We are pleased to begin offering several standard size frames in a selection of contemporary finishes, suitable for many types of display environments.
Sizes offered are 5x7, 8x10, and 11x14.
Finishes available are: white, black, mahogany, natural, and dark brown. Not all finishes available in all sizes.
These come standard with wall mounting hardware (both horizontal and vertical) pre-installed. A backing/mounting foam board is included.
We start with solid wood frames. These are not particle board, MDF, or plastic resin, but genuine, solid wood frames. Some are lighter, software woods, while others use heavier, harder wood. The price differences you see reflect the cost of the frame material.
We install 99% UV blocking Tru Vue Conservation Clear glass in each one. We believe that any art or photograph you frame is worth preserving, and this glass will help reduce the damage that any kind of light will do to the piece behind it.
Behind the glass we include acid-free foam board that can go behind the item being framed. This too, will help reduce any low-pH damage from the back. The backing is held in place by flexible points that can be bent to install and remove.
We went ahead and pre-installed sawtooth hangers on both the vertical and horizontal orientations to save you time. And we included a set of felt pads that you can install on the bottom corners. Finally, a wall hook is also included.
The basic set of supplied frame and hardware is enough to frame and hang a standard sized piece on a wall.
If you want to display on a tabletop or a shelf, an easel back is available as an optional purchase to fit into the back.
We also have pre-cut window mats available to fit the three standard frame sizes. These are all conservation grade, acid free, 4-ply mat boards. Here are the ones currently available:
Now why don’t we just include these as standard features in all the frames? The blunt answer is, we can’t afford to do so. We believe that we are offering frames and options at a fair price while using material that is a step up from most less-costly mass-produced frames.
We are offering these pre-assembled frames and options at prices below a full custom framing sale price. So what is included in a full custom framing service that isn’t included in these frames?
If you want or need any of these, we are happy to discuss your custom framing vision and needs.
