Canvas Frames and Floater Frames

Canvas frames are commonly used to frame paintings on stretched canvas or painting panels. These open back frames have deeper profiles than traditional frames and are designed specifically to hold stretched canvas. Canvas frames come in a variety of finishes including metal, wood, and plastic and will suit any subject, décor, or environment.

Canvas frames are open back and made to hold stretched canvas, but they can also be used for other types of artwork such as photos and artwork created on paper. To frame flat artwork, just add a pre-cut mat, a glass or polystyrene face, a backing board, and hanging hardware.

A common style of canvas frames are called floater frames. These frames are designed specifically to create the illusion that the artwork is floating inside the frame. It has a deeper profile than a traditional frame, and the back is typically open. The artwork is secured within the frame by a rabbet (a groove on the inside edge of the frame) or by other methods that allow a small gap between the artwork and the frame's front. Floater frames are most commonly used for thicker pieces of artwork, such as deep edge canvases.

When choosing a canvas frame, it is important to consider the size and weight of the canvas, as well as the overall style of the artwork. You should also make sure that the frame is made from a sturdy material that can support the weight of the canvas.
