Picture Frames to Meet Professional-Quality Needs
At FrameDestination, you’ll find high quality picture frames for your photographs, paintings and precious documents at reasonable prices. Whether your tastes run toward the clean modern styling of simple metal picture frames or your home’s décor calls for the warmth and richness of natural wood picture frames, FrameDestination has a large and diverse selection of picture frames in 60 different sizes.
Custom Picture Frames vs. Readymade Picture Frames
If you are an experienced framer, you’ll appreciate our selection of framing supplies that includes hanging tissue and photo corners as well as the best quality Bainbridge mats. Choose from genuine glass glazing or crystal-clear acrylic for finishing your custom picture frames. On the other hand, if you are just starting out or are an amateur with little experience, you may prefer one of the dozens of ready made picture frames that we regularly have in stock. We also carry complete framing kits with all the framing materials you need in order to provide the perfect home for your artistic masterpiece.
Choose The Right Picture Frames
There are no rigid rules to go by when selecting an appropriate frame for your images and documents, but there are some general guidelines that are helpful in making a perfect match.
Remember that your photo, painting or document is the star of the show, here. Therefore, a gaudy and elaborate frame that pulls the veiwer’s attention away from the artifact is not the best choice, unless you live in a baroque-styled home or have such a gallery and are displaying paintings by the Old Masters. Even then, modern tastes dictate a more subdued, even minimalist approach. Wood picture frames with a simple stain finish or dark colored metal picture frames are usually the best to use for most decorating situations.
The other issue to keep in mind is aspect ratio. This refers to an image’s length and width in stated units (usually inches), so an aspect ratio of 4:3 would be 4 inches by 3 inches, or 12” by 9,” 16” by 12”, etc.
Since the advent of digital photography however, many more aspect ratios have come into use – all of which affect the size and dimensions of the images. FrameDestination was the first company to offer ready made picture frames in all of these sizes.
