How to Choose a Frame for your Photos

I have some lovely bits of info to share about how to choose a frame for your photos. It is Autumn again, as if all that rain hasn’t told you already. I am off to photograph some beautiful Autumn places in the school holidays. So I hope to keep you updated as that rolls around too.

Limited Edition Prints Frames

If you have your eye on one of our Limited Edition Prints, and would like one as a gift, it’s never too early to drop the hints to your family on this. However, if you would like a Landscape Photo in a beautiful frame by Mother’s Day, I suggest spreading the word today. We need at least 4 weeks to print and frame the image, preferably a buffer of 6, in case the Lab has delays. Mother’s Day is the 14th of May, which is actually much sooner than we think.

When it comes to choosing a frame for your photo, I like to break it down into a few simple steps.

  1. Choose your size. This will be dependent on your room. Some big white walls will ask for a large image, whereas, if you have lots of windows, then you might be only able to fit a smaller size photo. If you choose a Facemount Acrylic, I recommend going one size larger, as the print will not be surrounded by a matt and frame.
  2. Choose your own frame. We have kept this simple, so the artwork is all about the image, not the frame. The frame is there to enhance the photo. We have a gorgeous selection of frames so many images to fall in love with. You can see the wooden moulding colours in the above Featured Image.

    All our frames will suit virtually all of our photos, so it is really choosing a frame that will match your existing decor, or a colour you might be looking for to use as a starting point for decorating your interior.
    Image sizes range from 12″ – 75″ in length. The frame will add approximately 10-15cm on either side of the photo, as this includes the Matt and the Wooden Moulding.

Thursdays Mornings and Sunday Afternoons generally work best, but I am flexible if you need another time.

It’s not a fancy lounge room, but it’s our home. And you can guess what the one feature in our lounge room is that really completes the room? It just wouldn’t be the same without this colourful landscape on the wall. We love this photo of Austinmer. This 75″ image is facemounted onto Acrylic, and looks modern, yet completely timeless.

I hope all of this information helps you. We are continually trying to provide more information on our website, and make processes more automated, but if you have any questions, or would prefer placing an order directly through me, I am always here to help.
