Models of picture frames we have on stock : Poster: If you buy a picture that is larger than normal or a poster and want to hang it on the wall, then you have a few choices. While some people will simply stick the poster onto the wall with glue or tape, a much better option is a poster-size picture frame. Not only does this make the poster look more finished and high-quality but it is much less likely to accidentally damage your walls in the process. They often come with different width frames, making it easy to choose one that will set off your poster and make it pop.
Display : These picture frames have a piece in the back that will pop out and allow the frame to stand upright on a table. This makes them perfect for when you want to display your photographs out in the open, on a side table, or on top of a chest of drawers. They are not ideal for hanging on the wall as the piece in the back will make it almost impossible for the frame to hang flush against the wall and they will be very easily knocked off. When looking for a tabletop frame, make sure that you like the degree at which it leans as it is almost impossible to change this. Some frames come with adjustable backs so you can choose how upright you want the frame to be but most do not have this option. Shape : Round picture frames are a great way to draw a lot of attention to the art or the photograph that you are displaying because they are so visually interesting and not commonly found. When choosing a round picture frame, make sure that you like the material that the frame is made out of and that you feel as if it will work with your photograph; otherwise, the end result will feel disconnected. Round frames come in all sizes.
For gallery quality art, which is what we currently focus on, we wouldn’t consider the direct print method as it leads to inferior results in terms of color accuracy, vibrancy as well as permanence (color fading). We believe for fine art applications photos were meant to be printed on paper and produced at the highest quality. See extra info on Metal prints.
Materials: There are a few types of frames that are more gorgeous than a crystal frame. These sparkles and shine and will make any photograph that you choose to put inside appear even more gorgeous. They are a great choice if you want to showcase a particularly lovely or important picture, such as one from a wedding or of the first grandchild. A high-quality crystal picture frame makes for a lovely gift.
As Eric Von Lehmden writes in The Canvas Press, photographers have been printing on metal practically since the invention of photography. Early photographs were printed on metal and called “tintypes.” These days, printing on metal, a process called dye-sublimation, is a little more high-tech, and yields a much more vivid, beautiful result.
Here’s how it all happens: before the process begins, your photograph will be inspected for any imperfections. Then, your picture will be printed onto heat transfer paper, made specifically for the dye-sublimation process. At this point, the image on the heat transfer would look like a transparent, desaturated version of your original image.
When presenting your work to your clients, you have to be sure that everything is right – the quality of the print, the paper, the frame design, and the frame construction.
