Dick Blick-  This online art store is basically a maker's dream. It's actually where I buy most of my carving blocks and other printmaking supplies, and I buy art supplies for my kids there as well. They have lots of options for frames, but I like their Blick Wood Gallery Frames.

Craig Frames- The USA made frame manufacturer I've used for many years sadly closed its doors this spring. However, I was pleased to see them purchased by another USA based producer, Michigan based Craig Frames. I've only begun to work with Craig Frames, but my experience so far has been highly satisfactory.  You can get just about any size frame from them, which is great if I'm trying to get something custom. If you're looking for a 13x19 size, a 12x16 size, or a 16x24 size in particular, this website will give you tons of different style options. I'll keep y'all posted as I order samples and discover what my favorite frames are from these folks.

Frame Destination-  This company is where I go when I want to upgrade my glazing.  If you hang your prints in direct sunlight, they could fade over time.  You can avoid this by buying UV resistant glazing.  These upgraded glazings are very expensive, but worth it in the long run if you are looking to protect your prints from the sun.  I like this product, which protects prints from both UV damage and has a "no glare" feature. I hope this information is helpful to you as you choose frames, I hope it helps you protect your prints for years to come!
