Despite being a non-member item and having no members lock in creation, they could originally only be created by Members. However, all Jammers were granted the ability to make them during the 2016 and 2017 Jamaalidays.

Jammers cannot gift, trade, or recycle their Masterpiece until it has been reviewed and approved by AJHQ.
Once approved, the Jammer will receive a Jam-A-Gram saying that their Masterpiece has been approved and is now available to gift, recycle, and trade.
Unlike the close-up views, the items themselves do not include a name-tag for the artist's name.
The nametag in the close-up view for other Jammers' Masterpieces can be clicked to open the Jammers' Player Cards.
As of August 4, 2016, Jammers can put their own Masterpieces on their Jammer Wall.
When released, the No Frame option was titled as a Print Frame but was later changed.
Jammers cannot edit or load another Jammer's .ajart file, which can be used to save a Masterpiece in progress.
Initially, it was possible to upload a picture and use that for a masterpiece if the file's extension was overwritten to .ajart, but that is no longer available; thus, it says, "This masterpiece cannot be loaded." or a different pop-up message.
There is a technical problem that sometimes causes the masterpiece to never be reviewed, remaining in a player's inventory perpetually.
It was originally designed for use in land dens only, but that changed after an update on April 27, 2017.
Sometimes when attempting to purchase a masterpiece, a message will pop up saying that the purchase could not be made and to try again later. This is most likely because the user's den inventory is full.
On December 6th and 14th of 2017 and December 6th, 14th, and 20th of 2018 during the Jamaalidays, all Jammers were given Masterpiece Tokens. These tokens allow the user to create a masterpiece without the use of diamonds. Additionally, it also allows non-members to create masterpieces.
When purchasing a Masterpiece, sometimes a pop up message reading, "Oops! Something has gone wrong and this Masterpiece wasn't submitted. Please try again." will pop up. This message appears directly after spending your Diamonds/Token, and presumably results in the Masterpiece never being reviewed, hence remaining in your inventory.
There is a glitch with the silver frame. It would cause the masterpiece to turn smaller, with the silver frame bigger than the masterpiece. This would cause some of the top of the masterpiece to not be shown.
There is a glitch with Cosmo's frame that can cause the owner to be unable to reach the arrow to switch the masterpiece's direction, meaning that the masterpiece may only be able to fit on a right wall.
If an .ajart file of a masterpiece that has already been approved is submitted, the masterpiece will be approved instantly. However, the approval Jam-A-Gram will not be sent until the player logs in again.
