In today's modern world, holding a printed photo is rewarding in itself. Going the extra mile and framing it is even more satisfying, but frames aren't your only option to show off a favorite print. Why not explore some more artistic and interesting ways to display your photos with our creative wall décor options?
Try Texture: Canvas Prints & Wood Prints
Canvas prints are hugely popular in the realm of photo printing. Your photo is printed directly onto woven canvas, which is then wrapped snug around wooden stretcher bars. The final product has a sophisticated gallery feel, but is flexible enough to complement any decorating style depending on your photo choices.
Wood prints are newer to the wall décor scene. They provide a lightly sanded texture which is well sought-after for those creating a rustic chic home. The grain and tone of the birch wood plank shows through your photo—slightly neutralizing colors to create a softened look.
Capture the Light: Acrylic Prints & Metal Prints
Want to see your photos truly shine? Take a look at metal and acrylic prints.
Metal prints are as sleek as they come. Your photo is printed onto a slim yet sturdy aluminum panel. With the metallic surface and a high-gloss finish, this is a stunning way to display colorful, high-contrast photos in your home or workspace.
Acrylic prints offer equal vibrancy with a modern, three-dimensional twist. Your photo is printed onto museum-quality, .22” thick acrylic glass. As light is drawn into the optically clear acrylic, it enhances the rich color and crisp detail of your photo.
Get Noticed: Mounted Prints and Standouts
As custom wall décor goes, mounting blocks are a classic. Your photos are printed on standard or premium photo paper, then cleanly mounted to durable black mounting boards for a simple look that pops. Mounting boards vary in thickness:
- Mounted Prints: ¾” thick
- Premium Mounted Prints: 1” thick
- Standouts and Premium Standouts: 1 ½” thick
Mounted prints make a bold statement on any wall, and you can also use the thick standouts upright on a flat surface, such as in your bookshelf styling to offset a stack of novels or decorative elements.
The way you decorate your home is an expression of your taste. Although framed prints will never go out of style, don’t feel confined to that medium. Try something different for your next photo or gallery wall—you’ll love the finished look.
