Enjoy Eco-Friendly Framing


We are artists. We consistently reach beyond our consumerist natures and see the effects of our actions and habits. We feel connected to the environment. We have innate desires to preserve and protect the world around us, which gives us such inspiration.

Wall Gallery Framing


To support this effort of conservationism, we carry a number of eco-friendly frames in collections like Basic, Infinity, and EcoCare and we participate in eco-friendly programs and business practices.

Green frames

Eco-friendly FramingWe have found that, though many of our customers desire to buy more environmentally friendly products, many are unaware that these frames are available to them. We keep our standards high, considering each piece of the frame — from wood to glue to finish — before labeling it eco-friendly. Of the frames we offer, there are two main types of eco-friendly frames: wood and aluminum.

For a wood frame to be labeled eco-friendly, it must

  • be manufactured out of solid wood,
  • be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC),
  • have a non-toxic finish, and
  • have non-toxic gessos.

While not often thought about, aluminum frames are the most eco-friendly frames you can buy! Aluminum frames are

  • 100% recyclable,
  • the number-one most environmentally conscious mouldings you can choose, and
  • 100% archival.

Maintaining our commitment to environmentally conscious initiatives, we aim to stay local. 80% of all our frames are made in the United States. Products made in America are held to higher environmental standards in manufacturing than in other parts of the world.

Green process

To be truly eco-conscious, the process has to match the hardware. That is why we challenge the industry standards. Our suppliers are almost exclusively American, and our production and process are focused on the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Certified Carbon Neutral Shipment
Unique in our industry, we participate in the UPS CarbonNeutral Fund. Every package we ship is carbon neutral.

From our door to your wall, we are committed to environmentally conscious framing.
