Curators’ Choice Pre-Designed Picture Frame Kits

At American Frame, we’re proud to offer many different types and styles of custom picture frames, custom framing matting, and acrylics (as well as other useful picture framing supplies) and let you decide exactly what you want. Our DIY picture framing kit collection is exceptional.

We also proudly offer Curators’ Choice, a series of pre-designed, professional-level combinations of picture frames with mat boards.

It takes the guesswork out of the frame design process.

(We can even print and frame your artwork. Just upload your image at AmericanFrame.com.)
Each of the Curators’ Choice designs include fine archival picture framing materials including conservation mat boards, archival mounting board, and framer’s grade acrylic. And for the maximum protection of your artwork, you can upgrade to UV protected acrylic or Tru Vue® Optium Museum acrylic.

The American Frame design team created these museum-quality combinations with eye-catching color combinations, textures and proportions. You can use them as is, or customize the size and colors to your personal tastes.

All elements in every Curators’ Choice combination have been produced with our proprietary PrecisionCut™ technology for precisely perfect mat cuts and mitered frame corners.
