Wiring: Flat Art must have a hanging wire nearly the full width of the work and securely attached
to the artwork frame on the vertical side pieces of the frame approximately 1/3 from the top of
the artwork. Coated picture wire is best. If the artwork is heavy, use D-rings to secure the wire to
the artwork frame (eye hooks are OK only for small, lightweight pieces). Be sure the wire on the
back of the artwork is tight enough to hide the wire when the artwork is hung. If you have a
rectangular metal mounting frame on the back (like many metal prints), the rectangular frame
will serve as the attached wire since it stretches across the back of the entire piece.
