Wild Child Our children notice things. They notice that what we treasure most, we hang for all to see. Through out our homes we hang the faithful Family Portrait over the mantel. We tediously mull over where to hang our favorite Oil Painting. These things are important. So why do we hang Dr. Seuss, Twilight posters or framed craft pieces in our children’s rooms? Why not let them know how “treasured” they are to us? This is not implied with small, simple easel back frames!!! This is conveyed through big, beautiful images that sing with their laughter on that sweet day they had their images made. Let Wild Sorbet help design the perfect grouping for your child’s room!

Studio Spotlight Shelley DeJager has a beautiful In-home Studio in San Jose, California.
“Wishing to encourage clients toward larger wall portraits and collections, I transformed my living room into a studio. Wild Sorbet frames add beautiful color and personality to the room while maintaining the traditional style of my home. I love the final result! Filled with portraits of family and close friends, it’s still livable space but now doubles as the perfect place for consultations and proofing. Clients see my 20x30’s, and it helps them to invision this size in their own living space.” Shelley DeJager

Our New trims……….Victorian, Roman and Cameo are beautiful, vintage trims. These trims are made from reclaimed wood, and crushed pecan and almond shells. Because of their detail, we are able to offer elegant glazes and overlays in these trim styles. These make unique trimlings and when added as trim to a frame, truly bring out a “Twist on Traditional.” These can be added to any frame at a nominal up-charge.

Wild Sorbet Color Collections
Color is our business. We began with 24 basic colors and have now grown to 152. Not to mention our patterns and textures. We love color and are not afraid to use it. But whether you are a person who loves neutrals or one who looks straight into the rainbow for more options, we have the perfect choice for you. Just look.
have our frames on your walls…..your clients will understand the style and all you need is a color sample. No need for corners in every color and lots of lost studio space! Just get a 10” flower pot or galvanized bucket, throw a ribbon around it and “ta-da” you’ve got a display. Questions…..just ask!
Our Washed Metallics and Delicious Darks are perfect for the most formal rooms. Coupled with Bungalow trim, these colors create a beautifully elegant frame. Then there’s our yummy pastels for those precious newborns and bountiful brights to cater to toddlers as they explore their personalities through color.
For 2 years now some of the industry’s top photographers have had color collections with us. These “Designer Colors” are unique colors that speak volumes of their style and personality. SPA (Senior Portrait Artists), Vicki Taufer, Beverly Walden and Sarah Petty have all had tremendous influence in the colors and designs we offer and we are so grateful. They are the best in their industry for a reason!!!
Our corner samples are sold in collections to make it easy for you. We also offer trim packets. These are our trims, cut into 8” sticks, and painted in each of our colors. We highly recommend beginning with the trim packets. They are convenient color samples and once you

A service for ALL photographers. Designed to help increase sales, this unique service gives affordable, quick access to talented designers every day! After 6 years of talking with photographers day after day, we realized we were hearing the same concerns. Visualization for your clients is a MUST. Design Cottage makes this oh, so simple !
3 Easy steps to Giving your Client EXACTLY what they want! 1. Before your session try using our “Design Consultation” at your pre-consultation. This is available to all our customers and is on our website under the “Tools” tab. This will help assist you in giving your client exactly what they are expecting. Encouraging your clients to have beautiful wall collections of your art in their home.
2. After your “perfect” session, simply e-mail us up to 15 images and all the great info you learned about your client’s home from the Design Consultation. You can also e-mail us that photo of your client’s space in their home (you know, the one they sent you because you asked!) When you know WHERE your client is looking to place these images in their home it makes it much easier for them to visualize a grouping in that space.
3. Using the software, Pree Vu, we will place your images in frames and arrange them proportionally on your client’s wall or simply use one of our default walls. We give up to 2 different wall collection designs and e-mail them back to you within 72 hours (business days). These files can be projected to show your client, uploaded to facebook or put on your blog! The charge is minimal and VERY worth it. Start selling wall collections and groupings with every client! We want to do your homework for you!

Wild Sorbet began in a 2-car garage in Florence, Alabama by an occupational health nurse wanting “something different” for her nursery. After creating the frame she had envisioned, she set out to introduce a unique product to a very targeted market. Deciding to sell only to Professional Photographers and Interior Designers, Wild Sorbet began with high expectations.
Wild Sorbet started with 24 basic colors. Within 1 year they were up to 36. Then, with the addition of their Designer Colors by such well-known photographers in the industry as Vicki Taufer, Beverly Walden and Sarah Petty, they were soon up to 152! They have now added new styles and designs and are constantly challenging themselves to WOW their customers with their creativity.
Wild Sorbet is determined to change the expectations of a frame company. The company offers design consultations every day for photographers’ images and their studio displays. Customer Service at Wild Sorbet has set this company apart.
These custom, hand-crafted frames are never mass produced. Each frame is a true original. The wide array of colors enables the client to create a style that will perfectly compliment any interior space. Wild Sorbet takes pride in the uniqueness of their frames and encourages their clients to “Go Wild”.
