A New Frame Of Mind

I'm still working on the finishing touches for Seamus's room. I've started putting together a little gallery wall for him, which always takes forever. It's such a pain to get all the artwork to the framers, and it's expensive too.

I kept seeing posts and ads for Framebridge, so I decided to give them a try. If you're not familiar, Framebridge is an online framing service. You pick your frame, enter the dimensions of your piece, mail it to them, and they frame it and mail it back to you. There's free shipping both ways, and it's very affordable.

I decided to try it out on one of the bigger pieces I had in my stash. I purchased this campfire print from the Land of Nod. It's 16x20, so to frame through my usual route would be really, really expensive. Through Framebridge (with a coupon code), it was only $85. Now I know that's not nothing, but to frame a piece of this size, that's a really decent price.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I chose the "Irvine" frame for a nice clean, crisp look. I can't wait to do the rest of my pieces and hang them all up.

Note: On my forever art pieces I tend to spring for the museum quality glass. Framebridge offers only acrylic. It's fine for these pieces or if you're on a budget, but if you're able to, there's nothing quite like museum quality glass for a framed piece.

Just for the record, this was not a paid for or sponsored (I wish). I think this is a good service, so I just wanted to share.
