FLOATER FRAMES FAQ's

Top 5 questions we receive about our floater frames.

#1 - Q: What will the total size of my painting be if I add a frame?
A:  Frames will add 1 square inch to the full size of your painting, example a 36”x36” will become 37”x37” framed.
 

#2 - Q: How large is the float between the canvas and the frame?

A: The float space between your painting and frame is approximately 1/4”. 

 

#3 - Q: Should I frame my painting?

A: This is truly a personal preference. Since we started offering frames about 85% of our clients order their painting with a frame. No matter what the choice, when ordering a stretched canvas it will arrive to you back-wired and ready to hang.

 

#4 - Q: What is the quality of your floater frames?

A: When it comes to our floater frames the quality matches frame shops and is what we like to call gallery quality. Our frames are custom made here in the USA and our clients rave about them. Please visit my client reviews and client photos to see what they say!

 

 #5 - Q: How deep are the floater frames?

A: The depth can vary depending on the size of your artwork as well as the color of your frame. For 36"x36" - 30"x40" and 24"x48" and smaller: black, white and maple frames are 1.5" deep the metallic frames for these sizes are 1.1/4" deep. For all sizes larger and custom sizes: black, white and maple are 2.5" deep and metallic frames are 2" deep.

Artist Notes: ❀

• Floater Frame Processing time.
As soon as a painting is purchased with a frame, I order your floater frame immediately. This way your frame is being custom made while I am creating your painting. For ready to ship paintings, please allow 8 to 12 business days for me to receive your frame. You can always contact me to check my current availability.

 

QUALITY FRAMES AT COMPETITIVE PRICES.
❀ I do not profit from frame sales, I offer this service for clients who buy my paintings as a thank you for supporting my artwork. This service can also help you save time and money that comes along with going to a pricey frame shop. Also, not everyone can fit an XL painting in their car to get it to and from the frame shop. I am very happy that I can take all that fuss away and ship all size paintings to your door ready to hang and beautifully framed.
