I've always maintained that learning to custom frame is an essential skill and our company is committed to teaching how to frame correctly. This can mean different things depending on the purpose of the frame treatment, the preferred style of framing or decor, and the budget set for the particular project. We all have art we need to frame and very few of us draw, paint or photograph in standard sizes. Framing is simple and so satisfying with significant cost benefits (around 75% over retail chains). Armed with the knowledge in DIY Framing FunDaMentals, you can choose to design and frame your own work, retaining 100% control over the project or collaborate with a professional framer as an educated consumer.
DIY Framing FunDaMentals illustrates how people can not only frame art, they can influence it. Custom framing isn’t just about the right size frame. It’s also about interacting with the image. Cropping the image with the use of a mat, or influencing the viewer’s impression by choosing bold or neutral framing treatments are just two of the opportunities of custom framing. Everything is up for grabs, and for art lovers who thrive on individuality, that’s definitely good news.
