CB2 and Framebridge Team Up for Custom Framed Art Prints Collection
Susan Tynan founded Framebridge three years ago after a frustrating and costly experience trying to get a collection of beloved national park posters framed at a custom frame store. “I walked out of there thinking I didn’t want to do it again,” she tells me over the phone. “As I went on with my life and my travels, I would see things and think, ‘Oh, that would be such a good memory from this trip,’ and then, ‘Well, I can’t get it framed. .
Hundreds of thousands of custom framed pieces later, Framebridge has partnered with CB2, Crate & Barrel’s modern younger sister shop, to launch the Print Gallery online, an exclusive collection of 43 contemporary prints ranging from drawings to photographs by five hand-picked American artists, including Kate Worum, Nicole Cohen, Benjamin Grant of Daily Overview, Leslee Mitchell and Amber Vittoria. “All five artists are truly some of the favorite artists we’ve seen and worked with over the past two years,” Tynan says.
Once customers have chosen a piece, they then choose the size of the print and then select one of four frame options, including a clean white or black gallery frame, or a gold thin profile frame or pewter. Framebridge experts will then frame the piece upon request and ship it directly to their doorstep within days.
“Our job is to make art more accessible and that’s very important to us. This is our fundamental point of view. That if he speaks to you, you must be surrounded by him. It’s a way for people to personalize their spaces,” says Tynan.
Ever Frame is carefully handcrafted at Framebridge’s factories in Maryland or Kentucky using high-quality materials like premium wood moldings and acrylic glazing with UV protection. The collection is available for purchase on the CB2 website and in CB2 stores nationwide from July. Prices range from $149 to $349.
