Frame Guide - Vivid Metal Prints

Frame Guide

Vivid Metal Prints believes that your image should be the star of the show. Our framing options support that belief by showcasing your metal print rather than surrounding it.

Small Prints

For small prints, you have a choice between Wall Mount or Easel. The only decision you have to make is whether you intend to hang it on a wall or sit it on a surface.

Larger Prints

For larger prints, you have a choice between Float, Frame to Edge, or Shadowbox. 

With a Float, your metal print will appear to be “floating” ¾ of an inch away from the wall.

With a Frame to Edge, you have a choice of Black or Silver color, ¾ inch aluminum frame to complement your image.

With a Shadowbox, your metal print will be enclosed by the frame, giving it extra polish.

If you prefer to frame your print yourself, select "Metal Only" and you will receive the imaged aluminum panel with nothing on the back. It is roughly the thickness of a dime, about 1/20th of an inch.
