Framing your art can be a daunting task...
Framers can offer a plethora of options in wood finishes, colors, widths, and styles as well as a range of prices leaving one overwhelmed and frustrated. I have found a few resources that can help make framing less intimidating.

I like how Daniel Grant breaks it down to frame (or no frame), matte, and glass options that is dependent on the type of art you are displaying.
Lets look at an article by Dan with emptyeasel.com on How to Match the Correct Frame to Your Art. You can read it here.

Did you notice a consistent theme with all three of these articles? The writers all capitalized on the same points...When choosing a frame, choose one that will not take away from the art, but rather compliment it, consider what you are framing, and consider where it is going to hang.
I hope these articles have helped to simplify the task of finding just the right frame to showcase your investment for many years to come.
