Olive et Oriel offers a white border option on most artworks, this border will surround the outside of your chosen design whilst maintaining your selected poster size. We feel it can give artworks a more sophisticated look, however this is absolutely up to your personal preference and style.
Will choosing a white border make the design/photo smaller?
YES, it will make your chosen art design/photo smaller (as shown in the below example). We don't change the size of the poster you order.
Is the white border made of cardboard?
NO, it is an unprinted area surrounding your chosen design. It is part of the poster.
What if I want all my artworks to have the same size white border?
EASY! Just make a note at checkout and our print team can accommodate this for you. This must be selected prior to completing your order.
Still confused? Here's some more detailed information...
Olive et Oriel frames and posters do not come with a matt border insert (a cardboard type additional piece that sits between the acrylic and artwork itself; also known as a passe-partout or mountboard). Instead, we offer this 'white border' option on our product to obtain a similar look, without additional costs.
Adding a white border to your chosen design will not change your selected poster size. It will simply add a white border around the outside of your chosen design, whilst maintaining the final poster size you have selected. The design/photograph will however be made smaller to accommodate the border.
Kindly note, some artworks have various styles of white borders (you will see this in their advertised imagery). If an artwork has a unique border style which you would like to be standard in width the entire way around your chosen design please leave a note at checkout.
We recommend that you do not add a white border if the frame you have at home already has a matt border insert.
