Picture Framing for Pet Portraits

Regardless of whether you are a cat person or a dog person, a turtle, horse or bird person, or maybe you don’t have just one favourite, our pets and companion animals are a part of the family.

This is often evidenced by how often our picture framers get to work with pet portraits. It is not uncommon for people to commission a dog portrait, cat portrait, horse portrait of their special animal friend. These are commonly pastels, watercolours, original paintings (oil painting and acrylic paintings) or snapshot and professional photographs. The Frames NOW team takes great pride in being allowed to care for such a personal and special mementos, and we just love custom framing these artworks.

Picture frames are often used as memorial frames as well. While it can be hard to say goodbye to a loved one, we love to be reminded of them, and the happiness they brought us. Dog collars and cat collars, often with their tags, are common choices for object framing in a shadow box frame. Dress the frame with one or more photos of your pet doing what they loved, and you have a beautifully framed sentimental piece to smile upon. With our acid free materials and emphasis on preservation framing, Frames NOW’s picture framers will ensure your precious memories are preserved in their picture frames, whether it be a custom picture frame or a ready made picture frame.

For such warm and happy memories, warm colour schemes often work best. A golden or creamy coloured matboard brings out the colour of a golden retriever’s fur, where tan or ginger coloured mats often suit a ginger cat, or chestnut horse. We have hundreds of colours of acid free mats and borders to choose from, and our friendly picture framers are on hand to show you how to easily select the right colours to compliment your favourite companions.
