The perfect frame for my painting
I chose the CF5 Black Frame for my painting because I wanted a simple understated frame that would enhance my painting and not detract from it. I received my "first" frame and realized that it had a chip in a corner (not the fault of pictureframes.com). The shipping company had damaged the box. After I called to bring it to pictureframes.com's attention, they sent me out a new replacement frame at no extra cost to me. I am very appreciative for them making it right even though it really wasn't their fault.

These frames are great value for the money, adding heft and polish to my paintings.
These frames add a classy finishing touch to my gallery-wrap canvases, without adding a lot of expense. In the past I've used custom closed-corner floater frames - nice, but considerably more expensive, and with the narrow face, I don't feel the tiny corner seam is an issue.

Great looking
This is the second review, the larger ones do not fit well, however the smaller ones are perfect. I bought two small white ones 8 X 8 and one black 12 X 12. These are worth the money, wish they would get there act together for the larger ones.

Poor delivery service
I ordered this frame and after a few days I receive a call from a third shipping company saying that I have to be a home from 1pm to 4pm for delivery. I try to change that time, or the delivery address so I don't have to waste three hours of my day waiting for a frame, but the weren't flexible at all. I called Pictures.com and they said they couldn't help me, that I have to "call them and make arrangements", which I already did. Other times I ordered they left the package on the front porch. I don't know why this time would be different. It didn't say in the order page. I guess I'll have to plan on wasting 4 hours (3+ 30 min commute both ways) waiting for a frame tomorrow. It will be an expensive one. Last time I order from Picturesframes.com.

Alberto thank you for your feedback. We apologize that the order was not delivered the way you expected. Based on the 40"x40" size of the frame, the frame needed to be shipped via Freight. I have reached out to you by phone and left a voicemail. I was hoping to elaborate that we were able to set the delivery time at 5pm. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at the phone number I left on your voicemail. Thank you again for the feedback.

Perfect and easy
I needed to frame a 10x20" gallery wrapped canvas and your frame was perfect; it went on quickly - very easy and enhanced my painting, which I submitted to an art show recently. I had been having trouble finding frames for the thick gallery wrapped level 3 canvas that I prefer and I am glad to know where I can find them now. Thank you.
I needed a frame for this deep 10x20" gallery wrapped canvas and the CF5 was perfect!

The painting is a large waterscape with boathouses. It’s orientation is vertical/portrait. The painting will be hung in an alcove. The floater frame defines the shape but does not distract from the painting.

I own a painting of the beach at sunset by a local artist that is on a long canvas. She is my wife's friend from art classes and they both prefer to paint on 1 1/2" gallery wrapped canvases. This frame will give the painting a finished look and make the subtle colors "pop".

When I order the size 24x24 do I need to add 1/4 inch on each side so there is a space to make it look as if it is floating or do I just order 24x24 and the space is automatically figured in?
Jacki N on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jacki. Please order size 24"x24" exactly. As an industry standard we automatically add 1/8" allowance to the width and height. Therefore, the frame size will actually be 24.125"x24.125". Happy Framing!
How should I deal with a 40 x 30 canvas but one inch deep?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The CF5 frame will work with your 1" deep canvas. Your canvas will recess inside the frame by 5/8". Typically, customers use a space filler such as cardboard, or ply wood to fill in the 5/8" space. We are happy to advise you further if you can call us at 1-800-332-8884.
I have artwork on a 3/4. (.75) canvas. Will it fit?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2017

