Where can you buy nice framed prints (for hanging on walls) ??.
I’m needing some nice and reasonably priced pictures/prints in frames, to hang around the house (don’t have very many at the moment). Can anyone point me in the right direction, either online or otherwise. I think Ikea do a range of affordable prints and/or frames, but don’t recall being that thrilled with what they had last time I went (long time ago). I’m struggling to think of anywhere else to visit and/or browse online. Any tips, thanks.Posted 5 years agoWorldClassAccidentMember
My wife wants to change some of ours, a mixture of oils and prints. Some originals and some shop bought. Can probably sort you out some if you are interested. I think there are about half a dozen different ones she is bored of, including the ones stored. What sort of sizes and subjects?
The originals are mainly landscapes and the prints are abstract. We have a couple of Dagar that are still life’s, one is apples and the other is pairs. We had them on the stairs which amused me. MrsWCA didn’t see the cockney humour so they are in storage.
What sort of sizes? We have stuff from 30cm square up to 5 foot square.
Email in profile if you want photos. Based in Southampton if you want to collect.
I will need to check with MrsWCA which we are keepingPosted 5 years agoB.A.NanaMember
I was thinking more along the lines of modern(ish) art prints, as in Hockney type stuff and the like. Not really sure, but not really wanting photo landscapes. Grums alps/mountains stuff is very nice to view, but not what I had in mind, besides I’ve got plenty of quality negs/prints of me dangling from ropes in awe inspiring alps settings, which I’m not really that interested in displaying round the house, other than in my kit room.Posted 5 years ago
B.A.Nana – there are loads of really nice prints out there, and even some original work for decent prices. I can’t remember the sites off hand other than Red Bubble, but a google search is your friend 🙂
Got a few Jane Glue paintings on my walls (http://janeglue.co.uk/) which I rather like, but I have a sentimental attachment to much of her subject matter 😉Posted 5 years agoaPMember
But more seriously I have a dozen Ian Hamilton Finlay that I want framed by someone decent in west London. I had one done by an Edinburgh Gallery that is currently detached. I like floating mount but it seems not to stay attached.Posted 5 years ago
… Thinking about it, a couple of Richard deMarco signed prints that I’d like framed as well.
sorry for the hijack, but Grumm and Capt.K, do you actually sell much from your sites?
Seems a very competitive market
TBH not an awful lot. You need to put quite a lot if effort in to sell prints – get an exhibition together and move it round different venues etc.
Got a few good commissions through it though.Posted 5 years agoarthuralMember
I’m not sure if you are looking for prints or paints? These guys offer ready prints mounted on the frames http://www.my-picture.co.uk/ You can ask if any of your friends have some nice landscape photos. Photographers usually have plenty of images that are left on HDD’s and not used.Posted 5 years ago
