Don’t let your naked prints languish!

September 16, 2009

Most people are sadly afflicted with naked printitis. It’s the habit of getting photographs and sticking them in a shoe box. It doesn’t matter if the photos are family snapshots, school pictures or professional portraits. You get some 4×6, 5×7, maybe a 8×10 and they stay naked in the envelope.

Some photographs do make it to the “family album” but more often than not, the album sits on a shelf somewhere, forgotten. Let’s be honest, when was the last time you took your photo album out?

A few lucky prints make it to a picture frame. THAT is how it should be! A good photo is something that should be enjoyed all the time! It has to be out in the world!

While small frames are great to place on shelves and desks, their impact is very localized. How about kicking it up a notch? Most homes have lots and lots of blank walls. Why not put those blank canvases to good use and hang photographs on the wall. Good photos not only connect us to our past, but they are also a piece of artwork.

Even if you only have small photographs, consider using mats. You can even find collage mats which have openings for multiple images in a single frame. This provides a great way to display small prints.

We try hard not to let our prints leave the studio naked.
