Mounted on Your Wall

Mounted on Your Wall

Your wall is the place to display art.  Bare walls look bland and stark.  Well displayed art work on your wall adds warmth and character to a room.

My wife and I were having lunch in a trendy little cafe today.  Looking at the art work on the wall my wife commented on the size of the canvases.  (I’m guessing they were close to 40×50 inch prints.)  Spaced about a foot apart, several of them covered the pale green walls adding color to the room and enhancing the dining experience.

The really cool thing about our web site is you can design the finished product.  Pick the prints you want, and then you can pick the frame and matting.  By the time you are done you can have a unique combination designed for decor.

Choices

There are many art web sites online that don’t give you a choice.  You order what they have and that’s what you get.  At Fine Art by DB we give you choices.

Here is a good example.  If someone has a more modern decor and wants a gallery wrap print, they might order this…

Canvas Wrap Choice

 

However, someone with a more tradition decor might order this framed in a wood frame and matted with earth tones.

Framed, Matted and Glazed Print

We give you your choice.  The cool thing about it is you can see before you order.  The sizes and dimensions are to scale when you design your print.  Simply click on the Customize Framing link (right side) to choose your options.  There is also the popular configuration section if you’re having a hard time deciding.  Either way, the choices are all up to you.

Sizing Your Picture

Sizing Your Picture

As an artist, one of the biggest crimes is hanging a picture that is simply too small for the room.  An 8×10 above the sofa can look like a postage stamp. Sizing your picture is crucial for the best decor.

How Big?

How big should it be?

Well, that depends on the room and where you are going to hang it.  But, my rule of thumb is 1/2 (or more) of the width of the viewing area.

Let me give an example…

Suppose you have a space above the fireplace that is framed by book shelves.  Let’s say it is 6′ wide.  Then, your framed print should be at least 3′ wide, and allowing for some space on the edges, probably no more than 5′ wide.

Above the Sofa

Here’s another example…

If your sofa is 80″ wide, your print should be at least 40″ wide.  This allows the print to be seen by people facing the sofa.

Our Services

Our services allow you to size your print.  We offer Petite, Small, Medium, Large, Grande and Massive as our sizes.  You’ll notice these are print specific.  (i.e. One Petite might be 15.5 x 18.5, while another might be 16¾ x 19¾.)  The size is relative to its length and width.  (Note:  Grande and Massive  are often only available as prints due to shipping restrictions.  For those sizes, we recommend a local, custom framer.)

Using our services you can select your print, its size, a frame and mat (up to 3 layers) and the glass over the print.  Here’s a small and large of the same print…
