STiiCKs® - Magnetic Poster Frames
STiiCKs® - Magnetic Poster Frames
STiiCKs® work like a clamp, using real wood and strong magnets to frame art. This solid wood framing alternative is perfect for odd size prints, posters, photos, linen, fabric – even canvas. Install using screws, string or even 3M Poster Strips (not included).
Need a custom size? – We make custom framing orders up to 72" wide.
STiiCKs work like a clamp
Each set of STiiCKs comes with 4 strips of solid wood embedded with really strong magnets just below the surface. This creates an even clamping pressure across the entire frame. STiiCKs are offered in 5 standard sizes and 4 finishes, for custom framing up to 72” wide, please see our Gallery STiiCKs.
What's in the Box
Each set of STiiCKs includes everything you need to frame and mount your artwork. One kit includes; 4 strips of solid hardwood, four screws, two wall anchors and installation instructions. (3M Poster Strips can be used to mount STiiCKs, but are not included.)
Use Screws or String
Whether you choose to mount your frame using screws or just a simple string, our frames are easy to install. If by string, simply tie the provided cord into a knot at both ends, place in the slot and sandwich your artwork on top. If using screws, simply mount one of the predrilled slats level on the wall, then add your artwork and the rest of the frame.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ 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?
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.
+ Do you make custom sizes?
Yes. STiiCKs comes in 5 standard sizes in 4 finishes, ideal for framing artwork from 8”x10” (A4 prints) through 24” x 36” (A1 prints). Custom sizes are made to order in our Chicago, USA wood shop in sizes up to 72” wide.
+ 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.
+ 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.
