Please read through the FAQ below to answer more of your questions about The Organic Bloom frame line and what makes this frame line so special.
DO I NEED TO COMPLETE A SESSION WITH YOUR STUDIO IN ORDER TO PURCHASE AN ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME?
You are not required to complete a session with my studio if you would like to purchase an Organic Bloom frame. Simply contact me to schedule an Organic Bloom frame design appointment.
WHY DO I NEED A FRAME DESIGN APPOINTMENT WHEN ORDERING AN ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME?
I'm always thrilled when a client decides to invest in a new Organic Bloom frame! I want to make sure that all of your questions about your new frame are answered, and that you take advantage of all of the perks that come with ordering such a beautiful, timeless frame.
Your Organic Bloom frame design appointment will take place right in the comfort of my home studio. We will discuss which style and color you would like for your new frame, then I'll use my specialized computer software to create your Organic Bloom frame right before your eyes. But the fun doesn't stop there! If you're adding a portrait print from a recent session with my studio, then I'll add the portrait that you've selected to your frame. Are you curious what your new Organic Bloom frame will look like on your wall? Supply me with a picture of the space where you'd like to hang your new frame, and I'll add your new custom designed Organic Bloom frame to your picture. This way you will know exactly how your new Organic Bloom frame will look on your wall before you even order it!
HOW MANY STYLES AND COLORS DOES THE ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME LINE COME IN?
The Organic Bloom frames are offered in 16 beautiful styles and over 50 color options. You can view examples of all The Organic Bloom frame styles and colors HERE.
DO THE METALLIC PAINTS HAVE A DIFFERENT FINISH THAN THE NON-METALLIC PAINTS?
Yes. The metallic paints are composed of a different chemical composition than the non-metallic paints. Because of this, the finish of the metallic colored frames may have a rougher texture, metallic flakes, or subtle streaking or star-burst effects.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SINGLE, DOUBLE, AND MULTI-OPENING ORGANIC BLOOM FRAMES?
The single Organic Bloom frame has no backing like the twin and double frames. The double Organic Bloom frame is a layered frame with a square back. The twin Organic Bloom frame is also a layered frame, but with a matching back. The multi-opening Organic Bloom frame allows for more than one portrait to be displayed in a frame.
Below are photos showing the difference between the different frames:
**Please note that the image associated with the multi-open frame is just one example of many options the Organic Bloom frame line has to offer.**
CAN I ORDER AN ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME WITHOUT THE DISTRESSED EDGES?
Yes, you can now order any of the Organic Bloom frames with or without distressed edges. Because the Organic Bloom frames come standard with distressed edges there is an additional fee if you would prefer no distressed edges per frame.
WHAT GLAZE ACCENT COLORS ARE AVAILABLE?
Currently, the Organic Bloom offers a black or brown glaze at an additional cost per frame. The application of a black or brown glaze will change the overall color of the frame slightly. All of the frames come standard with distressing which leaves exposed wood around the edges. The black and brown glazes will stain the exposed wood the color of the glaze applied.
Below are photos showing the difference between non-glazed and black and brown glazed frames. The non-glazed frames are featured on the top of the stack, with the brown glaze in the middle and the black glaze on the bottom:
DO THE ORGANIC BLOOM FRAMES COME WITH GLASS?
No, glass is not currently offered by the Organic Bloom for shipping reasons. Instead, the Organic Bloom offers non-glare acrylic (1/8" plexi-glass) sheet inserts for their frames. These acrylic inserts are not required for your frame but are recommended if you would like added protection for your portrait print. Acrylic inserts are available at an additional fee and can be ordered with your frame.
SHOULD I ORDER MY ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME PORTRAIT PRINT MOUNTED?
Most of my clients choose to add a mount to their framed portrait prints. I recommend adding a 1/4" Foamboard mount to portrait prints that are 8x10 or larger.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I RECEIVE MY ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME?
Every Organic Bloom frame comes fully assembled with a backing piece that is secured by flexible tabs and rubber bumpers on all corners. The flexible tabs can easily be lifted to remove the backing so you may slide your portrait print in place, then just bend the tabs back down for a secure fit. Hanging hardware is attached to your new frame as well. Single frames 12x12 and smaller will have keyholes, and frames that are larger than 12x12 will have alligator hooks. All Double/Twin frames have a pre-cut lip on the back of the frame and include monkey hooks. Simply insert your monkey hook into your drywall and hang the frame utilizing the pre-cut lip.
WHAT ARE THE OUTER DIMENSIONS OF THE ORGANIC BLOOM FRAMES?
The overall frame size does vary from style to style. Frames similar to Lucy and Lewis are some of the thinner frames, and June or Mary Ann are some of the thicker frames that The Organic Bloom offers. Please see The Organic Bloom Outer Dimensions Guide HERE to view all single frame and multi-opening frame outer dimensions.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY ORGANIC BLOOM FRAME ONCE I ORDER IT?
These frames are custom built when ordered, so please allow approximately 2 to 3 weeks until your frame order is fulfilled.
WHAT DO THE ORGANIC BLOOM FRAMES COST?
All Organic Bloom Frames and upgrade option prices are available in your online gallery shopping cart feature. If you are not a current client with my studio and you would like more information about our Organic Bloom frames and prices, I ask that you please contact me.
