Our exhibition quality frames have been selected for their simplicity and ease of pairing with the broadest selection of artwork. We have chosen black and white wooden frames in solid matte lacquer finishes, the profile dimensions of which have been carefully selected to best suit the size of your print.
Unlike many online art handlers, when you purchase a framed work from Ghostly International Editions, the mat and frame are custom sized to fit the artwork you have purchased, ensuring the best look possible. This means that if you purchase a framed print whose original canvas dimensions are listed as 16” x 20”, but the actual artwork is 8” x 18”, the canvas will be cropped to yield an even mat border. In this example, the total finished frame size would be 15 ½” x 25 ½” (allowing for a 3” mat border and the ¾” frame profile).
All framed photo rag work comes mounted with ultra-clear acrylic and acid-free 8-ply matting. On the reverse, frames have an acid-free paper enclosed back, pre-set hanging hardware, and the artist signed certificate of authenticity mounted to the back.
Cotton/poly canvas prints are mounted with a traditional float frame and allow for between a 1/4" and 1/2" space between the canvas edge and the interior edge of the frame. The canvas is stretched over a stretcher bar, mounted into the floater frame, and secured from the back. All canvas prints mounted in a floater frame are sealed with a UV protective spray coating. The backs are finished as with the framed photo rag prints.
For all framed pieces: The image will be mounted with an archival adhesive to white, 3mm, archival Sintra. The Sintra will be the exact size of the frame and will eliminate any possibility of shifting during shipping. It will also provide a flat and rigid surface.
