I have been increasingly inundated with questions about where to find frames for my square art prints. You can currently purchase my square art prints through Lemontree + Co , Rug & Weave , Hacienda and melissamaryjenkins Etsy shop.
Many of the photos of my art prints in my Etsy shop are mock up photos. This means that I carefully curated mock up photos and inserted my artwork into the photos with an editing program.
Finding similar square frames in real life can be a little tricky, so I compliled a list of where to shop for 12 X 12″ and 8 X 8″ frames in Canada. *For all my US friends, your list is currently being compiled*
I print my art prints with a local Canadian company called Posterjack, who also offers professional framing. With a choice of over 50 frame styles and colours, Posterjack provides customers with the option of framing my 12 X 12″ art prints (along with many other sizes). If you wish to have your artwork professionally framed by Posterjack, please message me through Etsy and I will create a custom listing for you.
*Posterjack currently does not have an option for framing an 8 X 8″ print*
I am highlighting a Canadian Etsy company called LivingTaste because it is a simple click away when purchasing art prints in my melissamaryjenkins Etsy shop. They offer a 12 X 12″ frame (without mat) or 7.5 X 7.5 (with mat) for 8×8″ artwork. It is a Metal Photo Picture Frame (Aluminum Shiny Brushed) and it is offered in Grey, Gold and Black.
These 12 X 12″ Gallery Frames from West Elm create a true museum-inspired look. They are available in Black, Wheat, Brass, Grey Wash, Nickel, Walnut and White.
Another option at West Elm is this 12 X 12″ Alder wood frame in a Wheat finish.
This frame from Wayfair is a perfect pairing with my Vintage Still Life Pear painting. And while I am unable to provide a photo of the frame in a square format, I think you will agree, it is a beautiful modern rendition of an antique frame. It is pictured here in Bronze but it is also offered in Aged Gold, Aged Silver, Antique White, and Copper.
Wayfair offers a few other square frames in various colours:
Gold and Black 12 X 12″ Metal Photo Picture Frame, with a 8 X 8″ Mat and Tempered Glass
Grey Wood Frame in 8 X 8″ and 12 X 12″
Black Double Matted Frame 12 X 12″ with 8 X 8″ Mat
White and Black Wood Frame, with a 8 X 8″ Mat and Tempered Glass
Amazon has a decent selection of square frames, but I have chosen to link frames that will be shipped quickly and without an import fees deposit.
This gold frame would add a sleek modern edge to my art prints and it is also offered in grey.

White Double Frame, MATTED to 5 X 5″ , x 8″
