How to frame your Artwork.
Updated: Nov 25, 2021
So, you've bought a new piece of art for yourself or as a special gift, but now you need a frame.
Don't panic, I've put together some suggestions for you.
You'll be pleased to hear that with my artwork being black and white, really any colour frame will do. Neutral colours such as black, white, grey and gold all work very well with my artwork. Many homeware stores will do a selection of basic frames. I would suggest visiting in person rather then online so that you can see the sizes for yourself and measure up to your artwork. Some of these frames will have a border build in too, if that's the case then choosing a size up from your artwork would be advised.
My print sizes are all mentioned in each product page of my Shop however here are the sizes again for you;
A4 - 21 x 29.5cm
A5 14.5cm x 21
A1 59.4 x 84.1cm
A2 42.0 x 59.4cm
A3 29.7 x 42.0 cm
If you simply don't feel comfortable framing the artwork yourself, there are a number of brilliant local framers and independent businesses that have their own framing companies that you can use. Simply search for these online in your local area with as much detail as possible and an array of options should come up for you.
Most framers will suggest what border colour you wish to use for your print, what frame and glass finish and with my art being black and white, you really can explore most colours.
Here are a few examples of my framed artwork for inspiration;
To those of you that haven't sent through a picture of your framed artwork yet, please do so, I would so love to see the final finish on your walls and repost onto my socials as a thank you!
