We have been searching for a unique piece of oversized artwork
for an awkward wall for sometime now. CB2's
new catalog for spring 07' had the most brilliant idea for cool oversized artwork with their Record Album Frame
$12.95If you are creatively inclined and wish to take on the project you'll need a large file digital picture [8-10 MP] or an oversized poster that you don't mind cutting up. Frames are 12.5" squared. We are blessed to have access to an oversized printer at the office [that is if the boss will permit our request to print] if you are not as lucky but have an image, check with your local Kinko's
. If a Kinko’s near you has blueprint capabilities they will most likely be able to assist with your large output/or be able to tile your print in the designated size. Trim out your prints and frame.
Framing guidelines: These frames are pretty easy to hang but be sure to build a grid first before nailing [we use newspaper and masking tape to position on the wall where we want first]. Don't forget to measure the actual hanging apparatus on the back side...if it's 2 inches from the top of the frame remember that when planning your nail position. These tips will allow you to have a perfect grid. Remember, measure twice...nail once.
