Mail In Art for Mom!

Posted by Greta Braddock on Mar 24, 2021

Heads up: Mother's Day is May 9th. While a printed and framed personal photo always makes a great Mother’s Day gift, you also have the option to send in something special to custom frame for mom—and the extra planning that process takes can definitely be worth its weight in extra WOW factor!

Here’s a few fun ideas for meaningful mail-in pieces to create a custom framed Mother’s Day gift mom will adore. But hurry! Full Service orders with delivery in time for Mother’s Day requesting a mailer must be placed by Monday, March 29th. (If you have your own packaging and want to print your label to send art in, the deadline is Monday, April 5th.)

Photobooth strips

No longer stuck to your fridge or gathering dust in a drawer, a collection of photobooth strips creates a fun, feel-good photo collage in a Gallery frame.

A vintage photo

Spark nostalgia by looking back to the past and custom framing a vintage photo that’s been hiding in an album. (Don’t want to send your treasured photo in? Consider scanning your image and having us print and frame it.)

Flowers in frame

Put beautiful blooms inside a custom frame, and she’ll be able to enjoy them all season long!

A memorable map

It's hard for mom to travel these days, so remind her of a favorite location she’s been—or wants to go soon—with a custom framed map.

Children’s art

A mini masterpiece by her kids or grandkids is at once sentimental and artful—and your kiddo will be thrilled to be a part of this heartwarming present. Here are 8 tips to get started.

 Feminist artwork

Gift mom a piece of art of a woman, by a woman. Case in point: Caroline Walls, who proclaims: "It’s incredibly important that female artists continue to explore what is truly ours."

Note that these deadlines do not apply to textiles, Max Plexiboxes, and artwork larger than 30x40". And if you can't make the deadline to send artwork in for framing, you have until Friday, April 23rd to print and frame a personal photo for mom this year with standard shipping in time for Mother's Day.
