My Favourite Framing Hack

My Favourite Framing Hack

We don't all have the budget for custom framing. I get that - so you will love my favourite framing hack!

I do get so many questions about framing so I wanted to give you a little insight.

There really is nothing like a professionally framed piece of art or art print. Always the best and simplest option is to get your art or print professionally framed.
You will have the choice of frame colour, matt colour and size. It's a set and forget, all looked after type of scenario.
And it arrives, ready to hang.
Most of my Original Art comes framed, however I do have paper prints available unframed. If you are in Australia and don't want the hassle of searching for a framer, I can arrange framing on request.
Purchase a pre-made frame and frame it yourself. If you have purchased one of my prints, then it should be pretty easy to find one. All my prints are in standard sizes and have white borders. So all you need is a frame the exact size of your print, and it will look top notch. 
The hardest part with this is to choose your colour - black, white, oak, or something else? My favourite at the moment is oak, I just love how it sets off the artwork without taking your eye away from it. And it doesn't matter if your home decor style is modern boho, traditional, contemporary or Hamptons, an oak frame can suit. 
HERE IS THE HACK if you have an unusual size print or art piece.
If you are purchasing original unstretched art - or if you want something different than a standard frame for your print then it's not going to fit nicely in a standard frame.
Soooooo, find yourself a pre made frame bigger than your artwork and have a matt custom made to fit around the edges.
Make sure you allow enough room for a decent size matt. To get a custom matt made is very reasonably priced, and a clever way to get the best of both worlds.


I hope my favourite framing hack helps you in some way. If you have any further questions, comment below or send me a message and I will see if I can help.
