A print with passepartout and elegant frame is something very special. Not only is the photo mounted to a wall, but gets a wow effect. What is a passepartout? A passepartout is made of cardboard fitted in a frame with glass front. Standardly we use a width of four cm (orderable online), other sizes are possible as well of course - ask us here for more information.
If you use a passepartout, you create "distance" between the subject and the frame, meaning the picture doesn't fill the whole frame but only an extract of it. This brings both optical clearness and a practical advantage: the print and the glass in front of it don't "touch" eacht other which is great for conservational reasons.
In other words: a passepartout leads the eyes on the middle, the subject and creates "silence" around the photo, the beholder is not distracted. Furthermore, the passepartout is cut skewed to the inside, which gives the picture depth. Thanks to modern cutting options, the mitre (the cut corner of the passepartout) is perfectly manufactuarble and an optical delectation.
You can choose out of a big number of frame colours. Just ask us for your favourite version, we will deliver. Moreover, you can choose out of different passepartout variations e.g. black, natural whtie or bright white. Other colours on demand. This is also true for the frame size: On the one hand we can offer you the sizes you can see on this page, but if you need another format, feel free to contact us at anytime. Of course other formats - square for example - are possible. Contact us.
For the print of this elegant item we do not use any paper, but Sihl Masterclass Baryta paper with a weight of 290g/sqm. On the one hand, this paper delivers strong and brilliant colours. On the other hand, it is exactly this combination of paper plus frame which makes this item a special one.
If you choose passepartout, you have got the choice between several sizes. These sizes are shown in the drop down menu. Let's say you want a 50 x 70 cm size, you simply substract 4 cm all round (margin). This means that the visible part of your picture is 42 x 62 cm. To process your print, we need 0,5 cm all round to fix it to the passepartout. So, the file comes with 43 x 63 cm, you can see 42 x 62 of it (plus passepartout of 4 cm on every side and we are at aour 50 x 70 cm size). So, if your choice is passepartout, please calculate a margin of 0,5 cm which you won't see of your photo. This item comes with a black, glossy frame mit natural white passepartout. You want another variation? Feel free to contact us at anytime.
