Meet Our New Director of Business Development

growth

It was my Mother-in-Law that started it all! She decided to move away from Michigan over 8 years ago, and began planting a seed in my head that I would do well in Cincinnati. She kept telling me, “I really think you should move dear”. I told her, I’m good here in Michigan. One day, it hit me like a ton of bricks! The only word that came to mind was: POTENTIAL!!!

The mere fact that I had the POTENTIAL to land an amazing job, the POTENTIAL to move my family into a larger environment, the POTENTIAL to develop new relationships and build stronger roots for my family. This desire became the fuel and passion for the next phase of my life. So, I began my job search for future employment in Cincinnati, OH and I stumbled across a POTENTIAL opportunity! The Director of Business Development position became open at Frame USA and I knew I’d be a great fit for the company. This company reminded me of home. Hard working people with a passion to serve others – making quality American made products! The CEO, Dan Regenold, had a vision to take a simple concept for selling posters and making picture frames – consequently turning it into a successful business model that has an international client base!

The future is so bright. The world is ever-changing and the methodologies for new business practices evolve over time. How do we remain current and present in the marketplace? How do we capitalize on new possibilities and opportunities? We must seize the moments that present themselves before us and build upon it. Building sometimes looks MESSY! Dust, dirt, rubbish, new materials, and loud noises are all associated with building something. Things scattered over the floors, design plans and blueprints serve as the guiding light in a chaotic environment. When we are building something, you need to surround yourself with people that can help you finish the job. You need people with expertise to get certain jobs done! You CANNOT do it alone! I encourage you to dig deep, find your bearings and build! It’s a new world out here – be sure to make your mark! Let’s Build shall we?

Metal Picture Frames

Our Metal I and Metal II Picture Frames are known for their superior quality and affordability. For a bolder and more aggressive statement, we offer our Heavy Metal Picture Frames. These frames are thicker than our standard metal frames and finished off with a wide rounded edge. We offer several black metal frame options throughout our Glory Metal Picture Frame Series as well as gold, silver, bronze, purple and green.

Metal picture frames provide a more modern look and feel than their wooden counterparts. While metal frames don’t have as wide a spectrum of colors to choose from (as opposed to wood picture frames) they make up for it with their durability. Banging or dropping a wood frame can cause chips in the paint or dents. Not only will a metal picture frame resist a few bumps, but if a side does in fact end up damaged it can be unattached and replaced

These metal frames are available in all standard size picture frames and can be custom ordered as well. Ideal for both domestic and executive environments, these inexpensive metal picture frames exemplify the best in durability and design. Check out our collection of Metal Frames, now.

Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation

Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation
Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation

The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation’s mission is dedicated to the prevention of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, through awareness, education and support of research to find a cure.

Andy Caress lost his battle with melanoma in August, 2010 at the young age of 24. In his short life, Andy accomplished so much as a college tennis player at Coastal Carolina University, an excellent student, tennis professional, role model, loving son, brother and uncle, and as a source of inspiration for many around the globe suffering from this tragic disease.  

The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. It was formed in May, 2010 by Andy Caress and is based in Cincinnati. In the early months of the organization’s formation, Andy’s friends and family rallied behind him and raised $10,000 for the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Andy was proud to present the check to Dr. Patrick Hwu, his melanoma oncologist. ACMF has contributed to M.D. Anderson annually since Andy presented the initial amount. 

During his battle, Andy realized that this disease is often misunderstood by the public as an “easy” or “lucky” cancer to get. His will was to change this misconception and the foundation is keeping that dream alive. 

His mission is simple: “My goal is that melanoma will never impact any person the way it has impacted me, and I will achieve my goal by educating the world about how melanoma may be prevented and identified.”

The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation carries this mission forward after his tragic death. The specific goals of the foundation are consistent with Andy’s mission and include:

1) Creating awareness about the seriousness of melanoma and that it affects all skin tones and races.

2) Educating the public about steps that can be taken to prevent melanoma.

3) Increasing opportunities for a cure for this deadly disease through work with leading melanoma and cancer research organizations.

4) “Wipe melanoma off the face of the planet” – in Andy’s words.

To help with the vision, Frame USA will be donating to the Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation in appreciation for your online order for the month of August.

We are proud to support this great organization. Be sure to donate during the checkout process to help us support this great charity!

Photo Wall – A Fun Way to Revitalize a Living Space

A photo wall is a wall frame display similar to your own mini art gallery. Basically, it is a ton of different sized photos thrown on a wall with some kind of order to it. These photo walls are a popular way to display family portraits, artwork, or any type of memory you want to share with the world.

A popular place many people are designing their photo wall is around their staircases. A photo wall display easily livens up a usually boring staircase and is the perfect area to place smaller wall frames. As you walk up or down the steps you can arrange the wall frames to gradually age for a nice effect.

