The title of this post is a bit misleading, as (in my opinion), framing your art is anything but fun! I’ve always tried to go the budget route… tracking down my frames + mats on Amazon or at my local art store… but something inevitably goes wrong. The mat usually ends up being just a quarter of an inch too small… the artwork keeps sliding out from under the mat, or – the worst – despite my best measuring efforts, everything just ends up being so much bigger (or smaller!) than I anticipate and I have to start over from scratch.
I recently discovered a service called Framebridge and instantly got hooked. They make framing your art so easy, allowing you to focus on the part that is actually fun… hanging your art or creating a gallery wall! You simply upload your art or plug in the dimensions, choose your frames + mats (and it will show you how everything will look.) A few days after you place your order, a package will arrive for you to send them your art (or you can upload the art files directly, if you have them.) Pop your art in the mail, and in a couple weeks, your art makes its way back to you… beautifully framed.
These prints are from my beloved friend Aly’s print shop… I love how nice they look in their new frames. Naturally, I hung them above my bar cart.
Another really cool function is their Instagram printing service! This makes the process even easier- log in with Instagram, choose which ones you want to print, and then select your frames. (Such an incredible gift idea – and the framed Instagram prints are only $39, which I think is very reasonable.)
