Ordering Information


Our frame pricing is based on the inside dimension of the frame and includes assembly. To figure a frame price, simply add all four sides of the outside dimensions of the piece you want to frame and multiply by the price per inch of the moulding you choose. Be sure to measure canvases at the corners. Round fractions up to the next whole inch before multiplying. Our minimum charge for a frame is $6.00. All prices and specials are subject to change without notice.

All mats, foam core, glass and Plexiglas are priced by the united inch. The united inch is the width plus the height of the particular item you are pricing.

The smallest frame we make is 4 inch x 4 inch.  Frames are cut to the size you specify plus 1/8 inch allowance. We can also cut exact measurements, either inside, outside or sight size. We provide a 1/8″allowance on all frames in case the art, mat or backing you have is slightly out of square. This insures your artwork fits properly.


Colors on this website are as accurate as possible, but actual color can differ when viewing on different web browsers. Moulding finishes can vary from batch to batch and may not correspond exactly to the online image. These variations are beyond our control and are not considered grounds for return. If the variation is substantial, we will call you. If a match to the online image is critical, request a free sample chip before ordering.


1″ to 2′ samples can be requested at any time free of charge. A complete set of chip samples is $45.00 with free shipping. Frame and liner corner samples are $2.00 each.


Orders are usually shipped within 4 to 8 working days of receipt. If you have a more urgent need or a specific due date please let is know.

The largest assembled frame we ship without extra charge is 98 total inches (19″x 30″ frame). Oversized frames ( 20″ x 30″ & larger ) can be shipped assembled at $12 to$18.00 per box oversize charge which is added to the base shipping. Very large assembled frames can be sent by CHOP or motor freight. CHOP service is also available to avoid the $18 oversize charge.

The frames in your order are packed in perfect condition. Each order is shipped in a custom-made box with ample packing to cushion the contents during transit. However, if damage does occur: Note any external damage to the box (holes, tears, dents, etc.). Look especially closely at the corners of the box. Damage may not be obvious, like crushed corners or sides that have rebounded. INSPECT CONTENTS OF BOX UPON DELIVERY. If contents are damaged, follow the instructions packed with the order. Keep the shipping box and packing for inspection by the shipper. You must notify us of any damage within 10 days of receipt.


All frames and corner samples are custom made for you; therefore we cannot accept returns or exchanges unless we have made an error or there are defects not noticed by us. Should a frame need to be returned, you must first contact us to receive a return authorization number. Returns without a return authorization number will not be accepted.
