The Gallery 510 Frame Shop

What should I do if there are important details near the edge of my artwork?

When framing your artwork you need to know that there is a ¼” lip (called a rabbet) on a frame that holds your artwork in the frame so it doesn’t fall through the hole. If your artwork has important details that you don’t want covered up by the rabbet, you still have options. One is using a mat because you can cut the hole in the mat (called a window) so only 1/8” of the artwork is covered on each side. If this still won’t work you can float the work on top of a mat, but this carries with it other problems as it needs to be adhered to the surface. Depending on the artwork, you may or may not want to use tape to adhere the artwork. Bringing your artwork that needs to be framed to a professional frame shop can help solve any problems. Gallery 510 is ready to serve you.

Photographs that are being printed can be made with a ¼” or 1/8” white border to solve this problem of details that might be right on the edge of the print. In this way the rabbet or mat comes just to the edge of the image and covers nothing of the actual image.
