Frames & Mats
Gallery Wrap is the “No-Frame Frame" for Canvas
Above is the Primordial Soup painting as a print with a gallery wrap frame. The sides are deeper than a normal painting, and the painting continues onto the sides. Alternately, you can make the sides all-black or all-white. Gallery wrap is considered a frame, even though it looks considerably different than traditional frames. It is only available on canvas.
Traditional Frames Are Available For Canvas And Paper Prints
You can add traditional frames to canvas and paper prints. Pixels.com has two kinds of paper prints – Art Print and Framed Print. They appear on the site as two separate options, both are paper and support frames. I have asked about it, but there appears to be no difference between the two, even though the price may be different. I personally bought an Art Print and it was perfectly fine. More recently, I did a quick check on pricing and found Art and Framed Print to be identical. So you can go either way, but if the two options price differently, choose the lower priced option.
Here's a closeup of the frame that's in the painting above.
What Frames Are Available?
When you're on the pixels.com site, you can click on the frame you selected and then get a closeup view like the above image. Pixels.com has well over 50 different frames to chose from. There are many color categories such as gold, silver, white, black, gray, and more. Here is a sample of the frames in the Brown category.
Only Paper Prints Can Have One Or Two Mats
Mats lie between the painting and the frame. They add trim, and can bring out the colors that are in the painting, frame, or both.
Pixels.com offers over 35 mats.
Between the selection of frames and up to 2 mats, you can create all kinds of art for your space. Many other companies don't even offer mats as an option, which is Bland & Boring. Pixels.com shows you what the picture looks like with every change you make. If you would like help and/or suggestions on frames and mats, just contact me.
