12x17 Frame

Picture frames are a must-have item for anyone who loves photography. If you’re interested in framing your pictures, then you may want to consider purchasing a custom frame instead of buying a pre-made frame. This allows you to customize the size and shape of the frame according to your preferences. It also gives you complete freedom to choose the color scheme and material.

12x17 frames are popular options for photographers. They’re large enough to hold a wide range of photos while small enough to fit into smaller spaces such as desktops and bookshelves. Many people like to display their family photographs in 12x17 frames because they’re easy to move around and store. Read our buyers guide to learn more about 12x17 frames and how to choose the best one for you!

If you want to make room for additional prints, you'll need to buy a custom sized frame.

Q: Do I Need To Protect My 12X17 Frame?

A: No, you don't need to protect your 12x17 frame. However, we recommend putting a mat around it to keep dust off the glass.

Q: Should I Hang My 12X17 Frame Vertically Or Horizontally?

A: Hanging your 12x17 frame vertically gives the impression of depth. Horizontally hanging your 12x17 frame makes it appear wider.

Q: Does My 12X17 Frame Need To Be Mounted On Wood?

A: No, mounting your 12x17 frame directly onto a solid surface like plywood or MDF doesn't provide enough support for the weight of the frame.

A: Foam core board is too soft to securely mount your 12x17 frame. Instead, we recommend mounting it directly onto a hard surface like plywood or MDF.

Q: Can I Mount My 12X17 Frame On A Wooden Shelf?

A: Wooden shelves are often hollow. This means they aren't strong enough to safely mount your 12x17 frame.
