An Instructional Guide written by Hunting For George
Blank walls big and small rejoice! An eclectic bunch, the Hunting for George art prints love hanging solo as much as they do in a big group. The more the merrier in fact.
To celebrate the launch of Hunting for George's most recent collection of art prints, the ‘Collector’ series, we thought we best share their tricks of the trade for perfecting the print wall. You can follow along by watching the video or check out our step-by-step guide below to mastering the perfect print wall. Watch the video here
Step One: Composition
Before hammers and nails start flying around, place your selection of prints on the floor to find a composition you like. If you’re a visual type-A personality (which we can totally relate to), mapping out the prints can help you visualise how they’ll fit into the space without committing to size and placement until you get it right. Take a photo to use as your guide.
Step Two: Curate
Avoid choosing prints that are all the same, mix it up and spread the love. A mix of sizes and orientations is key to creating a successful print wall. Avoid clumping similar types of prints together.
Step Three: Anchor
Hang the largest print first, this will act as your anchor. We recommend hanging this at eye level for a winning print wall.
Step Four: Spacing
The rule of thumb is at least an 8cm gap between each frame. Nobody is perfect and either should your gaps be, it give your print wall character.
Step Five: Frame Selection
Choose different frame finishes to give your print wall a fun eclectic look. Two or three different kinds is ideal.
Step Six: More is more
Add more prints to fill your wall. Style with odd numbers for the perfect print wall. Now sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery.
We have a style of print that will liven up even the blankest of walls, so sit back, enjoy the scenery and let your prints do the entertaining. No more fussing about with not-quite-the-right-size frames either (we've all been there). Our new ready to hang frames fit our prints perfectly helping to make life just a little bit easier... Designed to fit the entire Hunting for George art print collection, these frames are Australian made and sold pre-assembled with a multi-fit system to hang both portrait or landscape.
