True to its name, the Blick Sotto frame augments your artwork without taking center stage. This lovely polystyrene frame features a softly curved profile that is perfect for framing both traditional and contemporary works of art. Available at a value price, the Sotto fits multiple canvas sizes, and is ideal for galleries, homes, and offices.
Blick polystyrene frames consist of an extruded polymer core onto which a hot foil finish is applied. Sophisticated manufacturing processes give the frame moldings several advantages over similar wood moldings, including a lower price and higher quality. Comprised of three elements — the Core, the Skin, and the Finish — these frames offer superb consistency of quality and style, all at a value price.
The Core — The Core is made from extruded foamed polymer that is derived from approximately
The Skin — Only virgin polymer granules are used to create a very smooth, hard outer surface onto which hot stamping foil is applied.
The Finish — Hot stamping foils are applied to the smooth, hard outer skin. Sometimes several different foils are used on a single molding, or grain and textured patterns are embossed into the surface by gently heating the skin.
Note — Frames are sized by the opening, not by the outside of the molding. To determine the size of frame to order, measure the outside of your artwork and order that size frame.
Frame Depth — To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Color Matching — We do our best to match the color of frames, both on our website photography and in our catalogs, but differences in technology may affect the appearance of the photo on your screen. You are entitled to return, for refund or credit, any frame that does not meet your expectations. Remember that the frame size is the size of the artwork a frame is designed to hold, not the exterior dimensions.
