Most of us have a favorite t-shirt. It might be one that is from the State Championships for football from high school, a t-shirt of our favorite band from one of their concerts, or maybe just one that fits just right.
At Frame USA, we have the perfect option for framing your t-shirt. Our Frame-A-Tee comes in 3 sizes, and is available to frame a t-shirt in any size from small to extra large.
While a black t-shirt frame is the most popular, this series also comes in a great natural and walnut color option to frame your t-shirts. Our t-shirt frames also include easy instructions for assembly upon receiving them.
There’s a lot of art out there in the world that needs framing; posters, prints, paintings, tilework, etc. Much of it is custom sized and needs to be taken in to be measured by your local framers to give you the best fit and the best look. However there are a lot of standard sizes that art makers try to stick to to make it easy for galleries and private buyers to display their work. At Frame USA, while we can produce custom sized frames easily, we also have frames available in nearly every conceivable standard art size. This makes it easy when you have something and you want to find a picture frame for it quick and easy.
There are the small photo sizes that we are familiar with that the kids’ school pictures are usually released in. 4 x 6, 5 x 7, 8 x 10 and 11 x 14. These all include easel backs for standing on a desk or table, and there are some sizes in between like 8 x 12 and 7 x 7 that are available as standard.
There are plenty of mid range sizes. These fit items like theater posters and playbills from performances and concerts, and smaller watercolor paintings and art. You can get an 11 x 17 frame, 10 x 13, 13 x 19 are all sizes that go with these kinds of art.
If you’re wanting to find large large frames online, there are plenty of bigger standard sizes that will go with your movie posters and larger art prints. A 24 x 36 frame (or a 36 x 24 frame if your art is oriented landscape style) and 27 x 41 are both popular movie poster sizes. However 24 x 30 and 22 x 28 are also popular sizes as far as art prints are concerned.
So keep in mind that you don’t always need to get custom framing for your art. You can shop for photo frames online, or poster frames or any frames and find them in the frame sizes that you are looking for.
Summer is a time to lighten up your interior design; a time to give your rooms an airy, breezy feel. You can use paint color choices and furniture accessories like throw pillows and table runners to accomplish this. You can also use picture frames to give your design that beach-house feel. You can always use colorful picture frames to achieve a warm, festive feel, but sometimes that can go a bit too “kid’s room”. The perfect solution for lightening up your decor is using white picture frames. A white frame can be elegant and modern, clean and mature. At Frameusa we have several white picture frames that would make any of your art or photos pop.
As its name implies, the Beach White frame is a picture frame that is at home with the sun shining on it from across the ocean right outside your door. It comes in a wide and a narrow profile to best give your artwork the
Our white driftwood has two different wide profiles, one with a scoop and one with an outer bevel. It has a sligtly weathered appearance to give it that natural feel.
BLACK AND WHITE
The Black and White series has a sleek profile with a simple angular bevel along the inside. It comes in black and white, but the white is what we think would help your decor feel cheery and modern.
Finally, simplicity is the best way to achieve an inviting, casual decor. Our Corporate picture frames have a flat 1 1/4″ profile that could not be simpler. It comes in many colors, including white. A very chic and unpretentious frame to show off any style of artwork in any medium
So as the weather warms and you want to let the sun shine on a room that feels like a day on vacation, consider using white picture frames to brighten up your home.
You spend a lot of time in your office or your cubicle. Your desk becomes a second home and you want to feel comfortable while you spend hours toiling away at your job. It’s nice to be able to look up and see photos of family and friends; pictures or even magazine clippings that remind us of the things we enjoy.
Sometimes there’s not much room on your desk for frames with easels and when you’re moving your hands around your desk you could knock them over and break them. Sometimes you don’t have the space for nice frames.
Bent acrylics are a great solution for this. Bent acrylic picture frames are clear plastic frames that are bent at an angle to create a “stand” that holds up the larger part of the piece. They are then bent around to create a slot that pictures can be inserted into the slot.
