Print Placement - Where will your print be hung?

When considering the color selection of your gallery frame, it's important to evaluate the goals you have for its placement in the chosen surroundings. We are inspired by art that creates a special feeling in the space—it has soul, depth, love, and makes an impression. What do you want yours to achieve? Is your image oriented towards a soothing, serene, and dreamy atmosphere, or is it a bold, daring statement piece?

Size - What size do you want?

Now that you’ve decided where your print will be hung, choosing the proper size of your artwork is the next logical step. Is your image a part of a larger gallery wall series, or is it a meaningful stand alone image with its own impact? Small-scale or grand, all sizes make their own unique impression. Determining these factors will set the tone for your desired sizing and more.

Color - What color best compliments the print? Your decor?

When aiming for a calm, clean feel, the white frames are a nice complement, while a strong and dramatic mood thrives in black. Warmth and neutrality are highlighted with the natural wood gallery frame that exudes an organic, even-tone versatile to many shades. These questions will help you understand and determine if the white, black, or natural wood color option is superior for you.

Mat or No Mat?  - Bold & Modern or Fine Art & Classic

When deciding whether to pair your image(s) with a mat or not, decide on the overall feel you would like to achieve. Full-bleed prints (the no mat option) create a strong and modern feel, with the print going all the way to the edge of the frame. Alternatively, if you’re seeking a softer feel, adding a mat creates visual space for the eyes to breathe with classy gallery-inspired fine art feel.
