Prints Charming: A Guide to Framing Your Pinktastique Art

When it comes to sprucing up your space, nothing shouts "stylish" louder than a well-placed, beautifully framed piece of art. The right piece has the magical ability to transform a lackluster room into an enchanting oasis of self-expression.

The allure doesn't stop at the art itself, though, oh no! The frame that surrounds your chosen treasure is just as important, creating a protective border that enhances the aesthetic appeal and truly makes your art pop!

Enter the world of Pinktastique, the brand that is all about expressing your inner 'pinkness.' Each Pinktastique print is a joyous journey of colors, where every line tells a story, every swirl ignites the imagination, and every shade of pink paints a picture of positivity. But, to fully appreciate these unique pieces of art, you may want to add some thought to the framing.

At Pinktastique, we don't believe in leaving your prints bare or neglected. No siree! We encourage you to wrap your prints in the frame that complements them best, like a fabulous dress on a red carpet. After all, our prints are more than mere images, they are expressive statements of your personality and your home's unique vibe. Ready to frame fabulous?

Framing the Fabulous: How to Choose the Perfect Frame

pexels-terje-sollie-298857

The frame you select for your prints isn't just a boundary to protect the art, it's the fabulous outfit that enhances its beauty and makes it the star of the room. Now, imagine if a celebrity wore the same outfit to every event. Boring, right? Similarly, the same frame may not bring out the best in every print.

That's why choosing the perfect frame for your print is a thrilling quest, just like finding that dream dress or the perfect pair of shoes!

When it comes to framing, there are a couple of key things to remember.

Firstly, the frame you choose can significantly influence the perception of your artwork. For example, a monochrome print in a bold, hot pink frame is a feisty declaration of individuality, while the same print in a sleek, black frame whispers chic sophistication.

Next, consider the vibrant personalities of our prints. A 'Staircase Serenade Wall Art Print' would shine in a rustic, vintage frame, enhancing its whimsical charm (think a frame with an antique gold finish or distressed wood texture). On the other hand, the 'Shoes Complete Me Quote Wall Art Print' may strut its stuff best in a modern, minimalist frame that complements its sassy quote without stealing the show.

Lastly, always consider your existing decor style. If your room is already a dance of eclectic elements, a boho-style frame might be the perfect fit! However, if you're a fan of sleek lines and neutral tones, a simple, modern frame could be your go-to choice.

And remember, there are no rules etched in stone here. At Pinktastique, we encourage creativity and fun in the framing process. After all, your home is your canvas, and your framed prints are your masterpieces! So, don't be afraid to experiment and let your personality shine. Frame fabulous, darlings!

Accessorizing with Matting

Matting is like the perfect accessory – it ties everything together and makes your art prints truly shine. But what exactly is it? Simply put, the matting is the act of adding an additional layer, usually a border made from high-quality paper-based material, around your artwork. It's like gifting your art print with its own personal runway!

Matting serves two significant roles – it protects your artwork by creating a barrier between the glass and the art, and it accentuates the art, drawing attention to its best features. Think of it as the little black dress for your Pinktastique prints – a stunning enhancer!

Our Pinktastique prints love being matted – it truly brings out their personality. For example, adding a crisp white mat around the 'Shoes Complete Me Quote Wall Art Print' will make the colors pop, and the quote stand out even more.

Here are a few tips when it comes to matting:

  • Color is Key: Choose a mat color that complements your print. Usually, neutral colors like white, cream, or light grey work well with most prints. But if you're feeling adventurous, a bold-colored mat can make a dramatic statement!
  • Size Matters: The mat width should be determined by the size of the artwork. A general rule of thumb is that smaller prints look best with a narrower mat, while larger prints can handle a wider mat.
  • Double the Fun: Consider double matting – using two layers of mats – to add depth and a dash of color. This technique can work wonders on prints like our 'My Retro Pastel Home Wall Art Print', where the double mat can highlight the enchanting pops of pastel details.

Remember, the key to perfect matting is to ensure that it complements your artwork without overpowering it. After all, in the grand spectacle of your home decor, your Pinktastique print is the leading lady, and the mat is its trusty sidekick. Happy matting!

DIY vs. Pro: Framing Showdown

Oh, honey, we're about to dive into a heated debate that's as old as the art itself - DIY framing versus professional framing! Each has its charm, but knowing when to use which will help you show off your Pinktastique prints in all their fabulousness.

First, let's talk DIY. These days we are so lucky you can find frames everywhere, from the cheaper varieties at discount stores to furniture stores like Ikea, and you can even go thrifting and find an excellent find.

DIY is typically more budget-friendly, allowing you to add your unique personal touch to each frame. Imagine creating a custom frame for our 'Flamingo Fancy in Fuchsia Print ' using a recycled vintage frame you found at a thrift shop - now that's a one-of-a-kind piece!

If you are going to DIY, take your art with you, or at least a picture on your phone and look at it with the frame. This simple tip helps the frame and artwork come together. You can always get your frame first and then print your wall art to fit the frame. Our guide below allows you to see what size piece fits in the frame before you print.

Remember if you add matting to allow for that in the overall sizing. For example, if you are getting a 24" x 30" frame and want a 2" matt, then when you get your art printed, you get it printed at 4" smaller to allow for the matting. That means your print would be printed at 20" x 25".

Then there's always professional framing!

Professional framing is like having your own personal stylist. They know what they're doing, they'll make your prints look fabulous, and you won't have to lift a finger. If you're framing an especially large print or something like our intricate 'Kaleidoscope Dream Wall Art Print', a professional touch could be the way to go.

The choice between DIY and professional framing will depend on your budget, time, and comfort level. But regardless of which route you take, remember this - each Pinktastique print is designed to ignite joy, spark creativity, and make your space truly feel like home. So trust your instincts, have fun with the process, and let your prints do the talking!

Loving Your Prints: Caring for Your Framed Artworks

Dahlings, your Pinktastique prints deserve to look stunning today, tomorrow, and forever. So, let's talk about how you can keep them as fresh and fabulous as the day you first hung them up!

Maintain, Don’t Strain: The first rule of art care is cleaning. A quick dust-off with a soft, dry cloth keeps your framed prints looking their finest. Remember, less is more. Abrasive cleaners or damp cloths are a no-no.

Placement is Paramount: Sunlight may be your best selfie friend, but it's not so kind to your art prints. UV rays can fade those brilliant colors quicker than you can say "Pinktastique"! Humidity is another culprit that can cause warping or mould. So, where's the ideal spot? Think cool, dry, and away from direct sunlight. Above a mantlepiece or on an accent wall in your living room could be the perfect place for our 'Champagne Splash Print'.

Rotation is the Spice of Life: Last but not least, keep your decor popping by rotating your prints every now and then. This doesn’t just keep things fresh, but also gives all your Pinktastique pieces a chance to shine! Swap out our 'Candy Pink Doll Delight Print' for the ' Satin Pink Cool Wall Art Print' as the seasons change.

At the end of the day, these prints are your own slice of artistry, so treat them with love and care. Your prints will thank you by continuing to bring that Pinktastique vibrance to your space for years to come!
