Custom Wedge Service

For perfect assembly, we route corners to accommodate an innovative plastic wedge insert designed to create a perfectly joined corner. You will receive one or two inserts for each corner with your chop. This service is available for most moulding profiles. The fee is $3.00/frame.

Joined Frames

We require at least 24 hours turn around for any frame order.

• Should freight customers desire to purchase a frame, we recommend the frame not exceed 24” X 30”. Multiple frame orders or any frame greater than these dimensions should be palletized.

• We at Monarch continually strive to locate the cheapest freight charges to pass on to our customers. We offer FedEx and truck shipping (Beaver Express).
• Please be aware that special freight charges apply to oversized packages. When a package’ height and girth exceed 84”, it is considered oversized. If deemed oversized, its weight will be rated at 30 lbs or its actual weight, whichever is greater.
• If a package exceeds 96” in length, 130 total inches, or over 150 lbs, we must use another freight company other than FedEx.
