Each framed print already includes the necessary hardware for hanging on the wall.  All you need is 2 nails, a hammer, and an open space on the wall.

The total dimensions of the print including the frame will differ slightly depending on the selected frame style. The frame widths are listed below based on the selected style:

 

  • Standard Frame: 1.25" wide - This frame will ad 2.5" total inches of width to your print. So, for example, if you purchase a print that is 24" wide, after framing it the total width would be 26.5"
