Minted, an online company that offers gorgeous, customized stationery, holiday cards, and wedding invitations created by indie designers, just launched a Text Us Your Photo art styling service. Basically, you text a photo of your wall to 415-993-WALL, and a Minted stylist will text you art recommendations for free. You can also send over your own photos that you want to include, so you can truly get a personalized experience. Once you’ve completed your consultation, your stylist’s art recommendations will already be loaded in your cart, and you can select what you want to buy.
Framebridge, a custom framing company, also has a new gallery wall styling service to give you a hand. When you go to the website, you can choose from six stunning gallery wall arrangements in 12 styles. Once you select the layout you want, users can upload personal photos (even from your phone), and toggle them between the virtual frames. The frames are then shipped with a life-size hanging guide to get the hanging done faster.
