Any print can be framed, but it’s not always easy as frames are generally made to uniform sizes. When you have a print that doesn’t conform to the norm, and you really want it framed to put on display, you’ll likely be dismayed when you find out the price of custom framing. Whilst taking it to an experienced framer will get you professional results, it’s not always the case that you can justify the cost of a made-to-measure frame.
The family home is filled with memories, and that’s not only shown in the photography of kids, grandkids and relatives on the walls, but it’s also the emotion connected to everything around the home. The inherited display cabinet in the hallway, the dining room table perhaps bought at auction and the nursery designed and created by Mums, Dads, Grans and Grandads.
Parents do all they can to baby proof the home. Baby gates, safety sockets, kitchen cabinet locks etc. Not always are the frames around the house considered, yet they can pose a significant risk.
Have you come across an image in your digital library you’d love to print and frame, but you are unsure what size to go for? It’s a fairly common issue because not every size can be printed from any photo.
Standard framing sizes cover various print size options, but what you’re best with depends on where you intend to place the printed photo once it’s framed.
Canvas’s look great on your walls until the peskiest of warps or slightest of sagging causes it to not sit flush with the wall. Instead, it’s clear every time you look at the print that one end tends to be pushed farther from the wall. Not the perfect display you once had, and it gets more annoying every time you notice it.
The bathroom is a tricky room to hang art on the walls due to the high levels of humidity and often increased temperatures when you run a bath or shower, or just run the hot water tap each morning. You’ll know from experience; the room turns into a sauna environment quickly with condensation steaming up your mirrors (unless you use the fog-free mirror type).
Photography and framing don’t have to be two separate issues. There are tips photographers follow that capture remarkable images on camera that then can be transferred to a wall display by applying the same techniques used to capture the image to present it best in your home, office, or bedroom.
The Top 3 Photography Tips to Use for Frame Positioning
The majority of artists have the age-old problem of creating art at a faster rate than they’re able to sell them at. Chances are, if that’s you, you’ll have a range of canvas prints, perhaps even photography, all neatly stored with preservation materials ready to demo at the next gallery, trade fair or exhibition.
Anyone with artistic talent has an advantage when it comes to giving gifts of significance. Gifts that are truly appreciated, understood and respected as pieces to be treasured for life.
Your talent may be photography, or it could be with words by creating personalised poems that resonate deep or maybe pencil sketching pet portraits.
As much as mounts are important to protect paper prints in photo frames, it’s not always the case you want to use a mount board, perhaps feeling an edge-to-edge finish would better suit the photo you’re framing. It should be noted; spacers are not only suited to paper prints. They’re suitable for all types of frameable material, including needlework as the increased space can prevent mould from developing on the thread, which is sometimes referred to as thread rot.
