Frame Colors and Material

Our frames come in three industry-standard colors to provide options that function best for the art and look best on your wall.

Black:

Poplar wood with a gesso coating. Smooth finish with no texture present. Frame face width is 3/4” wide and frame depth is 1 1/2.”

White:

Poplar wood with a gesso coating. Smooth finish with no texture present. Frame face width is 3/4” wide and frame depth is 1 1/2.”

Natural:

Poplar wood with a thin maple veneer. Shows wood grain texture. Frame face width is 3/4” wide and frame depth is 1 1/2.”

Mounting and Design

All of our prints are backed with archival, acid-free matte board. We use two different styles based on whether or not the print is borderless.

Borderless

Prints that do not possess a border are dry mounted to an archival, acid-free white matte board. Dry mounting is 100% reversible and poses no damage to the artwork over time. It also prevents the artwork from slipping in its frame. We leave a 3/4” space between the art and the frame on every side to allow all aspects of the artwork to be visible and the edges of the paper to be showing. This space totaled with the frame face width adds an additional 3″ to both the HxW of the paper size.

Border

Prints with a border are framed to the edge of the paper, therefore the matte board is not visible. The total of the face frame widths adds an additional 1 1/2″ to both the HxW of the paper size.

Glazing

We use lightweight UV-blocking Plexiglas rather than traditional glass. This protects the artwork from light exposure and from glass-shattering damage. Our frames contain an internal spacer that keeps the Plexiglass raised off the art, ensuring that nothing ever touches the surface of the print.

Hardware

Frames are backed with sealed paper to protect from dust exposure. Each frame arrives ready to hang with a wire and D-Rings attached.
