Thinking Inside The Frame
And Outside Your Expectations
Mac is better with cheese...
Donuts are better with sprinkles...
Cake is better with frosting...
And like your favorite cake,
Frames are better with layers!
Presentation Beyond The Frame
Quality Built In To Each Layer
It might not be a surprise that we offer over 80 frame mouldings, and we understand the wide selection can be daunting. To help you in choosing which ones are your favorites, let's break things down -- not by our many frame mouldings, but by our Framed Print construction and presentation styles...
The Traditional Matted and Framed Print
Traditional Framed Photographic, Fine Art and Canvas Prints allow for an optional Single or Double Mat overlay in your choice of 13 colors, and optional Acrylic. These are likely the most well-known frame presentation due to their legacy in the true essence of the term. Each Framed Print consists of the print mounted to gatorboard, topped with mat and acrylic if selected, then finished with the frame moulding and paper backing with sawtooth or wire hanger.
Single MetalPrints are a newer alternative medium available with the same traditional Framed Print construction, but without the Mat and Acrylic (since they shine in the most durable fashion on their own). No matter your print medium, these Framed Prints are so classic they will never go out of style!
The Reveal Frame (Or Framed Print with Reveal Mat)
Reveal Frames feature Deckled Edge Fine Art Prints exclusively, in 3 different Fine Art Papers with various levels of texture. These prints are distinguished by their hand-torn edges and are offered with optional borders. The cherry on top? They float above a Reveal Mat and shine behind Acrylic, reminiscent of a shadow box frame. Reveal Mats are available in the same 13 classic mat color choices as traditional Matted and Framed Prints. The layers in this presentation are so sweet, they ooze a luxurious and elegant style.
Float Framed Prints
Float Frames break away from classic Framed Prints in their traditional sense. Rather than mounting a print behind an optional mat and acrylic within the frame, the print stands on its own, floating with a 1/4" gap between the print's edge and the frame. Float Frames are available with Single or Double MetalPrints, Canvas Wraps, Epic Prints, and Deckled Edge Fine Art Prints. This is a stunning, modern way to display all types of photography, and we go into detail on the beauty of Float Frames in this article.
Museum Classic Framed Prints
Museum Classics are in a league of their own, as their construction is more specialized. These gorgeous antique-style Frames are available with either Fine Art or Photographic Canvas (no Acrylic) in 6 sizes, and finished with gold leafing imported from Germany and Italy. They are historically accurate and individually built from scratch by master craftsmen with decades of experience. Click here for more Museum Classic inspiration.