At Frameusa acrylic frames come in many sizes, most made to support standard photo sizes like 3.5×5,
4×6, 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14. They are perfect for popping in a pic of the kids or taking a larger one and using it for two pictures together.
So if you’re looking to spruce up your desk but have limited space (and want something very inexpensive) come over to Frame USA and grab a few of our bent acrylic frames for your favorite pics. The pics that keep you going throughout the day.
We all remember that moment. The moment when we received our acceptance letter to college and the sheer joy we got when we realized we’re officially moving out of mom and dads. While college classes and finding new friends can be intimating, there is nothing more exciting than picking out your college dorm décor! This is the time where you can let your personality shine through and can feel confident about your room. While college students may not have a very large space to work with, this is the time to get creative.
While curtains, bedding, and lighting can define your style, there is nothing better than artwork to make your dorm room pop! Posters and art prints can be visual representations of your style. They should be something you’re happy with to see every day. So we suggest picking something with similar color schemes and images that blend in rather than stand out in a negative way. Classic dorm room posters range from Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe to music legends and humor posters.
Posters can be a great addition to any wall because they can be symbols of who you are, where you came from and most importantly, where you are going. While decorating can be quite expensive, posters are great savings to your wallet. You can find most art, inspirational, and humor posters for less than $7.00. Pair two or three of your favorite posters and you’re looking at $20.00. Framing your hand selected posters, will make them last longer and save you money. Poster frames are a great way to make your posters stand out. They also help eliminate creasing and ripping.
Whatever your style may be, there will always be a poster or print to match. So go ahead, and hang whatever makes you smile. Remember, you’ll be in this room for a year so this is the time to let your personality shine!
Since about the age of 5 (maybe even before, but I was too young to remember) I have been into drawing, painting, and writing. When I was little I used to write poetry and short stories for my aunts and uncles. Even to this day I will write wedding announcements and poems for someone in love, looking to get engaged and even those who have passed on.
Once I got into my teenage years I continued to enjoy drawing and writing, but it seemed fashion design constantly stayed on my mind. Over the years I have allowed my hobby to help me create wonderful things for other people. I used the internet to help teach myself how to sew and have made clothing, pillows and all kinds of amazing things. I have re-designed shoes, lamps and even painted cartoon characters on my kids’ bedroom walls.
The past few years however, I have used my creative bones to make unique diaper cakes and gifts. This is where I take a box of diapers, a baby blanket and maybe a few other baby items to create beautiful gifts for moms and dads to be. I have made diaper tricycles, diaper babies, diaper cakes and so much more.
The thing I love most about being creative is that art itself is so versatile and comes in so many forms. Art is more than just a painting or drawing; it’s more than singing or playing notes on a piano. Art is anything and everything you want it to be. Art can be hair design, dance, singing and acting. Expressing ones art is more than just dabbling in a hobby now and then. In my opinion, if you a love a hobby strong enough, it’s no longer considered a hobby in my eyes. It soon becomes a passion and an essential part of who you are and what you are really destined to be!
Mother’s Day will be here in less than a week. Every year we strive to find something nice to give our moms. The ideal present is something that is personal and practical. Handmade gifts are hard to beat. Not everyone is crafty enough to make a perfect present. IThe next best thing is finding a gift that will remind her of the relationship she shares with you, every time she looks at it. One great idea is to find art and frame it for her. Art can speak volumes, whether through a single image, or literal words and text put together in a visually appealing way. At Posterservice and Frame USA we have a wide variety of both art prints and picture frames. With thousands of pieces to choose from you are bound to find something meaningful that you can put in a wonderful frame and give to her. Below are just a few examples of art and pictureframes combined that would make great Mother’s Day Gifts.
The simplest way to show how you feel is to say, “I love you.” And with the print below you can say it in a myriad of languages.This is our “I Love You” inspriational print int a blue Architect picture frame.
