What Frame Should I Get?Updated 9 months ago

Framing Options

***Unfortunately, we don't have a framing service for Foil and Glow in The dark New Zealand or Australian orders. The UK lab is the only one of our print labs with the technology to print foils and Glow In The Dark, and posting a framed print to Australia would cost way too much. Really sorry we can't accommodate you.

We provide a framing service for all print types to all other territories we ship to.

You will have the option to add a frame when ordering the star map.

If you prefer to contact us to add a frame after you have placed the order, email us at [email protected] with the order number immediately after you have placed the order, with the request to add a frame. We will then send you a PayPal payment request to pay for the framing service. Once payment is complete and you send us a screenshot of the proof of payment, we will add the frame to the order so that you will receive a framed print.


If you prefer to frame it yourself here's what you need to know:

In the USA, Canada, and Mexico:

We offer these sizes: 12x12 inches, 12x16 inches, 16x16 inches, 18 x 24 inches or 24x32 inches; we also offer canvas options in the same sizes.

The print is on museum-grade, art matte, acid-free paper and printed using archival ink. The print is designed to fit a frame of its size, However, if you want to go for a mat surround go for a frame 4 inches larger all around with a 2-inch mat.

Amazon have endless choices and a lot of people recommend Target, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. If you're looking for something special then your local framing store should be able to help.
