Framing Guide

Framing Guide

You're ready to order a print from, but what about framing? I don't offer framing on my site, because my printing partner (who I love!) is best-in-class at printing . . . but I don't love their frames—at least not paired with my art.

The good news is that all of my prints come in common ready-made frame sizes. I think you could do well by taking one of a few approaches to selecting a frame:

1. You can't go wrong pairing a thin frame with my art. I use a lot of delicate line weights, and I find that a thin metallic edge around it is better than a thick black one (which often overwhelms it). I love these guys for high-quality, thin-edged frames. I don't know them and am not getting paid by them—I just like their frames. Target, Homegoods, Blick, Michael's, and Ikea are also sources for affordable frames. 

2. Sometimes a white or light wood frame can be a great choice, depending on your interior style. And because a white or light wood frame tends not to overpower the art the way black can, you know the piece will really shine.

3. I also love the idea of doing a cheeky high-low thing, where you pair one of my more punchy, Pop Art-y prints with a gilded antique frame. Hit up your local thrift stores, antique shops, and estate sales—and forget what I said about thin frames in this particular case. The chunkier, the better.

Don't forget to wipe the glass of your frame out with a lint-free cloth. Happy framing!
