The first step in your picture framing journey would be to choose a piece of art or a photo to frame that holds some sort of value to you. This is important because you will be living with your framed work for a while.Once you’ve selected what it is that you intend to frame, the next step is figuring out where you hand to hang your picture frame. When doing this you need to think about the design of the room, the style of the picture and the style of the frame you want to use.If the room you’re picture framing in looks modern for example, you’ll want to avoid ornate frames because these two things clash. Similarly, you have to note the style of the photo or piece of art you’re hanging to avoid clashing as well. Generally, older style of pictures look better in older styled frames because their decor matches. You will have to decide what size frame you want, if you want a thin or thick frame or if you would like to use a shadow box or an other type of specialty frame.
You will also want to think carefully about the color of your picture so you can decide what color frame will enhance your image the most. Black, white and brown are safe picks because they are neutral colors which will generally match most pictures. On the other end of the spectrum, choosing colors like blue, purple, green or red can make a picture really pop and draw attention to it in a room.
Sizing is something that need careful consideration as well; not just the size of the image but the size of the frame, mat and space where it’s going to be hung or displayed.
When picture framing, do you want the picture to be the focal point of the room and take up a large amount of space or do you want to be a small added detail to the room? You’ll have to decide what works better for your design.
These are rules and guidelines that the industry adheres to when picture framing but rules were made to be broken, especially when you’re looking to make a statement with your design.
Vince Lombardi said, “Individual commitment to a group effort: that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work and a civilization work.” His words have great meaning and hold very true in almost any aspect of work and life.
If you have a group of people working individually, not communicating, but working towards accomplishing the same goal that can easilyt result in chaos. Some individuals might be overlapping on the tasks they are doing. Some tasks might get forgotten if Sally thinks Melvin is doing a certain task, and Melvin thinks Edward is doing it, but in the end, nobody has done it.Teamwork is communicating. I believe that poeple working together to accomplish a common goal will always prove higher, more quality, results than individuals not working as a cohesive unit.
Teamwork helps us accomplish results in a more timely manner. Teamwork can be fun, it also can help improve the attitude of the team. Teamwork makes for a better working environment and culture all around. Teamwork can consist of helping people through actions to get the job done, but it also can consisty of individuals lifting other team members up through help and a positive attitude. One small gesutre of help or support can go a long way for a struggling employee, or someone just having a bad day.
I really encourage team efforts on all of the areas I manage. I try to combine efforts of separate teams and make them one. At the end of the day our goal is to create Raving Fans! Every. Sing;e. Day. So in my mind it doesn’t matter what area you work in, I really try to create a culture that we are all there for one another, no single person is left on the island alone.
Like Vince said, if we individually commit to working as a group that is what will make our team work, Frame USA work, or any aspect of our lives. Teamwork makes the team work. Or in my words, teamwork makes the dream work!
A lot of people have questions on the best way to frame a movie poster. While movie poster frames can range in size, the two most common sizes for movie posters are 24×36 and 27×40. Lucky for you, we have a wide range of movie posters and frames for those posters.
First, you need to pick out the perfect poster. Posterservice.com offers a wide range of options, with many top movie poster choices including Super Hero Movies, Star Wars, Terminator and more!
Here are just a few of these great options:
Once you’ve found that perfect poster, you need a movie poster frame.
24 x 36 Poster Frame – This is the most common poster frame size (average poster size) and generally the size that standard posters are made. This is the ideal size for concert and novelty posters to hang around your room or house.
27 x 40 Poster Frame – This is the standard movie poster frame size for typical movie posters (occasionally you’ll find them sized 27 x 41) making it perfect for officially licensed movie posters.
In case you were wondering, all frames can be used to frame posters no matter the type or style. Just remember when your choosing picture frame sizes best suited for your needs, always (and I can’t stress that enough) measure your image first. Our frame sizes are based on inside dimensions, meaning if you have an image that is 8 x 10 and you do not intend on using the mat, you would want to order an 8 x 10 frame. Now if you have an 8 x 10 image and do want to include the mat in the framing process, you have to order a larger frame size to accommodate this.
“Fantastic actually, thanks for asking…How’s your week coming along?”
“I’m doing well & how about yourself?”
“Just trying to keep it together, and you?”

