WOOD VS. METAL PICTURE FRAME MOULDING

Depending on your needs and the project itself, there are many reasons to choose a metal picture frame over a wood one. Let’s look at some of the key differences between the two of them and why you’d choose one over the other.

DURABILITY

One of the best reasons you should choose a metal picture frame is its durability. Our metal frames are strong and do not warp/twist over time.

And while wood frames look beautiful and offer a whole slew of different customization options, they are also more prone to break or chip.

EASE OF CONSTRUCTION

Depending on the level of DIY’er you are, ease of construction should be a significant factor when considering what kind of frame to purchase.

The only tool you need for a metal picture frame is a screwdriver. No other special tools or equipment, just a screwdriver.

But for people who like to put in a little extra effort, wood picture frames require nails, glue, and elbow grease to look good. Still easy to assemble but just a bit more work than a metal picture frame.

STYLE

Metal picture frames offer limited choices when it comes to customization and options. These frames are best used for photography and galleries as their minimalist design does not distract from the art inside.

Wood picture frames allow for nearly endless customization as you choose which finish you’d like, the engraving pattern, and even the type of wood. If you want the frame to be a part of the artwork, go with wood.

3-STEP PROCESS FOR ORDERING THE PERFECT METAL PICTURE FRAME

Framing 4 Yourself’s 3-step process makes ordering metal picture frame moulding simple and easy.

STEP 1: PRE-CUT OR DO IT YOURSELF?

Are you looking for something pre-cut? Or do you want something a little more customizable? Either way, we’ve got you covered. Choose whether you want to build your frame or have one sent to you already put together.

STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR STYLE

We offer a variety of metal picture frame styles, including various color options and finishes.

With our menu of design options, you can pick the style that best fits your layout.

Lastly, pick the size of the frame you’ll need.

If you’re looking for a pre-cut metal picture frame, choose the right size for your project.

TIPS FOR ORDERING A METAL PICTURE FRAME

There are three steps to work through when purchasing a metal picture frame.

First, what is my frame size? To determine this, know that the size of a metal frame is always considered the interior of the frame, the part containing the glass, mat, art, and backing.

If you know the size of the items going into the frame, you’ll know the size of the frame.

Next, be aware of the allowance. Whenever a frame is built, the frame builder adds an “allowance” of 1/16 inch along each edge, but Framing 4 Yourself already adds the allowance when we cut the frame for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Lastly, think about the stack clearance. The stack clearance is the distance between the top and bottom of the extrusion and affects whether or not everything fits into the frame.
