We’ve compiled 5 do’s and don’ts for your fall family photoshoot.


  1. Coordinating colors
  2. Layer up with colors and patterns that pop*
  3. Textures like wool, knits, and corduroy add warmth to photos
  4. Mix it up with plaids and solids
  5. Utilize accessories: sweaters, belts, jewelry, socks, and hats

*beware of tiny prints, they may cause moire, or a distorted look in photos


  1. Matchy-matchy: remember the all denim in the 80’s?
  2. Big brand logos
  3. Neon colors—they create a color cast and do not print well
  4. Large patterns and distracting accessories
  5. Hats that shade or hide your eyes

Why it’s unique

  • No Glare. Mounted photos can be framed without glass.
  • Any size up to 30″x40″ can be printed and mounted to fit odd sized frames.
  • They’re lightweight. Hang with double sided velcro or heavy 3m tape or display in an easel.
  • Protective texture laminate is heat pressed onto the board – fireplace heat or humidity won’t cause peeling.
  • Mounting is an affordable, unique, & easy way to show off photos at a wedding or special event.
