Your living space says a lot about you, and your walls serve as a great canvas for expressing your vibe. Filling your walls with art and photos is all a matter of personal choice, but it should be framed properly regardless of what you choose to hang on your walls.
Whether you’re hoping to create a gallery wall brimming with fun personal photos or are simply in the market for a new piece to hang over your bed, we have you covered on the best online framing services to take your walls to the next level. But given the fact that framing is an art in and of itself, there are a few things you need to know before you commit to a style and size.
Best Online Framing Services
What to Consider
If you’re buying frames online for art or photos you already own, finding the right size is key. Obviously, you’ll want to measure your piece before ordering to ensure the frame has the correct dimensions. But these days, it’s pretty easy to buy art or print your personal photos directly through framing services.
Wood and metal frames are the most popular, and you’ll also see many textured options on the market, like something that is beveled versus flat or has a decorative border. You’ll also need to decide whether or not you want a mat — a piece of material within a picture frame to separate the art from the glass. Adding a mat to your art or photos adds an element of decoration — and acid-free mat boards actually help preserve the presentation of paintings.
When it comes to the glass component of the frame, look for shatterproof, acrylic glass. Some sites offer acrylic glazing with UV protection to further ensure the long-term preservation of your piece. When ordering online, the glass layer, frame itself, molding, borders, and matting options are all typically available to preview before you make a purchase, making it easy to visualize what the piece will look like once you’ve customized it to your desired preferences.
One more note: Scan the description of your frame before your purchase to ensure it comes equipped with metal hangers or easy hanging hardware, so you’re prepared to hang your new piece.
