CUSTOM FRAMING CHOICES


Any of our prints (metal or fine-art paper) can be framed and matted to your specific taste and decor requirements. We feature a wide range of high quality frames from both Larson-Juhl and Roma Italian mouldings. Wood frames look great around our prints which feature nature. Please contact us with your specific framing requirements. You can also order "just the prints" (metal or fine-art paper) and have your local framer handle them if you prefer.

Please also see our Custom Prints & Projects page for additional examples...

FRAMING OPTIONS FOR METAL PRINTS

The prints on brilliant aluminum metal offer a wide range of presentation styles, from conventional wood framing (just like ordinary fine-art paper prints) to ultra minimalist presentations.

1. JUST THE PRINT (NO FRAME). This option allows you to order just the metal print itself, and then frame it just like you would any fine-art paper print. In fact, we (or you) can use any of the frame types above (wood frames) - they look GREAT around metal prints also. Your local framer can also frame it using traditional wood, aluminum or any other frame choices to your liking and exact decor requirements. Anything you can do with a regular fine-art paper print will also work for metal prints (you just do not need any "glass" on top of the print). The aluminum print is about 1/8" thick (approx). This style is shown below:

 

 

2. METAL FRAMED TO EDGE (BLACK). This option is where there is a 1" (approx) black metal aluminum frame behind the print, visible from the edges, and aligned exactly with the edges of the print. This creates a "gallery box" appearance when hung on the wall. This style is shown below:

 

 

3. METAL FRAMED TO EDGE (SILVER). This option is where there is a 1" (approx) silver metal aluminum frame behind the print, visible from the edges, and aligned exactly with the edges of the print. This creates a "gallery box" appearance when hung on the wall. This style is shown below:

 

 

4. FLOAT METAL FRAME. This is where there is a recessed metal frame behind the print, but it is not visible from the front or sides. The print appears to "float" off the surface of the wall about 1". The recessed metal frame is still there behind the print, and used to hang it on the wall, it's just not visible from the sides. The thickness of the actual metal print is about 1/8" inch, typically with black or silver (bare metal) sides. This style is shown below:

 

 

5. STANDOFF METAL FRAME. This is where there are 4 mounting posts (silver) on each corner of the frame, visible from the front and sides, and used to hang it on the wall. This style is shown below:

 

 


 

PANORAMA (PANO) PRINTS. Larger custom sized pano prints on metal are usually framed to edge (black or silver). Shown below is one framed to edge black. The frame is about 1.5" deep.
