So you've picked one or a couple of prints from our collection for your little one’s bedroom. But have you thought about how you are going to frame and hang these prints?
Framing Using Store Bought Standard Frames
To Mat Or Not To Mat Your Kid's Prints
Benefits Of Using A Mat For Your Prints
- You don't have to find an exact-size frame to fit your artwork. You can buy a frame in the next size (or two) up, then cut a mat board to fit the frame.
- Mats create space between the frame and the art. This can create more of an impact for the print you have chosen.
- A bit of a budgeting cheat is that you can buy a print smaller than the space you are looking to fill, but frame it in a larger frame with a mat board so it fills the space.
Note: Make sure your mat board window is not the exact size of the print or it will fall straight through.
Frame Choice For Your Print
Simple timber, white or black frames will always help your print pop. But using vintage and ornate frames can be a stylish alternative.
Wall Art Banner
All of our designs are available as canvas banners, so if you're looking for wall art you can hang straight out of the box, then this is the perfect solution.
Our canvas banners are printed on quality artist canvas, so are durable and are finished with a Tasmanian Oak timber top and bottom frame. Complete with cotton cord they are ready to hang.
One thing I often hear is that customers buy prints but don’t get around to framing and hanging them.
Timber hangers are a quick and easy way to hang your print. Simply place the print between the front and back timber hangers at the top and bottom of the print and hang. The extra-strong magnets will keep your print in place.
Note: I suggest keeping the backing board provided with your print when you're hanging, as it provides a rigid structure. Your print will still hang but may curl slightly without it.
You can buy great quality art hangers from our friends at Made From Good Deeds
Clip Board Or Bulldog Clips
Another fun way to hang or display your print is with a clipboard. This is inexpensive and again is an easy swap in and out option. With the bull dog clips you can use wire to hang them from the roof, or hang them from a nail them in the wall.
Washi Tape Frame
If you are ok with sticking things to your walls this is another fun option for framing.
All you need for this is some Washi Tape in either a simple block colour or mix it up with fun patterns. Measure and mark out frames for your print to fit in and stick your print in the centre using Bluetac or double sided tape.

I hope that these tips help with framing and hanging your print. But don’t forget we print in-house so if you have a frame already but our standard sizes don’t fit it, we can custom print to the size of your frame or space.
