Resources for Framing Panels

All Ampersand standard size panels generally fit into pre-made frames. If you are creating a piece of art specifically for a frame, be sure to measure carefully, because frame sizes and rabbet depths may vary.

Download this spec sheet that has a complete listing of profile depths for the entire product line. Framing can enhance the overall presentation of your work in creative ways. Sectional, plein-air, floater, canvas frames, all are viable framing options for panels. Cradled panels, of course, can be hung directly on the wall and need no additional framing.
