If you have wide photographs of sweeping landscapes or large groups of people (such as a class or team picture), panoramic picture frames are a natural choice. Such frames have an aspect ratio that is very wide with limited height.
Because every panoramic image is unique, it is virtually impossible to offer panoramic picture frames ready-to-use out of the box, as it were. However, at Frame Destination, you'll find all the supplies you need to successfully create your own custom panoramic picture frames, as well as full support from framing experts and educational web resources and books on the topic of framing. When you need panoramic frames including 10 X 30 frames, shop online at Frame Destination for quality, value and knowledge.
Successful framing begins with mountboard, which is the base to which the artifact (painting or photo) is rests. It is important that the artifact is able to move and is not permanently attached to the mountboard; otherwise, buckling may occur as the mountboard expands and contracts with the ambient temperature of the room. Photo corners or hinging tissue will keep your panoramic photo in place while allowing some “flex.”
Matboard is placed over the photo, and prevents the photo from coming into physical contact with the glazing. It is important to purchase acid-free materials; otherwise, these acids can seep into the photo, interacting with photographic chemicals and causing unsightly yellowing. This also allows for air circulation, preventing moisture from becoming a problem.
