Floating Picture Frames Overview

If you’re looking to truly make an impact with your photography, try a modern floating picture frame to offer the professionalism and style you need to truly enhance your photographs. With our modern float mount option, your images will be raised from the back panel, suspended away from the thick ultra-clear acrylic glass to create a floating effect. This creates the illusion of your picture floating within the frame; your image showcased in the centre while elevated from the backdrop to establish a subtle and stunning drop shadow. Minimalist yet striking, our revolutionary float mount option comes in a variety of mouldings including our original Classic Large moulding, as well as our Appleton and Baroque ranges to give you the ultimate flexibility. Choose your ideal frame moulding to begin your creation, select any template within the online designer, single image or multi-aperture, and finally select “Float Mount” at the checkout.

Multiple Photo Float Mount Frames

To give your photography the ultimate modern edge, we offer our revolutionary float mount option with multiple pictures in one frame Simply choose one of our 3 floating frame ranges, select from any of our templates in the online designer with layouts to include up to 9 images and select “Float Mount” at the checkout. Each image will then be individually raised from the back panel in the layout you have designed to create a stunning multi picture seamless floating effect. This means you can select more than 1 image from any shoot or event to showcase within a frame and truly wow your clients. Whether your have one image floating in a frame or 5, the overall cost is the same to keep things nice and simple for you and your customer.

How To Hang Your Float Mount Frame

Floating Picture Frame Fixings

Every one of our frames, both traditionally mounted or float mounted, arrive with pre-positioned hangers on the reverse ready to be hung straight on your wall. These sturdy hangers are 10mm in width, which allows for valuable wiggle room for adjusting when on the wall and will distribute your frames weight evenly making them safe and durable.

As all of our frames come with hangers already in place, all you need to add are two screws in the wall in your chosen position. We also provide bespoke frame presentation boxes at no extra cost so handing over a beautifully finished product to a client has never been easier.
