Floater Frames: The Perfect Frame for Canvas Paintings

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.

Floater_ArtComplete

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!

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!

This time, the customer asked for an elephant to be drawn on the box. Again, Kelley delivered…

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.