One way to spice up your photo wall is to use shelves to help display your pictures. The majority of photo walls are simply a collection of photos hung together that all have a matching theme. Using shelves is an underrated means to add a different feel to your photo wall. Also, using a ledge display can save space because you can layer your photos in order to fit more in a smaller space, something that’s not as easy when arranging them on a photo wall.

On a similar accord, monograms are a nice decorative design that can add flair to you photo walls. This is especially prevalent if you are hanging family photos as it can be a nice way to identify the people photographed as well as break up the monotony of the photos.

The newest trend in photo walls is taking full advantage of your bathroom. Similar to how photo walls can be used to liven up a staircase, these wall frames can also bring to life a bland bathroom.

A mistake that some people don’t even consider when embarking on their own photo wall journey is sticking with only the standard photo size. The wall frames you chose to hang on your photo wall do not have to be uniform. In fact, using different photo sizes as opposed is a great way to make your photo wall less repetitive.

Lastly, make sure you know the proper methods of how to hang photos so as not to damage the wall or the frame and get started today!

Item #: PSA009879

Game of Thrones is a TV show that has taken over the nation! Game of Thrones is an HBO show created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and is an adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels written by George R.R. Martin. The show first premiered on April 17, 2011 and its 7th season premieres this Sunday, July 16th and will conclude with its eighth and final season the following year.

Game of Thrones is set in the fictitious Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series is all about the struggles between the noble families and their fight to rule the kingdom and sit on top of the Iron Throne.

George R.R. Martin began writing the series A Song of Ice and Fire in 1991 and had the first book published in 1996. Amazingly, over 20 years later and Martin has only published five of the even planned novels in the series. Fans of the book have been in an uproar because finally the TV series has surpassed the book and will potentially ruin secrets that have yet to be revealed in the book.

Head on over to our sister site Poster Service and browse our selection of Game of Thrones inspired posters so you can frame and hang your fandom. We know you’ll be watching with us.

July 4, 2017 – Independence Day

Frame-USA-America

The 4th of July aka Independence Day is a federal holiday (an authorized holiday that has been recognized by the United States government) marking the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.

The Declaration of Independence is the statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress which announced that the thirteen colonies considered themselves as independent sovereign states and that they were under British rule no more. The thirteen colonies decided to form new nation, the United States of America.

The 4th of July is marked by patriotic displays. Just like a lot of other summer events, Independence Day celebrations often take place outdoors and people often celebrate by hosting or attending a picnic or barbecue; many take advantage of the day off and, in some years, a long weekend to gather with relatives or friends. Decorations (e.g., streamers, balloons, and clothing) are colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades are often held in the morning, before family gatherings and fireworks occur in the evening.

4th of July Fun Facts:

  • Only John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. All the others signed at a later date.
  • The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 men from 13 colonies.
  • The average age of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence was 45. The youngest was Thomas Lynch, Jr (27) of South Carolina.  The oldest delegate was Benjamin Franklin (70) of Pennsylvania. The lead author of The Declaration, Thomas Jefferson, was 33.
  • The stars on the original American flag were in a circle so all the Colonies would appear equal.
  • Barbecue is also big on Independence Day. Approximately 150 million hot dogs and 700 million pounds of chicken are consumed on this day.

 

 

July Charity of the Month: Valley Interfaith

Valley Interfaith
Valley Interfaith

In 1963 a young family came to The Church of the Ascension and Holy Trinity asking for help. By 1965 the Wyoming Presbyterian Women’s Guild filled two closets in the basement of the Wyoming Presbyterian Church with food and other needed items. In the mid-1970s the churches organized their efforts into the “Valley Food and Clothing Bank” and in 1977 provided 50 Christmas baskets. By 1979, the Bank was serving approximately 150 people yearly “by appointment.” In September of 1982 they moved to Friendship Methodist Church where we operated for the next 13 years.

By 1995, they were ready to move into the newly established Valley Caring Center, located at their current address 420 W. Wyoming Ave in Lockland. For 10 years VIFCC operated out of the back of the Valley Caring Center and in 2005 moved into the newly remodeled front space.

Since then, Valley Interfaith has grown into the operation it is today, hiring their first paid employee in 2000. With the commitment of hundreds of volunteers and few paid staff, they have continued to expand their capacity to better serve the community. In 2017, after months of working with a strategic planning professional, they unveiled a new strategic plan and announced a new organization name, Valley Interfaith Community Resource Center.

To help with the vision, Frame USA will be donating to Valley Interfaith in appreciation for your online order for the month of July.

We are proud to support this great organization. Be sure to donate during the checkout process to help us support this great charity!
