Industrial Strength Magnets

Gallery STiiCKs showcase the work of Architects, Galleries and Artists all over the world. Ultra-strong magnets are permanently embedded just below the surface of solid North American hardwood, creating an incredibly strong and even clamping pressure across the entire frame.

Embedded magnets create even clamping pressure across the entire frame.

Premium Materials

Every set of Gallery STiiCKs is made from solid hardwood – the majority which comes from our family-owned tree service in the Detroit-metro area of Michigan. Our magnets are made to our specifications and our finishes are 100% acid-free. Custom profiles available upon request.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

+ Are other wood species and finishes available?

Yes. We have the ability to make Gallery STiiCKs from virtually any hardwood you can think of. We can also match any project's color or finish options such as tinting, whitewashing and oxidizing – minimums apply.

+ What are the product dimensions?

Each set of 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. Variable magnets strengths available for specific applications.

+ Can I mount them vertically?

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

+ 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.

+ 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.
