Adds so much value
I find that my paintings have added value when I use these frames. I have ordered them many times. They come so well packed, that I can use the packing to mail my pictures to buyers. They always fit well in the frame and you can order precisely to fit. I highly recommend.

My Acrylic painting was on stretchers that had become warped. This frame solved the situation. The stretchers are now held taut, and my painting looks more finished. Very pleased.

I would like a frame a canvas that measures 20"x24" with a width of 2/3." what would you recommend? Also what is the meaning of the second measurements....i.e. the second field that I can enter 1/8, 1/4 and so forth?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! This frame is designed to support a Canvas with a depth of 11/16". We can certainly cut the frame to a size of 20"x24". The second measurement is for 1/4", 1/2" and so forth. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks!
What is the distance from the outside of the frame to the outer canvas edge?
Dane S on Oct 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dane! Thank you for your inquiry. The amount of space between the Canvas and the edge of the frame is 1/4". Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Happy Framing!
Will this frame work with a 1.5" deep stretcher?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for inquiring about the CF1 frame. This frame will NOT work with a 1.5" deep canvas, however, we have the same profile in the depth you need which is the CF5. The depth of the CF5 is 1 5/8". See example below. If you have any additional questions, we are happy to assist you. Have a great day!

Hello, I have a canvas that is 3/4" deep in the size of 36"x48". Would this frame work?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I bought that frame for a 12x24 canvas and 3

Yes, I bought that same frame for a 12"x24" canvas at 3/4" deep and it fits perfectly
I have a work that is 27.6 H x 23.6 W x 0.8 in. How should I order the correct size?
Benjamin A on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have ordered many CF1 frames over the years. These floater frames are designed for paintings with a "cradle", either one glued to the flat panel or stretcher bars for a canvas. This frame would not work for a thin flat panel, as the panel is attached to the frame by screws from the back. This would work for a panel that is 0.8 in. thick but the surface of this panel will be above the top edge of the frame,and not protected by the edge of the frame, which is designed for canvases up to 3/4" deep. For this reason I wish the company would produce a floater frame for canvases or cradled panels up to 1" deep. Many of my cradled panels (commercially manufactured) are 7/8" deep, and I can't use the CF1 frame for these paintings. Give the company the exact dimensions of the painting, and the company will automatically make the frame about 1/8 inch larger.
Is this frame suitable for a poster (thin paper) or only for a thicker canvas?
TONYA on Apr 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a floater frame and should only be used for a stretched canvas. A poster on thin paper should be framed in the way you would frame a water color painting, with a backing board under glass. Good luck!
can an art PRINT work with these frames? also I would attach the print to a foam board or something similar?
Catherine D on Mar 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I use floaters for 3/4 and thicker canvases. They're held i place by screws in stretchers boards and back of framae. This would not be possible with mat board. I'd recommend a more traditional picture frame where the print etc. is held up against the glass,(if present) and the rabbit of the frame and backed with wood, foamcore or some other semi rigid backing. IN short, no I don't think the floater would work for a printunless mounted on a aboard lthat can be screwed into. Jim
I have a photograph I would like to frame. Do you have a black floater frame that would work well for this?
Alexa on Jan 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think this is more for canvases?
I have a canvas that is 1 1/2" thick- would this frame be okay?
Taryn P on Nov 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would buy the deeper one. This one will work but the 2" deep one would look better and protect the canvas better.
Picture frames...a question for you...how do I talk to a representative about another issue? Moira Geoffrion
Does this frame comes with any cover plexiglass or regular glass?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2018

Thank you for your inquiry. This is a floater frame and they are not compatible with acrylic (plexiglass) or regular glass. This type of frame is ideal for canvas framing, giving the canvas artwork a floating effect.

Does the frame come with backing and acrylic? I have to ask because we ordered custom frame from a different website and they overcharged us for just a wood frame with no back or acrylic protector and said they charged extra for them as add ons.
Davalynn T on Jul 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Davalynn,

Thank you for your inquiry. This particular frame doesn't require acrylic and backing because it is a canvas floater frame. It is meant to have a canvas inserted from the front and screws are used in the back to hold it in place.

Our standard frames typically do not come with acrylic and backing as part of the order. Acrylic and backing are considered finishing touches to a frame and are an addition to the order. We do this as an eco-conscious business decision. Many of our customers didn't use the acrylic and backing when they came with the orders and created unnecessary waste.

If you go to this page https://www.pictureframes.com/Ready-Made-Frames and shop our Photo Frame Collections you will get all-inclusive frames that come with all the components you are looking for and maybe more. If you have any additional questions do not hesitate to contact our friendly framing experts at 1-800-332-8884 or via LIVE chat Monday - Friday.

I have 1/2" stretched canvas, that I would like to frame. The dimensions are 36" x 24" What size frame should I order? If I set the frame dimensions to 36" x 24" will that be too small to fit my canvas? If so, what size would you suggest I order?
Kelsey P on Dec 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kelsey. We recommend ordering the exact size of your canvas to ensure a proper fit. Thank you!
can I get this frame CF1 made in dark grey?

Would it be possible to have a frame made in a size smaller than 6 inches square?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! This gorgeous frame does not come in a size smaller than 6". Thank you for your inquiry!
Will this frame work with a canvas panel that's about 1/4" thick?
PhotoLady on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Marlene! This beautiful frame is designed to hold a canvas that is 11/16" and will not work with a thin canvas panel. You will want to consider a frame with a more shallow depth/rabbet. Please toggle the frame depth to 'shallow' to find more suitable frames. Thank you so much for your inquiry.

Will the floater frame work for a 1/2 inch thick canvas?
Dan L on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dan! Thank you for your inquiry! The frame depth/rabbet is 11/16" and will work with the 1/2" deep canvas. Please let us know if you need further assistance. We can be reached at 1-800-332-8884. Happy Framing!
My canvas is 3/4" in depth. Will the face of the frame be flush with the painting surface?
Meredith M on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Meredith! Thank you for your inquiry. The depth of the CF1 frame is 11/16" which is 1/8" less than the depth of your canvas. The canvas will protrude from the frame very slightly by 1/8". This may not be visible to the naked eye unless you point it out. The canvas will appear flush in the frame even though there is a slight 1/8" difference. This is the closest rabbet depth we have to 3/4" available with this floater frame. If you need additional assistance, please let us know.
