If you want your artwork to truly shine, it's important to choose the right frame. A frame doesn't just protect your picture, it also enhances the image itself. But with so many options available, how do you choose the perfect frame?
First, consider the color and finish of the frame. This can be a great way to emphasize the image and showcase your personal style. You can even match the frame to your interior décor. Take some time to consider the overall look of your space before you make a choice.
Next, think about the width of the frame. A wide frame might overwhelm a small picture, while a narrow frame won't be bold enough for a large image. Choose a width that complements the style and size of the artwork.
We use this type of frame with archival and photographic paper where prints are covered by our unbreakable acrylic glass.
This solid, smooth black frame is sleek and stylish - a classic choice for photography and graphic art prints.
Our solid, smooth white finish is perfect for contemporary art and photographic prints with a minimalist look.
A natural hand finished maple frame is a classic and tasteful choice that works particularly well with paintings by museum masters. Maple also provides a beautiful surround for bright contemporary prints, giving modern pieces a timeless appeal.
ANTIQUE GOLD LEAF
Gold leaf frames provide a rich museum look that often times serves as a perfect way to integrate the finish of furniture in interior design. We offer frames in gold that offer a warm metal tone without being too ornate for a perfect classic contemporary look.
BLACK & GOLD EDGE
When only a small gold accent is needed, this slim black wooden frame adds a touch of luxe without being traditional.
This frame has a very contemporary look as the face of the frame is only a quarter inch
so it appears as a skinny frame when looked face to face, but has depth of 1 3/8 inches.
THIN BLACK METAL
When used in a Shadowbox style frame, the elements will be placed as in the profile below:
Have you ever heard of a shadowbox? It's a special way to display a paper print where the artwork is floated, meaning it appears to be floating inside a box. The back and edges of this box are lined with a a white mat. You can even customize the colors through our customizable program.
To create a sense of depth and a "shadow" effect around the art print, a foamboard surface that is 2 inches smaller than the print is placed between the mat and the print.
You also have the option to order the edge of the art print to be torn, which is called deckled, or you can order it straight. To give you a better idea of how it works, check out the drawing below that shows the different layers of a shadowbox where the art prints are raised.
THIN METAL FRAME FOR A SHADOWBOX (1/4 Inch Face)
WOODEN FRAMES USED FOR A SHADOWBOX
The following frames are deep and have a face of 1 1/18 inches
They have plenty of depth to house the different layers needed to create the sense of depth, and a raised art print.
When presented as a shadowbox, matching mats are used to line the sides and the back of the 'box' where the raised art print, is placed, on a smaller foamboard.
This is an example of a shadowbox with a gold leaf frame and a deckled edge print
(a linen mat was used in this particular example).
