Framing

FRAMING GUIDE

All Carly Renee prints come unframed. It is always recommended to get your prints professionally framed for best results, especially with the limited edition prints and original artworks to ensure your print is framed to archival standards, however we are more than happy to offer some useful and cost effective information on how you can best frame your prints yourself and get a similar result.

Custom Framing 

A professional framer can step you through the whole process and be able to work with you on the frame design as well as the mat size and colour. It is best to have limited edition print artworks unpacked by your framer (rather than you) as they will know how to best handle your print and ensure it does not get damaged prior to framing.  You can always request this be done with you so that you can be there at the unveiling!

DIY

There are lots of great ready made frames available to achieve a beautiful look. All Carly Renee prints come in four sizes that fit widely-available picture frames from stores such as Ikea, Country Road, Spotlight, West Elm, Officeworks, Temple & Webster, Olive et Oriel & John Lewis (UK), as well as independent framers and home stores.

we recommend using a mat board with all our prints and original artworks. A mat board provides ‘breathing’ space between the print and the glass. This ensures your print does not come into contact with any moisture that may build on the surface of the glass particularly with temperature and humidity changes.  A mat board can also enhance your print and create more of a statement.

All prints fit standard sized frames & will come with a white boarder, this means the image will not be printed all the way to the edges.

All adhesives and paper used next the print should be acid free to preserve the print over time.

Always ensure your print is out of direct sunlight.  UV rays will deteriorate your print.
