HOW TO PRINT AND FRAME YOUR BLACK AND WHITE WALL PORTRAITS


Hey there friends! So you have your files ready to go, but now you're wondering, how do I print these?? What size? Where to buy frames?? Don't worry, we'll cover it all!


(If you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about, start HERE).


First step : deciding what size to print.

As always, it's best to decide where you will be hanging these prints and make sure they will fit. My personal fav is to use painters tape and to 'map out' exactly what size and where the frames will go. That way you can know for sure everything will fit, and be spaced properly.

Here is what I'm talking about with the painters tape

My personal favorite is engineer prints. Staples has a great service for this, and you can pick from 3 sizes : 18×24in, 24x36in, and 36×48. I recommend sticking with the first 2 sizes, they are plenty big!

There are lots of great budget friendly options for framing your engineer prints. Here are a few from Target, Walmart, and Ikea.


Another option is Frame it easy! They will take care of your printing and your framing, all in one place! This option is less budget friendly, but you'll end up with a great product.

There you have it! Happy printing and framing :) Once you've finished hanging your prints, would you snap a picture and send it to me? I love seeing your final products!
