My "go to" frame
I use these frames constantly to sell my artwork. They are hardwood (not easy to find these days). The black in particular hold up well to traveling (I do art festivals) and small nicks can easily be repaired. The size is a nice medium size, does not overwhelm smaller artwork (16x20, 18x24).

Little nervous at first to order without seeing a fit, but the certification fits not the frame perfect. I chatted with a rep and she told me what I needed to know to make the purchase.

Great frame but pricey
I love the frame and the workmanship is excellent. Maybe, as you can see from the photo, I should have selected non-glare. At the time, I was worried it would subdue the colors of the artwork. The only reason this isn't 5 stars is that the frame costs more than the art did!

My daughter's graduation photo

I purchased a similar frame years ago, with a mahogany finish (AR7), and I love it. The low profile adds a subtle air of elegance to the framed work without being overbearing. I prefer this particular frame style in situations where I want to use a wood frame instead of metal.

CONTEMPORARY YET TRADITIONAL LOOK.
R Douglas P on May 12, 2017
A larger frame width and mat at 3.5 inches can make a big difference in setting off a larger watercolor. The white mat isolates the painting colors against a neutral white and makes them brighter.

does glass come with it or just the frame?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello ~ This frame came with a double mat and the acrylic sheet (instead of glass) that I ordered.
The frame and mat and acrylic were PERFECT!!!!!! The packing of the items was done with such care, it was tremendous. One other thing I really liked with Picture Frame compared to another popular frame company, is the way Picture Frame covers their acrylic sheets. The covering is labeled and is easy to remove...not so with the other company.
If you order just the frame, the mat and acrylic sheet will not be included in your order.
The Picture Frame website 'walks' you through all the steps, so you get EXACTLY what you want.
All the Best!!!
Hello - I don’t want a glass or acrylic cover, but interested in the foam core back. Is it possible to just get that? If not, do you think it would be possible to fit a thin layer of cork behind the art (very thin paper) and the backing / frame? This is being used for a push pin map and need something for the pins to stick into.

BEST ANSWER: Hello!

Thank you for your inquiry. If you call our friendly framing experts at 1-800-332-8884 they would be more than happy to place an order for you that includes the frame and backing only. Specialty orders like this have to be done over the phone. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy Framing!
For AR2 Black Frame - what is the dimension of the rabbet in the other direction? On the diagram I see that it is 1/2" deep but how much of the rabbet will cover the edge of my artwork? Need this to order the right size. Thank you!
joel g on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It sounds like you are talking about what we refer to as the lip of the frame, typically it is 1/4" that would extend over your art to hold it in the frame. We recommend ordering by the size of your art work, the back opening of the frame will be cut to the size you specify. If you are trying to have extra space around your art you may want to discuss specialty options with our Customer Care Team at 1-800-332-8884.
Is there a wire and hanger included?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello. Yes indeed! We include the hardware and hanging wire with the frames. Happy Framing!
