All frames (except bottom left) via Framebridge
Last year, a friend told me about a new company that would frame your art in custom frames at an affordable price. I laughed in her face. At the time I was living in the city and every time Anel and I wanted a piece of artwork framed, we’d go down the street to the frame shop and spend a minimum of $200 even on a smaller print. That was all we knew and, at the time, that was the only option.
Today, more custom framing options are popping up online but the first and my personal favorite is Framebridge where I’ve sent 90% of the art in my house to be framed. I love it because I can either mail in my art (they’ll send packaging and a label) or if it’s a digital print, I can just submit it online and the process is even quicker.
When putting together the gallery wall for my home office (I promise to share the full room soon!), I looked to them first to frame my various prints that suddenly all tied together once I hung them in their frames.
You can pick from 33 frame styles and add matting if you like. I generally go for plain white (Irvine) and shiny gold (Carson) but if you like a more rustic feel, they have that and pretty much anything you could want! For an extra large piece of art, the max price is $159 which still feels insane to me but I swear it’s real. On top of it, shipping is always free so the framing price is all you pay. Literally. Even for heavy big frames.
Side note: Father’s Day is coming up. For a more sentimental gift this year, frame a photo of you and your old man, a print from a recent trip together, or a flag (see my framed American flag here) If you’re ordering for Father’s Day, the mail in deadline is 6/3 and digital uploads deadline is 6/12.

I’m curious to know where you guys frame your art as well. Any favorites?
