Fun with Framing.


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.

Annnd, I’m super excited because I have a special offer just for you guys… take 20% off of two+ items with code STRIPESANDSEQUINS. (Expires 2/6)



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.)





Created in partnership with Framebridge.

    Sounds like a great service, especially for printing Instagrams. Framed and Matted I think is a similar service, but this one seems a little more budget-friendly. I love the gold frames.

    Thanks for sharing! I’m always bummed when I find some great prints I want to hang on the wall, but then never get around to it because framing them would cost more than the artwork. Excited about the discount code as well! I was planning to have some things framed for my husband’s birthday coming up and now I’ll get even more bang for my buck : )

    Also, congrats on the new site! I can honestly say, it’s my favorite layout I’ve seen. Yours was the first blog I ever really started following years ago, and you’re still a daily must-read.

    Framing is such a royal pain in the butt. It took 11 months for me to print and frame any pictures. This service will definitely alleviate the horrors of going frame shopping now.

    I love how art and what you frame and put on your wall has become so versatile in the past few years 🙂 So cool you can just send it out and it will get back framed 🙂
