Little known fact about me: I worked in an art gallery / frame shop throughout high school and college. My love of art led me to randomly walk into an local gallery one day without a resume (or a clue about interviews!) and ask for a job. My naive little self thought it was going to be one of those fancy stand-around-in-a-dress-and-heels-all-day-and-supervise-the-art kind of jobs. Instead, the owner put me to work. And I mean WORK. Framing is no easy job, and I know first-hand about the intense time and craftsmanship that goes into each and every piece. That's why I was so impressed and excited to find out about Framebridge.
Framebridge takes the guesswork out of designing your wall art by letting you preview exactly what your finished piece will look like in the frame (and mat!) of your choice. You can upload a photo from your own personal collection or send in a piece you've already had printed. Plus, they're super affordable. I mean, I remember quoting prices to customers in excess of $500 for a large piece in a quality frame and mat. (And that was 10+ years ago!) The cost for a 16" x 20" at Framebridge? $99. Seriously. A 32" x 40"? $159. Mind blown.
Oh, and shipping is free. Yeah. No brainer, right?
My absolute favorite feature at Framebridge is their Instagram Frame your Feed option. You can connect your Framebridge account with your Instagram account, choose a photo, choose your frame, and voila! It shows up at your doorstep 100% ready to hang on your wall. Oh, and did I mention that each one is only $39? I chose the Newport frame with a clean white mat, and I just love how my tiny little squares came to life, don't you?
You can check them out at Framebridge.com and by searching the #frameyourfeed hashtag on Instagram.
