First, you need to decide what type of frame you want
There are several different types of frames to choose from, including wood, metal, and plastic. Each type of frame has its advantages and disadvantages. You’ll also need to decide on the color and style of the frame.
Once you’ve chosen a frame, you’ll need to find a print that matches your decor. There are several ways to do this, including visiting art galleries and shops, purchasing prints online, and printing your digital photographs.
If you’re not sure which type of art print you want to buy, or how it should be framed, look for pictures that match your room decor in magazines and on the internet. This is a great way to get ideas! Once you’ve found some pictures you like, you can figure out which type of print you want to buy.
Next, find the right store to buy your print from
If you’re looking for an online shop, try searching Google or Yahoo! for “art prints.” You can also search your preferred search engine using the name of your city and state (e.g. “art prints” in Chicago, Illinois). If you’d rather visit a local store, ask one of your friends where they get their art prints and photos framed.
You might also try some of the print galleries available on the internet. You can find these sites by doing an online search for “buy art posters” or “buy art prints.” If all else fails, you can go to a walk-in printing and framing shop and ask them for some ideas.
Once you’ve found the print you want, search Google or Yahoo! for “art posters,” or “archival photo prints,” and find a store that sells this type of art. You’ll likely need to have prints on archival paper. That means they can’t fade or yellow if left out on a window ledge for too long.
While you’re searching the Internet, it’s also a good idea to visit art galleries and shops, which are great places to find quality prints. Once you’ve found some pictures that match your tastes, ask the shopkeeper if they can order prints for you. If the print is in stock, you’ll get it right away; otherwise, it might take a day or two to ship.
Frames and mats come in a range of different styles and colors
Before making your final choice, think about what color would match your room decor the best. Also, think about the size of the print. If it’s too small, you won’t get a good effect from having it framed.
