**FRAMING GUIDELINES

All art must be framed and ready to hang in simple frames in black, white, or natural wood. The actual frame moulding does not need to exceed 2” and must be submitted with backing wire or french cleats and ready to hang. Your work does not need to be professionally framed, which can be costly (and collectors often have work framed the way they prefer after purchase). This look can be achieved by utilizing frames already on the market. If you’re interested in professional framing we suggest hiring Frame This and including the cost in your retail pricing. We can also frame your work for you for a fee, and will include information about this once selections are made.
