Photography has different markets and framing for your photographs have different suppliers. Some frame suppliers cater to trades such as artist organisations; some cater to supplying framing components. Others provide the full professional framing service including PDF proofs, try before you buy options, which can include sending frame moulding profiles by post before you proceed to place an order.
Most of us are walking around with personal libraries of treasured prints on our smartphones that would make for ideal gifts. The only thing you need to figure out to get your photos from pixels to print is how to do just that, without the output becoming a pixeled mess.
Most prints are hung on the wall in a stationary position used only for display purposes. It is, after all, the whole point of hanging art and personal photos on your walls.
But, for stretched canvas prints or even shadow box frames that have deeper recesses behind the frame, those can be a good depth to give you some storage space for items behind the print.
When you’re putting your home on the market, most advice centres around depersonalisation - making your home into a space that potential buyers can imagine themselves living in. For most families, that’s going to mean swapping a lot of oversized framed family photos such as christening collage frames, wedding photos and holiday snaps.
Frames are the one thing in your home that shouldn’t be cleaned very often. Dusting, yes, but you don’t need to have your frames on your weekly cleaning schedule.
The reason is that provided they’re hung at eye level; they shouldn’t be getting fingerprints on the glazing. What they will do is accumulate dust. You can easily take care of that with a feather duster or a dry cloth.
Changing the mounts that are inside your picture frames are a quick way to alter their appearance without reframing your photos. It’s handy for when you’ve changed the colour scheme of a room or even for photographers trying their hand at framing portfolio pieces.
Everyone has their down days, and some of us have things we do to lift our moods, get our positivity back and motivate ourselves to push onwards towards our goals.
Some turn to comedy, knowing that science has proven laughter’s an excellent medicine; others are able to lift their spirit with the simplest of smiles.
As the night’s get darker, days seem longer and the summer months of garden parties have become a distant memory, the majority of our days after work are spent indoors, with the family in the sitting room around the television.
Home décor can be enhanced by getting creative with your wall displays. Frames are generally described as picture or photo frames, but in terms of using them for artistic displays, there’s so much more you can do than only displaying your best collections of photographs.
Businesses commonly put a variety of framed prints on display in their reception area, along long walls like hallways in the break room and within the offices of staff to display things such as their own certifications and achievements.
