Tabletop Frames are frames that do not require hanging. These frames will have an easel back or some other sort of support attached to the backing material to hold the frame upright on a flat surface. In general, this support should allow for the frame to be displayed either in a portrait or landscape format. Tabletop frames also tend to be smaller with 16" × 20" usually being the largest size offered.
Wood Tabletop Frames are made from various types of woods. These frames tend to be finished so that the wood grain is visible or gilded with gold or silver leaf. Medium heavy in weight, these frames are typically used when framing canvas.
Metal Tabletop Frames are made from a variety of metals, but usually aluminum, and can either have a metallic or painted finish. Simple in their design and appearance, they are suitable for framing photographs or drawings.
Lightweight Tabletop Frames are made from plastic or extruded polystyrene. These frames are considerably lighter than their wood or metal counterparts. They are ideal for framing larger works that were completed on heavy substrates, such as wooden panels or hardboard, where additional weight added by the frame could be detrimental or cumbersome.
