canvas float

Float Frame

Ideal for showcasing original drawings and works on paper or any artwork with special edge details such as a deckle edge.

Our standard practice involves raising the piece with a 1.5" space around, creating depth and shadow for enhanced visual impact. This method sets the artwork deeper in the frame and behind high-quality acrylic for added protection.

You can customize the dimensions around your artwork to suit your preferences and choose a frame color from our standard selection by reaching out to our team.



Mats create a visual buffer drawing the viewer's eye inward and focusing attention on the piece itself. The added depth and dimensionality can make your artwork appear more substantial and professionally presented.

We add a 3" white core mat with a bevel cut opening, automatically matting around signatures or edition numbering unless instructed otherwise. Our use of 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board ensures the longevity of your artwork.

Reach out to our advising team for tailored adjustments in mat dimensions or colors to suit your preferences.

full bleed

Full Bleed

most commonly used in contemporary and minimalist artworks, such as photography, digital art, prints, where a clean and seamless presentation is desired without the distraction of borders or mats.

Our standard practice for framing full bleed involves flush mounting the artwork to the edge of the print, ensuring a seamless appearance, and using spacers to set the artwork slightly deeper behind the acrylic for added protection and sleek presentation.
