You asked we listened!
We are so proud to now offer large-format Framed Prints in 30x30, 30x40, and 40x30 sizes featuring our newly developed wide profile moldings for Design Aglow's signature frame styles! From here on out, all our frames 20x24 and up will feature stronger, sexier moldings to ensure the lifetime quality of your fine art photography.
Here is what you need to know:
Why is bigger better?
Our new wide, more substantial moldings will ensure your frame's integrity and stability to eliminate potential sagging and bowing over the lifetime of a frame.
So, for sizes 20x24, 24x24, 24x30, in Ready-Made and Framed Prints, in addition to the new 30x30, 30x40 and 40x30 sizes for custom Framed Prints, will be built utilizing the new wide profile moldings.
What is the difference between the standard and wide profile?
Our new wide profiles have the same finish and perfectly match our existing, or standard, molding finishes with only a slight increase to the face width of the frame molding.
Hawthorne Frames sizes 20x24, 24x24, 24x30, 30x30, and 30x40 will have a wide profile that includes an extra beaded row with 3 rows instead of the 2 beaded rows our standard Hawthorne profile showcases.
• 9/16” face width with a 1” face depth
• 2 rows of square beading
• 3/4” face width with 1” face depth
• 3 rows of square beading
Laurelhurst Frames in sizes 20x24, 24x24, 24x30, 30x30, and 30x40 will have a wide profile, that due the design, have a slightly elongated beveled ridge that is wider than the standard molding. The finish remains the same.
Standard Profile - 9/16” face width with a 1 5/16” face depth
Wide Profile - 13/16” face width with a 1 5/16” face depth
Sellwood Frames in 20x24, 24x24, 24x30, 30x30 and 30x40 larger have a wider, sturdier profile black and white only, no wide profile in grey. There is no change in the finish.
Standard Profile - 3/4“ face width with a 1.1875" face depth
Wide Profile - 1.1875“ face width with a 1.1875“ face depth
Hollywood Frames molding will stay the same across all sizes. But we have implemented a new and improved gold-leafing process with a protective clear finish so the exclusive champagne finish of Hollywood is more durable and beautiful than ever.
