Models of picture frames we have on stock : Decorative: Instead of being plain, decorative frames have pictures, sayings, and even sometimes 3D elements on them that will make the frame really pop. It is fun to find a decorative frame that fits with the theme of the picture that you are going to display as this makes the picture and frame appear to be a cohesive unit that you’re displaying. With so many decorative frames to choose from, you can easily buy one that will match the hobbies or interests of the person you’re giving it to.
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.
Does the price include “gallery quality”? This is only a question to ask if the acrylic print is face mounted. The machine made direct to acrylic prints won’t have this issue since the ink is added directly to the acrylic. What is typically considered gallery quality? While the quality of the components are certainly critical and we’ll get into that in a bit, in this regard we’re referring to the acceptable level of imperfection that can arise during the acrylic face mounting process. In particular, dust specs and bubbles that can get trapped between the acrylic and the print itself. This is a common problem which is why most companies won’t take it on and just print directly to the acrylic. Having to redo an acrylic face mount is expensive especially if it has to be redone a few times! Most photo labs offering acrylic face mounting get around this in one of two ways – by offering “gallery quality” as a high-priced upgrade option or using a disclaimer that says the price being offered may include visible imperfections.

Materials: Ceramic picture frames are great because they come in all styles, are easy to paint, and are relatively strong so they won’t easily chip or break. When looking for a ceramic frame, you will be able to choose from a lot of patterns and designs.
Here’s how it all happens: before the process begins, your photograph will be inspected for any imperfections. Then, your picture will be printed onto heat transfer paper, made specifically for the dye-sublimation process. At this point, the image on the heat transfer would look like a transparent, desaturated version of your original image.
