Custom Picture Framing – What the Term Means
Custom picture framing is more specialised than general picture framing. It involves tailoring the picture framing to the unique needs of the item being framed. In the case of general picture framing, items are framed with no consultation with the customer and often mass produced with little variation in frame styles. The client purchases the picture ready-made.
But all is not lost. Many custom picture framers have experience reframing pictures framed in this manner and are only too happy to advise what will look best. This is the type of picture framing I enjoy the most. It is very satisfying to see a picture transformed from something drab into a work of art.
Custom picture framing takes into account what frame suits the item best and what colours complement. Some items are best suited to plain and simple styles while others are best with elaborate or ornate frames. The frame adds to the look of the picture, making it seem traditional, modern, elegant or fun.
Custom picture framing also involves having an eye for what looks right. The choice of frame style and colours can either make or break the look of the finished result. The right frame around your picture makes a world of difference.
By working with a custom picture framer you are more or less designing your own picture. A custom picture framer will advise you and make suggestions of what will look best but the final decision is up to you.
