Unrolling a print
When you receive a Paperpaintpixels print in the post, the larger sizes are rolled carefully in tissue for protection. There are a couple of good options to flattening the print described in the short video below. Please make sure to keep the tissue paper on the print to protect it from any potential damage while you unroll.
Where to get frames?
Some of my favourite places to shop for frames include John Lewis, IKEA, Dunelm Mill, Desenio, Postery, Etsy, Ebay, and even Amazon, where regular-size frames can be found for prices that won't break the bank.
If you are creating a gallery wall use one element to create a cohesive look —whether it be a finish, a theme, or a colour of frames or mounts—or you can throw caution to the wind and go with something fun and eclectic.
You can sometimes find great frames in the art sections of stores - just pull out the generic print and replace with your own. Antique, Vintage shops and Charity shops often sell framed prints for a bargain, and you can find really unique pieces to showcase your art.
On a budget? Go for store-bought frames and custom mounts. If you find it difficult to source frames that have mounts the size you need, custom mats can easily be created for you.
Look for a framing or craft shop nearby or online that offers custom frames, give them your measurements, and they’ll whip one up for you. The cost varies based on size, but it can still be way more affordable than paying for custom framing.
Below are a few suggestions from Pinterest about Frames available in the US and the UK.
