Framing

Framing

For our photographs we frame the papercuts using floating frames meaning the papercut is sandwiched between two sheets of glass. They cast beautiful shadows in the right light and has the added bonus of going with all decor styles.  All our papercuts come with the option of being framed or unframed, and with different framing options available there is something for all tastes.

They can either be framed in a Floating Tulip Wood frame or a Shadow Tulip Wood frame, stained in either white, light wood or dark wood.

The Shadow frames are deeper than the Floating frames so the shadows are more pronounced. The Shadow frames come with a white backing as standard but you can remove this and change it to a different colour to suit your taste after you have received your frame.  Whereas the Floating frames do not have a backing so will show through the wall behind.  Both frames are wall mountable but they are also chunky enough to be freestanding.

If you are not fussed about having "awesome shadows" you can frame your papercut in a standard frame with a contrasting background, or paint a piece of card the same as your walls or even use a bit of wallpaper, the options are endless but are sure to be effective.

Unframed papercuts are supplied lightly spray mounted to a piece of recycled ribbed card, carefully placed inside a cellosleeve and protected by a boarded envelope. If you need any more help with framing, send me a message or email hello@thecraftycalf.co.uk
