Since starting this project, I have been constantly tweaking my framing style to come up with a design that enhances the photographs.
- Barnboard - Initially, all of the frames for my prints were made from wood salvaged from a major renovation on our circa 1803 house. I still have some of that wood available to make frames for special orders. Once it's gone this style will be discontinued.
- Rough Painted - The second set of frames that I made were out of rough lumber that didn't have the character of the old aged wood from my house. A simple matte black paint adds a nice contrast to the artwork.
- Narrow Smooth - My latest creation is a narrower frame with a chamfered edge. The wood is smooth with a satin black finish and the photo is closer to the front of the frame.
These frames are built 1" larger than the image, so that the photo has a 1/2" margin around it and it floats inside the frame.
- Floating - I mount a frame that is 4" smaller than the art on the back which spaces it out from the wall 3/4" and gives it a floating effect. This would be instead of a frame.
In Stock photos are generally already framed and the frame style will be listed with each photo, however I can change frames easily upon request.
Special Order photos can be framed either in reclaimed wood (while supplies last), rough wood in black , narrow wood in black or floating . Specify at the time of ordering. If you'd prefer a different color, we can discuss that and an upcharge will apply.
