Framed Plexiglass Art Print Installation

GICLEE PRINT // What's the biggest giclee print I've ever produced? This one. Apparently the printer has a size limit -- and this was it. It's 44x56" and it's all-encompassing.

FRAMING // After ordering this massive print, my client and I brainstormed as to how we were going to frame this piece. I wanted the focus to remain on the scale so I suggested this framed plexiglass treatment. It makes the print appear as if it's floating, allowing the scale and colors to shine. It doesn't compete like a traditional wood frame might.

 Yes, it took a moving truck.

INSTALLATION // Yes, it took a moving truck to haul this piece. Huge thank you to Kyle of Moving Americahttp://movingamerica.co/ Tearing back that blue protective covering for the final reveal was so exciting.

FINISHING TOUCHES // Framed plexiglass art print installation complete! I'm definitely going to use this framing method in the future for a clean, simplistic approach.
