Recessed Acrylic Box Frame

Recessed acrylic box frames are, no-worry picture frames, with a built-in 3/8” spacer. Framers appreciate the simplicity of these frames, as art packages fit easily and just need to be screwed in place.

Do you know the dimension you need?

  1. Our frames are ordered by inside dimension (ID) – basically, the size of the art. We automatically give the frame a 1/16” tolerance, unless you request otherwise. 
  2. Acrylic box frames are frequently used with fabric-wrapped strainers which may make a larger tolerance necessary.  

Have you considered screw hole placement?

Standard hole placement is 3/8” from the back edge of the frame to match our standard 3/4” x 1 3/8” poplar strainers. Custom hole placement is available upon request. 

Have you reviewed the material and finishes options?

We offer a number of options for materials and finishes beyond the “standard.
