Custom Wood Frames and Points


Frame Destination sells custom wood picture frames. On our website you can select the type of wood moulding, matboard, mount board, and glass or acrylic. One of the less obvious choices for our wood frames is the points. We use flexible metal taps called points that we fire into inside edge of the wood frame to hold all the contents in place. See the picture. If you are ordering everything from us you can use an easy selection for points which is “fit contents ordered”. We will place the mat, backing, and glass into your frame and the fire the points in directly behind the mount board. If you are going to use your own glass, mat or backing board then you will need to determine how thick everything will be and then select the proper depth for the points. For example, say your picture is already dry mounted on 3/16 inch foamcore and you buying wood, mat, and glass from us as a complete wood picture frame kit. Your foamcore is 3/16, our glass is 2mm which can rounded to 1/8 and 4-ply mat board is 1/16. Once you add all that up you end up with a total of 3/8 inches and so you select that option for the point’s depth.

Cheers,
Mark

  • [...] Frame Destination has recently added 6 new black wood picture frame profiles. They all have a smooth matte black finish ideal for gallery style framing. They vary from 3/4 to 2 inches wide. Our new wood frame 876 has 7/8 inch rabbet to allow plenty of room for double triple mats and spacers. It is just a little wider than our popular 3/4 inch wide profile such as 872 so it is better suited for larger frames. Our new wood profile 880 is even larger. It is over 1 and 1/2 inches wide and has a full 1 inch rabbet making it ideal for even larger framing jobs. If you don’t need a lot of depth, but you want more frontal presence to your frame our wood frame 875 has a full 2 inch wide face. We also carry the mats, mountboards, and glass or acrylic, and we can do custom wood frames. [...]
