UNIQUE FRAMING SOLUTIONS

This is a collection of some truly original framing ideas that All For Show has brought into the world. You'll notice a preponderance of gig posters; many of these came to me with the intent of finding unique options on a budget. You'll see ready-made frames and thrift store finds that have been sanded, painted, cut down, and otherwise manipulated into becoming the perfect frame at a friendly price!

Gradient Frames
These bold HUM prints by Jay Ryan feature a gradient background - and I painted the interior lip of the frame to match - see Detail.

HUM Frames Detail
Here you can see the gradient on the interior lip of the frame and how they match the gradients of the prints themselves.
Fabric Mat
The fabric mat on this QOTSA print echoes the color and texture of the background.
Creative Re-Use
This Wolf Parade print is in a frame that started life as a bright turquoise. I sanded all that off, painted it black, and added gold leaf to echo the central figure. The liner was a stained, yellowed liner from an old frame, and I painted it to match the yellow-green of the brocade background.
Multi-Angle Frame
This Pitchfork print from The Bird Machine has unusual angles, so I showcased that with this hand-painted frame.
Hand Painted Frame
The unusual crop of this Smoking Popes gig poster lends itself to extending the image beyond the frame.

I had so much fun making this one that here's another picture!
Wretched Excess
This Yeah Yeah Yeahs print is from early in my career, but I stand by it! It's a ready-made frame, painted to match the print and given a wire "cove".
