Putting together your Flikframe is quick and simple.
Take your Flikframe out of the package, carefully stick the two main body pieces together. Sandwich your picture in between the acrylic and picture backing, slip it under the elastic and it will be held securely in place. Lastly, fold the sides in, and have the magnetic wall plate hold the frame in the propped-up position.
Hanging Flikframe on the wall is even easier, place adhesive (Blu-tack, gel pad, removable tape etc) on the four corners of the magnetic wall plate, and press it firmly on the wall where you want the picture to be.
Then, just snap the Flikframe on the wall and you’re done!
We chose the recycled boxboard as our main material for Flikframe. Not only is this material sturdy and lightweight, it has minimal impact on our environment.
Rare earth magnets are being used to hold Flikframe together, and secure it onto the wall plate. These magnets are often used in toys & packaging.

Flikframes are about 30% lighter than the same size standard MDF picture frames, and comes with more volume & depth. The magnetic wall plate means you get a large contact surface with the wall, making it easier to use your choice of removable adhesives (Blu-tack, Fixate gel pad, removable double-sided tapes...etc).
When flattened, Flikframe is only 8mm, and 25mm in depth when fully assembled.
Your pictures will have a elevated display, well exhibited by a thick and (appears to be) solid frame. When you need to move, Flikframe quickly flattens down, so it is easy to transport them to where you're going, and quickly props back up.
