Standard snap frames with square corners

Most standard snap frames are silver frames with mitred corners, meaning the frame surrounds are cut at a 45° angle, to form a 90° square corner. In addition to mitre corner snap frames we have frames where the sharpness of the corner is reduced by the addition of thoughtfully designed tipped corners - called Opti frames.

There are several frame profiles and each has a slightly different look. The 1" / 25 mm wide gently curved profile is most popular for small to medium size frames.Read more...
