Picture Framing Tips

Many people feel picture framing is an intricate and time consuming task.  We want you to know that it doesn’t always have to be!  We know often times the endless amounts of matting, framing, and glass options, picture framing can be overwhelming.  Based on the outcome you’re looking for though, there a few tips and tricks you can follow to make picture framing easier.

The picture frame should complement the image it is housing as well as the space where it’s hung. If you’re hanging artwork in a modern looking room then you’d want to avoid using an oddly shaped frame. On the other spectrum, if the room has a more classic feel, then the best advice would be to stay away from shiny, polished metal or modern looking picture frames.

Color picture frames can be instrumental in bringing your artwork to life. Choosing a white picture frame or a gold picture frame is a guaranteed way to make your art pop, you just have to be mindful not to select a frame that clashes with what’s being hung.

The type of picture frame you opt for is just as important as your color selection. Wood picture frames are the most popular and traditional frames due to their versatility. Wood can be stained in a variety of colors and already come in various themes such as the rustic wood frames or the driftwood picture frames. On the other end of the spectrum, metal picture frames are more practical based on their material and tend to last a lot longer.

Be aware of how you hang your pictures:

  • Frames ideally should be hung at eye level, not too high and not too low, about 60 inches (or 5 feet) above the ground.
  • When hanging a picture above a table you want to leave 4-8 inches of space between the bottom of the picture frame and the top of the table.
  • If you’re hanging a picture frame above a couch or other piece of furniture there should be a 3-6 inch space between the furniture and the picture frame.
  • Try to avoid hanging your artwork in direct sunlight. The purpose of framing art is to make it look nice and protect it, sunlight and moisture are detrimental to this.
  • Place your framing wire as close to the top of the picture frame as you can. Doing this helps keep your picture flat against the wall by raising the pictures center of gravity.

When choosing a mat for your artwork, the basic principle is that the mat should be lighter than the artwork or picture but darker than the wall. The mat is there to provide visual space between your picture, the frame and the wall. People often make the mistake of getting too fancy when choosing a mat which in turn takes away from the artwork.

Put these tips into action when framing your next picture and find out how easy picture framing really is. If you have any questions, we over here at Frame USA would be more than happy to assist you. Good luck on your next project.

Entertainment Weekly’s July 22, 2016 issue rates BoJack Horseman an A and their website chose it as Pick of the Night for its release on July 22 to binge watch. In this same print issue, BoJack Horseman makes The Must List (a list of top 10 things Entertainment Weekly loves this week) for TV, saying “brutal cynicism, devastating poignance, and animal puns ensue.”

According to a July 27, 2016 article in Business Insider, Rotten Tomatoes has confirmed with them that BoJack Horseman has “the highest rating of any show released this summer”. Bojack season 3 also has a 100% review on Rotten Tomatoes, a popular film review aggregator.

The Perfect Poster Frame

When looking for the perfect poster frame there are many things you can keep in mind.  First, all of our sizes on www.frameusa.com are the inside dimensions/your poster size.  Therefore, if you have a 24×36 poster, you need a 24×36 poster frame.  Keep in mind, that all frames, no matter the type or style of frame, will overlap your poster slightly.  This is what keeps the poster from falling through the front of the frame.

 

Here are our top 3 poster frame options:

 

A few helpful hints:

  • The most common poster frame size is a 24×36 posterframe. Budget Saver Poster Frame
  • A typical movie poster is 27×40, so you would need a 27×40 posterframe.
  • All frames can be used to frame posters, no matter the type or style.
  • An 11×17 poster frame is great to frame a poster for a child’s room or office.

Guest Blog: Horsing around with Hillary

My first day horse 2 of high school I became friends with a girl who was taking horseback riding lessons. My mom agreed to let me take lessons with her which I was so excited about because I had always loved horses! I took lessons for a couple of months when one day my mom surprised me with my very own horse. Her name was Gracie, I instantly fell in love and knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to join my trainer’s 4-H group and show Gracie at the county fair.

 

Gracie wasn’t like the horses I had been taking lessons on. Instead of being a bomb proof, beginner horse she was stubborn. I started to get horse 6 discouraged because she just wouldn’t listen to me. I’d steer her one way and she would walk the other way. It was time for my very first show, the butler county fair. It was awful, I placed 8th and 10th out of 10 riders. At this point I was ready to give up, but then I realized something, these girls I was showing against had been doing this for years. It wasn’t easy, showing/training horses it is a lot of work. I had only been riding for 9 months. I told myself that I could do it. I would place first and get a blue ribbon. I went to the barn and rode every single day. I was horse 5 determined to train Gracie myself. I wanted bragging rights in the show ring. Over the next few years I grew better and better, and then finally it happened I beat all of the girls who had been teasing me and showing me up in the ring. I was finally one of them, the unbeatable. And I had done it all by myself (with some help from my awesome show mom). Gracie is my best friend. I know it sounds silly but she’s there all of the time for me. In the show ring and at home. She knows that she has a job to do and since I horse 3 have gained her trust and respect she will go above and beyond to please me. This is what I love about my hobby. I will always have that one person, well a horse in this situation whom I can always go to when I am down. Gracie has carried me (literally and figuratively) through the last 11 years and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. We are both equally sassy and compassionate. horse 1

Rustic Blue Picture Frame

Colorful Frames

It’s easy to find white frames and black frames, any store with crafting supplies or knick knacks will have those. Where do you go, though, if you’re looking for something in a blue, or yellow? When you want colorful picture frames, Frame USA has a number of series that come in multiple colors including some very bright choices.

When it’s bright cheery colors you’re looking for, our Colori series of wood wood picture frames is going to be a great choice. The Colori series has a medium and a large profile and comes in 7 bold colors; white, black, red, green, blue yellow and orange. These are ideal in rooms where you want to entertain, or in kids’ rooms

Dark red, dark blue, dark brown, light brown, black and white are all available.