Maybe your mom longs to travel. Perhaps it was always her dream to visit Paris and she hasn’t gotten to yet. Or maybe she’s been a dozen times and loves it more with each visit. Giving her a print of a place she loves shows her how well you know her. The piece below is our Eiffel Tower-Black and White print, in an American Value Silver frame, profile 802, with a nice mat to set the image off.
Was your mother the cool mom on the street? Did she let you watch Jaws with her when you were nine or ten and then let you climb into bed with her that night when you woke up from nightmares about Great White sharks? If you and her have laughed about that for years, putting our classic “Jaws” movie poster into a flat black Metall II frame will bring back those fun memories.
There are so may different combinations of art you can choose from; movies, tv, music, animals, maps–everything under the sun. And with a huge selection of metal frames, wood frames, poster frames and shadowboxes, the chance of finding your mom something great is assured. Let your mother know you appreciate her. Give her something that will remind her of your love every time she looks at it.
Bare walls cry out for something to give them a bit of interest. You can go out and find paintings or posters easily, there are plenty of artists and vendors to choose from. Sometimes a painting is too much though, especially in a kitchen or bathroom, while a poster might not be the feel you’re looking for and may be too large. There is a great, stylish solution that meets those in the middle’ wood mounted art plaques.
At Posterservice we have a selection of plaque mounted art with something to suit any taste or decor. If you’re looking for something to put in your kitchen, we have several beer and wine themed plaques that are both classy and fun.
We also have a number of great inspirational plaques to brighten any room with a little positivity.
We also have plenty of plaque mounts taken from our selection of art prints, inluding some of our Mark Allante selection. A wood mount can feel a little more substantial than a poster or print and they work with both modern and rustic design aesthetics.
Art has a way of healing. For both the its creator and the audience experiencing it. It’s a bridge that connects two individuals—and sometimes m groups—allowing them to communicate experiences and emotions. It is powerful and it can save lives. The Cincinnati based non-profit organization Visionaries and Voices helps disabled artists—artists who want very much to be heard—by providing studio space. supplies, education and exhibition. They also help the community at large by allowing us to experience what those artists are communicating.
Frame USA is proud to partner with Visionaries and Voices to provide Studio Space and other materials here in our building. For the month of April we will be donating to Visionaries and Voices.
“Established in 2003, Visionaries + Voices is a non-profit organization that provides representation, studio space, supplies, and support to more than 140 visual artists with disabilities. V+V artists actively contribute to the greater arts community through creative, educational, and strategic partnerships with local and regional artists, schools, and business leaders. Collectively, we are growing a more inclusive arts community in Greater Cincinnati.
We create a world in which artists with disabilities not only produce and share works of art, but are also given continuous opportunities to learn, develop professionally, collaborate, exhibit, and celebrate with community members.”
We are proud to support this great organization. Be sure to donate during the checkout process to help us support this great charity!
I have lived in downtown Cincinnati for over 8 years now and like most downtown living, space is always an issue. You pay a lot for a little. So maximizing your space with proper furniture is paramount. Choosing appropriate sized pieces and not over cluttering is the key to a great living space.
Often forgotten are the walls. Sure, a great paint color on the wall can help open up a space, but putting up unique and interesting art can define a space. Often times you don’t need to spend a lot on artwork if you do a little digging. For example, if you find an artistic poster you could look for a unique or more elegant frame that helps bring that piece together. This way you are not spending hundreds on art work, your only making it look like you did.
Another great option is canvas. Canvas adds a
unique touch to the space and if you choose interesting artwork to display it can really help define your space and personality. Canvas can be on the expensive side but is worth it for the look. Plus, if you can find a shop that is running a deal (like Frame USA) then you can get great art for a bargain.
Don’t be afraid to add framed art to walls, it is one of the best ways to add style and color to your space without taking up a lot of space!
