Framing Guide

A stunning piece of art can make a masterpiece of any room, particularly when it’s expertly framed.

We’re proud to offer a wide choice of framing options to complement your chosen artwork and interior colour scheme.

This guide aims to assist you when choosing a frame. 

Frame Sizes

Once you have chosen a print, you’ll need to choose a size.

Most of Lucy’s prints are available in a range of dimensions depending on the orientation of the artwork and whether it’s an ‘open’ or ‘limited-edition’ print. 

Please note: limited editions are not available in little prints.

The image below shows Daisy artwork in a 10 inch, 15 inch, 18 inch and 26 inch print, which has then been mounted and framed.

Bevelled Frames

Boxed Canvases

Selected square shaped images on this website can also be printed directly onto canvas, stretched and framed without glass. This is a lighter option than framing and can create a more modern look to the finished piece. 

Also known as a floating canvas, boxed canvases have a contemporary feel to them with a chunky frame and a small gap surrounding the artwork, which make it look as though the art is floating inside the frame – hence the name. 

 

 

Canvas on Board

Canvas on board looks more like a traditional frame, but without the glass.

 

 

Further Information

The frames shown on this website are an artist's best impression of the frames we use and therefore there will be slight colour and size differences to those shown. As a general guide the frames seen here are approximately one inch wide by 1 inch deep.

We only use good quality frames from a reputable framer established in their line of work for over 25 years.

Aside from the frames illustrated on this website we can source almost any type of frame for your picture however this would be treated as a special order and may take longer to organise than the times quoted under 'Delivery Information' on my website. If my framer has your chosen moulding in stock then the timing may not alter. The prices on alternative frames will be quoted for on an individual basis and may be more or less than the standard prices used on this website.

If you have any questions about framing please get in touch via the contact page and we will endeavour to help.

Caring for Perspex

In most instances water will be sufficient to clean general dust and dirt.

Use a soft cloth moistened with water to gently wipe dirt away. A soft cotton cloth like an old t-shirt or a microfiber cloth is ideal. Turn the cloth often to keep a clean side on the glass.

Try to avoid rubbing the dirt on the surface because this can cause scratching.

For more significant amounts of dirt, use a cloth that is very wet with water. Gently swab the cloth on the surface and allow the water to lift the dirt and “rinse” it away. Once most of the dirt has been removed with the water, use a second cloth to clean the glass using the same technique described above.
