Artwork & Framing

Frequently asked questions about our handcrafted solid wood framing options and the artwork, prints and posters we sell here at Well Made, Chicago.

 

Artwork & Framing

+ How do I choose the right size?

Simply measure the width of your artwork and find the closest frame set. For example, our 25” frame set is made for 24” x 18” Landscape-oriented prints, or 24” x 36” Portrait-oriented prints. Custom sizes are made to order in our Chicago, USA wood shop in sizes up to 72” wide.

+ What are the product dimensions for standard size STiiCKs?

Each set of STiiCKs comes with 4 pieces, each measuring 0.75" x 0.375" x Length. Once mounted at the top and bottom of your artwork, your print will be centered between a 0.75" frame, with your print slightly elevated off the wall.

+ What are the product dimensions for Gallery STiiCKs?

Each set of Gallery STiiCKs comes with 4 pieces, each measuring 0.5" x 1" x Length. Once mounted at the top and bottom, your print will be centered between a 1" frame, with your print elevated off the wall 0.5".

+ How strong are the magnets?

We use incredibly strong rare earth neodymium magnets that frame paper, photographs, linen, fabric – even canvas extremely well. However, the magnets actually do not hold your artwork. The magnets are mounted below the surface of the wood, creating a strong and even clamping pressure across the frame. If you're worried that the magnets will not hold your artwork, we would reccomend upgrading to Gallery STiiCKs which are made using larger magnets than our standard sizes.

+ Can I mount them vertically?

Yes. Although STiiCKs are most commonly mounted horizontally on both portrait and landscape oriented prints, they can be mounted vertically. You will need to securely mount BOTH pairs of wooden slats using the included screws. Prints measuring greater than 50% wider than tall may experience some difficulty when mounting vertically. If you have specific questions, please email us.

+ What are other common uses for STiiCKs?

The beauty of STiiCKs lie in their simplicity. Not only are they are great odd size frame, but they can be used just at the top, framing twice as many prints for the same price. Their strength will allow them to frame things like scarves, flags, linens and fabrics – even canvas. They also work as a frame for any metal surface – refrigerator, office filing cabinets and much more.

+ Will STiiCKs damage my artwork?

Absolutely not. STiiCKs were designed using fine furniture techniques. The magnets are permanently embedded below the surface of the wood, without glue to create an even clamping pressure. Our furniture-grade finishes are museum quality and acid free.

+ When will my STiiCKs ship?

We strive to ship our standard stock items within 1-2 business days. However, STiiCKs are a handmade product and if there is any reason we cannot ship to you within this time frame we will notify you immediatley by email.

+ Do you offer local pickup in Chicago?

Yes. Our wood shop is located at the Diversey/Pulaski intersection in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. Please use coupon code “PickEmUp” at checkout to waive shipment fees. Once purchased, please email us to schedule your pick up.

+ Do you offer custom engraving?

Yes. We have a high powered laser engraver onsight and can engrave all four sides for any length frame we make.

+ Do you offer wholesale pricing?

Yes. We offer wholesale discounts to Distributors and Retailers. Discounts for 501C-3 non-profit organizations are available, please email us for more details.
