Built for Looks and Protection

From the matting to the backing boards, every component we use in our frames is archival and acid-free. Each one of our comic frames comes with a pre-mounted mylar bag that will hold you comics securely and fully protect against decomposition, moisture, mold and mildew.

To guard against UV rays that can fade and discolor printed material, we offer acrylic glaze options that provide maximum protection from the sun and surrounding light sources. Your collectibles will always look their best, and stay that way for the long haul.

Getting the Sizing Right

Comic books can vary in size, and there is no guarantee that a standard, ready-made or IKEA photo frame will fit your issues. It's important that the aspect ratio of your frame matches the comic, otherwise it will look unbalanced or not have enough room inside the frame. When framing with us online, measure the dimensions of your issue to the nearest 1/8", and then select the size that fits best.

We've prepared a handy guide to common comic book sizes below.

Common Display Sizes

Make sure to double check the dimensions of each issue you are framing, as there are always exceptions among publishers and titles that overlap these eras.

Type Years Published Dimensions (wxh)
Modern Age 1985 through today 6.625" x 10.125"
Bronze Age 1970 to 1985 6.625" x 10.125"
Silver Age 1956 to 1970 7" x 10.125"
Gold Age 1938 to 1956 7.25" x 10.25"
Platinum Age 1897 to 1937 7.5" x 10.5"

Framing Recommendations for Comics

There are three main framing options to consider when it comes to comic books.

  • 1. Our recommendation for the best way to frame a comic book is floating it on top of the matting inside a mylar bag. Your comic will sit on top of the matting so that the entire cover is revealed, with a border of white or black around it for maximum visual impact. Spacers are added between the book and the glaze to create enough room for everything. Your comics will look their best inside the frame and stay in top condition.
  • 2. The straight fit is simply a frame sized to fit your issue, with a little bit of tolerance so that everything fits inside. The edges of the book will be slightly overlapped by the lip of the frame and covered up.
  • 3. Adding a mat on top of your comic book will add a visual border around your collectible that draws in the eye and makes a bigger impact. However, the matting will cover about 1/4" of your comic on each side to hold it in place, and it can be difficult to keep the book centered within the opening.

Straight Fit

For best results, you should always use a bag that is sized specifically for your issue with as little extra room as possible. We offer two sizes that are a nice fit for Silver Age through Modern Age books, and pre-install them so that each comic is positioned perfectly and displayed from edge to edge.

No need to risk sending your comics through the mail, these frames come to you and arrive with everything you need to frame at home in 10 to 15 minutes. The back of each frame is closed, but you will be able to open it up and swap in different comics any time you like.

Each frame also arrives with the wire and the wall mount hardware for hanging your finished comic book frame. All you need is a hammer and the right spot on the wall!
