Q: What do you mean by "ready to hang?"
A: The item should have hangers to allow us to hang it on the wall, needing only a nail to do so. Claw hangers are not acceptable. Please attach D or O rings and picture hanging wire. It does not need to be framed (gallery wrap is fine for canvas), but it does need to be completely ready to hang. For example:

Note the sturdy wire and D rings.

Wrong way to prepare your work for hanging













Claw hangers are not allowed. If you purchased a frame that came with claw hangers, please add your own hanging hardware.
Wrong Another wrong method of hanging
While the hangers themselves are fine, the ribbon is not, and the hangers should be fastened to a sturdy part of the frame, such as the wood, not cardboard backing.
 Another wrong hanger
Note the old, weak wire. The rings are also positioned too low.
