How to Choose the Perfect Custom Frame at Michaels

With endless frame possibilities at Michaels, selecting the ideal custom frame for your specific item can feel overwhelming. Keep these tips in mind when choosing custom framing:

Consider the item you’re framing. Is it art, memorabilia, a photograph? This affects ideal frame size, depth and materials. Art needs more substantial frames than photos. Memorabilia frames have protective sleeves.

Think about orientation. Will it be displayed portrait or landscape direction? Make sure the frame accommodates the orientation of your piece.

Choose frame material carefully. Real wood frames are beautiful but can dent. Composites like polystyrene are durable yet lightweight. Metal frames add modern flair.

Select a frame depth with item thickness in mind. Deep frames can hold 3D objects. Standard photo frames only accommodate thin items.

Factor in matting and borders. Do you want complementary mats? Multiple mats? Contrasting borders? This impacts the visual look.

Decide on glass or acrylic. Glass provides a crystal clear view. Acrylic is lighter and more resilient. UV options prevent fading.

Mind the hanging hardware. Sawtooth hangers are common. D-rings add wire for big frames. Easels enable tabletop display.

Consider lighting. Ask about lighting options if displaying somewhere dark. Illumination showcases the art.

Don’t overlook preservation. Archival matting and UV glazing protect valued artwork or cherished photos.

Set your budget. Simple standard frames start under $20. Handcrafted custom frames can cost over $300.

By carefully considering these factors, you’re sure to find the ideal custom frame at Michaels to showcase your special item beautifully for years to come!
