GoFrame the simple way to frame a canvas

“Now anyone can frame and install a canvas with no tools in minutes. It’s as easy as one, two, three.”

Lightweight and durable, Goframes are easy to handle and hang. The unique patent pending design allows anyone to easily slide a canvas into the frame without the use of fasteners or nails.
