Picture Frames: It's time to dig out that diploma or that old photo of grandma you've been meaning to frame for years. Items that have sentimental, monetary, or unique aesthetic value should most certainly find a place on the wall. No more thumbtacks - get a proper frame!
There are a couple reasons why it is a good idea to use picture frames to frame artwork, photos or items that are important to you:
Picture Frame Protection: Your artwork will be safe, making it look good and last much longer. Framed art is less likely to become soiled, wrinkled, or bent than if it were stored loose somewhere. And you can have peace of mind knowing your special items are well treated and accounted for.
Picture Frame Display: What better way to show off the certificate you earned or a painting you bought at an auction. Picture framing can creatively showcase your piece's best features. It will draw the eye to the image, create a sense of importance, and undoubtedly impress your friends!
Select a picture frame that's right for you.
Choosing the right picture frame depends on the subject matter, colors and mood of your art. If you pay attention to these elements, you should have an idea what style frame is appropriate for your piece. The frame should work with the image, staying consistent with the theme and significance. If the art itself isn't giving you any hints for which frame to pick, decide where it will hang and let elements from the room lead you in the right direction.
You can use a picture frame for almost anything. From one-of-a-kind objects such as framed autographed jerseys, framed wedding mementos and framed awards to framed original paintings, framed drawings, and even framed puzzles The possibilities of picture framing are endless!
