Frequently asked Questions:
Are there specific ways certain prints need to be framed?
Surprisingly, there can be 5 or more different ways that you can custom frame the same print. However, there isn’t a “right” or “wrong” way to choose colors or styles. We will always help you decide from our hundreds of options.
Can a metal or wood frame be too large or too small for a piece of art?
Frame size is determined as much by the subject and style of a piece of art as it is by the size of the art. Coloration and finish of a frame can be more powerful visually than size. As you look through a selection of samples you will begin to see when a certain size begins to feel comfortable.
