Floater Frames & Canvas Floaters

The floating effect is achieved with three styles of floater frames: Stair step, L-shaped, and Tapered frames. There is a space between the edge of the floater frame and the edge of your canvas, that gives it the "floating" effect. The frame is attached to the back of your canvas so no nails or screws will be visible and you do not need glass or a backing to hold it in place. These frames are perfect for various depths of canvases so you do not need to worry about finding the right one for yours!

Stair Step
This type of floater frame has a small "step" inside that provides a uniform amount of space between your canvas and the edge of the frame. No guess work is needed for these frames, just simply mount your canvas inside and you are finished!

 This type of frame tapers at the front to leave a uniform amount of space around your canvas. This frame is very minimalistic since you won't see a step between the frame and canvas.

L Shape 
 To achieve the floating effect, we add 1/2" to your artwork's dimensions so that there will be a 1/4" space all around your artwork. Mounting your canvas into this frame takes a bit more time since you have to make sure the space is even all the way around.
