Myriad Fine Art is a custom art framing site running on Magento.  It’s been modified to deal with custom sized products (ie several ‘default sizes’ for artwork, plus the ability to custom-size a piece of art to almost any dimensions you want.  You can also custom frame art, choosing from many frames and mats.  It would have been great to have Magento bundles to build this site, but since we couldn’t wait that long, we modified Magento ourselves to bundle framed products.

Hi Emily,

your site looks really stunning, especially because of the great artwork you’re selling smile

Especially the “custom size and frame” module ist something I haven’t seen before in a Magento store.
May I asked how that is achieved technically on the backend? Are you creating a new product on-the-fly in the system to put
the custom sized picture in the cart? That is something I am interested in, because I plan a similar customizing of
products.

I really hope you can find some time to answer my questions smile

Good luck with your store!

Awesome website - excellent work.  Very nifty feature that custom size and frame utility you created. It makes it super easy to customize the art framing!

Except for the custom frame part (very good by the way), the site locks and structure is very close to default.

Wow!
Wish I knew how to do that. haha

How did you get the dropdown menus for the different sizes? I REALLY need to know how to do that.
Hope you can share some of your secrets. heheh

Again, great job on the site! Looks fantastic!

Wow, really nice work.  By far one of the best I’ve seen yet.  Very clean and simple design.

However, it’s really slow, as with most magento sites :(

Hi Emily,

First of all..great site and great framing add-on feature. The best I have seen.
Q: Is it possible to get the code for the framing features. We are building several art sites and would like to have that on our sites.
Would be glad to hire for this.
Thanks, Roger

Clean and effective - I’m quite a fan. The excellent pictures always give a big boost too! The custom framing functionality is a nice addition too, though it’s a bit of a shame its Flash smile

Oh, just letting you know that the ‘go’ button next to the search field in the header is actually wrapping. This is in Firefox 3 on a Mac, I’ve attached a screenshot just to show what I mean.

Apart from that, excellent work - keep it up!
