How thick are these frames?
We admire your attention to detail. Our metal frames are 1.5" wide and 1.25" thick
I love these float frames but I'm not wild about the torn edges, can I get this product with straight edges for the image?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer these float frames without the deckled edges at this time. That said, we hear you, and we hope to make this option available soon!
How will I know my photo will print well?
Our uploader will block photos that are too small for a particular print size, but it is unable to tell if a photo is blurry, pixelated, or taken in low light. These are all factors that can cause a correctly sized photo to not print as well. A good way to tell if your photo will print well on a larger scale is to check the resolution. We print at 300 dpi and photos at or near this resolution will print best.
If you are still nervous, you can perform what we call the "zoom test" on your image prior to upload. Open up your photo on your computer's photo viewer, and zoom in a little bit. If you are seeing pixelation when you zoom, this will also show up in print.
As a general rule, we recommend printing photos that are taken in natural light. Indoor photos at low light can look fuzzy. Check out our photo editing guide that will help you choose and edit your photos for the best possible prints. Still feeling hesitant to print?

A Note on Cropping
Our Elevation Float Frames are always printed full bleed. Due to the nature of full bleed printing and deckling (hand torn effect on the borders of the print), we recommend keeping all important subjects at least 0.25” from the edge of your print shown on the cropping menu or print preview. We recommend keeping all vital limbs, heads, and text away from these crop lines.
