Plaque Mounting: A Look into Wholesale Plaques

Did you know that we offer wood mounting / plaquing services at Frame USA and Posterservice? Check out our video to see the process.

Recently, we’ve had a lot of great plaque customers place orders for a variety of reasons. Some are artists, looking for an affordable way to distribute their work en masse. Some are large companies, trying to find unique ways to spend their advertising budget. Some are graduates who want their diplomas preserved. Whatever the reason, plaque mounting is here to stay as one of our most recommended options for long-term image preservation (unless, of course, your print has great value or needs a more archival touch. In this case, framing is your best bet).

While we will always stand behind picture frames and their ability to preserve an image (particularly when the frame compliments the art so well), there is something to be said about wood-mounted plaques. A plaqued image shows the art in its entirety, without the distraction of an outside border. Also, since the print is laminated flat against the wood, there is virtually no chance that the inside image will warp or crease over time, which may happen in a frame if not sized correctly.

To learn more about wholesale plaques and the plaque mounting process, check out the video below!

Posterservice “Beer” Poster on A&E’s “Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job”!

We had the privelege to show off our very own “Beer” poster on A&E’s Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job!

For those who have never seen the show, the couple Brandi and Jarrod are originally from the show Storage Wars on A&E. This couple’s constant tension and interesting dynamic has created an interest in the couple’s day to day life, resulting in their own reality show called Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job. It was only several weeks ago that we received an email from the A&E studios asking if they could show our very own image on their next episode. We were more than happy to oblige!

Here is the image to look out for:

Raving Fans and Customer Comments

We take customer feedback very seriously here at Frame USA, whether that involves us replacing a faulty order, thanking a customer for their kind words about our services, or… drawing unicorns on a box?

That’s right–one of our more eccentric customers frequently asks for any number of random drawings on their packages, and our team has really had fun with this in the past (we can recall doodles of a dancing penguin and a mummy/pirate duo playing jump-rope).

This time, we had our customer service representative (and talented illustrator) Kelley Kombrinck create the box art for our customer. Needless to say, they were very impressed!

48% Off Closeout Frames for 48 Hours Only!

Do you love great savings on picture frames?  We do too!  So head on over to our sister site, FrameCloseouts.com!  We are offering 48% off all closeout frames for 48 hours only.

48_48sale

Our closeout picture frames are usually overstock items from our main catalog line.  While you can choose the size and color in most cases, the style is unknown and that is how we are able to offer such incredible savings on these frames.  We will take requests for matching items, but since they are overstock, the order will be filled based on what is available.

All closeout frames will come complete, just may come with slight variations from our normal picture frame fills.  This means a frame could have glass or styrene (plexi-glass), an easel or flat backing, and may or may not have a mat.

Don’t miss out – shop today at FrameCloseouts.com with coupon code 4848 before this amazing deal on picture frames ends at midnight EST on 8/21!

Every Little Bit Counts!

Here at Frame USA, we are extremely passionate about charity.  This is why we give $0.75/online order placed to our Monthly Charity.  We also support a local Charity through our Retail Store in Cincinnati, OH each month.

On top of our specified monthly Charities, different organizations always reach out to us asking for help.  Sometimes we can help, sometimes we can’t, but when we can it is great!

Two months ago, Second Chance Pet Adoptions in North Carolina reached out to us.  They were looking for a way to display gift certificates that had been donated for their Annual Auction for the Animals.  While our charity had already been set for the month, we jumped in to help with the donation and asked Second Chance Pet Adoptions to cover the freight.  They agreed and we got the frames out immediately for them!  A few weeks later, they contacted us letting us know they received more gift certificates for their event than expected and needed more frames.

This past weekend, we received an email from Bonnie Millis, the Auction Chair of the Event stating:

“Thank you so much for your generous donation of frames, and for giving us the wholesale pricing on the additional frames we needed.  Our Gift Certificates were displayed very professionally, and I think added to the elegance of the evening.”

2nd chance

We were happy to help Bonnie, and so glad your event was a success!  We look forward to working with Second Chance Pet Adoptions in the future, and helping out in as many other areas as we can!  For more information on this organization, please visit: http://www.secondchancenc.org/.

Custom Framing and Displays at Wholesale Prices

When you need a custom frame job, we take it seriously — down to the very last detail.

Our customers at City Gear have used our products for quite a few of their stores. The urban apparel store recently requested a large custom order for frames that would be able to “comfortably” fit some of their jerseys and t-shirt brands. You can also see our frames in use on the upper walls, which were poster frames also bought from us!

