Framing Options / How to Frame Your Artwork!
It is my goal to make owning original artwork as easy and affordable as possible for you. That is why I now offer several framing options. I will help you frame your artwork no matter your budget or aesthetic goals. If at any time you have questions, inquiries, or concerns about framing, do not hesitate to contact me.
This is the standard frame I offer, and it is my personal favorite. These frames are neutral, contemporary, and fit in with most decor, modern and traditional. These are high quality frames that I purchase in bulk, so I am able to include them in the price of the artwork.
I also just started to offer a $20, 5''x7'' frame for my matted and ready to frame pieces. Purchase yours here.
New: Custom Frames
If maple isn't your cup of tea, I am excited to announce that I now offer other framing options! These are special order frames, so please allow 2-3 weeks before shipping time. If you need it sooner, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
You will see options for a Black, White, and Silver frame on each one of my listings. If there is something specific you are looking for, let me know and I can see if it can be done.
Have your own framer?
That's fine, and the best way to do it sometimes! I include the maple frame with my larger pieces, so the price will not change between an unframed piece and a framed piece. Purchase the work with the maple frame, and send me an email letting me know that you would like it shipped without a frame.
Matted and Ready to Frame Artwork / How to Find a Frame that Fits
If you purchased an artwork that is listed as "Matted and Ready to Frame", this means it comes in a standard size mat with backing. It should be ready to fit in a standard size frame. For my personal collection, I often look for frames in thrift shops or antique stores. I have also found affordable frames in department stores and even the dollar store! I now offer a $20, 5''x7'' frame for sale in my shop (check it out, here).
You can also order a custom frame from American Frame for around $20. Most, if not all of their moldings will fit my work, and they have a wide variety to choose from.
What to look for in a frame: The deeper the frame, the better. I suggest purchasing a frame with a detachable back, that is .25inch deep or deeper. I currently use mat board for the backing of my 5''x7'' artworks, so the artwork should fit in most frames. If your frame is too shallow for the artwork and mats, you may have to modify the frame. This is okay, it just takes a tiny bit of work!
What to do if your artwork is too thick for your frame:
Contact me and I will send you a bracket to attach to the back of the frame.
If you bought a 5''x7'' artwork before February 2018, I used foam core backing for these, which made the artwork too thick for certain 5x7'' frames. Please contact me, and I will send you a bracket that you can attach to any frame to make the artwork fit! I will ship this part to you for free!
