Welcome to dickblick
Finally, a do-it-yourself frame specifically designed for use with wood panels — but it's ideal for stretched canvases and flat panels as well! Every detail of the Ampersand FloaterFrame has been designed and engineered to deliver a simple, all-in-one framing solution that protects your artwork while giving it the finished look it deserves.
Made with premium hardwood, the Ampersand FloaterFrame features precisely constructed reinforced corners, a wider drill base, and pre-drilled countersunk mounting holes. All mounting and hanging hardware is provided to quickly and easily attach your artwork to the frame, including mounting screws, screw eyes, a hanger, picture wire, and bumper pads.
The Ampersand FloaterFrame is available in Maple, Black, and White finishes and in two elegant styles — a thin 1/4" face and a bold 3/8" face. Both easily accommodate 7/8" and 1-1/2" profile artwork, but will also fit 3/4" stretched canvases and flat panels with the included riser system.

Great frame for the price!
By Painter Greg
from Wakefield ma
Finally an affordable floater frame with narrow edges!
I bought this to frame a painting on a flat panel. The provided risers were either too high or too low, but I made my own and they worked fine. I prefer float frames for my work, so was really pleased that this worked so well for a piece of Masonite. Would like to see these in more sizes, especially 9x12, 12x16 and 18x24. And I love the narrow edge!

I now own an 8 x 8 inch floating frame but my 8x8 canvas doesn't fit into it. It's slightly small for the canvas so it isn't flush. Nice frame but useless unless they get their measurements correct.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that your canvas wasn't a good fit for this frame, and we see that our Customer Care Team is already working with you on a solution. We appreciate your feedback!
Fantastic and easy for mounting boards
from Los Angeles, CA
It was really easy to mount my encaustic painting on board into this frame. I do wish they included risers in all styles. I had to make some myself. But the end result was beautiful.

I would buy this again but it needs improvements
from New Orleans, LA
These worked just fine, and I like the flexibility in depth they provide and that they came fully assembled, but I gave them 3 stars because the corner joints don't look so great on the face of the frames. All it would take is a quick sanding before putting on the finish (I ordered white). Also, just to note, the white is a different color than the ampersand boards, at least claybords. But my pieces looked fine in them. I will order them again likely, but would love them to worry the corners more.
Love, love, love these frames
Simple, straight forward brilliance. Please make them in bigger sizes!!
Great product... I would by again!
from Indianapolis, IN
This is a really great solid wood frame. Everything is included so framing is very easy and the instructions are very easy to follow. I only wished they offered a wider variety of sizes or offered some sort of custom option.

Perfect for a tricky project
from Boulder, CO
Needed frames for 2 oversized crepe paper flower sculptures, a Red Dahlia and a Yellow Rose, both of which, naturally, are round and 3-dimensional. Adding a foamcore backing with heavy black paper over that to the open back of the frame was easy; the flowers fit perfectly glued in place. The petals overlap the front of the frame most artistically, and the satin -finish black frame sets the big flower off beautifully.Very impressed with all the materials and directions provided with the frame. The corners are perfect, the whole frame well made.

frames are great. Canvas panels will work with them as will stretched canvases. Easy to assemble
