Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women during their lives — a frightening statistic, considering the cancer’s devastating effects. Whether women experience it directly or help their friends and family deal with the shock, organizations like the Bethesda Foundation are reaching out to help. That’s why we at Frame USA recently sponsored and attended the TPC River’s Bend Ladies’ Golf “Tee Off Against Breast Cancer” event.
The golfing event went to directly support the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Cancer — a center that does far more than raise awareness. All donations go to assist in cancer research, direct medical care for affected patients and general support for those going through this life-altering disease.
It is because of these reasons that we were (and still are) proud to support the above foundations, and plan to do so whenever we can as a company. To learn more about the Mary Jo Cropper Center, click here.

As most of you know, Build A Frame is a great web application used to custom-build your frame without the expense of visiting a custom framer. (When you’re spending $150 online vs. spending $300-$400 at a retail framer — the only difference is price!)
Now at these great prices, how can you be sure of the quality? Luckily, we have that covered. Our framers are top-notch experts in the framing industry – extensively trained on joining frames, cutting precise meaurements, mat selections and fine-tuning the details exactly like you want them. These framers also work for our retail store at our warehouse in Cincinnati, OH – not only are they experts in the field, but they deal with custom orders and customers on a daily basis.
Whether you’re wanting to frame a piece of art you have at home, a Posterservice art print or upload your own image for us to print, we’ll customize your piece to be the perfect fit for you. Check out the Build A Frame feature here!

Floater frames are in high demand among painters and photographers who prefer canvas prints. Framing a canvas is a great alternative to simply hanging a standalone canvas: when framed, the art has much more of a safe shell around it to protect from damage to the outer edges. It also improves the look of the art, with the frame acting as a focal point for the artist’s work.
The above was a great piece done by our specialty framing and retail manager, Jennifer Miller. A skilled artist, painter and framer, she used a great color pallette to work with the frame. Along with the American Maple shown here, we also offer the floater frame series in black. Perfect for nearly any piece of canvas art!
If you have any questions as to the quality or value that a floater frame can bring to your art piece, consider emailing us at [email protected]. You can also fill out our custom quote form if you know you need some floater frames for selling or displaying your work. This week only, these floater frames are also on sale for 10% off!

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.

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:

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!
A more detailed view of the illustration. All because of a comment left in the “notes” section of our checkout process!
This time, the customer asked for an elephant to be drawn on the box. Again, Kelley delivered…
You can find our latest customer comments here, which is updated every 2-3 months.
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.
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!
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.”
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/.
