Print Framing Tips

FramingPrints2.jpg

All prints come unframed. Jess prefers to let collectors independently frame their piece in their own unique style. A local frame shop is a good option for this, as they have great selection and expertise. Designer Amy Mitchell gives a thorough run-down of the local framer advantage here: http://homeglowdesign.com/2016/10/13/myth-mega-framing-sales/

For the DIY collector looking to frame the piece themselves, there are some easy options out there. 

Jess's prints are intentionally designed to bleed off the edges, with no white border. This way they can easily pop into standard 18x24" or 16x20" frames respectively, without trimming. The effect when framed is a more original-looking print. The key for longevity of the print is a piece of glass or clear acrylic over the print, and sturdy, non-acidic backing.
