Last year I was given a beautiful (and quite large) fine art photograph by Vancouver photographer Janis Nicolay. It has to be one of my favorite pieces of hers and I finally made a trip to our local Michael's store to get it framed. I also took along two other favorite screen prints from Australian artist, Kate Banzai that have also been sitting around waiting to be framed. It's been a while since I last had a piece professionally framed and so the experience was rather interesting and I thought worth sharing.
I loved their Custom Framing Visualizer where when you bring in the piece you wish to frame, the professional framer photographs it and then uploads the image to their Visualizer to show you what your piece could look like in the frame and matting you chose. This is super helpful! I went for a simple white on white for Janis' photograph with a wood white frame and metal white frames for the screenprints.
While waiting I couldn't help but notice everything placed so neatly in their workroom, so I snapped a few.
Check back with me next week when I pick up my finished pictures! Can't wait to see them!
