About Framing Posters

Whether it’s vintage advertising posters, movie posters, concert posters, travel posters, or inspirational quotes, posters add a touch of personality and a curated aesthetic that contributes to the overall character and atmosphere of a room. They can reflect personal interests or hobbies allowing their owners to showcase their unique tastes and passions. They can also lend atmosphere to a themed room such as vintage movie posters in a home theater, vintage liquor ads in a bar or inspirational quotes in an office, spa or gym. Posters can also evoke nostalgia or transport viewers into different places and cultures. Beyond the image or message on the poster itself, the right frame can enhance a poster’s effect and protect it from damage.

Should You Frame Canvas Art?

One of the most popular forms of art that our professional framing business deals with is canvas art. Canvas art is popular for many reasons. The texture of the canvas adds depth and visual interest to the artwork, creating a tactile surface. The flexibility of canvas allows for larger-scale works to create a bold statement in a room. The porous nature of canvas absorbs and reflects light differently than other surfaces, adding richness to the artwork. Canvas is durable and long-lasting. It can also provide a more timeless feel when framed in a traditional frame or a more contemporary feel when framed in a floater frame or gallery-wrapped. The feeling you are trying to convey can help you decide whether or not to frame your canvas art.

Some factors to consider include where the item will be displayed so that you can take into account the overall décor as well as other frame styles already present in the room. Our team can help you choose the perfect picture frame colors.

Select Custom Frame Colors & Styles to Complement the Piece

The style, size, and color of a custom frame depend on the type of item you’re framing as well as your personal preferences. Family photographs and wedding framing have different requirements than framing for fine art, diplomas, and memorabilia. Our Boca Raton framing experts share a few guidelines to help you select the perfect custom frame options.

  • Black and white photographs look great in black or white frames. The simplicity and cohesion of the color palette can help you easily create the perfect gallery wall in your home or office.
  • Modern art generally looks best in minimalistic frames so that the focus remains on the artwork, but bold frames with a large mat can offer an alternative visual effect that also looks great.
  • Older styles of art pair well with more ornate frames in gold, silver, or natural wood.
  • Children’s art projects are often vibrant and look fantastic in bright, colorful frames.
  • A degree or certificate that represents a major achievement is best displayed in a simple, timeless frame. Diploma and certificate framing options can include items such as a graduation tassel or cords and can also incorporate moulding or matting in the colors of your alma mater.
  • Sports memorabilia, like tickets from an important game or a jersey signed by your favorite player, can be framed against neutral colors that help the items stand out or with moulding or mat colors that match the team colors.

Enhance the Frame with the Right Matting

Custom matting in one or more colors can be used for a variety of effects. When choosing a mat, you should make sure that the color of the mat doesn’t overpower the item it is bordering. Mat colors should coordinate with those of the item in both color and intensity.

Color is a powerful tool that can influence mood, elicit emotions, and set the tone in a space. Different color combinations can create numerous visual effects, so choosing the perfect custom frame colors can be very rewarding.

The experienced team at our custom frame shop in South Florida will guide you through the various color options with frame moulding and mat samples until we find the combination that speaks to you.
