black float frameI highly recommend using the Artist's Canvas for most installations. They can be hung "Gallery Wrap" style, with the image mirrored on the edge of the 1.5" deep stretcher bars for a contemporary, gallery look. Alternatively, you may prefer a solid color edge to match other design elements in your room, and create an edge frame appearance, without a frame.

If you prefer to use a frame, the frames we offer are heavy-weight solid wood construction. Contemporary in style, the black, natural, or white blend with most decors. I am personally fond of the black float frame (photo at right) for canvases. However, if the natural finish is preferred for your selected art piece, they are an excellent choice. If you prefer to have your own framer create a custom frame for your new artwork, I recommend the 3/4" deep stretchers, as this shallower depth will give you a wider selection of mouldings at the framer.

Works on Canvas are generally more durable than works on paper, and DO NOT require glass. All of my fine art canvas prints are coated with a satin finihs, non-yellowing UV resistant varnish for protection, durability, and long life. 

Watercolor Paper

Works on paper are generally more delicate than works on canvas and should be framed behind glass. Be sure your framer uses acid-free, archival materials to ensure no harm comes to your artwork. Frame prints behind glass and use a lint-free cloth to clean either surface, and be sure to spray cleaning solution on the cloth—not the piece itself. Ultraviolet protection and anti-glare options are available. Also, avoid hanging in direct sunlight or in settings that are very humid.
