As you may know, I recently turned 27. Being closer to 30 than to 21 really has brought a lot of changes… I enjoy puzzles, board games, and tea more than going out until 2am. I ask for KitchenAid attachments for holidays and birthdays. I shop at Ann Taylor. And, I just want my apartment to look nice.
When my roommate Tori and I first moved in together, we shoved together a bunch of our old college stuff–none of it matched, and we had no money to buy anything remotely new. And that’s how it should be, right? Post-grad problems. They humble you.
Wellllll fast forward a few (3.5) years, and our apartment looks so. freaking. adult. If you haven’t seen already, we got a bar cart, redid our kitchen, then redid it again, I got a new mattress (my old one was from high school), and a whole slew of other things that I haven’t blogged about.
One thing I really wanted to do this year was to fill up this big awkward wall space in our living room. We looked at a lot of options, including prints from Minted, but in the end I wanted to frame a photo that I took. After all, I’m a photographer and rarely display my work.
I chose this photo because it’s my favorite building in my favorite city. Also, I took it with my iPhone 7+ and I think it really speaks to the capabilities of that phone that I was able to blow it up this big without compromising quality!
Of course, with a print this large, it really need some quality custom framing.
I chose Framebridge to frame it for a few reasons:
1) I had seen their frames all over the web–on different bloggers’ sites, on Instagram, via targeted ads, etc. and was really interested in trying them out for myself!
2) I listened to the below NPR Podcast about how Framebridge was created, and fell in love with their story about how they created affordable, quality custom framing.
Framebridge made it soooo easy to get my print framed. I mailed my rolled-up print to them via a pre-paid shipping label, and they emailed me to let me know they received it.
There was some damage due to shipping (not Framebridge’s fault at ALL) and their customer service team could not have been more amazing. They offered to pay for a completely new print for me (and order it wherever I previously ordered from), or re print my photo in their warehouse. I opted for them to print my photo, and they printed it and framed it within a day and had it at my doorstep within 2 days. I honestly couldn’t believe it–never have I ever experienced this kind of customer service, especially when it wasn’t even their fault!
The framed photo was delivered beautifully and I am so in love with the final product. Perhaps the best part of this is that my prized photo was custom framed for a fraction of what it would have been at another framing place (believe me, I checked). This ginormous custom framed piece costs only $200. AHHH!
To say that I’ll be ordering from Framebridge again is an understatement.
