About

for the love of getting one's hands dirty...

Way back when in 2007, after the birth of my first son, I was on a hunt for a new creative outlet. I missed my college art classes and felt my full time job wasn't quite creative enough. I took a screen printing lesson from the incredible Steve Walters, of the famous Screwball Press in Chicago. I printed/tinkered at Screwball for a few years and have since moved my humble operation to my basement, with the help of my very patient husband. It remains a small labor of love, sticking to its original roots and purpose: feeding my desire to make art.

Here's hoping the ride lasts long...

Additional policies and FAQs
I hope you love your Yellowlion art for a long time. Now what to do about displaying/framing...

A quick note to start...
I’ve seen some beautiful art displays using everything from simple silver push pins, wooden pants hangers, clothespins, clipboards, you name it. These methods look elegant and simple, also great to use if you’re like me and enjoy swapping your art around every now and then. Never feel like you have to frame your print in order to enjoy it!

Let‘s talk frames...

12.5'’ x 19’’ PRINTS
Standard size frame options for this print: 12’’ x 16’’, 14” x 18”, 16” x 20”, 18” x 24”

19’’ x 25’’ PRINTS
Standard size frame options for this print: 18’’ x 24’’, 24” x 30”, 26“ x 34”

19’’ x 19’’ PRINTS (SQUARE VEHICLE PRINTS)
Standard size frames for this print: Ikea has a great Ribba frame (20 1/2” x 20 1/2”) that fits this print perfectly. Other than that, any square frame will do, you have a lot of space around the image to work with!

12.5’’ x 12.5’’ PRINTS
Standard size frames for this print: 12’’ x 12’’, 12.5" x 12.5", record album frames or any larger sqaure size if you’d like more matting area.

Standard size frames are available at any local craft or art supply store. There are also some great Etsy shops that sell beautiful handmade frames at reasonable prices. Just remember, there is no “one and only” frame size, it’s all up to what size looks good to you and the wall space you’re working with.

What about matting!?
If your print is bigger than the frame you purchased, trim it on down! Grab a ruler and xacto knife and you’re ready to rock. Frames are pretty forgiving in hiding slight cutting errors so don’t be shy! If the frame you purchased is bigger than the print, you’ll want a matte board. (Usually frames come with a matte board but they don’t always fit around the image area perfectly.)

Matte board options
DIY - matte board cutters and matte boards are available at any art supply store (mine come from Dick Blick). The matte cutter takes a bit to get used to and you’ll probably mess a few up (I know I did) so practice on some scrap first. The outside measurements will be the same size as your frame and the inside window size is totally up to you. I’d suggest measuring the actual image area on the print and go from there. The right size is whatever feels easy on your eyes.
Professionally cut matte board - Even if you purchase a standard size frame you can still have a custom matte board cut at any fine framing establishment of your choosing. You give them your measurements and they give you a perfectly cut matte board. Simple as pie...

Last but not least, a word on professional framing...
Professional framing is beautiful no doubt, but can cost far more than the actual artwork itself. The perks include UV protected glass, archival matting and of course the ease of not having to do it yourself. Professional framing is always a great option and I’ve seen many a Groupon, etc. for framing discounts. Craft stores like Michaels and Joann Fabrics will periodically have 50% off framing sales as well, so if you do want to get your print professionally done up, there are some eases in cost.
