At Fabulous Frames & Art, our customers know that they can rely on our expertise and research skills to find the perfect artwork for any space, from a single fine art print for a spot in your home, to a complete corporate office interior. Of course, we provide custom-framing services as well. But, did you know that you can order images from us that are printed on alternative surfaces, many of them eco-friendly? Here are some samples on a variety of substrates for distinct design statements.

Above and below are samples of full-color prints on eco-friendly aluminum panels, which contain recycled content. The manufacturer utilizes post-production recycling methods, including the incorporation of created waste from the manufacturing process as well as the purchase of recycled material on the open market:

Below is a full-color print on sustainable, renewable bamboo plywood, which is a low-resin, open-grained material that takes stains and finishes exceptionally well. This bamboo substrate is LEED-certified MR 6 as a rapidly renewable resource, and is commonly known as the greenest material available in construction and design:

Although Fabulous Frames & Art is a custom-framing gallery with over 30 years of experience, we are proud to offer a stylish unframed alternative for clear acrylic:

As with the acrylic sample above, this substrate doesn’t need to be framed, but can instead be outfitted with industrial-looking hanging hardware, perfect for an industrial loft or contemporary office:

Another unique option is the canvas transfer, an intensely detailed process which transfers the ink from a paper art print onto a high-quality artist canvas. Skilled artisans then individually apply brushstrokes by hand to recreate the additional depth, texture, and richness found on the original artwork. The effect is of an original painting at a fraction of the cost! We can work with you to transfer almost any print onto canvas, and we can even canvasize your own artwork.
