As the adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. So it seems appropriate that there are seemingly a thousand styles of picture frames from which to choose for displaying all of your treasured photos regardless of your decor.
For you techies out there, digital frames are all the rage. These electronic frames can store scores, hundreds, or thousands of photos. Digital frames started out expensive. But thanks to wholesale frame outlets and online surplus stores, you can now get a cheap digital frame if you shop around.
For those of you who prefer a traditional photo frame over an electronic one, options abound. Choose from wood, metal, or acrylic. Plain, or painted in any color you can imagine. Antique frames are fun ways to create a nostalgic ambiance or showcase an older photo.
If you have a treasured photo or poster, you may wish to go with a custom frame. Custom frame shops will help you select a frame that suits the photo or poster well, and they will cut a mat board that will work as a coordinated and attractive background for your frame. Custom frame shops also will explain the differences between anti-glare and museum quality glass.
Even if you have a three dimensional object you want to showcase in a frame, you can! That is where a shadowbox comes in. It is a box topped with glass that will showcase your item for all to see.
Frames are an inexpensive way to update your decor and to keep your loved ones and treasured memories close to you at all times. You can buy photo frames and switch out the pictures to keep things fresh.
