Free Pixelhobby Patterns



After all of the baseplates of the design are completed, the full design is assembled and ready to be framed. The baseplates have dovetail connectors which connect each baseplate together. For some kit sizes, such as a 4 baseplate design which is 8 x 10 inches when completed, there are ready made frames at that size so if you do not want a mat in the frame you can just connect the baseplates and place inside the frame.

You will find ready made frames in most stores for the kits in 4 Baseplates, 16 Baseplates and 30 Baseplates sizes. We also offer specially made 1 Baseplate Pixelhobby frames on our website.

For some pixelhobby sizes there will not be ready made frames available so you can order custom frames from a framing company to suit the sizes you need. For Australian customers we highly recommend for their fast and efficient service and quality Australian made frames. They have a great online tool where you can take your pixelhobby image and see how it looks with different frames before you buy. You can either buy the custom frames at the exact size of the finished design or buy larger frames and add custom size matting inside the frames. 

If you would like to use a coloured mat as well inside your frame as a border for your picture, we have found the best way is to first purchase the frame and mat at the correct sizes, then with a pencil draw on the backboard just inside the mat so you know where your pixelhobby will go, then place a good amount of craft glue on the backboard inside the pencil marked framed area and place your baseplates that have been connected onto the glued area and press down firmly, lay the mat and frame over it to make sure it fits right before it dries. Once we confirm it fits properly we leave the Pixelhobby to dry on the backboard and place something with a little weight on the baseplates to make sure they stay flat and do not buckle while they dry. The once dry insert in the mat and frame. We suggest to not frame using glass as well as it is too bulky to fit in the frame, pixels can be dusted or wiped with a slightly damp cloth to clean. 

 We have framed many designs from small to large ourselves so if you have any queries or problems please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.
