When I search for cheap art or affordable art, I'm not searching for merely a retracted poster. I've done that route before and all sorts of that happened was the poster stayed in the original tube forever. It was an incredibly impulsive purchase and I have since learned my lesson.
Allow to me explain my way of thinking and my experience, so that you can may stay away from the pitfalls yourself of purchasing posters online. My original intention was to take my cheap art print to some custom frame shop and select a straightforward frame. I thought it was an amazing idea as well as a great way to cut costs. Was I ever wrong! The cheap art turned up in the poster tube and I threw it into my trunk searching for each day (within my 50 hour work week) to get a matching frame.
Months past before I walked right into a custom frame shop and asked the framing expert simply how much it could cost to frame my cheap art and the answer was shocking. Not only was I bombarded with questions like, “Do I want a mat for my art, possibly a double mat which has a v groove, what thickness frame am I considering and think about the frame colour?” Of course, there were the glass issue, non glare, regular or a treatment? When I tossed ideas around, I was floored by the cost; big money to frame my cheap, sorry…affordable art. Needless to say, my poster remains in their tube although thankfully, my walls shall no longer be white.
I went back online again having a clear cut goal. I was trying to find cheap art that's already framed. It wasn't as easy as I thought. There are many websites promoting cheap art, but a majority of ones usually do not are the frame. The custom framers out there has to be having a field day! Oddly enough, a large number of sites end up sending you to a similar company. Talk about a monopoly.
But, I was determined to find affordable art which has a frame already onto it. During these economic times, everyone wants to spend less. But essential is not waste time. I'm a working mother, with school age children who keep me running in all directions. I never get the time and energy to investigate shops, for myself or my home. But, I do love it when my home looks good.
Wall art decor , ideally with a straightforward frame that will fit the produce and clash with my house decor is the perfect, affordable decorative accessory. Lets face it; painting is a large undertaking and furniture costs a lot of money. My means to fix adding colour, styling to home is affordable framed art. I'll leave the posters on the teenagers!
