Types of picture frames we cover : ShadowBox: These picture frames are deeper than typical frames, allowing you to easily store and display more than just photographs. Depending on what you want to display, you can buy very deep shadow boxes that are perfect for sports memorabilia, buttons, or even badges and pins. Make sure that the shadow box you choose is deep enough so that your items aren’t being pushed up against the glass when they are on display.
Display : Floor picture frames are going to be a lot larger than tabletop and even hanging frames are; this is so that the pictures can be seen easily once they are in the frame and on the floor. It is very common for these frames to lean, making it easy to move them from one location to another and simply lean them against the wall when you want to display your photographs. Because of their size, it’s normal for them to be collage frames and to have more than one opening for pictures. Shape : When you want something a little different to display your photographs, then you will be best off with a novelty frame. These come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and can be in the design of everything from a tree to a castle. Novelty picture frames are great if you are in the market for an interesting gift for someone you love as they often are decorated in a theme and you can find ones that will appeal to different hobbies and interests. Make sure that you have room for the novelty frame that you are considering buying as many of the hanging ones tend to be quite large.
First and foremost, it’s important to know that there are two very distinct processes in creating an acrylic print with two different outcomes – direct printing onto the acrylic substrate and the face mounting method of printing onto the photographic paper, then mounting behind the acrylic. We’ve been producing face mounted acrylic prints for a decade now so have seen a lot of changes in the industry over the years particularly in the way acrylic prints are produced and where. When we started it was just a handful of boutique print companies in the USA and Europe producing high-quality face mounted prints. In recent years that has changed completely with just about every company now offering some variation of an acrylic print (including canvas companies) with wide differences in quality of components, craftsmanship, and certainly price. See more info on Metal photo prints.
Materials: Ceramic picture frames are great because they come in all styles, are easy to paint, and are relatively strong so they won’t easily chip or break. When looking for a ceramic frame, you will be able to choose from a lot of patterns and designs.
As Eric Von Lehmden writes in The Canvas Press, photographers have been printing on metal practically since the invention of photography. Early photographs were printed on metal and called “tintypes.” These days, printing on metal, a process called dye-sublimation, is a little more high-tech, and yields a much more vivid, beautiful result.
