What’s the best frame choice for my Scottish art print?

Scottish landscape art prints can add a touch of natural beauty to any home decor and Carol’s prints all come signed and mounted, with an ivory coloured window mount and back to protect the print inside.

Carol McEwan Art print sizes. Detailed description of the 3 sizes of prints available - 8", 12" & 16"

There are 3 different sizes to chose from in Carol’s range. These are designed to fit standard frame sizes to give you plenty of choice in frame options from most high street retailers.

The 3 sizes are:

  • 8 x 8 inches
  • 12 x 12 inches
  • 16 x 16 inches

So this is the size of the glass and the size of the outer edge of the mount. (The size of the final frame on the outside will depend on how chunky you want your frame to be.)

Help choosing the right frame for your print.

Choosing the right frame for your art print can make all the difference in how it looks on your walls. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect frame for your Carol McEwan art print:

  1. Consider the style of the artwork: The style of the artwork should influence your frame choice. For contemporary Scottish landscape art prints, sleek and modern frames work well. For more traditional styles, ornate or antique-style frames may be a better fit.
  2. Think about the room décor: Consider the colours and materials in the room where the print will hang. A frame that matches the room’s colour scheme can help tie everything together.
  3. Choose a neutral frame colour: Neutral colours like black, white, or natural wood are versatile and can work with a variety of prints. They can also look good with most colour schemes so that when you re-decorate your frames will still look good.
  4. Select the right frame size: The frame size should complement the size of the artwork, so for example, a large frame on a small print can look overwhelming, whilst a small frame on a large print can look lost. Carol’s mount sizes have been carefully chosen to give the print plenty of space around the edge without making it look too small.
  5. Consider custom framing: Custom framing can be a great option for unique-sized Scottish landscape art prints. This allows you to choose the frame style, size, and matting that best suits the artwork. You can highlight a colour in the print with a cusom colour double mount for that extra bit of drama!

Where can I buy a frame for my art print?

If you are local to Dundee then I can recommend Elvie Framing. There is a wide selection of frames available and they are a friendly bunch who can offer great advice on what will suit your artwork and the quality is great – much better than just buying a frame ready made and having to frame the print yourself.

If you are local to Glasgow, then I would recommend the Glasgow Framing Workshop. I found them myself through a friend’s recommendation and I’ve used them a few times. I love the wide variety of contemporary frames they have and the customer service is amazing. Not only that, but the prices are extremely reasonable however, be prepared to wait about a week for framing as they tend to be quite busy, especially around Christmas time or other holiday seasons.

If you are local to Edinburgh, then Edinburgh Arts will be more than happy to help. This is a family run business with over 40 years of experience in framing and are also members of the Fine Art Trade Guild.

Here are some other online retailers who have a good selection of frames to fit Carol’s prints –

As mentioned above, a good source to find a quality framing company is the Fine Art Trade Guild website. They have a searchable map directory for finding a quality framer closest to you. The companies in their directory have to pass stringent quality test to be a part of the guild so you can trust the quality of framing you will receive for your print.

Extra help chosing a frame

If you are still unsure which frame you would like to buy and need help deciding, feel free to reach out to Carol for some advice. She can even mock up one of her prints in a frame to show you how it would look on your wall if you are having trouble deciding. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine until you see it mocked up.
