Types of picture frames we offer : Floating: Instead of making the photograph look as if it is held in place by the frame, when you buy floating picture frames, you will enjoy an optical illusion of the picture actually floating on the wall. This is because it is sandwiched tightly between two pieces of glass that allow you to see through the picture frame to the photograph or art displayed. This is a great choice if you really want to set off the art you’re displaying and if the color of your wall looks great with it as any imperfections in the wall will be instantly visible behind a floating frame.
Display : Hanging frames come with the attached hardware that you will need to hang your picture on the wall. They make it very easy to install a gallery wall or simply to hang up one or two select photographs. It is possible to turn a tabletop picture frame into one that can be hung on the wall if you use the right hardware but it is much easier to simply buy the kind that you want from the beginning. This eliminates any hassle of trying to convert the picture frame and ensures that it will be stable and steady enough to not accidentally come off of the wall. Shape : While not as easy to find as other types of frames are, oval frames are very classy and will really draw attention to the photograph in the frame. They come as both hanging and tabletop frames and are generally a little fancier than other types of frames are. When using these frames, you will have to cut down the photograph that you are going to be displaying. It’s easy to do this by using the included picture in the frame as a guide.
Do you print to the acrylic directly or face mount by printing onto paper first then mounting? You’ll find that companies who print directly to the acrylic with a UV printer are able to offer it at a cheaper price (particularly if outsourcing outside the US), so if you don’t mind giving up some color accuracy, vibrancy, and permanence this may be a good option particularly for outdoor spaces and signage where it’s not as critical. The face mount process is more labor-intensive and there aren’t many companies doing it well on a consistent basis. It isn’t an easy process, but the end result is well worth it.

Materials: There are few things more special than a personalized frame filled with a wonderful picture. These frames have to be custom ordered so you can make sure that they will have the correct spelling that you want but will instantly become a favorite of your recipient.
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.
