StockPhotoSet Wednesday - Sweet Summer Batch #4

As summer continues to roll, I bet you've got some loads of pictures on your camera from your travels! But what to do with those awesome photos?

Print it on Canvas!

Printing on canvas is one of the best ways to commemorate a photo! Its deeply pigmented inks bring warmth and lustre to photographs, and the UV coating protects the colors from fading (and keeps it easy to dust). It's lightweight and transportable. Best of all, the canvas's woven texture hides imperfections that can be captured by phone cameras on the go - so those Samsung photos can be blown up bigger than you think!

Print on Paper + Frame 

This is a more traditional route to go - but why not print out all your favorite polaroids and string them from a frame with flair? 

And if you prefer to keep the photographs protected, shielding them with plexi will keep the memories safely intact for years to come.

Plaque-Mount It

What exactly is plaque-mounting? Well, plaque-mounting is the process of printing your file onto paper, mounting it on wood, and then sealing it with a lush, satin-matte laminate. The result is super vibrant colors and the image sealed and protected, without the heaviness of a plexiglass or frame. With so many different choices for edges, your photo can stand alone as an art piece in of itself!

You can also plaque mount other paper-goods, not just images. Why not plaque-mount a map from where you've been, and mark it as you go? The matte-laminate makes writing and scrawling memories and notes a breeze.

We'll stop it at these three choices for today! In the meantime, here are some new hi-res photos to inspire you:

Frame Features - Leaf Palazzo Collection

Big news everyone! For the first time ever, we have short videos showcasing our many frame styles! Now you'll be able to see the size, shape and color on your screen better - without having to receive a chip sample!

Here's our very first video, featuring the Leaf Palazzo Collection:

The Leaf Palazzo frames measure 2-3/4" wide, with a 1/2" rabbet/depth. Made from wood, this ornate, intricate frame features a bold relief design in antique foil finish, while being lightweight. Its matte, black-mottled texture and antiquing makes it a perfect frame for statement piece for home-decor, interior design, and showrooms. 

Excellent complimentary frame for oil paintings and bold, abstract artworks. Make sure to select an artwork that is not too overly complicated with details, as it may compete with the decadence of the frame.


The Leaf Palazzo frame collection comes in gold, silver, silver-black and black. We can make them in custom-sizes to fit any wall space or mantle, around any original piece of work. Add a sheet of mirror from the hardware store and you've got yourself a stunning hallway mirror with a touch of old Versailles! Give a call or email today, and stay tuned for our next Frame Feature video!

Wonderful Wedding Gift and Decor Ideas

As the sun rolls out and we're seeing all this beautiful weather, there's something else beautiful we're seeing too - many beautiful brides getting married!

If you're still looking for some last minute touches for your receptions, here are some artistic ideas we've seen our brides order:

Canvas prints

This is a classic staple. usually engagement photos are ordered for these, to showcase by the doors as guests come in. Sometimes couples ask them to sign it as well!

Plaque mounts

Plaque mounts make for a great way for signing, rather than an album book. Smooth and durable, it is easy to write on and the sharpie ink will not bleed. Plaque mounts are also great for certificates - why not preserve your marriage certificate permanently by mounting it within a plaque?



TextArt in Frames


Sometimes you want to just sum up what you and your beau are all about, and the things that keep you two together. We also do TextArt designs - just send us the words you're looking to have written, personalized just for you, and we can design it for you. We can also frame it! A poetic way to commemorate your togetherhood.

Idea Corner #2 - Easy-to-Interchange Art Frame

Hello everyone! Here's another segment of our Idea Corner Series!

If you're anything like me, you probably have tons of motivational images saved on your computer, or perhaps sitting in a drawer. Whenever I see one in stores, I'm always itching to buy it, but the issue is - where to put it up? I'm running out of wall space, but I still want to be motivated. What to do?

Of course, I could always change a print in a frame. Except, I never like dealing with the fiddly parts on the back, or risk getting scratched by the glass in some frames, or the sharp corners of the tabs in store-bought versions. Then I got to thinking - if I could front-load them somehow, that would save so much time and hassle. It's okay if it didn't have plexi - after all, posters aren't archival quality, and wouldn't need preservation.  Then I could change my posters frequently!

So here is our newest addition to the Idea Corner Series - a corkboard fitted into a floater frame, using magnets! The open corkboard allows you to pin and change art at ease, and the magnets make it easy for you to detach and reattach to the frame - in literally, a snap.


The steps to make this are super easy. First, all you need is the following - some magnets from the dollar store, some double-sided sticky tape, and your floater frame (with hanging hardware), and a sheet of cork foamboard. I used GB24, the Gold-Leaf 3/4" deep Canvas Floater Frame.

 



The next step is to used the double-sided sticky tape, and glue all the magnets into the top corners. Use the same sticky tape to glue the complimentary magnets in the same corners on the back of the foam-board.



And that's it! Pin your artwork to the corkboard, and hover it over the frame. The magnets should sense their partner and the corkboard will snap in place. Now you can interchange your posters without even having to take the frame off the wall. Enjoy!




Looking to start your DIY interchangeable frame today? Head on over to our custom frame section and select a canvas floater. Remember to click that you'd like cork foamboard as well from the drop down-menu!
