Why You Really Need To Have Your Art Professionally Framed

Over the years, I’ve acquired a bunch of great prints and for some reason thought it was fine to order a frame with a custom mat on eBay and call it a day. This invariably led to infuriating lopsided moments, sticky tape, and a general low-rent look that wasn’t doing my home or my art any favors.

During my recent renovation, one of my countless priorities was to have solely professionally framed pieces on my walls. It was time to be a grown up about this stuff.

There’s a number of online framing options, the best known being Framebridge. I took all my prints out of their respective shitty frames, photographed them and packed them up. They send packaging if you need it, and a shipping label. It is so stress-free and amazing.

It’s so easy. You go to the site, pick your frame and can even see how your piece will look in it. What was really cool was the option to choose matting with a colored edge, which really gives your art that extra touch.

I have a couple of abstract paintings by Cacho Falcon and one needed a frame, so I just sent the rolled canvas and had it framed in a floating wood frame, gallery-style.

When the frames came back a couple of weeks later, I was actually kind of overwhelmed by how incredible they looked. I wasn’t expecting everything to look quite so upgraded. Now I can’t stop telling people about it.

Check out Framebridge for prices and all your framing options,
