I have a very large mirror will a MirrorChic frame fit?
Yes, every order is custom cut to the specifications you require. We consider any size frame up to 90 inches in length as a standard size. Mirrors exceeding 90 inches in length on either side may require splicing the frame to cover the full length. We suggest contacting our customer support to discuss your large frame requirements. Additional charges on large frames for splicing & shipping will apply.
What is splicing?
Splicing is required for frames over 90 inches in length. We splice two pieces together to reach the total length needed. Sometimes splicing a frame may be required to reduce shipping cost since shipping a frame over 100 inches in length can be more expensive than the cost of the frame itself.
