Some of you may not be aware that we also offer custom picture framing here at the shop. It occurred to us that it might be helpful to offer a few framing tips now and then. Along with the tips will come a special promotion to help save you some $$$. We realize that many of you are too far away to take advantage of the specials but hope the tips might be helpful.
Design Tip #1
Mat Border Proportions
Mat border widths change in popularity somewhat like hemlines
on dresses. The current style is the use of wider borders than
the typical borders used 10 or 20 years ago.
Today many people look at mats as an opportunity to add
color to the frame design, but originally mats were neutral in color
and used to provide visual relief between the art and its
surroundings. More generous mat borders enable you to focus on
the art much more easily. (Courtesy LarsonJuhl.)
