The smaller ones come with a stand for a tabletop (8x10 and I think 11x14, too), but with these being so big they're only wall mountable and don't come with a stand.

Question

Is the black backing black on both sides?

I want to display 8 x 10 inch photos in the frame, and I would like to have a black border around them. If I used double-stick tape to secure the photos to the backing, what color will the border around the photos be? Would it look nice, or does the backing of the frame look trashy when exposed from the font?

Thanks!

There is no backing. These frames are like poster frames. The picture or photo needs to fill the entire frame.
answered 2 years, 7 months ago
By
RavenDog08
answer 7
This particular frame is designed for a 11 x 14 photo. If you want to frame a smaller (8 x 10) photo in this frame, you will need a mat that fits inside the frame with an 8 x 10 opening (otherwise the backing of the frame will show from the front and will not look nice). P.S. Walmart also has some beautiful frames with mats specifically made for 8 x 10 photos.
