Framed vs. Unframed

I would be interested to know how members find framed vs. unframed canvas board compare for sales.1. Does one seem more popular with purchasers? Thanks in advance for any input.

Unframed. Easier to pack/ship, and people tend to want to select their own kinds of frames.

Thank you, Theresa - very helpful thoughts.

Agree with Theresa. Plus someone might like the painting but not the frame and then don’t buy. Plus it puts the cost up overall as you have to factor the frame into the price, or the reserve if applicable. Plus, if you are shipping into the USA from elsewhere, the U.K. in my case, it puts the shipping cost up AND means it might be grounded by US customs so they can check there isn’t something else in the frame apart from a painting (:flushed:).