The recent custom order was particularly interesting, however. Our team was tasked with finding an affordable option to frame their items (in this case, our In-Depth series), add custom D-ring attachments and provide special instructions on how to build exactly what they wanted in their stores. The result was so great, they shared their experience (and photographs) with us.

Digital Art Meets Digital Framing

In a recent New York Times piece, a new method of artistic gallery display was announced: a digital canvas.

capture

Not to be confused with the digital picture frame, a digital canvas seems to be the new way to display artwork for gallery presentation when displaying artwork created digitally. This also works very well for photography!

Capture2

Will it ever replace the picture frame in the world of art galleries? We say “of course not!” But it is certainly a great new way to show off your digital art, and could potentially pair beautifully with something like our Shadow Boxes or In-Depth frames. You can find out more on Electric Object’s website.

4 Great DIY Back to School Ideas, Tips and Products

Are you ready for back to school season? We scoured Pinterest for ways to save you time and money when sending your kids back to learn.

Whatever your feelings are about back to school season, the time is now upon us to begin thinking of ways to save before the kids head back. Whether you’re sending them off to Elementary, Middle, High School or College, the costs can add up to be more than you would expect. Most of the following are some ideas shared by The 36th Avenue which we found via Pinterest – be sure to check out their article on the subject!

1. Labels + Individually Bagged School Supplies

A crafty idea we found from Pinterest was individually bagged and labeled school supplies. Obviously over the long term, these labeled baggies will become less useful, but the idea behing them lies in organization and making sure that your student has all the supplies they need for their first day. From this article, we see that there are printable labels that make this process even easier! Simply keep a checklist onhand, label and bag the supplies, and run through the checklist. After that, everything can be tossed in the backback and your young one is ready to go!  DIY crafts


 

2. Educational / College Humor Posters

Whether you’re looking for some great humor or art posters for your student to take to college or educational posters for the classroom, Posterservice.com has a great selection for all different products at an unbeatable price. Imagery helps greatly in the educational process, and we have it all – posters on phonics, the solar system, periodic table, famous US history and geography. On the other side, we have artistic representations of all of the above. If you need accuracy, check out the educational section; and if you seek more of the art/humor section, be sure to check those categories as well!

3. Framed Magnetic Calendar

diy picture frame

First and foremost, a calendar is always useful for planning out all those events at your child’s school. By making a creative, magnetic whiteboard calendar like we’ve shown here, you can be assured that all reminders and important forms remain in the same location. Even better if, as pictured, your magnets use actual numbers to keep track of the dates. This could make for a big time commitment up front, but think of all the time and stress you’ll save with everything organized in one place!


 

4. Certificate and Diploma Frames

Of course, at the end of all that schooling, it’s time to show off that diploma or degree! You can find all sorts of diploma and certificate frames at this link. All of these can be customized to your heart’s content as well!

 

What sorts of back to school items are you looking out for this year?

Frame USA Retail Store’s Annual Tent Sale Returns!

Starting August 1st, tent sale shoppers can save 25%-50% off all picture frames and posters under the tent!

For Cincinnati locals, you’ll be happy to know that it’s that time again! Frame USA is having its annual tent sale. Our early August tent sale has always been about saving hundreds in art, wall decor and framing. Join us as our progressive approach to savings expands from 25%, 35% and all the way to 50% by Sunday!

Now, while we are also the type to hold off to get the best possible savings, waiting until Sunday does limit the number of frames available. At these prices, everyhing sells fast!

Here are some tips from us on how to get the most out of our great prices from the tent sale:

1. Stop by early, even if you don’t intend to buy.

An early start on Friday means there are more chances to find exactly what you’re looking for.

2. Know when to buy, and when to wait and save.

If you are looking for something common (like a brown 8×10 frame), you shouldn’t find too much issue finding what you need. If you’re looking for a specific type of frame, or to find an odd-sized custom frome that made it into closeouts, you may want to hurry by. We also have plenty of great posters to put in those frames as well.

3. Think ahead when attending the sale: birthdays, holidays, graduation, dorm rooms, etc.

Sales like this don’t happen very often, and even our employees are thrilled to stock up on items for their family and friend’s gifts. If you have any significant events in the upcoming year that need a frame, you can save some serious cash at our tent sale.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Our staff is knowledgeable and ready to help answer any and all questions about art and framing. Stop by and join in on the fun!
