Sprout Gallery prints are designed to work with ready made frames if you choose not to get your artwork custom framed.
Ready made frames for both size prints can be purchased from IKEA, Target, Big W, Kmart etc. The prints look best in frames with matting board. Look for frames with a matting board window with the following measurements.
Prints have plenty of overhang for adhering to the back of the matt. It is best to use Scotch magic tape because it is acid free and easy to peel off. If you do not wish to use frames with matting board, A4 and A3 frames will fit the print perfectly. Similarly frames 8 x 10 inches and 11 x 14 inches without matting board can also be used but will need to be carefully trimmed.
Print paper is made using expensive, high quality Hahnemuhle or Canson cotten rag. It is best kept flat and in cellophane until ready to frame.
Try and handle as little as possible to avoid smudging.
