Simple "framing" method?
« on: June 03, 2013, 08:17:28 AM »

I believe this was discussed here before, but I cannot find it. The top edge of the print is clamped in a metal bar that runs the width of the print. This bar is suspended from the wall or hanging system. Another bar is clamped to the bottom of the print and its weight keeps the print straight. Thanks.

I believe I've seen this a time or two at galleries but I think the prints were matted. The total effect was pleasant. I'm not sure how I'd like it if the prints were not matted.

I am thinking of a way to "quick display" prints in my home that looks neat and professional but without the hassle of framing or stretching.

And here are the dirt cheap hanger rods and bars you see down at the mall.
