Custom Frame Design
Sometimes a special photo needs a special frame design. While every custom frame is chosen to suit the artwork it holds, there are endless additional design elements you can incorporate. If you feel like you can’t come up with an extraordinary idea on your own, try asking your framer “What would you do with this picture if it was your own?”, or “How would you frame this photo if you could do anything you wanted with it?”
Here is a standard black and white combination on a pair of adorable baby snapshots:
Nothing wrong with that, but warmer colors might look better:
Cute! But what would happen you asked your framer what she would do if the pictures were her own?
In the Black Lacquer frame above, a pink design (inspired by the motif within the molding) was mechanically drawn onto a shiny black mat with a metallic pink paint pen. Now you know you’re looking at something (someone!) special!
One last idea: This little girl’s mama loves the color pink, so we kept the pen design from above, but changed the frame to pink. What do you think?
