How to Display Vintage Car Photographs

If you’re new to buying fine art prints, you may not know where to start, but that’s okay! We’re here to help. Prints can be displayed in countless ways, and there’s no right or wrong way. How you display your prints will depend on the space that you have to fill and your own personal style preferences. 

Framing Prints

If you are ordering paper prints, you’ll need to get them framed before you display them. Framing behind glass protects the surface of the print from scuffs, scratches, and other damage. There are countless options for framing your prints. Depending on the size of the print, you may be able to find a premade frame that you can put the print into yourself. This is often the most budget-friendly option but comes with a smaller variety of frame styles. 

If you’re looking to customize your framing experience and put together the perfect frame to fit your style, you can look into custom framing options in your area. This will allow you to work directly with a framer to find exactly what you need.

Creating a Gallery Wall

A gallery wall can be a great way to create a unique display with your prints. You can mix and match any type of decor you want to put together into a gallery wall that conveys your interests and style. Prints can be displayed alongside original artwork, and hanging pieces of varying sizes helps to create visual interest.
