Picturalist can worked under supervision of interior designers and project managers, to turn existing artwork by our licensed artists, into customized pieces of art to suit your design color palettes.
Based on the color chips or Pantone codes you send us, we can transform existing pieces into your bespoke artwork designed for your rooms.
Here is an example of a change in colors we did for a renowned Washington DC based interior designer:
Below is the original artwork with its original colors.
This is the artwork after the color matching to specific Pantone colors:
