This black shadow box frame features a substantial rabbet depth of 2-1/4”, ideal for framing deep shadowbox items such as jerseys, memorabilia, hobby collections, and floated objects. The profile width is 1”.
This black shadow box frame is also ideal for deep stretched canvas paintings and any art where a substantial thickness in the frame would provide a desired visual weight to emphasize the importance of a work of art, whether it’s a matted paper print or a painting on panel.
For shadowbox designs consider using strips of matboard or other thin material to build up the walls, in order to hold your glazing of choice toward the front of the frame, while your backing matboard sits toward the back of the frame.
Due to the neutral qualities of this contemporary black shadowbox picture frame, just about any mat color might visually work with the frame, and color decisions may depend more on the items being framed than what complements the frame itself. However, a few color suggestions from our acid free archival selection of mats include White Glove 9500, Black Belt 9632, Blue Night 9830, Plum 9840, Greenery 9623, Wise Green 9527, Toasty 9514, Pewter 9895, and Field Mouse 9597.
