You may have seen a lot on blogs about typography and word graphics lately and wondered, “what is typography, exactly?” A very simple definition is that it’s the art of arranging text– that includes font, arrangement and a lot of other things that people spend a lot of time studying!
Beautiful typography isn’t really a trend because it’s always been around, but I suppose you could say that it’s been particularly popular in recent years. There was even a film made about my favourite font, Helvetica (nerdy confession).
This style is a great way to stamp a bit of personality on your home in a simple and chic way. My husband and I have a few items around our house with our initials, but you could also go for prints of the alphabet or phrases you like. Find a word or phrase that means something to you and frame it for your home! There are so many ways to express yourself, and this one is rather stylish.
Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.
Protects the artwork from dust and wilting so that it can be admired for many years.
Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