Will you ship to a P O Box? I don't have home mail deliver. Linda
Linda L on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Linda! Thank you for your inquiry! We require a physical address to ship boxes larger than 16"x20". If your order exceeds that size we can NOT ship to the PO Box. I hope this information was helpful. Please let us know if you need anything. Happy Framing!
i have a 40 x40 canvas that is 1.5" deep. Does this frame for that size?
Adrianne O on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Adrianne. Thank you for considering us for your framing needs. The CF5 frame is 1 5/8" deep which will work with your canvas. Thanks again for your business.
the depth of my canvases varies, will it matter if the canvas is not 1.5"?
kiley on Sep 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I assume the CF5 frame is a floater frame that I have used many times. (I say this because when I typed in CF5 frame, I didn't get a specific frame.) Yes, it matters. The z clips that come with the frame only work for a certain canvas depth. If you can get deeper clips then you can use shallower canvas depths. ( I tried shims but found they didn't work well.) I love the look of floater frames and wish you the best with your painting.
Does the frame come with screws to attached my canvas to the frame?
Babs S on Feb 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but I think I wanted more reinforcement, so, since I use a lot of these, I've stocked up on all necessary hardware. Sometimes my order is in multiple boxes, and I can misplace the hardware packet, or use too many of the allotment on one frame...
I need a frame that will fit a 48x48x21/4" canvas?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The canvas surface will protrude beyond the frame if not deep enough to match the thickness of your canvas. If you can order it with a 2.25 depth you will love it. Frame is excellent quality.
can i paint the frame?
Chaim F on May 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi. You could -- use this commercial painter's trick: rough up the frame with fine steel wool or 400 grit wet / dry sandpaper and plain white vinegar. Let dry, wipe off any dust (do not rinse). Then paint -- the new paint will stick well without chipping.
I have a 36x36 CF5 wood frame. On the instructions, it only tells how to attach the brackets to the wood stretchers on canvas artwork. Can someone give me detailed instructions on how high/low to attach the hanging clips and wire? Should I go about 1/3 way down frame (12 inches)
suzanne t on Dec 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: as a general rule, I go about 1/4 down from the top, It hangs better closer to the top. So if the length of the frame is 36", I would go down 9" from the top. The wire when pulled taught should rest about 1 1/2" from the top of the frame for clearance of whatever type of picture hanger you are using.
I have a an oil painting I'd like to reframe. It is 24" in width and 36" in length. Will the 3/4" depth of the canvas work with this frame? Thanks
Anne M on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anne Mae, the 3/4 canvas would work best with a frame which also has a 3/4" depth such as the CF1. Here is a link to it https://www.pictureframes.com/Custom-Frames/Natural-Wood-Custom-Floater-Frames/CF1-black-wood-canvas-floater-frame. As always, happy framing!
My gallery wrap canvas was sold as 24 x 16 x 1.5. At one corner it measures 16-1/8" but 16" at the other. Do I add the 1/8" to my measurements or count on your tolerances to cover the difference?
JollyToo on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Give the exact measurement of the canvas if you are ordering a floating frame. Call the customer service team and they will guide you to what you need.
are these frames shipped assembled?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. However, it is super easy to assemble and looks great. I'm very happy with this frame.
I need a bigger size than your drop down menu has. Can i get a 52 x 96" frame?
Marge M on Sep 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Marge. For larger than 83", please contact our customer care team to order at 1-800-332-8884. They will be able to advise you if this is possible. They are in the office Monday-Friday 8am-7pm eastern time.
What is the depth of this frame? My painting is 1” deep.
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1,5 deep is fine with a 1 inch thick canvas. The frame will stick out beyond the canvas a bit but it still looks great. I sell a lot of painting this way- almost a shadow box effect.

Do these have glass?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! These beautiful frames are not designed to support glass, but instead these frames are for Canvas only. Unless otherwise noted on our site or catalog, our frames don’t automatically include acrylic glazing and foam core backing kits. We don’t sell glass for frames, we sell picture-frame quality acrylic which is plexi-glass. Glazing and backing kits are not included automatically because not all artwork or customers need them for framing. Canvas paintings, for example, would be damaged by glazing of any kind. These are offered as separate add-on items during the ordering process which can be added after a frame size is selected. Thank you for your inquiry!
Hi, My canvas is 7/8" deep. Which size frame should I buy? CF1 or CF5?
B D on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello BD! The rabbet/depth of the CF1 is 11/16" in depth which will work with your canvas. The CF5 which has a depth of 1 5/8" is way too deep for your canvas. Thanks!

I have a 48" x 36" x 1.5" canvas giclee I want to frame. How does the frame attach to the canvas? If the canvas is slightly warped after stretching, will the frame straighten this imperfection?

Please see the video below for more guidance. If you need more assistance, please give us a call at 1-800-332-8884. Happy Framing!

Will this work for a 36x24 canvas or is that too big? Also how easy is assembly?
Heather F on Dec 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Heather! The CF5 will work perfect with a 36"x24" canvas. However, the frame is 1 1/2" deep, so do make sure it will accommodate the depth of your canvas. You will receive all of the necessary assembly and hanging hardware, which will make the assembly fairly easy.
