Creative Way to Hang Your Professional Pictures
Are you looking for a creative way to hang your professional pictures? The most traditional way to display your images is on the walls of your home. It’s easy and simple, and a classy way to showcase the pictures you love. Placing your frames in a pleasing way can be challenging, so we’ve created a couple mock displays for you. These are just a few of the hundreds of ways to arrange your frames, but hopefully they get your wheels turning and inspire you to create a display that fits you.
When choosing how to display your professional images, many people ask whether to use a mat with a frame or not. Mats are a great addition to the entire piece of art that you are hanging, but some feel they are more of a distraction from the image. The choice is always yours, but here are some things to consider. Adding mats to your image can enhance your piece so that it looks more like art. They come in almost any color, size and can even be layered. Mats can also be a huge benefit for awkward frame sizes. And because they can easily be cut to any size, they can be used to help standard sized prints fit into a non standard frame. One other benefit to using mats is that it creates a bit of space between the glass and the image and can help improve moisture attacking the image.
Others choose not to include a mat when framing their image for a variety of reasons. One is they love to display their images as large as possible and don’t want the mat to take away from the size. Mats also take attention away from the image. When a picture has a fancy frame and mat around it, the eye looks at the entire piece and not just the image. And some people simply prefer the look of a framed image with no mat.
No frame or mat, making a canvas out of them could be the right answer for you! Canvases are a great way to turn your pictures into a piece of art, if you do them the right way. Many websites and companies offer canvases for cheap, which may seem like a great option, but most often they are selling you out cheap. Many companies are able to price canvases low because they make them quickly with low quality. This production model saves you money, but many canvases made this way end up fading, breaking easily, or losing quality that your professional photographer spent a lot of time putting into your picture. The best route to go is through your photographer- whether they let you order canvases through them, or have good advice on where to order on your own. They know where to find quality pictures, and will help make your experience one that lasts.
