Seattle, WA, Jan. 30, 2008. If a picture tells a thousand words, then Story Frames from Imagekind speak volumes. Imagekind, the world´s fastest-growing online community for creating, buying and selling custom framed artwork and photography, today announced the release of their new Story Frames collection, a group of customized framing products that allows anyone to transform a series of digital images into a story worth telling.
Story Frames from Imagekind are the world´s first "build it yourself" framing option that allows everyone from the casual photographer to established artists to create personal narratives from digital files - including photography, art and children´s drawings.
In just five easy clicks, visitors upload multiple images, which can be enhanced online, and then choose from an array of museum-grade mat, frame and finishing options for a personal masterpiece that will be delivered within days. With Story Frames, images are laid out horizontally or vertically, so that each framed work of art tells a "story" loved-ones will cherish forever.
Perfect for capturing all kinds of memories - from family adventures to romantic vacations and special holidays - Story Frames are one-of-a-kind gifts to surprise and delight a coach, teacher, grandparent or best friend.
Easy, attractive and affordable decorating solutions are a trait of the Story Frames collection, which offers unlimited framing flexibility to suit any taste. Choose from a variety of mat and frame styles to match any design or color scheme. Pricing begins at $45 and includes photo enhancement, custom matting, framing, and finishing with the most trusted museum-quality techniques.
In addition to the Story Frames collection, Imagekind offers a variety of custom art products that include the signature Canvas Gallery Wrap and Canvas Museum Wrap. These techniques allow any digital file to be printed and stretched on canvas using state-of-the-art processing methods for a sophisticated and timeless effect.
Those who don't have their own images to frame can search special interests such as 'botanicals' or 'architecture' and discover a gallery that rivals any world class museum. Imagekind lets customers browse and purchase photography and paintings, as well as modern and folk art, from more than 20,000 global artists. For more classical tastes, select from the Masters Collection featuring Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Warhol and others.
Other special features in the Imagekind gallery include: Cityscapes, a collection of breathtaking views of the world´s most romantic cities; the Portraits and Famous Faces gallery that celebrates iconic works from every era by renowned photographers and artists. And if architecture or nature inspire, enjoy a browse through Imagekind's endless Interiors and Exteriors and Nature galleries.
