FRAMING YOUR PRINTS

What size and colour frame should I buy for my print?!

We know... we know! – you’ve just added your favourite prints to your cart and you’re proceeding to check out. You’re finalising your payment method and about to click PAY NOW, while racing around trying to find your car keys so you can run out the door and choose the perfect frames to compliment your new beautiful prints that are on their way to your door!
BUT when you get to the shops you realise, you’re not sure what size to purchase or what will suit your print!!
Never fear! This is a question we receive all too often so we’ve done some research for you to help you choose the right frame for your prints because let’s face it, there would be nothing worse than the excitement of receiving the delivery of your prints, eagerly unwrapping them and getting ready to hang them in their frames only to realise that the frames aren't right and need to be exchanged! ☹
Meaning, you’ll have to wait longer to showcase them in your home!
The team at Isla Dream have got you!


Choosing a frame colour

When choosing a frame we recommend keeping it super simple so that your print remains the focal point and the statement!
Depending on your décor we recommend using either a white or natural timber frame! A neutral frame is always a safe option and will help if you ever want to change up your space.

HOT TIP - Often frames will come with the option of a matte boarder insert, we have found these especially nice when framing smaller sized prints to achieve the illusion of a larger print! 👇🏻


Choosing a frame size

FUN FACT!
The ISO is the International Organization for Standardization, and there are only two countries that have not officially adopted their system – America & Canada.
We have done a bit of research to hopefully make your trip to the shops a little less stressful and have compiled the closest conversions for you!
If you would like to check out other sizes, we have found this website to be really helpful!
