Seriously, my framers are as obsessive about the framing as I am about art. They’ve invested so much time and care selecting top-notch molding and materials and perfecting all of the details of the framing, so all you have to worry about is where to hang the piece. We are so pleased to offer hand-crafted crafted, custom framing made here in the USA. We use premium wood moldings, uv-protective acrylic and acid-free mat and foam core. Frame choices include Gallery White, Gallery Black, Gallery Natural, or Signature Gold, or Lucite Shadow Box. The best part? We will handle the entire process for you. Framed prints ship in 3-4 weeks. Lucite Shadow boxes in 4-5 weeks.
FOR PIECES UP TO 30"x40" | With its block profile and its smooth, unembellished design, the Gallery is our most popular frame. The version is in a clean, bright matte white. We love how the white makes the vivid colored pieces in our shop really pop, which is why we use it so much. And the contemporary streamlined design doesn’t compete with the art and lets it easily integrate into any type of décor style. Available in matte white and black finishes. 100% wood. 3/4" Face, 1-1/4" Deep.
FOR PIECES 30"x40" AND LARGER | Our Gallery Deep frame has a slightly larger, chunkier block profile than our Gallery frame, but features the same smooth, matte black finish. A frame like this one, with a larger profile, we find ideal for the larger works of art that we sell in our shop, for that added depth perception and a more artistic display. The matte color is great if you are looking to slightly ground our more colorful pieces. Available in matte white and black finishes. 100% wood. 1" Face, 2-1/4" Deep.
FOR PIECES UP TO 30"x40" | Elegant but subtle, this frame features a narrow edging, with a clean, sloped profile leading into a beautiful linear detailing. With a matte finish of layered tones of antique gold, this beautiful frame adds a touch of iconic elegance and works really well when grouping art, or using as part of an art gallery wall. 1” Face, 7/8” Deep.
SIGNATURE GOLD WIDE
FOR PIECES 30"x40" AND LARGER | This frame is inspired by the iconic Hudson River School of class American painters. The extra wide edging with a raised bevel gives it an understated luxury, while its lightly distressed appearance gives it an old world charm, especially in this beautiful vintage gold finish. It offers a interesting contrast when framing our contemporary pieces, giving it an entirely new impression, and the gold really makes the colors come alive in a completely different way. Also available in Vintage Silver. Frame intentionally has an imperfect finish featuring slight dings and markings. 100% wood. 1 ¾” Face, 1 3/8” Deep.
WOOD CANVAS FLOAT
This narrow profile is the perfect complement to your canvas without detracting from its beauty. Each canvas is hand-stretched and attached inside the frame so that it appears to "float" with 1/4" of space between the edge of your canvas and the inside of the frame. 1/4" Face, 1" Deep on the sides. Canvas will be stretched around 3/4" deep wood stretchers. Available in White, Black and Luxe Silver.

ANY TIPS OR SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO HANG? sure thing!
IF YOUR ART HAS A SAWTOOTH HANGER
1. Hold frame to wall at desired position.
2. Leave finger or light pencil mark at the sawtooth hanger location.
3. Apply drywall screw w/ a Phillips-Head screwdriver at the location of the pencil mark.
4. Leave the screw sticking out 1/8" to 1/4" from wall.
5. Hang the sawtooth hanger on the screw and check with a level.
IF YOUR ART HAS TWO D-RINGS
1. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADD A WIRE. The two D-rings are meant to hang on two separate hooks.
2. If your piece is large and awkward to handle yourself, have a friend help.
3. Rub pencil on the corner of the D-rings and make sure the D-rings are flipped up. That's how they'll eventually hang on the picture hangers.
4. Hold frame straight using a level.
5. Gently place frame against the wall in desired position. This will transfer small pencil marks for the picture hangers onto the wall.
6. Position your picture hangers so the hooks align with the pencil marks on the wall.
7. Hammer the nails through your two picture hangers.
8. Hang the D-rings on the picture hangers. Check with a level.
IF YOUR ART HAS A HANGING WIRE
1. Hold frame to wall at desired position and lightly mark on the wall where the center top of the frame is with pencil or removable painter’s tape.
2. On the back of the frame, find the center of the hanging wire and use your finger or the end of a tape measure to pull the hanging wire toward the top of the frame so all slack is taken out of the wire.
3. Measure the distance from where you are holding the wire taut to the top of the frame.
4. From your mark designating the center top of the frame on the wall, measure down the distance from Step 3 and mark an x there in light pencil. This is where you will hammer your hardware into the wall.
5. Position your hook and nail on the wall and hammer the nail through the hook.
6. Erase the pencil marks or remove the tape on the wall.
7. Use your hands to help guide the wire securely onto the hanger. If your piece is too large and too awkward to handle yourself, have a friend hold the frame while you guide the wire onto the wall hanger.
8. Once you’ve got the wire onto the wall hanger, check it with a level.
WHY IS THIS FRAME STYLE SO POPULAR?
Our Lucite shadow box simply said is a stunner and an incredibly popular choice. We happen to be located by some of the best acrylic framers in the business and we work with them to create these gorgeous framed pieces. This frame is a a piece of art in itself and great for any contemporary space or as an eclectic contrast to a more traditional style. It is custom made to fit your artwork as the piece is floated over white linen for a truly art gallery-style display. We absolutely love the glossy look it brings to our pieces. 3” Deep.
HOW LONG DOES THE ACRYLIC FRAMING TAKE?
These shadow boxes take a bit longer than traditional framing and ship in about 5-6 weeks. A lot of love and care goes into these but boy are they are worth the wait!
HOW THE HECK DO I HANG it?
Each acrylic frame comes with a "french cleat"...it's attached to the back to show how it fits, just remove the tape and that's the "cleat" you use to hang the piece on the wall. We recommend using long screws and anchors to hang the cleat. Make sure its level, hold the cleat against the wall with the high side facing OUT (so the frame can "hang" over it) and mark the three holes. Then insert the anchors and then screw the cleat into the wall. And Viola! The frame will fit right on top like a puzzle piece, secure and flush with the wall. And if you are more visual like me, there's also a lot of great videos on YouTube if you google french cleat.
HOW DO I CARE FOR IT?
- We recommend using Sparkle Glass Cleaner - Do not use anything with ammonia as it will scratch acrylic
- Use a very soft, like a cloth diaper, to clean with
- If scratches occur, we recommend using NOVUS, this is a great product for acrylic
SOME GLITTER FELL AND IS SITTING AT THE BOTTOM, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Given the nature of my 3D works and the materials I use, this will happen from time to time, especially in transit. The good news is, this is easy to resolve. Each of my custom lucite frames are made to allow for easy access to the works. Simply unscrew each of the screws along the sides of the frame and carefully lift up the cover. See care instructions above to clean and/or gently wipe away any excess glitter, etc. Then return the cover aligning with the screw holes and, screw each one back in place.
WHY ISN'T SHIPPING FREE?
This frames are stunning, but they are works of art in themselves. They are fairly heavy and require extra care in shipping. For smaller size pieces, we use a special packaging foam that surrounds and encases the frame itself. For larger size pieces, we construct a custom wood crate for shipping. This all in turn effects the shipping costs.
