Wood Picture Frames – Made in the USA

Thank you for visiting our site to learn about our vast variety of beautiful, quality-built wood picture frames of over 80 different varieties, sizes, profiles, widths, and colors. If you don’t see the exact product you want, we can almost certaintly make it for you.

Most of our wood frames displayed on our wood frames page are made of 100% real wood, but we also have many frames that are made of an eco-friendly Bonanza Wood, which is a wood composite material. These eco-friendly series are clearly marked, and some of them are among our very best sellers.

Real wood frames are unmarked, and our eco-friendly/recycled wood frames will have the green Eco Friendly logo on the top-left. Not sure about a specific frame series? Ask!

All of our wood and metal frames, poster frames, shadow boxes, and certificate frames are made in the United States. We build them and ship them directly to you from our large manufacturing / warehouse facility in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. If you look at our home page during normal production hours, you can click onto a link near the bottom-right of the page and watch us manufacture the frames that will look great in your home, office, studio, showroom, hotel, or restaurant.

The frames you buy from Frame USA come to you fully assembled with sturdy backing, glass or styrene, and hangers or easels, depending on the size of the frame. We carefully package and ship our frames directly from our centrally-located facility.

When you receive your shipment from Frame USA, you won’t need to get out your tool box and start reading assembly instructions. You won’t need to buy glass or a clear styrene sheet to protect your art, photo, print, or other piece you want to display. All you have to do is place your artwork in the frame and put it on display.

Our goal is to provide our customers with the best quality American made picture frames we can build, at the best prices we can offer, and deliver them to you on time, in excellent condition.

When you finish ordering the wood picture frames that are just right for your use, don’t forget about our many varieties of metal frames, poster frames, shadow box frames, and special frames for diplomas, licenses, awards, certificates, and other important documents.

5 Questions from Artists who need Frames

How do you frame a canvas? Can you frame an oil painting? These common questions and more are answered in this week’s top 5 questions!

 

1. What looks best with black and white photographs?

This is a question we receive quite often, and one that’s best discovered with a good amount of experimentation. In the end, the answer will vary based on how much of a value scale your image has. If it’s darker, you may want a lighter frame to showcase the darks. If there’s more white space, a black picture frame will make the piece more visually striking. A good in-between is silver, particularly our Vernona Wide (or narrow if you prefer) Tarnished Silver. In fact, we recently used this to frame a custom order for one of our contest winners. He loved it, as did his family and friends:

2. What frame pairs well with black and white drawing / pen and ink?

A good pairing for black and white art does fall under the same advice as photography, however, an art piece can generally be seen as more striking in a standard black frame. Pen and ink can really be framed in any color, though, depending on the theme of your work. For instance, a simple drawing of the ocean or rain storm could look perfect in a frame with blue hues (Clean Cute for instance.) Another idea is to go with a more textured frame like Carbon Fiber if your piece is a bit more cacophonous.

3. What frames are used for canvas displays?

Our best frames for the job include Floater Frames and our In-Depth series. Floater is one of our most recent art frames – made specifically for the purpose of displaying canvas artwork. You can see how these frames look in action below:

Floater-Black-Smooth-With-Art

Floater-Frame-with-art

4. How do you frame an oil painting?

As with the above response, Most paintings and canvas work will fit best inside of a Floater or In-Depth picture frame. These are our deepest frames and offer the best look for those times you want your painting inside of a frame. Glass is not included with a Floater frame if you’re buying from us, but that’s a fairly standard method of display within the art industry.

5. Which picture frame material is right for me?

Finally, another question we hear often is “Which frame is right for me?” It’s an understandable question when you see how many we have! Wood, metal, shadow box, poster frames, acryllic easels… The honest answer is, you have to find out on your own! Learn whether the room you are presenting in will have a lot of glare, or if that’s even a concern of yours. Know whether or not real wood or eco-friendly wood is important to you. There are plenty of options to choose from most of those choices are situational. Have a look at our past blog posts on choosing the right frame. Our YouTube channel can also help!

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!

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.

Frame USA Retail Store’s Annual Tent Sale Returns!

Starting August 1st, tent sale shoppers can save 25%-50% off all picture frames and posters under the tent!

For Cincinnati locals, you’ll be happy to know that it’s that time again! Frame USA is having its annual tent sale. Our early August tent sale has always been about saving hundreds in art, wall decor and framing. Join us as our progressive approach to savings expands from 25%, 35% and all the way to 50% by Sunday!

Now, while we are also the type to hold off to get the best possible savings, waiting until Sunday does limit the number of frames available. At these prices, everyhing sells fast!

Here are some tips from us on how to get the most out of our great prices from the tent sale:

1. Stop by early, even if you don’t intend to buy.

An early start on Friday means there are more chances to find exactly what you’re looking for.

2. Know when to buy, and when to wait and save.

If you are looking for something common (like a brown 8×10 frame), you shouldn’t find too much issue finding what you need. If you’re looking for a specific type of frame, or to find an odd-sized custom frome that made it into closeouts, you may want to hurry by. We also have plenty of great posters to put in those frames as well.

3. Think ahead when attending the sale: birthdays, holidays, graduation, dorm rooms, etc.

Sales like this don’t happen very often, and even our employees are thrilled to stock up on items for their family and friend’s gifts. If you have any significant events in the upcoming year that need a frame, you can save some serious cash at our tent sale.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Our staff is knowledgeable and ready to help answer any and all questions about art and framing. Stop by and join in on the fun!
