Whether it’s fine paintings or sentimental family photos, everyone has art they want to display in their home. Here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we want to help you make each piece in your personal collection look its best, and the most effective way to do that is with our custom frames. In this article, we’ll go over some of the reasons why custom frames are the best way to display your art.
- One reason that custom frames are better than pre-fabricated ones is that they are better for preserving the artwork inside. If you are framing a one-of-a-kind painting or an antique family photo, you naturally want it to last as long as possible and placing them in cheap frames can make that harder. Many cheap framing materials have been known to cause yellowing in photos due to the acid content leaching into the paper. The custom frames that we offer here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design will keep your artwork safe from this hazard.
- Nontraditional Sizing. Another benefit of custom frames is that they do not force you to conform to standard sizing. Like most mass-produced products, factory-made photo frames are made in a limited range of sizes, which makes it a challenge to display anything of a nonstandard size or shape. No matter what item you want to display, our team can create a custom frame to accommodate it perfectly.
- Complementary Design. A third advantage of custom frames is that you can use them to complement and enhance the art inside. For instance, most store-bought frames have either no mat board, or mat boards in plain black and white, which means that you can’t use that element to show your art off to its best effect. With our custom frames, you can choose the right mat and frame to make the colors in the piece pop, extend a visual motif, etc. Our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design will work with you through every step to create a frame that truly ties your display together.
