Panoramic Perfection

Clever customers often turn to custom framing when they have a unique item of unusual dimensions. Foursided has many clients that present long, slender pieces like a panoramic skyline photo or in this case an accordion style print.

This prehistoric, dinosaur jungle piece is stunning and colorful on every front. Our client wanted to show off it's brilliant color and detail with a simple, modern frame.

An accordion style piece like this can be framed in multiple ways. One way is by keeping the natural folds and height of the piece in a shadowbox style, deep-set frame. We've done this in the past with vintage maps that want a special twist. 

For this piece, our client wanted to show off the detail of the illustration so we flattened the print with a drymount, gave it a soft eggshell mat border and finished it with a sleek, black metal frame.

This choice of frame and finish is excellent for any short, lengthy piece you've been trying to hang. Many Chicago skylines of this size and shape have crossed our framing tables at Foursided. Is yours next?
