I found out about Framebridge the old fashioned way; I saw an ad inside an interiors magazine. I am a huge fan of the current trend of a White-Simply-Framed-Gallery-Wall and the ad had that exactly: colorful art in white frames with a kid playing with his beach ball. I ripped it out as a reminder.
Framebridge really does make something that’s usually complex into something so straightforward. You don’t have to go into a frame shop and go through all of those samples of frames and inevitably get upsold into something you didn’t really intend to buy. You can upload digital files to their site or send in your artwork (they mail you a prepaid tube) or print right from your Instagram account. What is additionally refreshing is that Framebridge has great taste, so you don’t have to sift through thousands of grainy images on a mass market website that has seemingly been designed with Soviet era technology during the Cold War. I am a huge fan of the Irvine, which is a clean white frame, and the Marin, which is a natural wood frame.
