How to Frame Your Prints, Posters and Pictures

Be your own custom framer

Getting anything framed and up on your wall can be painful, confusing and expensive. You're either out hunting for a decent quality frame in just the right size, or paying 10x the cost of the art itself and waiting weeks with a custom frame shop.

Level Frames can help you custom frame your prints, posters and photos without leaving the house or breaking the bank.

First, let us know what you are framing by providing the dimensions of your artwork to the nearest 1/8".Next, you'll see your artwork represented onscreen and can preview different frame and mat combinations until you find the one that suits best. Use the controls to change the frame color, frame width, mat border and mat color. Your preview will update dynamically as you scroll through various options, and we can even suggest an optimal "Golden Ratio" configuration if you are unsure.

If you'd like to preview your print or poster inside the frame, click on "Preview Artwork" that you will see right next to the "'Golden Ratio" button (top right of the page).

The final frame is handcrafted and shipped to your door within a week. When it arrives, simply follow the instructions that we provide to insert your artwork and mount the frame on the wall using the included hardware.

If convenient, we can frame your artwork in-house. Just reach out so that we can coordinate getting it to our framing studio, or note “Contact me for pickup” in the Special Instructions field at checkout.
