A frame with depth and style!

The Luna Shadow Frame offers an archivally-sound presentation of works of art on paper, panel, and board. Its 1/2" spacer adds inner depth allowing for artworks to be float mounted or framed edge-to-edge.

Designed by Opus president, David van Berckel, this multi-purpose frame may be used for float mounting artwork and framing artwork edge-to-edge. A removable resin spacer sits between the glass and the back mat, adding internal depth to highlight the light and shadows of your artwork while keeping it a safe distance from the glass without the use of a mat.

The shadow format is ideal for presenting works with raised surfaces or edges that you wish to highlight such as works on rag paper, panel or board, mixed media, and vintage photographs.

How to assemble:

  1. Decide which way the frame will be hung. Remove the two extra D-rings that are at the top and bottom of the frame. Remove EZ clips from the frame back with a flat head screwdriver and set aside.
  2. Remove Coroplast backing and back mat.
  3. Insert your artwork using one of the following options:
    Option 1: Float Mount

    Cut a piece of foamcore or matboard 1" smaller in width and height than the artwork you will be floating. Attach the cut piece to the back mat using acid-free framing tape, then attach the artwork to this raised platform.

    Option 2: Edge-to-edge/ Direct Mount

    Attach your artwork directly to the back mat using acid-free framing tape. A mat can be used by placing the window mat either directly on top of your artwork or between the glass and the spacer. Alternatively, artwork that is the same dimension as the frame will appear to be framed edge-to-edge when the spacer is replaced over the edge of the artwork.

    Option 3: Matted

    A mat can be used by placing the window mat directly on top of your artwork by securing the top of your artwork to the mat with linen tape, leaving the sides and bottom loose as to prevent your picture from buckling. A mat can also be placed between the glass and the spacer by attaching your artwork directly to the back mat using acid-free framing tape.

  4. To reassemble the frame, insert the glass, your selected artwork and component configuration from Options 1 or 2, and the Coroplast backing. Push the hooked end of the EZ clips firmly into the groove on the back edge of the frame to secure all components in place. Hang and enjoy!

I love these frames!

Opus Luna shadow box frames are my go to for framing all of my linocut prints. I love that you can place work right up against the glass, or have it set back in the frame. The simple design allows the artwork to take centre stage. These frames are well constructed, and provide a great alternative to custom framing.

Luna ready-made shadow frame

This is a great ready-made, but please consider making a larger size to be 20x26 ready made (ideally 21x26 for digital paper sizes 18x22 ) I have bought a few18x24 Luna shadow black frame as its the only larger sizes you have that or the 24x24 (which is an odd size to have.) The digital papers come in 17 inches across 17 x 22 is the largest cut paper. And the printers that most folks (for pro; smallest usable size and for amateur; largest home use,) would have. Unless they’re going into a 24in. then must get custom frame anyway. And I would buy a lot of these and I think many many other folks would. There would be high demand for this. It would make our lives easier And we would really appreciate it.
Thank you for considering.
I have been shopping at Opus since 1986.

Astronomical price inflation

I love this frame so... freaking... much. But the price of an 8x10 has gone up 40% in the past six months. It was $32.10 in May 2022. Is now $52.10 in December 2022. What the?! C'mon Opus, throw us a bone, please.
