Let’s not pretend: We will always have and love picture frames. But that doesn’t mean they are always the best option. Photo boards are a nice alternative, offering a decorative look, exceptional ease in changing photos, and the freedom to artfully arrange. Not only handy pieces of home decor, they can serve a purpose for artists and crafters as well: because of the easy maneuverability these boards provide, collage artists can plan out pieces on them, painters and textile artists can compare how swatches of color look together, and multimedia artists can even use them to create finished pieces in the vein of John Hampson’s insect mosaics. If a photo board sounds like a handy tool for your projects, peruse our list of favorites below.
