So you’ve got a gallery full of images staring you in the face. You’re a good person so you don’t want to let those images die on a hard drive or USB. I know you didn’t just pay a bunch of money to have photos made solely for the purpose of posting them on social media either. No, you need to display these images with great love and care on your walls, tables, mantles, armoires, dressers, and anywhere else inspiration may strike.
If you’re anything like us, being presented with so many photos may bring about the dreaded DECISION PARALYSIS *cue dramatic music*. So how do you decide what gets put on the wall, what gets put into a photo album and what gets uploaded to Facebook for your aunt Carol to comment on?
Rest easy, because we’re about to tell you what photos to print and where to put those photos with lots of great options for displaying and storing your favorite prints!
So obviously the simplest way to display your prints is to stick them in a frame. But there’s a looooot of frames out there. A visit to a store like Michaels to shop for frames can cause time to fold inward onto itself, make you question the nature of existence, and forget why you went there in the first place. It’s so much easier to sit on your buns at home and let us show you some cool frames to display your precious memories in, wouldn’t you agree?
Yo dawg, I heard you liked art, so here’s these Umbra Prisma matte brass photo frames so you can put your art inside some art. These would be great for prints of creative portraits or interesting detail shots.

What is life but time spent inside a series of boxes? Your house is basically a big box that you live in. Your car? That’s just a box with wheels. So naturally photos of important life milestones such as your wedding or a new kiddo are perfectly at home in a box. Cats love boxes, children love boxes, we love boxes. Here are some boxes in which to stash your memories.

But that’s okay, because you can weaponize your photo album by breaking them out to show their teenage friends embarrassing baby photos. Everyone wins!
