If you have a question about picture framing...

Fit an item into an Aluminium picture frame

step-1

Lay your frame face down onto a clean, flat surface. You will notice there are little springs inside the back edge of the frame and corner plates, We will remove these on the next step

step-2

2
Using a flat head screwdriver, very carefully remove the springs from inside of the frame there is an indentation on each side of the spring to make removal with a screwdriver easy. We suggest you put your hand over the spring before it is released in case it springs out !

Repeat the process of removing the springs until all springs have been removed and then position the frame in the orientation of the item to be put inside.

If you look at the corner of the frame section, you can see a little Metal corner plate with a screw though the middle.

You can now remove the protective cover on the glazing, please remember the glazing always has two protective covers on and these need to be removed from both sides, it is vacuum packed on and can sometimes be tricky to see; if you dig your nail into the corner it will be revealed.

With the protective covers removed from the Plexiglas, place the item you are framing in between the MDF backing and the Plexiglas, be careful to keep at least the inside of the Plexiglas nice and clean, as you can always clean the outside afterwards.
