Are you torn between the timeless elegance of wooden picture frames and the sleek modernity of metal frames? Choosing the right frame for your artwork or photos is no easy task. The debate between wood and metal frames has raged on for years, with proponents on both sides passionately defending their preferences.
The question of whether art needs to be framed is often raised. It can be by artists themselves, and their customers, by people interested in using prints for home décor, or by interior designers and consultants.
If there’s ever an art medium that artists could help their customers with more, it’s the framing of watercolour paintings. A task that is so easy to get the balance wrong, resulting in the frame, or the components of it overpowering the work, detracting from the viewing pleasure perceived in earlier viewings.
When it comes to displaying canvas artwork, two common options stand out: stretching the canvas over a wooden frame or mounting it on board. Each method has its pros and cons. The choice between stretching or mounting has an impact on the finished presentation of canvas prints and paintings.
If you have a rolled canvas, you have options, each of which are important considerations.
Do you dream of the day you finally transform a bland space into a stunning picture gallery wall? The sizes and layout for the display hold the key!
Just a few photos to display requires a decision to be made on how to present them in their best light.
Is your wall décor looking flat and uninspiring? Mount board may be the secret ingredient to change your framed wall art and treasured photos into an immersive viewing experience.
Do you have old photos that you want to show their age with deep colours and a textured finish? Printing to canvas could be the way to go. And you may be able to do it yourself with a standard inkjet printer.
Photo frames have multiple purposes. One of the more popular uses is to preserve milestones such as achievement certificates and other certifications and to make them presentable.
Getting a story published in a regional or national newspaper is worthy of a memento. How long it lasts and how good the quality is preserved for depends on how it is printed and framed.
