We make picture frames of so many sizes, shapes, and colors it can get overwhelming. So in the next few blogs we are going to break it down to make designing creative picture frames easier.
Starting with one of our unique features many other framing companies do not offer - PRINTS! Adding prints to a frame is rather uncommon. You have seen many of the old school traditional frames with gold leafing and crazy awesome mill work, but lets face it, as beautiful as those frames can be they are incredibly expensive and if you don't live in the Taj Mahal then they most likely don't fit with your decor. What you want is something that fits your home just right but also has that flare that represents your personality.
We have a ton of prints available in our shop and all of those prints can be used with your choice of custom color, size and shape frame. If we don't have a print you are looking for, let us know. We have the ability to cut stencils of any pattern. You can send us a picture and we can make it a print and put it on your frame! Pretty fancy!
Choosing a print doesn't have to be difficult. What do you like? If the print is most important to you choose that first! The frame can be designed around the print so everything fits together. Simple trims often pair well with 'louder' prints. But if you want to have all the bells and whistles use muted colors. A loud print won't appear so loud if the colors are in the same family. Adding contrast between the two will give that va va voom and really make the print pop out.
Choose a print that suits your home decor. If you are hip with the times a chevron print is so hot right now and will definitely suit your fancy. If you like that traditional look a damask gives that fancy gold leaf feeling. Or choose a more geometric print with a moroccan or nagoya pattern. A timeless favorite is stripes, and you can even get fancy with those. Choose different color stripes or different widths, both will add a different dynamic to your frame.
There are too many fun options when it comes to prints! No wonder it is so overwhelming! And we haven't even started discussing the endless color options!
