If you are ready to frame an illustrations and looking for some inspiration, maybe these ideas will help you! In my webshop I sell prints in three different sizes: the small size is A4, the medium size is 29,5 x 37,5 cm, and the large size is 60 x 80 cm. It is very easy to find a frame for the small and large size prints as these sizes are standard. For the medium size, however, this can be a bit more challenging. The standard A3 size did not feel right for the illustrations that I made, so I adjusted the size. Because of this I am sometimes asked how to frame the medium sized prints in a nice way.
So here we go! I will give a few examples of ways to frame them, from cheaper to more expensive options.
You could frame the illustration in a slightly larger frame size and use a passe-partout, or stick it onto off-white paper. The frame I used for the photo is this one from IKEA (30 x 40 cm). I also love to shop at second hand stores and buy frames there, which gives me the possibility to work with different background papers and frame sizes. But a standard 30 x 40 cm frame works perfect as well.
The more expensive option is to ask a framer to create a custom made fitted frame. The Dutch website ‘De lijstenfabriek’ also offers frames in many different sizes. Sometimes a custom made frame by a local framer is just as expensive, depending on the material. When I go the framer I often choose for a metal (and therefore thinner) frame with a layer of wood veneer, but also love the natural oak wood frames.
Another option is to choose a frame with a glass front and backside, which is available in different sizes. There are many different brands who make glass frames, I bought the oakwood version from this website. It’s also nice to add a little flower or sprig to the glass frame.
I hope this information gives you some inspiration when looking for frames and maybe you can find more framing inspiration on my Instagram page.
World Animal Protection + Dille & Kamille + Liekeland
I’m so happy to finally show you my second collaboration with World Animal Protection. This time together with my favorite store Dille & Kamille. 🤍 Our previous campaign was aimed at wild animals. This time the profit goes to the industry animals: the pigs, cows, chickens, sheep and ducks, who we visualized as walking free in the wild. The cards and envelopes are for sale online and in Dille & Kamille stores!
My largest originals!
After an exhibition at Buutvrij, my 6 largest illustrations are back home and now for sale in my webshop! They are all framed in oak wood or black metal.
Let me know if you have any question or when you would like to see them in real life.
