Framing Travel Photos
Posted by Liana Hornyak on Sep 01, 2020
Of all the disparate emotions 2020 has thrown our way, wanderlust is one that seemingly unites us all. Whether you had to cancel a trip this year or are just feeling stir-crazy, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the longing to be anywhere but your own living room. So, what better time to reflect on past adventures?
Not only do custom framed travel photos make the ultimate keepsake, but they’re perfect for updating the decor you stare at all day in a personal, timeless, and joy-promoting way.
Make a big statement.
Framed travel photos are great in pretty much any shape or size. But if you’ve got the space (and perhaps a penchant for drama), we recommend printing one in an extra-large size and custom framing it in a classic Gallery Frame for maximum impact.
The effect is also gorgeous in black and white, as demonstrated by Paula Coldiron.
Try something unexpected.
Not every travel photo needs to be of the vast landscape variety. Remember that pictures of people, animals, architecture, or exotic plants count too—as long as they remind you of a trip you took. Choosing an unexpected subject to frame and hang turns the original travel photo into a conversation piece with a story behind it, making it all the more special.
Go with the 'gram.
When taking your artwork from phone to wall, consider keeping the Instagram aesthetic by adding a weighted mat that has a wider bottom than top. (Email us for help placing your order.) This is an especially great option for images smaller in size, as it allows you to make the final framed art larger without lowering the photo’s resolution to our required 300 dpi.
Shake up your shelfie.
Not ready to commit to redecorating your walls? Take it slow by adding a custom framed travel photo to a shelf. Easy to move around or swap out as you please, it’s a low-risk way to reap the reward of year-round vacation vibes.
Grow a whole gallery.
Can’t decide among your favorite travel photos? Don’t! Dedicate an entire gallery wall to your love of travel. In order to maintain some sense of order, we recommend choosing a color scheme or common theme or destination—or let us simplify the process with our complimentary Gallery Wall Concierge Service.
