Expert Articles on Framing Your Artwork

At American Frame we have a passion for framing and also for teaching what we know. We’ve been doing this since 1973, and in that time we’ve gained a lot of expertise and we’d like to share.


Here you will find links to articles we’ve posted that address important questions about framing and your art.

To keep framing information close to your fingertips, check out our DIY Guide to Framing Fundamentals. If you have questions relating to a particular project and need ‘one on one’ expert assistance, Ask Mike.
