How To Hang Your Art

How to Hang Your Art with Framebridge

Now that you have your piece, what do you do with it? Unless you’re styling a chic ledge gallery wall, you probably want to get it up on the wall. While driving nails into the drywall can sound intimidating, we’re here to help every step of the way.

Step 1: Decide where you'd like to hang your piece. Need some inspiration? Check out this post. In general, we suggest hanging your art so that the vertical center (the middle of the frame) is 57" above the floor. 

Step 2: Gather your supplies. You will need a hammer, a level (or a friend with good eyes), a pencil, and a tape measure or ruler.

Step 3: We include nails and hanging hardware with every frame. Grab the nail that we sent with your order.

Step 4: Time to hang. Take a look at the back of your piece to determine what hanging hardware you have. Depending on the size of your frame your piece will come with different hardware for optimal support. Click on the type of hanging hardware you’re working with for specialized tips on how to hang each piece.

  • Sawtooth Hanger: If you order a small frame (we're looking at you, Instagram Mini), you'll get a sawtooth hanger.
  • Hanging Wire: Medium art (up to 16" x 20") and most other frames come with a hanging wire for your convenience.
  • Corner Brackets: Ordering large art (up to 24" x 36")? You'll get corner brackets, which make hanging large works incredibly simple!

Any questions? We're here to help. Just email and one of our designers will guide you through it.
