Going frameless is a great way to easily and affordably display photographs, works on paper or even as a way to hang your very own polaroid collection. With so many inventive ways to clip, pin, and string artworks, there’s an approach that works for every décor. This low commitment style for showing your artworks also means you can easily reorder and update items whenever the mood strikes!
