This page allows you to order frames either wood or metal. You can order just a frame or add on acrylic, mats, backing boards and accessories to finish it off. There is no site that we know of that allows you as much customization as ours. We have worked hard to give you the power to create true custom picture framing designs. This area is the fourth generation of ordering we have had. Each time we create a new ordering layout it is more powerful then the last.
We put videos about the products and how to use them all over the site, be sure to look for the video icons if you get lost or want some clarification about something.
In the last version you had to go to a specific place to order a custom mat. No longer necessary start with a frame or a mat and add on to it how you see fit.
Order oversize mats (up to an outside size of 40 x 60).
Have the window of the mat cut as a circle or an oval.
Add a fillet to a mat.
Add liners to your frame and see them in the design preview so you can see how they will look when you order them.
Upload your art and select canvas floater frames to see how you art looks in them also.
Just like the old version you still have the ability to upload your art so that you can see it as you go through the design process. Be sure to take advantage of saving your designs. You can save them so you can easily place future orders if you order the same thing over and over. You can create multiple designs and bounce back and forth between them to help make a decision about which one you like best.
Crescent select mat backing board bainbridge archival foam
3/16" Acid Free Foam Core 1/16" 4-Ply Acid Free Mat Board Bainbridge artcare acid free foam core and Crescent select 4 ply mat board. This combination is what we use for the highest level of preservation in our frame shops. A museum with a very valuable piece might wish to substitute a 100% rag (cotton) mat board in place of the alpha cellulose archival board. Tradition and hundreds of years of experience have demonstrated the long lasting nature of cotton papers; however the Library of Congress has tested the alpha cellulose boards and lists them as a fully archival board. The Crescent select boards have also passed the Photographic Activity Test P.A.T. The largest size this can be ordered is 40x60. We do not have acid free mats larger than this size.
3/16" Acid Free Foam Core and 1/16" 4-Ply Acid Free Mat Board A combination backing board, Bainbridge foam core is a material to go behind your art as well as a piece of conservation mat 4ply (1/16" thick). Two separate pieces provide excellent protection for fine art framing.
