Types of Picture Frames

An illustrated guide to framing your artwork

Framing artwork is just as important as choosing the perfect ring for a diamond. The right frame enhances the artwork, works with it in both texture and color, and, ultimately, completes it.

In this guide, we'll review the most common frame types and pros and cons of each. For canvas paintings, we will cover Gallery Wrap and Museum Wrap, Floating and Modern wood frame. For works on paper, we will show examples of Wood and Metal Glass frames.
