Every art is unique in its own way, and it should be displayed in a manner that represents the emotion or message that it is meant for. Given below are few unique ways in which you can frame your pictures and bring wow factor to your pictures.

1) Engraved Picture Frames
This is the most basic but the most loved frame. Engraved frames are a great way to frame your art. These frames can even make a mediocre looking art wonderful. Three most popular engraved frames are silver plated, solid pewter, and sterling frames.
It is essential to have a flat surface for engraving and metal to be engraved should be thick enough so that engraving is not shown with double type of material. A good rule of thumb for engraving your picture frame is that you should only engrave a high quality material frame which can sustain for years to come. Generally, a picture that is a family heirloom is used for engraved frames, as time and cost for engraved frame are quite high.
