How to choose the best picture frame size?2019-12-31T06:58:34-08:00

Always make sure to measure your image first. All of our frame sizes are based on the inside dimensions. Therefore if you have an 8×10 image and do not want to use a mat, you will want an 8×10 frame. If you have an 11×14 image and do want to include a mat, it is important to choose a larger frame size to accommodate this.

What is a Ready-made picture frame and what are standard sizes?2019-12-31T06:58:05-08:00

A readymade frame is pre manufactured and comes in a variety of standard sizes. We offer a FREE quick fit service on all readymade frames. Meaning we can put your artwork in the frame while you wait. This includes glass cleaning, dust cover, wall bumpers, and hanging hardware.
In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized sizes overall. These sizes cover a wide range of photograph sizes, poster sizes, art print sizes, and many other common sizes we see every day.

5×7 is a very popular frame size because so many photographs are printed off in the 5×7 size. 5×7’s are the perfect size to display your photos on a desktop at work, home, or to give a precious memory to someone close to you.

8×10 is a common picture size but it is also a perfect frame because it allows you to mat your smaller photographs. You can mat a 5×7, 4×6, or even two landscape 3×5 photo’s to help highlight your memories.

11×14 Many of our customers love this size because they again can use a mat on smaller pieces, or just highlight their 11×14 photographs.

16×20 If you are looking for a medium sized picture frame, the 16×20 size is a great choice. You can easily mat an 11×14 image. This option provides just over 2” of matting on each side of your image. This is a great size picture frame because you can make it a highlight piece on your wall, or part of a mixture with other frames to form a collage on your wall.

24×36 Our largest popular size picture frame size. 24×36 is the main size that most posters that are sold come in. Therefore if you are looking to frame a poster for a dorm room, your office or house, or to give as a gift, this is the perfect picture frame size for you.

How do I know what hardware I need for my frame?2019-12-31T06:57:15-08:00

You don’t need to worry. Our Framing Experts install hanging hardware on the back of each custom frame and quick fit. We take the size and weight of your piece into account and install the appropriate hardware.

Are there various price options available?2019-12-31T06:56:50-08:00

Of course! With a selection of over 800 frames, 300 mats and readymade frames, we can create a design for any budget.

How much will it cost to frame my artwork?2019-12-31T06:56:26-08:00

While the exact price depends on the design choices you make and the size of your artwork, we will help you find an option that suits both your style and your budget. Visit a Framing Expert to get a free consultation and price estimate.

How do you insure the artwork is safe from the effects of acid over time?2019-12-31T06:55:56-08:00

We can frame your artwork using what we call a preservation or museum mounting using acid free materials and protective UV glass.

How do you avoid the collection of moisture between the glass and the art?2019-12-31T06:55:31-08:00

In many cases, moisture is present in the artwork itself, so only proper spacing will prevent it from sticking to the glass. Our Framing Experts can use mats and/or spacers to create a gap and allow for airflow between the art and the glass.

What type of tape do you use to attach the art to the mat?2019-12-31T06:55:05-08:00

With a preservation mount (placing the art on a board to go into the frame) we want it to be removable and reversible, so we have several techniques that suit each individual art piece. Never hesitate to ask how our Framing Experts will mount your piece. For photographs and other reproducible artwork we suggest a dry mount.

My frame will hang in direct sunlight, is there something I can do to protect the art?2019-12-31T06:54:39-08:00

We offer a 99% UV protection glass option.

Are my materials too thick for the picture frame?2019-12-31T06:54:09-08:00

Probably not! After all, these are custom frames and shadow boxes! We can add space to the back of a frame or layer frames to build enough depth for dimensional objects.

The glass is so reflective I can’t see my art, what can I do?2019-12-31T06:53:23-08:00

Our Conservation Masterpiece® glass and non-glare glass provide reduced reflections, amazing clarity and 99% UV protection.

How will I know how to pick the right frame?2019-12-31T06:52:51-08:00

Bring your artwork to one of our stores and get a free consultation from one of our Framing Experts. They will guide you step-by-step through the process, helping you choose a design based off your style and what would best suit the artwork.

How wide should my mat be?2019-12-31T06:52:27-08:00

It depends on the size of your art and the frame you choose. However, our Framing Experts think that wider mats create a better stage—so to speak—for most artwork.

How will I know how to pick the right frame?2019-12-31T06:51:57-08:00

Bring your artwork to one of our stores and get a free consultation from one of our Framing Experts. They will guide you step-by-step through the process, helping you choose a design based off your style and what would best suit the artwork.

Can I purchase a mat or the glass without purchasing a frame?2019-12-31T06:51:34-08:00

You certainly can! Many of our customers want to refresh a previously framed item, and this is a great solution. We can even help add a custom mat.

Do you ship or deliver?2019-12-31T06:51:12-08:00

Sorry, not at this time.

How is my artwork inserted into the frame?2019-12-31T06:50:49-08:00

It depends on the artwork, but we offer several mounting methods, from dry mount to stitched mount and preservation-grade mount.

How long will it take to receive my completed order?2019-12-31T06:50:24-08:00

10 business days or less! Your art work never leaves our shop, we assemble everything onsite.

How does a Framer’s Special Package work?2019-12-31T06:49:59-08:00

The Framer’s Special package allows you to get a great deal on select frame collections. For one great price, you’ll get the frame, mounting, Conservation Clear® glass, and hanging hardware. Visit the store to see a Framing Expert for more information.

What is Custom Framing?2019-12-31T06:49:27-08:00

A custom size frame here at Craft Warehouse is any size or depth. We can produce almost any size frame your heart can imagine. Our only limitations come into play with the width of the moulding- the thinner the frame, the smaller the maximum size will be.
