Go oversized for a major impact

Here at Framebridge, we’re fond of a certain catchphrase, albeit with a slight modification: Go big and go home. Because in our opinion, there’s nothing more striking in your space than an oversized photo or artwork in a beautiful frame. (OK, we also love a large gallery wall, but that’s another story.) 

On our website, we frame digital and physical items up to 32” x 40.” Here’s a helpful pricing guide based on the size and type of your piece. But if you want to frame something even larger, all you have to do is drop it off at a Framebridge store near you. There, we frame photos and items up to 40" x 60." How’s that for some big news?

Our largest sizes, offered exclusively in-store: 

Extra Grand: items up to 40" x 48"
Digital photo or art: $350
Physical print or art: $425

Mega: items up to 40" x 60"
Digital photo or art: $450
Physical print or art: $625

What we love to frame oversized:

In a nutshell, pretty much everything. But there are certain types of photos and items that especially lend themselves to large framing. Outdoor travel photos might be our favorite. Whether you went hiking in Big Sur, skiing in Big Sky Country, or camping under the Big Dipper, your big outdoor adventures deserve to be celebrated in, you guessed it, a big frame. When you print and frame travel images at such a large scale, you’re able to capture every nuance which in turn helps you remember every moment.   

We also love framing large objects in oversized frames. Sure, you can tack a flag, scarf, or vintage map to the wall, but framing it will elevate the piece (and your space), making it feel extra special and look extra sophisticated. Our designers take great care when framing your unique object, typically attaching textiles to foam board for a smooth mounted finish. If you want your 3D object to really pop, consider a float mount for the ultimate wow factor.

Where we love to hang oversized frames:

Large photos and art look incredible above a large piece of furniture like a couch, bed, desk, or credenza. Finding the perfect hanging height is a personal choice, but our rule of thumb is to make sure the bottom of your frame is 7”-10” above the top of your furniture.

Large frames look equally amazing on empty walls of all sizes. An oversized image on an oversized wall is a no-brainer, but don’t discount smaller spaces. Entry ways, hallways, stairwells, and even bathrooms are prime real estate for sizable frames. With these spaces, we suggest hanging your art so that the vertical center (the mid-point between the top and bottom of the frame) is at about 57 inches above the floor. 

Here’s a handy guide to help you learn more about perfect hanging heights.

How oversized framing works:

When framing your large photos and art, the end result should not only be absolutely beautiful, but also expertly made. We use the highest-quality materials and framing techniques to ensure the long-term safety and preservation of your piece, which our designers build by hand at our studios.

All you have to do is bring your photo or art to a Framebridge store. If your image is digital, we can also pull it up in-store. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will help you select a frame style (and mat or float mount, if you prefer). That’s it! We take it from there and contact you when your masterpiece is ready to be picked up.
