Selecting the right frame for you art takes practice and some skill. Many pieces of art don't even need to be framed, while others depend on the protection and or the physical delineation frames provide.
At buyoutsidethebox.com we typically encourage our artists to not include the frame in the sale of their art, however there are exceptions to this rule. There are two important reasons for this. One this makes the shipping less expensive and keeps our cost to you down, and two we don't think anyone should be swayed in their decision to buy a piece of art based on the frame that comes with it.
Framing can be quite expensive if you're not careful. Most collectors have a healthy relationship with a favorite framer. Listen to their advice, but always keep in mind your own tastes. There's nothing worse than seeing good art in a bad framing job.--Ruth Mitchell
