Unusual photo framing/mounting ideas?
February 19, 2016 10:45 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for unusual ways to display/mount photos that escape the usual bland thin-frame-white-border look.

Leaning more toward classy than thats-uh-creative, something that would still look nice on a living room wall, not just an craft shop or art studio.

Not DIY, but something I could order online. The images could be people, animals, landscapes, abstract, a wide range. Large, small, any shape, I'm open to anything.

One idea I've found is the plywood/bamboo mounts from Plywerk. I know oversized canvas prints are another option. Anything else?

The metal prints from Social Print Studio are really really nice.

This Kickstarter is a frame that stores multiple postcard-sized images, and lets you switch out the front one for display.

If you're looking for solutions for photos that you haven't already had printed, I just got my first order from Fracture and am pretty happy with them. They're dead simple to hang, they put the emphasis on the photo and they look great.

We have a wall full of image blocks that I like a lot. It took a fair amount of planning and thinking to lay it out and decide what images to put where, but the result is nice. Also because they hang on the wall with a wood cleat, it's easy to take them down and replace them with a different image (of the same size).

How about a picture rail and hanging rod system? Clean, adjustable, and gallery-like.
