Think Twice Before Investing in Expensive Printing Supplies

When my custom-made t-shirt business began to suffer financially, I wanted to begin handing out printed advertisements and having take-home t-shirt pricing materials printed to advertise my low prices that many people didn't know about. Although I had great supplies to print on t-shirts, they differ greatly from traditional printers. I was looking to invest in a good laser printer, but I came across an online advertisement for a printing service while I was browsing. I did some quick calculations, and I figured out that I could have a huge number of professional printed materials made several times each year for just a fraction of the investment price of that new printer I was looking into. I created this blog to share my experience with other business owners looking to save cash wherever they can. For me, I saved greatly by outsourcing printing of my promotional items.

Want To Put Custom Art On The Walls? Get Custom Frames To Fit Perfectly

When you shop at most stores, artwork comes in specific sizes that fit the majority of frames. This makes it easy to get everything you need to beautify your walls. But what if the art you want is not at any store? You might believe that getting custom art is too difficult because you cannot get the right frame. But this problem is easily solved by getting frames that you can customize to meet your exact needs.

Order Artwork with Complete Freedom

An excellent way to get your hands on artwork that comes from freelance artists is to pay commission to have them create you something. For instance, you might have a favorite show, movie, game, character, or saying that you would like to have turned into a piece of art, and they can do that for you. You may end up with a 13x15 or 17x8 art piece, and that is just fine because you can get a custom frame to fit it well.

Choose the Right Glass Thickness

When you want to get custom frames, you also have the option to choose the glass thickness. However, for the most part, you should not worry about getting anything other than 2.5-mm glass, which is the most affordable and common thickness level that you can get your hands on. Going for something thicker should only be taken into consideration when your art is going to have an increased risk of falling down, because the thicker the glass is the lesser of a chance it has to break.

Pick Frames that Work Well

When it comes to custom frames, you may face the problem of not having an easy time making your selections. The options are often quite extensive, so you could spend several hours trying to figure out what works well in your home, while also matching your personal style. For black and white artwork, you can experiment with all sorts of options, such as a variety of frame material, width, and color.

Another detail that you will have to decide on is the mat board. This will either have a noticeable impact or no impact at all in regards to how it looks on the wall because you can pick bordered or borderless. Without a border, the only thing that matters for looks is the art and the frame. But, adding a border means that you have to choose from a variety of colors and decide whether you want multiple layers.

With custom frames, you should feel confident enough to get any piece of art to display in your home.
