We suggest to frame the print as it helps making it stand out in a room. You can decide for a frame that fits exactly the size of the print or for one a size bigger with a passe partout. This makes the print look bigger in a room.

We’ve chosen standard sizing for our prints to make it easy for you to find frames. The size of your print is on the certificate of authenticity. If you decide for vintage or second hand frames, we recommend you measure it before buying since older frames can have unusual dimensions.

2. Our expert's tip: remove the glass from the frame

Our printer’s tip is to remove the glass from its frame. We use a wonderful textured high quality paper and it would be a shame to hide it under glass reflections. The colours of the print won’t fade away, even if they are often exposed to sunlight as we use UV inks for printing. If the print gets a little dusty, use a small painting brush to delicately remove it.

3. Hang your print on your wall with hanging strips

Pick the perfect spot for your print in your house, do some measuring to place the print exactly where  you want it. When it comes to the hanging the print, we love the 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips. They are removable and don’t damage walls. We recommend taking the ones that can carry up to 6kg just for extra safety.

Et voilà! Your print is ready to be on your wall!
