• Two machines or tools are required to properly work with Snap Frames Lengths at your shop or manufacturing facility. Ideally a double mitered saw and belt sander will facilitate the making of snap frames. Otherwise a mitered saw and hand sander will work, but be more time consuming.


• When miter sawing snap frames, space between the two frame parts will be required to assure the frame will assemble cleanly and work properly. The overall thickness created by a backing, poster or sign board and/or acrylic overlay going into the snap frame will give you the space needed for your signage insert. The space filler can be wood, plastic or other substrate. The edges of the four mitered frame corners will need to be belt sanded slightly so that the frame snaps open completely.

• It is strongly suggested you miter and assemble a small snap frame first before completing your display frame project. if ordering snap frame lengths for the first time. you may want to order a small sample frame for reference.
