The digital revolution has made photographers out of all of us. But those images don’t do much to remind you of a loved one, a recent trip or to showcase an artistic endeavor if they’re trapped on your hard-drive. Print out your photos, or have them done professionally through any number of web sites, and bring them in to us to set them free. And remember, it doesn’t just apply to digital images. Open up the shoebox under your bed and let us help you display them creatively and protect them for future generations.
Here are some great ideas from Larson-Juhl, taken from Larson-Juhl.com.

Frame your Hero! What better way to pay tribute to the special people who defend our country. This can be a birthday present for a veteran or a way to honor someone who is no longer with us.

Here are five photos framed individually and then collaged and layered to create a special grouping. This is a great way to frame a series so they show as a unit.
All too often photos are placed into photo frames or simple readymades when they could look so much more special in custom frame designs. There should always be an air space between the glass and the photo…something that is often neglected unless it is custom framed.
When choosing mats and frames for your photos, think about the subject, era, color, style, and substrate. When you pay attention to each of these categories, your frame design will be the most flattering to the photo.
Unless you own the digital file or negative to create a new photo, you should always treat photos like any other work of art by using conservation grade framing materials.
