Styling It Right!
If you’ve completed step 1, you now know the size and thickness of the artwork you want framed, as well as the width of the frame molding that appeals to you. The next step is to find a frame profile that best meets your sense of style or that of your target audience. Our standard solid koa frames have rabbets or pockets that are just slightly over 1/2″ deep, approximately 9/16″. That’s enough depth to insert most standard flat print artworks, which would include a 1/8″ thick piece of glazing (glass or plexiglass), a mat board, photograph or art paper, and 1/4″ backer. If you need deeper pockets choose from our taller moldings, or email us with your specifications and let us fashion a frame just for you.

Hoohie’s BOXED frame profiles are ideal for that squared, modern, industrial, clean-no-nonsense look.

Hoohie’s HALF-RADIUS profiles are a blend of the modern and contemporary. They provide clean, professional look. On wider-bodied frames the flat surface is ideal for engraving or applying a plaque.
