    I'm trying to get a photo professionally framed and the guy who gave me the estimate asked me if I wanted the image to be block framed or scoop framed. Can anyone tell me the difference between the two?

    block frame is full side pieces...scoop is tapered inward

    like if you were to cross section a piece of block frame the end would be square or rectangular while a scoop frame piece would be more triangular

    reverse scoop would be tapered toward the outside
