really disappointing
I ordered 2 frames exactly the same size. The length and width requested were 1/4 inch different. One set (frame, & plexiglass) was just great.
The other had the frame cut square and the plexiglass cut too long on one dimension, and too short on another--this meant we had to a) cut off some on one side, and b) place it very carefully to complete the frame--ie, it's just barely clamped into place, as it does not extend all the way to the frame sides.

We adapted it ourselves, rather than return it, as we were giving the framed photos as gifts, and did not want to mess around with returns and waiting... But, it should have been obvious to the supplier that neither the plexiglass panes nor the frames were exactly the same size.

High Quality Perfect Fit
I am so pleased with the several Matte Black 111 frames I purchased for matted watercolors. The frames are of great quality, easy to put together, and quite sturdy. My paintings look excellent in them. They were packaged with great care and everything arrived in perfect condition. I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

Not sturdy and too thin to hold the plexiglass
These frames looked good but for a 20"x30" image they did not overlap the plexi enough to keep it together. Very difficult to make work... won't buy it again.

Nice metal frame
I ordered this just to see it as I have other metal frames in both black and silver. This is a nice frame with a subdued, delicate look. There is just enough frame width to set off the matt from the wall. Very nice look.

Can I buy hanging hardware only? I bought a 111MBLK Matte Black Frame for a 2x4' horizontal poster that gets moved around quite a bit. People tend to grab it in the middle of the frame, which flexes and allows the foam-core mount to slip out of the rabbet and the spring clips pop off. It occurred to me that if I used a couple of the wire hanger attachments to connect the top and bottom rails, that wouldn't happen, but I don't know where to find them locally. Thanks.
Wallace S on Jul 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Wallace! Thank you for being a customer with Pictureframes.com. We are happy to send you additional assembling hardware and hanging hardware at no charge.

What is glazing?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2017

Hey, does this frame come with a supporting leg? so I can put it on my table.
Jia W on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jia,

The frame does not come with an easel back. If you are getting the frame in a popular size you can add an easel back to your order. To see all easel back sizes and add to your order go here: https://www.pictureframes.com/framing-supplies/easel-back.

It sounds like you are going to be framing a paper photo. For paper prints, we recommend adding the acrylic front and foamcore backing to your order to keep your artwork secure and protected.

If you have any additional questions do not hesitate to contact our friendly framing experts at 1-800-332-8884.

Happy Framing!
Will this frame be strong enough to hold a 48” x 48” masonite board and plexiglass?
Katheryn H on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend this for the materials you described. It sounds to me a bit on the heavy side for this size and a thin metal frame. If there was some way to hand it from the masonite that would take the weight off of the frame. My other suggestion would be a solid wood frame.
I have artwork that is 13" by 71", I want to frame it using the 111MBLK. Do I order using those dimensions or go a little bigger on the frame to ensure it fits?
Sean H on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Order the exact size of your artwork but note that the edges of your artwork will be hidden behind the black facing width of the frame. This did not matter for me as my artwork was black around my edges so no artwork was covered up.

If your artwork design goes all way to the 13” by 71” consider buying a frame with a thinner facing edge or mat it then order the exact dimensions for the matted size.

Hope this helps! I love this frame!

I would not go bigger as the clips won’t fit snugly around the back of your artwork and may
If I click on frame only, does is mean the frame will not have a back side?
selin A on Feb 15, 2017

Can I get a frame that fits a 42"x24" picture?
Harold S on Oct 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can certainly receive a frame in that size. You would just need to simply place those measurements in as your artwork size. Please note, if you choose this frame, it will ship unassembled to you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our care team at 1-800-332-8884. Thank you and happy framing!
Can I complete my order for this frame with acrylic only, without foamcore backing?
I bought two photos which are mounted on backings already, complete with signed mats; so I need only frames and glass/acrylic.

Would this work if I am trying to frame a 36" x 60" flag? Thinking of ordering the basic frame, no back no front, in 36" x 60"
nicole p on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Nicole. This very popular frame is designed for posters or artwork mounted on a thin mounting board. The Flag will display just fine inside the frame, however, you may want to consider attaching the wire in the form of a 'cross wire' to add more support to the narrow 3/8" profile. In order to do so, you would attach one wire horizontally, and then attach an additional wire vertically on the back of frame. If you need more guidance, please give us a call at 1-800-332-8884. Thanks!

