You will find ready made frames in most
stores for the kits in 4 Baseplates, 16 Baseplates and 30 Baseplates
sizes. We will also be offering specially made 1 Baseplate Pixelhobby
frames on the website shortly.
For all other sizes if you are wanting to
frame your designs in the correct sizes you will need custom size
frames, there are many places which offer this service. For Australian
customers we highly recommend
www.frameshop.com.au for their fast and efficient service
and quality Australian made frames. They have a great online tool where
you can take your pixelhobby image and see how it looks with different
frames before you buy. You can either buy the custom frames at the exact
size of the finished design or buy larger frames and add custom size
matting inside the frames.
We have found the best way to frame your
pixelhobby designs is to first measure the design to fit onto the
backboard of a frame, or take the glass out of the frame and draw around
the opening with a pencil on the backboard, then you can see where the
design needs to fit on the backboard. Paint or use paper towel to spread
glue on the backboard, then place the completed plates to the backboard
of the frame, pushing the plates together firmly as it dries.
We recommend framing designs without glass
as it can be too thick with both the baseplates and glass for the frame
backboard to fit in correctly and it will also show off your design
better without glass. We have framed many designs from small to large
ourselves so if you have any queries or problems please do not hesitate
to contact us for advice.
