We find there are a few advantages to the thin borders. First and foremost, it gives you something to grab when handling the print so you aren't risking damaging the inks. This sets it apart from full bleed prints. Want to have the effect of a larger white border? Have the first matt be thin and white. A good framer can still easily matt it the same as any other print. However, unlike prints with a larger border you also have the option of framing it so the frame goes to the edge of the art which mimics paintings making it as if you've framed the original art opposed to a print (Insert joke about the original art being larger). This is how Audrey Kawasaki's artist framed prints appear and is the first artist we starting using this style of border with. For art in my own home I enjoy having the option of matting it OR framing it right up to the art so I'm personally a fan of the thin border. :)
Thanks for the info!

Yeah, Esao's previous releases have the thin borders as well and I'm actually a big fan - enough for handling, as much image as possible while not being full bleed.

Something to consider if the white borders were thicker; that means the artist will probably sign on the white making it so people who would want to frame out the border to be forced into covering up the sig. Thin borders like this and Kawasaki mean the artist signs on the image thus leaving it up to the owner how to frame and matte

Keep doing your thing SM, no complaint over here

Love the thin borders. Wish everyone did theirs like that.

That blog post on his site is from 2013. His Facebook says 1pm PST also so I'm sure that's the time

The question is, do I go for cloisters or just buy them both. This is the perfect time for having extra money to buy prints.....not lol

Glad to hear people like them!

While we're on the subject, what would you all think if Esao offered an 'Artist Framed' upgrade for future print releases? It would work in a similar fashion to Audrey Kawasaki's sales if you're familiar with that format. The artist would pick out a frame that compliments the piece and either during or after checkout you can choose whether you'd like to upgrade to the frame option.

The frame would likely be in the style I mentioned earlier; with the edge of the frame against the art and the sig inside so it looks like the original painting.

The decision to do anything like this is up to Esao, but I'd be curious to see if that's something many people would be interested in.

You would simply have the option of getting it framed. You certainly wouldn't have to.
