Hey everyone...I'm hoping you can give me some advice. I just bought two pieces from the Disney Gallery and I want to frame them, but do not know how to go about it. Both of them are printed on 18x24 paper, but the designs are only about 4x21.
The way I see it, I have a few options. Option 1: Suck it up and buy two 18x24 frames to put them in. While this is more expensive, it would preserve the original paper. The problem with this is that these frames would take up a lot of wall space, which I don't really have. Plus, there's a LOT of white space around the design (and even if I get a couple of mats, I'm not so excited about all the empty space).
Option 2: Cut them down so that I can buy two 10x24 frames instead. This takes care of my aversion to empty white around the pictures and it takes up less wall space. The obvious downside is that I have now cut the pictures, something I haven't yet been able to bring myself to do.
I would appreciate anyone's advice on this matter. Has anyone else had to do the something similar? Please help me. Thanks everyone.
