What framing services do you offer?
Can I get an artwork framed through Rise Art?
You bet. We can arrange framing for most artworks on the site. And what's great about this is that your artwork will arrive ready to hang. Convenient right? You wouldn't want a print rolled up under your bed for months because you don't have time to investigate other framing options.
Our framing is top quality, and we're not just saying that. The materials we use meet archival standards i.e. the type of framing you'd see in a museum or public gallery.
What frames do you offer?The choice comes down to black, white or walnut coloured wood frames. You’ll see in the photos below that the black and white have a smooth painted finish, whilst the walnut has a wood-grain finish.
If you have something different in mind, we can give you advice and organise alternative frames.
What kind of mounting is available?
We use two types of mounting: float mounts(we tape the work to the back, so it looks like it is floating over – looks great for items with interesting paper and edges) and window mounts(we create a window from which the work appears – great for photographs and prints with a white border). We choose the one that we think suits your artwork best. If you have a preference though, just let us know.

Do the frames come with glass?
We mostly use acrylic glazing instead of glass. Acrylic looks just as good and it’s less breakable. That said, if you’re set on glass we can make arrangements. And if you’d like UV/anti-reflective acrylic or glass, let us know and we’ll make it happen.
Which is acrylic and which is glass? We can’t tell either.
Do you frame canvases?
Absolutely. While you don’t have an option at checkout to do it, just reply to the confirmation email with the request and we will organise it for you.
Can I get a rented artwork framed ?
Absolutely, we frame rented works the same way we’d frame a sold item. This means that the artwork will come ready to hang, so it can go straight up on the wall - no hassles. Please note that we frame prints and paintings that are on paper - we don’t frame canvases.
Want to know more?
For those interested in the nitty gritty, these are our standard dimensions :
- Moulding - 19mm wide by 33mm deep. For larger frames we can use moulding that’s 28mm wide by 42mm deep.
- Spacer (this is the space between the artwork and the glazing) - 6 to 12mm for a float mount and no spacer for a window mount (the mount sits flush against the glazing).
- Mount (this is the border around the artwork that meets the edge of the moulding) - 50mm to 75mm wide. For very large works we might use a smaller mount.
- Acrylic glazing - Standard 1.5 or 3 mm thickness.
