Floater Frames

Floater Frames and Our New Print-On-Demand Service

Floater Frames for Canvas Prints

Frame USA has recently added to our growing list of services an Amazon.com print-on-demand site. As we mentioned in our recent blog post here, this meant adding a new large format printer to our team in order to increase our productivity.

We offer a huge selection of beautiful art prints and photography that we can now quickly print on high quality canvas. One of the most popular ways our customers choose to have their canvas prints displayed is with our floater frames.

Floater Frames

We stretch the canvas over the floater frames, which gives a sleek and clean look to your art prints. Since the frame is underneath the art, there are no distractions and the image is completely visible! Floater frames make it easy to hang art in your home with a professional look. Many artists and photographers even use floater frames to display their original work.

Using a floater frame for prints or artwork also adds a three dimensional look to the piece. Floater frames get their name from the illusion of floating that they create. The extra dimension it gives your art will really make anyone viewing it even more interested!

Visit our amazon store here to purchase art prints displayed on floater frames, or to get a floater frame for your own artwork visit the floater frame section of our website here.

Artist Spotlight: Ali Güleç

Frame USA‘s sister company Posterservice Inc. is excited to be working with artist and illustrator Ali Güleç, based out of Istanbul, Turkey. Our posters by Ali are a series of decorative skull illustrations that combine beauty with macabre. Ali works using both traditional drawing mediums and digital images to create his designs.

Our most recent poster designed by Ali Güleç is titled “Bloom Skull”. This piece shows a beautiful juxtaposition of life and death. Though the overall composition is of a skull, suggesting a more macabre theme, the skull is made entirely of flowers and plants fully alive and in bloom. The illustration has dark undertones, but also has an over all delicate and decorative aesthetic that makes for perfect wall decor.

Hanging Picture Frames

Hanging Picture Frames The Frame USA Way

Tips for Hanging Picture Frames

Even though Frame USA specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of picture frames, we’ll be the first to admit that not every piece of artwork calls for a frame. Many contemporary pieces are meant to display alone, or with a minimal floater frame. You should ideally use a frame any time you do not have a canvas, or when the art work can’t be displayed on its own.

Some artist simply mat their artwork while others will buy a frame in the correct size for their piece. Custom framing is another option, but the concept remains the same — don’t let the framing overpower the artwork. The frame you choose should add to the art or simply make it easier to display, not distract from the artwork.

As another precaution, don’t frame a piece of art for the sole purpose of matching a room. Art can be arranged in any which way, whereas a room can undergo many changes over time.

Once you’ve decided on the proper frame for your art, the next step is frame hanging! When hanging picture frames you want to aim for the average eye-level to get the best reaction. Meaning once the framed artwork is on the wall, you should be able to stand in front of the piece with your head level, your gaze should fall just about in the center or just below the center of the artwork.  Art is meant to be viewed and appreciated, and won’t have quite the same effect unless it’s easily viable.

Hanging Picture Frames

When selecting what kind of frame hanging accessories to use; you must take into consideration a few things. First, you need to thing about what the type of material the wall you are hanging frames on is made out of. This is important because you need to get picture frame accessories appropriate for that type of material.

The second thing to consider is how heavy your artwork is. Most frame hanging accessories have sizes designed for certain pound ranges. Select one rated for the picture frame you intend to hang.  If in doubt, go for a stronger hanger! It’s better for your hanger to be too strong than not strong enough and have your framed art fall off your wall.

Now is time for the best part, stand back and enjoy your framed art!

The frame around a picture or a piece of art is a terribly underrated portion of your artwork. A picture frame is often as crucial an element as the artwork itself, being that it houses said art and will affect how people take in your work. Color picture frames can be instrumental in bringing artwork to life! Our Pop Art Picture Frames are a fantastic choice for when you’re looking for a brightly colored frame to electrify your art.

Creating a Picture Wall Gallery

When displaying pictures, a picture wall is a trendy and creative way memorialize your artwork and photos. Crafting a diverse assortment of images for your picture wall can be a little difficult when you’re trying to decipher where to begin and how to balance the layout and sizes of the image to create something ascetically pleasing.

Simply hanging a few pictures on a wall can be dull, picture walls are a fun way to bring your living space to life with art. When creating a photo wall gallery you want to try and have the center of your exhibit eye level. Ideally, most frames should be hung at eye level, about 60 inches (or five feet) off the ground, but when working with a wall display you mainly want eye level to be the focal point of your photo wall.

When deciding on the frames for your picture wall you want to have some sense of unity in your display. You want to use a similar style of frames, for example, you don’t want to mix metal frames and wood picture frames just like you wouldn’t want to mix a modern style of frame with an ornate picture frame. But, you do want to vary the size of the picture frames you select. Having all the frames the same size will leave you with an extremely bland photo wall.

These creative ideas are a great resource to use to give you a starting point.  Once you get arranging, expand or tweak the layout to fit the photos you have. Sometimes it’s boring to display just 1 or 2 pictures on a wall, be adventurous and create a picture wall. Picture Walls are much more interesting and a way to tell a story with your photos.