The foundation for any agreement, albeit personal or business, is rooted in the relationship. Successful relationships are built with good communication, lots of understanding and no false pretenses. Therefore, being in sales and marketing can be challenging. You need to know your product (and know it well), believe in your product and be able to convey the value of said product. You also need to be able to relate to the buyer and depending on their frame reference, cater to their intellectual needs or their emotional needs. The buyer needs to be confident in your presence of product and/or your presence of person.
Being a person who greatly enjoys the art of communication, small talk seems to come natural for me. I’m rarely caught without words. Maybe sometimes this will get me in trouble but usually it brings smiles.
My name is Amanda Dunaway and as the new Sales Representative at Posterservice, I’m really excited about making connections. The opportunity to convey our product line, with its edgy concepts, is definitely something new for me. My sales background has always been in regards to emotional purchases; I’ve sold houses/homes and baby photography. Selling entertaining posters will be unique and I’m super amp’d and ready to rock! Who doesn’t want to talk about “what’s in”, “what’s tried & true” and “what’s super hot”?

On Tuesday, October 31st Frame USA once again hosted it’s annual Halloween party! The party features festive food, snacks and drinks and there is a pumpkin decorating (we’ll call it decorating instead of carving because some pumpkins were painted) contest as well as a costume contest.
The origins of carving pumpkins at Halloween began in Ireland in the 19th century. Originally people hallowed out turnips to act as lanterns and often carved them with obscure faces. Jack-o’-lanterns were said to represent the spirits or supernatural beings (used by people to frighten others),or were used to ward off evil spirits (set in places to keep harmful spirits out of one’s home).
In addition to all these wonderfully decorated pumpkins we crafted, there was also a costume contest which many of our employees participated in. It is thought that wearing Halloween costumes began in Scotland in 1585 with the custom coming from Celtic festivals. Halloween costumes were traditionally based on supernatural or terrifying characters but by the 30’s, costume trend took a turn with more of them being based on characters in mass media, film and literature.
We hope everybody have a safe Halloween and enjoyed it as much as we did!
“St Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in 1962. St. Jude’s is a pediatric treatment and research facility that is focused on children’s catastrophic diseases. The hospital costs around $2.4 million a day to run and there is no cost to be treated.
Since St Jude was established, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which is the most common type of childhood cancer, has increased from 4% in 1962 to 94% today. Also during this time the overall survival rate for childhood cancers has risen from 20% to 80%. St. Jude has treated children from across the US and over 70 countries, with doctors across the world consulting with St. Jude on their toughest cases.“
To help with the vision, Frame USA will be donating to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in appreciation for your online order for the month of November.
We are proud to support this great organization. Be sure to donate during the checkout process to help us support this great charity!
October 24th, 2017 is National Food Day in the USA. This day is all about showcasing healthy food and encouraging people to change their diets for the better. The whole idea is to help people Eat Real, which means limiting the amount of pop and sugary drinks, extremely salted foods, factory farmed meats and other unhealthy items and increasing the intake of fruits, sustainable raised protein, vegetables and whole grains.
National Food Day was started in 2011 by The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). The CSPI provides advice and advocacy for a healthier food system by educating the public and pushing for government policies that are enforce what we know about the dangers of the food we intake.
Some of the biggest changes they’re looking to make with Nation Food Day includes:
Keeping junk food out of schools
Reducing the consumption of soda
Reducing sodium in processed food
Ensure accurate and honest labeling on food packages
Decrease the amount of junk food marketed to children
“The typical American diet is contributing to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems. Those problems cost Americans more than $150 billion per year. Plus, a meat-heavy diet takes a terrible toll on the environment. Eating Real can save your own health and put our food system on a more humane, sustainable path. With America’s resources, there’s no excuse for hunger, low wages for food and farm workers, or inhumane conditions for farm animals.”
So do your part and start today! Eat a healthier dies and put your family’s diet on track for success.
On Friday the 13th, Frame USA once again hosted it’s annual chili cook-off! This year there were three different competitors who brought their own homemade chili recipes for us all to tryout. There was chicken chili, turkey chili and a spicy beef chili that the entire company feasted on.
All three chilies were delicious and attempting to select a winner tore the company apart. In addition to the chili we also had people bring in very tasty side dishes including homemade cornbread, jalapeno cornbread, black bean brownies and spinach artichoke dip among other things.
Take a look at how the employees were enjoying the feast!
