Ready to Hang

Artworks need to be ready to hang in a professional manner.

● All glazed framed art must use plexiglass. Use eyehooks (or D rings) and woven picture framing wire for hanging.
● Use woven picture hanging wire only; no single strand wires. No sawtooth hangers. No glass whatsoever.
● Works that don’t require a frame, such as gallery wrapped paintings, will come with a wire on the back, or a ‘D’ ring larger than 3/8″. Other media that are unsuitable for framing, such as wall hangings, will come ready to hang in a manner that does not require extra hardware and can be hung with a rod hanging system.