Would this work as a frame on the outside of a mirror already adhered to the wall? Thank you!
blbostian on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Brooke. Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, you can use the frame around the mirror but you will need to adhere the frame to the mirror with an alternative hanging apparatus. We do not have a hanging apparatus for mirrors already attached to the wall. We typically do not use a metal frame with a mirror due to the weight of the mirror, but in your case the mirror is attached to the wall. Please let us know if this information is helpful. Give me a call directly if you want to discuss this more over the phone. We can be reached at 1-800-332-8884. Have a great day!
How deep is the frame; will it support a 3/4" deep canvas? when seating the canvas, how much overlap does the frame have onto the canvas? Was types of fasteners does the frame have on the rear, to fasten the work of art in? or does that need to be purchased separately?
Renee P. on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Renee! Thank you so much for reaching out to us. The 111MBLK frame is only 3/8" deep and is not suitable for a 3/4" canvas. However we do have a NCBLK frame that has the same characteristics with the depth you need. The NCBLK is 1" deep and has the same sleek, clean finish as the 111MBLK. The overlap in our frames is what we consider to be the 'lip' of the frame. That overlap is 1/4"-3/8". Ordinarily the overlap is 1/4". The assembling and hanging hardware is included with the frame. The artwork is secured inside the frame with spring clips. If you have any additional questions, please let us know.
I want to get a frame that exactly fits my piece, how much do I need to add to the outer dimensions to leave space for the frame edge? In other words I want the opening to be exactly 19+3/8" by 22+5/8" so should I make the frame size 19+5/8" by 22+7/8", i.e., add 1/4" to each side?
MARIANNE D on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Marianne! Thank you for your inquiry. Please do not add to the width and height of your frame. As an industry standard we add 1/8" to the given width and height. Therefore if your artwork is size 19 3/8"x 22 5/8", the inside dimensions of the frame will be 19 1/2" x 22 3/4". We can custom cut the frame to be exactly 19 3/8"x 22 5/8" but that will require us backing the size down to 19 1/4"x 22 1/2". In order to ensure accuracy, we also need to alert our Operations Team of the exact size needed. We suggest that you call us to place the order over the phone if possible. We can be reached at 1-800-332-8884.
what is the hanging system used?
A shopper on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello! Thank you for reaching out to us for your framing needs. The 111MBLK Metal frames have a very popular sleek design. The hanging system consist of two d-rings and hanging wire. We are more than happy to email you an image of the directions that shows the hanging mechanism. Please contact us at customercare@pictureframes.com; Attention Shea. Thank you again for visiting www.pictureframes.com. Happy Framing!
I am buying an art print, which says, 13 x 13 for the art itself and 16 x 16 with border. I want to make sure the mat covers the whole border, without covering too much of the art, so I am thinking I need to type 13 x 13 in for size

My other frames are 3/8 wide black metal with 2.5 mat, so I am thinking I can choose 2.5 mat and I am guessing it won't affect the inner measurements, just the frame size, right?

I am not sure whether to chose glare free versus heavy duty, can you give a logic of when to choose, which? This will be in a bathroom, and won't have sunlight on it. I am not sure if heavy duty will protect it more from people bumping into it and anti-glare would make it look better with the bright LED lights.
Deb L on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Deb! Thank you so much for considering us for your framing needs. Based on the art size being 13"x13", the borders on the mat will need to be 1 1/2" to fit the overall size of the print which is 16"x16". You will need to navigate to the Custom Mat section on our website. Hoover your mouse over Custom Picture Frames, next click on Matting Supplies, then click on Custom Mats. Please enter the artwork size then the custom borders. The type of acrylic you will need is the Classic Clear Acrylic. The heavy duty will not protect the artwork. However, we have security hangers that will keep the frame stabilized on the wall. You will need to call us to order the security hangers. If needed, please give us a call so we can place the order for you over the phone. We can be reached at 1-800-332-8884. Have a great day! Thank you for your business.
My puzzle is 13x39 should I order 1/2 in. Larger?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please enter the frame size to be the same size as the puzzle, 13"x39".
Does this frame come with glass cover for the art work?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This frame does not come with glass. We recommend using Acrylic instead which is a plex-glass like material. The acrylic is to be added on with the frame, and is not included with the frame.
