As the weather chills up and we spend more time inside, our eyes wonder around the house wanting to settle on something amazing. Extra large pieces hung on the wall will do nothing but delight as they make an enormous statement in your home. We’ve put together some ideas for extra big art that you probably already have lying around.
Matt and I have always seen ourselves as entrepreneurs. We are naturally driven by the challenges and excitement that everyday holds when you own your own business. Over five years ago our scribbled down dream became a reality when we opened the doors as Le Frame Shoppe.
The word ‘montage’ comes up in custom framing quite a bit. This simply describes piecing together different items to make one beautiful end result – something that I think we do very well! :) We’ve rounded up some beautiful montages to inspire your next project.
It's the perfect time to start thinking about the Christmas countdown! We love the fun and tradition of advent calendars in our house. Every morning it’s a mad race to officially mark it one day closer to Christmas. Bring the family together with these simple DIY ideas!
Object framing has to be one of my favourite things. Capturing sweet memories tell your story in the form of wall art and the best part – these artful pieces can be just about anything!
Thanksgiving 2018. Another year of memories, smiles, people and places that make us thankful.
If you’ve ever been curious about what goes into our frame designs, we’re discussing our most frequently asked question: should you frame for the artwork or the area it’s going into, aka the décor?
We serve all sorts of clients and work on many different projects for all kinds of needs, but there is one design request that keeps coming up…
"Life is better framed" is a cute tagline and sounds great, but it means so much more. A note from the Framepro…
It’s no secret that I’m an antique fanatic so when clients bring their vintage finds to our shoppes I’m over the moon! I appreciate the warmth and character that these pieces bring to a space and wanted to show you some of my favourites!
I’m one of those people who like to be organized. When everything has a spot I breathe easy. So this DIY ribbon organizer makes me happy! There are versions all over the web that inspired us so we wanted to give it a try and show you how we put ours together.
It’s that time of month again! I’m not sure where June has gone but it did bring us our top pins, which we are always excited to share! Plus I’ve included a fun download that both you and the kids will love!
Now that school is out for most, kids from all over are going to run around and grow their collections! It’s great to watch their intent and appreciation, as they gather their cherished items, absolutely needing that one last rock! I never want to stifle their sense of curiosity and passion but it is nice to at least help them organize. Here are four great ways to display your child’s favorite collection.
Posters are a great alternative to original art and can give you that design punch for a lot less if treated correctly. On this blog, I wanted to show you that there are many ways to frame up your poster to achieve a high-end result.
We’re officially in the month of June! Where time goes I will never know. We are thrilled that you like our new BASIX line and that we’ve seen it used on a lot of pieces this month. We’ve had a busy month working on some amazing Framepro Service projects for our commercial clients and as always have been inspired by our fantastic clientele in our three retail shoppes. Here are our top 3 pins from the month that have inspired you!
It’s wedding season and I love it! Every bride has certain must-haves that make their wedding their own. It’s these pieces that they’ll look back on with pride and adoration as they think back to their “I-dos”. It’s only fitting then that these special items get the right treatment after the wedding to keep the memories preserved and going strong long after the big day.

Outdoor living season is here! No matter how big or small your yard or patio is, it's time to kick back and enjoy in a space that is serene and beautiful. With a little creativity even the tiniest spot can be turned into an oasis.
We’re undergoing some renovations at home so it was time to go through my wall art and consider what pieces to keep and which ones to donate. Letting go of some items was invigorating but intimidating.
Our goal has always been to show what custom framing can do for any item or art piece. To give people that ‘wow’ moment when they see their item at its full potential.

We recently had a blast doing a presentation for The Lakeshore Camera Club. Interesting topics were discussed and I thought that some of the key points might benefit you. So today’s blog is all about photography and framing.
