These frames are characterized by presenting the photo panel with distance to the glass. The most common display frames are used as follows:
locked up or with a white border around the photo
photo panel such as a Diasec or ChromaLuxe can be used instead of glass.
We distinguish ourselves in our handmade solid wood frames, traditionally made. All thicknesses and depths are possible, if technically feasible.
Subsequently, our frames are spray painted to the desired color in our spray cabin. The back of each frame has a stable and solid construction. A hanging rail over the entire width of the frame is standard with our handmade display frames.
To make communicating easy, we have given our Wilcovak handmade frames the names of European capital cities.
These are based on the thicknesses and depths of frames. However, anything is possible, if it is technically feasible.
|Type of frame||dimensions w x d|
|Amsterdam||20 x 50 mm|
|Parijs||15 x 40 mm|
|London||30 x 60 mm|
|Berlin||40 x 80 mm|
|Madrid||10 x 30 mm|
As an extra option it is possible to choose a sloping edge or a facet edge.
We create space between the back plate and the photo panel. The photo appears to float in the frame. You can decide for yourself how much you want the artwork to float. As long as the depth of the frame allows the dept of floating.
You can also determine the white or black border around the photo panel yourself. We are happy to advise you on this.
We can take care of this traditional way of framing. We are happy to advise you which thickness of the museum board and a color that suits your photo best.
By framing your artwork this way, the depth of the frame may be less deep. The passe-partout ensures that there is space between the museum glass and the artwork. We can provide large sizes of passe-partouts. Of course the material we use is always acid-free.
