How to Print and Frame Photos Online
Printing and framing your photos used to be a bit of a chore. You’d have to go to a shop that printed photos, then find a framing shop, get quotes, search for a frame style you liked, and then wait days or weeks before returning to the store to collect your image.

You can even send framed photos to a loved one as a gift. We believe that being surrounded by special memories makes a house feel like home—and that framing those memories shouldn’t be a chore.

Tips for choosing the right photo to frame online
When printing your digital photos to be framed, there are a couple of things to consider:
- Choose an image that you love and has meaning for you. For example, photos of grandchildren or wedding photos are typically a hit with parents and grandparents if you’re sending a gift for a loved one.
- Make sure the image you choose is of high enough quality, is in focus, with good lighting. A typical digital photo taken from a phone can usually be blown up to 16x20 or more if the lighting’s good.
- Think about editing the image using different filters. For example, if you want to create a more sophisticated look, why not consider black and white, which can work great on almost any photo, from landscapes to baby pictures.
What to consider when you’re choosing a frame
When you’re selecting a frame, here are a few tips to help you choose one that’s right for you:
Try not to worry about matching your style of frame with the colors from the photo. While some colors can suit different frames better (for example, reds work well with dark woods), what’s important to consider is the tone of your photo. For instance, if it’s a fun family photo, pick a colorful frame, while a classic frame may work better for wedding photos.
Think about your style. Is your home simple and casual, eclectic, formal, or modern? For example, light-colored frames work well in a relaxed setting, whereas darker frames can better suit a more traditional home.
Consider your wall colors. If you have plain white walls, a colorful frame will make your picture stand out, whereas a simple gold frame could work well on a wall with patterned wallpaper.
Look at how busy your photo is and consider this when choosing a frame. For example, if the image has bright colors, a plain frame might work well to ensure the photo stands out rather than clashing with the frame.
