In the world of art, photography and picture framing, the different variations of frames and what they are used for can get a bit confusing. To the untrained eye. picture frames can all look the same and seemingly be interchangeable. In reality, that is not the case. Based on the material, style and size, each picture frame is chosen for a different reason. Due to this, a common question we often encounter is; what exactly is a canvas floater picture frame?
Floater Frames are used for works of art that are painted or printed on a canvas. This style of frame is particularly popular among photographers and painters. A canvas floater picture frame provides extra space around the canvas and can make it seem like the artwork is floating, hence the name. The floater frame provides a very safe space for the picture housed inside it and often compliments the artwork by adding a three-dimensional feel.
Floater Frames are in high demand among painters and photographers who prefer canvas prints. Floating frames provide extra space around your canvas which not only adds additional protection to your art, but also compliments your work by adding a three-dimensional feel.

I have a small painting on 3/4 ” thick masonite. I want to use a “floater frame” but I see you say it is for stretched canvas pieces. will it work for my painting on masonite? the painting is 8 3/4″ x 12″ what should be my ordering critieria if it does work?
The Floater Frame is not only for canvas pieces, they just look especially divine in these frames. Your painting on masonite will fit just fine in a floater frame, you would want to work with a 9×12 frame.
What does “shell only” mean & how does one sit the canvas in the floater frame?
