Is it too much to ask for something worth the silver frame? Something more special than the ho-hum five-by-seven? Getting the white-border option on our pics was a start. (It’s very art-director.)
But here’s something that goes a step beyond. Sea Hour Photo has the coolest printing style called the Sloppy Border. They let the negative peek out around your image, giving every photo a unique black border inside a crisp white edge. Oh, and they sepia-tone too, for that added nostalgic touch.
