Personalized Picture Frames

Collection of framed prints on shelves with white, black, and wood picture frames

Beyond our assortment of frame colors and sizes, we offer several different options for customizing your framed prints. With most of our personalized frames, you can choose the type of frame edge that suits your style the best, whether you like contemporary, modern, or classic curve. Another custom option is adding colored mats to form a border around the image. Choosing a top and bottom mat allows you to vary the frame dimensions as you like. For example, you could use an 8 x 10 frame with a 4 x 6 photo, using the added matting to set off the image with a professional look. Another excellent and unique option for custom framing is to choose glass picture frames. Why? Because you can personalize the frame with laser engraving – a technique that allows you to add text, such as a baby’s birth date or your wedding date, as well as graphics – to the frame for a keepsake that is as strong and durable as your memories.

Best Picture Frames for Family Photos

Collection of framed prints including white frames and canvas prints

Whether you’re shopping for picture frames for photos of your kids, school photos, pictures of grandparents, recent vacation pics—or another type of family photo—frames that are sturdy and well-designed are key so they stand the test of time. We love the idea of using double wooden prints, which open like a book using hinges and offer maximum impact with a slim footprint. The array of layout choices allow you to fit several photos, text, and graphic elements into frames that perfectly capture cherished memories. Wooden prints also make wonderful photo gifts. Another excellent choice for family photos are our easel-backed canvases. Available in both horizontal and vertical display and 5×7 and 8×10, these wrapped canvas prints stand on their own with the attached easel. You can create your own custom design with a quote, pattern such as wood-grain, and pictures to make a completely unique design statement.

Best Hanging Picture Frames for Wall Art

Photo tiles with art and framed photos with a happy coupleWhile it’s a joy to appreciate your photos and wall art when they’re displayed, actually hanging your prints is a chore not everyone relishes. Fortunately, Shutterfly offers a number of frame hanging options that make the job go smoothly. If hanging framed pieces isn’t your favorite, it might be a good idea to think beyond the traditional wooden frame. Our frame up wall art is a beautiful choice as it is made of clean, modern aluminum with a white base that makes colors pop. These slim metal prints, available in glossy or matte finish, include a hanging block attached to the back of the frame so putting them up on your walls is a breeze. Another great choice for easy hanging wall art is our framed photo tiles. Printed on Shutterfly’s signature card stock, these lightweight 8×8 photos come with everything you need to create a hassle-free photo wall. You get a lightweight frame, a layout that can include up to 9 photos, your choice of color or black and white prints, and double-sided adhesive that allows you to hang your photos with no holes or nails (and no sticky residue).

Best Picture Frames for a Gallery Wall

A gallery wall is a collection of photos, art, and other meaningful objects displayed in a harmonious arrangement on the wall. Pictures on a gallery wall can be framed or frameless. Your frames can match, for example, all black or white, or they can be mismatched but complimentary. Shutterfly offers a tutorial on how to design a gallery wall which will walk you through the steps of planning your design and making your gallery wall dream a reality. One idea for a gallery wall is to start with a ready-made collection of framed works. Our multi-piece wall art sets are ideal for getting a big head start on your gallery wall. You can start with a two-piece set, a three-piece set—all the way up to nine framed prints. Instant gallery wall! The best part is these sets are available in a wide range of materials, just like our single piece wall art. So, you can choose from canvas prints, metal prints, acrylic prints, and more. In your gallery wall, you might choose to have large-size framed prints as a focal point. In that case, definitely check out our 30×40 and 36×36 mounted wall art options.

Best Wedding Picture Frames

Wedding picture frames with different couples in different settings

Choosing picture frames for your wedding photos can feel like a lot of pressure. Many couples fret over making sure their framed wedding framed prints match the significance of the day. Fortunately, our collection offers the perfect, curated selection that offers lots to choose from without overwhelming you. We love the idea of elegant wedding vow collages, which include photos and messages, such as your wedding date, names of the bride and groom, and perhaps part of your vows or other meaningful words. These prints are available in signature card stock with or without a luminous pearl shimmer. Another fabulous option for wedding picture frames is glass prints. Not only do glass prints allow light to shine through, the prints can include messages on the glass to accompany your luminous photos. Glass prints are available in an array of styles, including freestanding curved, flat glass with an acrylic stand, and with beveled edges. Any of our wedding prints make wonderful wedding gifts, too. Another elegant option for wedding photos are our framed metallic art prints which include gallery quality premium cardstock with real foil accents that add a luxe touch. Consider going with a modern farmhouse look and mix the metallic prints with our rustic frames.

Unique Picture Frames

Custom hanging canvas prints and photo tiles for holiday decoration

Who doesn’t want their pictures to be a little different from everyone else’s? Beyond the personalized frames Shutterfly offers to set your prints apart from the rest, our unique picture frames allow you to really show your style. If you like the look of traditional wood frames in the more formal parts of your home, or to go with more serious photos, unique frames give you the opportunity to branch out in other rooms that are more casual, like the kitchen or the kids’ room—even the bathroom. For this design choice we love our hanging canvas prints. Printed on true artist, cotton-poly canvas, they’re available in an array of sizes and designs, which can include messages and graphics, such as a heart. You can also customize the bar color to match your home or office décor. Another choice for unique frames are our cute clip photo frames. These easel-backed 8×10 wood composite frames are designed to hold a 4×6 or 5×7 photo with a metal clip. Clip photo frames look totally fresh, make unique gifts, and the clip makes it a cinch to swap out photos whenever you want. Our clip frames can also be customized with text and graphics too.
