How Do I Order a Print Only at AmericanFrame.com?

Artists have relied on our art and professional photo printing services for high quality results for many years. In the past, we have received questions about how to order a print only via our website. With the many capabilities of our new site, ordering a print is now fast and easy to do! After uploading a digital file, our website guides you through the process with minimal steps, allowing you to choose from a variety of papers.

Follow along to learn the easiest way to order art printing through AmericanFrame.com

From the homepage, hover over the “art and photo printing” tab to reveal a drop down menu. Click on “Art and Photo Printing” from the menu to be taken to the printing homepage.

At the art printing homepage, explore paper and canvas options by hovering over each paper type. Items are organized by the following categories: paper, canvas, Plexiglas, and Aluminum. Once you’ve explored all the options, click “get started now” to begin the ordering process.

From this menu, find your image by clicking “browse.” Check “I Agree to the American Frame copyright policy” and begin the upload.

Once uploaded, click “continue” to go to the next step.

Now we are taken into the print and frame workflow. If you were ordering a frame package, you would choose your frame, mat, acrylic, mounting board, and accessories from this easy to use workflow. However, since we only want a print, we will only be using the first three tabs.

 First, choose your paper type.

If you have any questions about the types of paper, consult the question marks to the right of each paper.

In the “size” tab, choose from recommended sizes or enter a custom size if you don’t see a size you’d like from the recommended sizes. Recommended sizes are based on a range of standard widths. Custom sizes will retain the image proportions at the custom width you select within the pixel range of 120 PPI.

In the “options” tab, decide on image editing options. We offer three different editing packages or choose “none” if you do not want any editing done to your image. We recommend proofs to check the resolution or color of your image if you are unsure or want to see how the image will look before ordering it in a larger size.

select image options

Now we’re ready to remove the other frame package components. At the bottom of the page, see all the different frame materials. To the far right, click “remove” to remove the frame, mat, acrylic, mounting board, dry mounting and assembly.

After removing all the other pieces of the frame package, you are left with a single print! Easy, right!?

We hope you find this tutorial instructive and helpful. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at customer.service@americanframe.com. Love your art, frame it right!

Mikidad,

We are not experts in art evaluation. But if there's anything related to framing or printing we can help you with we would be glad to. Perhaps you could try contacting your local museum? Hope that helps!

I would like to know if I brought in a paniting you could identify it and give me an evaluation of how much it is and where I could go about selling it and a few other questions. Thank you.

if I don't want the frame and acrylic, can I still order the mat and the drymount?
