18 X 24 FRAME TUTORIAL

how to frame

We wanted to make an easy frame tutorial that used quality, yet affordable materials anyone could follow to frame our 18 X 24 Etsy Shop prints. Again, once you’ve printed your engineered 18 x 24 print at your local print shop, these steps should be fairly straightforward to display your art. Thanks again for your support, and we hope you enjoy your print(s).

Supplies:

5. flip frame back over and mark where backing goes. I used an arrow to know the top from bottom

6. if you purchased several of our prints, take some time to center print and mark where it goes (this makes it super easy to line up when switching out different prints)

7. stain or paint (if desire, make sure you stain the thin plywood piece as well)

8.  secure backing with screws again, add hooks, etc…and enjoy!
