DIY color laser printer
If you or a friend has a color laser printer, go for it! Be sure to plan ahead for the size of your frames and crop the edges of the images to your preferences. Don’t be shy about playing around with color enhancement either.
Photo Printing services
Anyplace you use to print photos will be able to print these as well. Just log into your favorite service or head to your local store for help editing if needed. As above, make sure the prints are cropped and colored to your liking, and will fit well in your chosen frames.
opportunity shop frames
Framing doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Just take a trip to your local thrift shop (I prefer the term op shop, “op” for opportunity) and discover an assortment of frames from 25 cents to a couple of dollars. Gallery walls look particularly sharp with coordinated vintage op shop frames.
