How to Hang Your Framed Art

Our frames come with two brackets to ensure the most sturdy hold. Unlike hanging framed pieces with wire backings, these brackets prevent the frame from shifting and hanging askew once they are secured to the wall. Unless requested, our frames do not come with any screws or other materials needed to hang the framed art. Click here to read more about our framed art.

What's in the Box?

All framed art pieces are shipped in a flat box. The framed piece and two brackets are shipped with the frame. One bracket will be attached to the frame using three screws and an additional bracket will be attached lower on the frame using tape. The additional bracket that is taped to the frame is what you will screw into the wall. For larger framed art, two brackets will be attached to the back of your piece and two to hang your framed art will be taped to the back.

Needed to Hang Framed Art

1.   wall space
2.   framed art
3.   three screws
4.   screw driver
5.   level
6.   stud finder (optional)

Step One - Find a spot

Find a spot in the room to hang the art. You want to choose an area on the wall where the piece will fit. If the piece is too big for the area in which it is placed, it will overpower the room. If the framed art is too small for the space, it will go unnoticed.

You can use a stud finder to find a spot in the wall that will better support the framed piece. Stud finders are used to find the studs inside of the walls and add more support for the screw and frame when you drill into the wall.


Step Two - Remove the extra bracket

Carefully take off the extra bracket that is taped on the back of the frame. This is the bracket that will need to be screwed to the wall.

Step Three - Put the bracket against the wall

Hold it up against the wall in the desired spot. Make sure that the elevated part is facing up and away from the wall. The three holes should be down and flush against the wall.

Step Four - Make it even

Hold up the level on top of the bracket, make sure it is flat against the bracket for the best results. The level should also be flush against the wall. Move the bracket against the wall until the level shows that the bracket is even.

Step Five - Mark in the holes

Mark inside of the first hole of the bracket. You can use a pencil, pen or any other writing utensil (once the screws are in, you will no longer be able to see the marks). Do the same for the second and third holes on the bracket.

Step Six - Line the first hole up

Line the first screw up with the first hole. Once you have the screw in place in the hole of the bracket, you can let go of the bracket and let it hang.

Step Seven - Fasten the screw

Using the screw driver, fasten the first screw into the wall. For best results, do not fasten the screws all the way in until they are all in place.

Step Nine - Hang the framed art

The bracket that is attached to the frame should now fit on top of the bracket that is screwed into the wall. Once the bracket is completely secured to the wall, take the frame and hold it so the back is facing the wall. Move the frame towards the wall and place the bracket on the back of the frame frame onto the bracket you secured on the wall.
