10 Things You Could Have Learned From #AFchat Art and Framing Twitter Chat, Thursdays at 12:30 EST

Each Thursday from 12:30–1:30 PM EST, we host a Twitter chat, where we discuss topics related to art and framing. It’s a fairly new practice, but we are getting great response.

If you’re interested in connecting with us and others over our common interests, we’d love to have you join in. Simply use the easy directions in this post and follow the hashtag #AFchat.

Here is a list of 10 things you could have learned from the past couple weeks of our chat:

1. How mat board helps keep art or documents from sticking to the glass/acrylic
2. How to keep frames near doors from moving or appearing crooked
3. Tips on mailing framed art
4. How to keep art/documents from fading
5. Alternatives to basic framing
6. Discussed the difference between eclectic and formal  framing styles
7. The different meanings of “gallery framing”
8. Adjusting your artwork for different viewpoints (i.e., standing  vs. sitting
9. Methods for leveling pictures
10. Not all tape measures are created equal

If you have any ideas or questions you’d like us to cover during one of our chats, please share it with us here, or tweet your suggestion to us @americanframe #AFchat. The more the merrier and the more meaningful the dialog will be.
