Picture Framing for Sydney's Collages

Amarisco Framing & Mounting Artarmon - Thursday, March 08, 2018

Picture frame collages have risen in popularity of late, especially as it has become easier and easier to take hundreds of digital photos, and for them to turn out well. Now, it is common for families to have dozens of photos of themselves, spread throughout the house, or in a collage-esque design pattern.

These collages are often set out in a loose geometrical shape, typically on one wall, or perhaps sharing a corner. With perhaps ten to twenty individual photos, there is sometimes a travel motif, or a romantic one at work – but in any case, proper framing will need to happen, to protect each photo and to ensure that it is preserved.

In the past, most of these collages incorporated a similar frame. Buying in bulk, for projects of such magnitude, was the cost-effective – if predictable – solution. However, as creative types have taken the project on, newer, quirkier styles have taken their place. Picture framing in Sydney has begun to search out new matches.

For many, the task has become how to match a given photo to the frame, within the confines of the project. This enters us in to the realm of how to properly suit a frame to the motif and theme of the photo.

In field as subjective as this, personal preference reigns. But there are some notions that can suit any given photo. For example, a more serious and formal photo deserves a more stripped-back and professional frame. A classic photo, perhaps of someone's grandparents, could be better suited to a more ornate wooden frame. A romantic shot could occupy a brighter frame, with softer edges.

As with so many aspects of photography, there are no rules here. There is only taste, and the ability to create something new and personal is one of the reasons that we enjoy enhancing artwork, memorabilia, and photographs here at Amarisco. So let your imagination run wild when framing pictures here in Sydney, we can make them come alive for you.

Protective UV Filtering Glass from your Favourite Frame Shop

Amarisco Framing & Mounting Artarmon - Thursday, March 08, 2018

At Amarisco, we are a frame shop that specialises in creating a lasting and matching frame, to preserve and display photos, artwork, and memorabilia for the long-term. We know the high regard in which your favourite photos are held, and as part of our value promise, we want to ensure that your frame and piece are there for you for years to come.

This is a key reason for you to consider including a UV filtering glass pane on your piece. By installing this filter, you are preventing the piece from becoming faded over time due to exposure to harmful sunlight.

Without altering your view of the piece, a UV filter is able to remove 99% of harmful UV rays. Left unprotected, UV has the ability to fade and deteriorate the sharpness of the image, the contrast of delicate paintwork, and the ‘just-worn’ aspect of any of your sports memorabilia, jerseys and shirts included.

While it will not protect it from every potential source of danger, it can remove a common source of deterioration. And as a plus, you are no longer limited to the whereabouts of your photo or display hanging. It can be positioned in a spot that catches some natural light, all the better to enjoy the piece, and to ensure it gets noticed by guests at your home or business.

A frame, and a professional frame shop, knows the value of your memorabilia, photo, or artwork, and we at Amarisco want to ensure that it stays in peak condition for many years. Enquire about these UV filtering frames today.
