Choosing Your Image Or Artwork

The first step in creating a stunning framed picture is to select the right image or artwork. This is an important step! First, you’ll want to consider the theme and style of the room you want to decorate with Framed Photo Prints.

Are you looking to showcase a breathtaking landscape, a cherished family moment, or one of your artistic masterpieces? Whichever you choose, ensure it holds sentimental value or reflects your personality.

If you are using a digital image, make sure it has a high resolution to ensure a sharp and clear print. Choose an image with balanced colours and composition, as this will mean you can create the best possible final framed picture.

Creating Your Framed Photo Print

Here’s the fun part. Once you have chosen the perfect image, it’s time to create your Framed Photo Print! Companies like Canvas Factory offer online design tools that make this process super easy and convenient. Upload your selected image to the platform and select the size of the print you desire. Pay attention to the aspect ratio, so the image does not get distorted during printing.

Next, choose the type of framing you prefer. At Canvas Factory, we have a number of different frame colours and styles.

You can choose from different colours such as Black, White, Walnut or Maple.

Then, choose from either a Modern or Classic frame. Each option will offer a slightly different look.

Our tip: Choose options that suit your existing interior design frame. Or, if your rooms have a more eclectic look, mix it up with different styles.

How To Choose A Picture Frame

So, with so many different framing options on offer, how do you choose a picture frame for your image or for the room you’re decorating?

Well, when choosing your frame, think about the following.

  • What kind of frames do you have already? If you want a cohesive look, you might want to choose frames to match the ones you have. Or, if you’re going for an eclectic look, you’re free to mix and match different styles.
  • What look do you want to go for? If you want to stick with a modern look, choose our Modern frames. If you already have a more Classic home style, opt for a Classic frame.
  • Which prints are you choosing? Some prints match better with certain coloured frames. On Canvas Factory, you’ll be able to see a preview of your print with different frame colours and styles, so you can decide what looks best. For example, a predominantly white print might not look great with a White frame. You may want to choose a Black frame so that it stands out against your print.

Finalising Your Order

Before placing your order, review the specifications, including the image, print size, frame choice, and delivery details. Double-check for any errors or discrepancies to make sure that your Framed Photo Print arrives looking perfect.

Styling Your Framed Photo Prints

Ready to style your Framed Photo Prints? Once your framed picture arrives, it’s time to start styling so you can showcase your pieces in the home.

Here are our best creative ideas to get you started:

Gallery Wall

Use a number of different prints to create a gallery wall. A gallery wall is simply a collection of different prints and frames placed together to create a cohesive wall display. Some gallery walls will feature prints of the same sizes and shapes, while others will be made up of prints of all different sizes, shapes, and orientations. The arrangement can be small or it can be a large, jaw-dropping statement in your living areas.

Mix & Match

For a super cool eclectic look, combine framed pictures with other kinds of wall décor. Add mirrors, plates, wall hangings, wall features or shelves to create a visually appealing display.

Statement Piece

When it comes to wall art, why not go big? Invest in a large, eye-catching framed photo print as a statement piece. For the best effect, place it above your fireplace or bed to draw attention and set the tone for the room.

Layered Display

Framed Photo Prints aren’t just made for your walls. Prop them on a floating shelf or a picture ledge. Layer the edges of the frames so that your pictures are slightly overlapping to achieve a modern and layered look.

How much to frame a print?

The cost of your Framed Photo Print will vary depending on what size you choose. Typically, the larger the frame, the greater the cost. You can check out the costs of our frames on Canvas Factory.

What is the difference between framed and unframed prints?

Framed Photo Prints are covered in glass and have a frame surrounding them, typically made of wood or plastic. Unframed prints are usually Canvas Prints. With canvas-wrapped pictures, the canvas covers a wooden frame and is wrapped around the back of the wood and secured in place with heavy-duty staples or glue – or both. Both options make beautiful prints to decorate your home with. They also make great gifts!
