Your Printing & Framing Options

PRINT SIZES

  • Listed sizes refer to the size of the frame, not the image.
  • All unframed prints have a 1" white border around the image to allow for matting and framing.
  • When using a mat, it will come to the edge of the image but not cover part of the image.

 

QUALITY

 

ALL OUR CUSTOM HIGH END FRAMES INCLUDE

  • Natural wood frames in multiple color options
  • 4 to 7 day lead shipping time
  • UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 95% of UV rays and twice the price of glass
  • Acid-free, archival mats and materials which prevent images from fading
  • Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame
  • Taped backs to prevent dust and humidity from getting between the image and the glass

 

MATTED PRINTS AND FLOATED SHADOW BOXES

  • Floating or matting an artwork will reduce 2-3 inches to the size of the image
  • The mat never covers any of the image
  • We use premium Crescent conservation-grade, acid-free mat boards. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or fading.

 

IT IS ALL IN THE DETAILS

MUSEUM QUALITY PAPER & CANVAS PRINTS

In combination with the latest printing technology, The Picturalist uses 100% archival rag paper and archival inks, to achieve stunning prints in rich, vivid colors.

We print photographs on thick, white, premium grade matte paper. Canvases are a fine poly-grade blend with 1.5" stretcher bars. For effortless framing, all prints feature a 1" border. We also use solid wood frames exclusively, including maple, oak, alder, cherry, or walnut.

We offer you traditional 4-ply mats in choices of colors. These frames feature a sharp and thick angled edge between the mat and the artwork. Our framed prints also feature wood moldings and archival UV acrylic glass. They come ready to hang on your wall with a hanging wire that adjusts to vertical or horizontal hanging options. Framing includes a 2” white, off-white, or charcoal mat (or no mat).

Floated framing is another option. It combines the impression of a high quality mounting under acrylic glass with a classic wooden frame profile. It gives the appearance of an artwork “floating” in its frame, a technique employed in art galleries and museums throughout the world.

 

MUSEUM QUALITY FACEMOUNT ACRYLIC PRINTS

Modern and sophisticated, acrylic glass prints are break-proof, glossy, light and friendly. They create an almost magical picture depth and elegance.

When choosing acrylic, you can add a frame or not. Thanks to invisible French brackets, unframed acrylics seem to float on your walls. If you prefer a wood frame, we offer options in white, dark walnut, or black with a silver leaf or gold leaf trim.

Our gallery style frames are mounted to the back of your artwork, without glass.

 

MUSEUM QUALITY FACEMOUNT METAL PRINTS

If you would like your images to stand out with a striking depth and glossiness, aluminum mountings are a good choice. We also offer you images printed directly onto aluminum using our 7-color process UV printer. In this process, inks dry under UV light. Images are sealed using an aluminum sealant.

When choosing aluminum, you can add a frame or not. Thanks to invisible French brackets, unframed aluminum prints seem to float on your walls. If you prefer a wood frame, we offer options in white, dark walnut, or black with a silver leaf or gold leaf trim. Our gallery style frames are mounted to the back of your artwork, without glass.
