It is most common to frame black and white photos in black, silver or gray, but if black frames aren’t your thing, try wood tones for a more natural look. The two frames on the left are from our the Larson Juhl Homestead collection and the one on the right is framed in Larson Juhl Devon.


This shows one vintage photo framed in three different colors of Larson Juhl Devon moulding. The frames may seem wide for the size of the photo, but there is no mat border so the wider moulding helps make up for its absence.



Larson Juhl Klavier frames are timeless classics…a great choice when framing military portraits, past or present.

Frame your Hero! What better way to pay tribute to the special people who defend our country. This can be a birthday present for a veteran or a way to honor someone who is no longer with us.

Here are five photos framed individually and then collaged and layered to create a special grouping. This is a great way to frame a series so they show as a unit.


All too often photos are placed into photo frames or simple readymades when they could look so much more special in custom frame designs. There should always be an air space between the glass and the photo…something that is often neglected unless it is custom framed.

When choosing mats and frames for your photos, think about the subject, era, color, style, and substrate. When you pay attention to each of these categories, your frame design will be the most flattering to the photo.

Unless you own the digital file or negative to create a new photo, you should always treat photos like any other work of art by using conservation grade framing materials.
