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.

I've always loved Ampersand panels but had trouble finding floater frames at a reasonable price unless I bought in bulk. So, I was thrilled when they started making these. This was my first time to use them. They worked like a charm! With everything included, they are a great value and save me time by not having to go to the hardware store for screws and hangers. Now, I wish they had more sizes available.
Love the frame!
I used this frame to quickly frame a piece I gave to a friend. It really gave it a finsihed look, and was easy to mount.
Perfect fit for my 3\4" canvas frame. Thin edge made the painting stand out.
Great frame for the price!

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 Frame for Mounting Boards
from Los Angeles, CA
It was really easy to mount my encaustic art on board in this floating frame. I only with they included the little lifters in all styles, as I had to make some to get the right height. But the end result was beautiful! I'll be buying more to mount pieces for my upcoming show. #sweepstakes

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!!
