You can customise your float frame size online for a perfect fit by simply telling us the dimensions of your canvas. Whether your canvas is small, oversize or somewhere in between, we can deliver it to your door.

You can also create your own framed canvas art by printing photos onto canvas. We'll deliver your framed canvas art ready to hang.

An introduction to shadow gaps

What is a shadow gap?

Shadow gaps are a subtle, yet transformative feature for your canvas frame. They create an optical illusion that the canvas is floating and by introducing a narrow space between the canvas itself and the internet edge of the frame.

The gap ensures that the canvas artwork remains fully visible, unobstructed by the frame, so you don't cover up any important parts of your picture (like an artists signature).


How does it affect the look of my canvas?

Shadow gaps help to draw people's attention to the canvas and add to its perceived value by accentuating the stretched canvases depth. They help to enhance the artwork without overpowering it, allowing the canvas to take center stage. This minimalist approach complements the artwork and can seamlessly integrate into a variety of decor styles, from contemporary to traditional.


How do I order a float frame with a shadow gap?

To order a float frame with a shadow gap, simply provide the dimensions of your canvas. We'll automatically add a 5mm allowance around each edge to create the gap. This process guarantees a perfect fit and the desired floating effect, enhancing the visual appeal of your piece with a sophisticated and contemporary look.

Tray frames vs. traditional frames: Which is best for canvas?

Made to measure float frames, designed to accommodate any size stretched canvas, typically are better suited than traditional frames in terms of both style and functionality. Benefits of choosing tray frames include:

  • Their narrow profiles offer a more gallery-like aesthetic than a conventional frame. Helping to provide a sleek, modern look that highlights the artwork without the distraction of a bulky frame
  • The edges of your canvas remain visible and the entire surface of your artwork on display
  • They provide better support for your canvas and ensure a secure and proper fit
  • Combined with a shadow gap effect the canvas picture looks like it's floating in the middle of your frame
  • Floating your canvas looks more professional and can enhance the perceived value
  • Stretched canvases with a depth exceeding 2cm will benefit from a flush finish instead of a more prominent, pronounced look

We would recommend choosing a traditional picture frame for a more classic or decorative look, or if the artwork's setting demands a more ornate presentation.
