Big Frame Sizes

Big Frame Sizes

It is important for us to clarify how our sizes work in general. In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized big frame sizes overall. These big frame sizes cover a wide range and our most popular sizes are:

16 × 20

16x20 Big Frames
16×20 Big Frames

Our 16 × 20 Picture Frame is a great size frame because you can make it a highlight piece on your wall, or part of a mixture with other frames to form a collage on your wall. Our 16 × 20 frames include an off white mat for an 11×14 image. This option provides just over 2” of matting on each side of your image. This is also a perfect size to go with when using wider picture frames.

18 x 24

18x24 Big Frames
18×24 Big Frames

This is the quintessential frame size for hanging advertisements in a lobby or venue, or just about any metropolitan area where people can see the image and read the words without having to be directly in front of the poster.

24×36
24x36 Big Frames
24×36 Big Frames

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. Therefore if you are looking to frame a poster for a dorm room, your office or house, or to give as a gift, this is the perfect picture frame size for you. For those with the “go big or go home” mindset, you may want to aim for this size or larger. If you have a 24×36 or larger poster, we definitely recommend a frame to keep your art scratch-free and to highlight the print as a whole.

27 x 40

27x40 Big Frames
27×40 Big Frames

 

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.

We hope this article has provided you with all of the information you may need when ordering our picture frames. Remember, if you need any help with your poster frames, please call 800.577.5920 or click here if you have custom framing needs.

Enjoy, and thanks for shopping with Frame USA!

 

 

Metal Picture Frames

Our Metal I and Metal II Picture Frames are known for their superior quality and affordability. For a bolder and more aggressive statement, we offer our Heavy Metal Picture Frames. These frames are thicker than our standard metal frames and finished off with a wide rounded edge. We offer several black metal frame options throughout our Glory Metal Picture Frame Series as well as gold, silver, bronze, purple and green.

Metal picture frames provide a more modern look and feel than their wooden counterparts. While metal frames don’t have as wide a spectrum of colors to choose from (as opposed to wood picture frames) they make up for it with their durability. Banging or dropping a wood frame can cause chips in the paint or dents. Not only will a metal picture frame resist a few bumps, but if a side does in fact end up damaged it can be unattached and replaced

These metal frames are available in all standard size picture frames and can be custom ordered as well. Ideal for both domestic and executive environments, these inexpensive metal picture frames exemplify the best in durability and design. Check out our collection of Metal Frames, now.

Engraved Picture Frames

Giving gifts is hard. Whether it might be for a friend or loved one that you want to give something personal to. Or maybe it’s for a school or work event and you want to give the recipient something  will keep and remember. It can be tricky choosing something. A really perfect choice, for nearly any situation is custom engraved picture frames from Frame USA.

Laser engraved products are absolutely storming the market, anywhere from engraved jewelry to engraved hunting rifles. A big draw to this is personalization; being able to modify a product so that it reflects something with meaning to the consumer. It goes without saying, then, that laser engraving is something that must be done with the utmost care and skill to give the customer exactly what they want.

The big secret to engraved frames lies in the craftsmanship, technology and the technical skill of the engraver. One must know how to troubleshoot errors, utilize expert layout skills and have a broad understanding of the engraved material. It can be a very costly process if your engraver is not careful. Similarly, it’s important to know the limitations of laser engraving. There are many surfaces that can be harmful if engraved, or even ruined. Knowing an expert is half the battle!

There’s no right or wrong way to create your engraved picture frame. There are so many options for text and graphics. You can get creative with it and give someone something really memorable. Engraved picture frames are made to impress.

Certificate Frames

Recognition is something we get all too rarely in this world and it’s something to be cherished. A verbal compliment or note of appreciation can really pick up your day, but when you receive a tangible, hard copy of an accomplishment–that can last forever. Certificate Frames are a way to memorialize those compliments and displaying them so you can look to those when you’re not having such a great day and maybe remember that you earned that accolade. Awards, certificates, diplomas–they should be framed and hung where you can see them, in a nice certificate frame that shows off your accomplishment.

What Does Made In America Mean To You?

Made In America

These days, we hear so much in the news and media about being Made in America or Made in the USA.  While this “phenomenon” is new for many businesses, it is not a new initiative for this picture frame manufacturer.

At Frame USA, we have been focusing on being Made in America since we started over 30 years ago.  We manufacture on average 2,750 picture frames a day, in all categories:

In 2010, we were even featured on a Diane Sawyer special that focused on American-made businesses: http://www.frameusa.com/pages/worldnews.

So what does Made in America mean to me?  Made in America means working hard to keep American jobs here in the United States, and offering great opportunities to so many throughout this great country of ours.  While politics may be a focus on your opinion of Made in America, it is not a focus of mine.

We produce great American made picture frames, at low wholesale prices every day here at Frame USA.  As our economy changes, our small American made business notices it quickly.  Do we lose business to China?  Yes.  Do we care?  Yes and no.  In our experience, many people come forward and are looking for the cheapest option all the time.  Then when they find out it will take them 6-12 weeks to get their picture frames from China, they appreciate our 4-5 business day turnaround a lot more.

We care because no one wants to lose business, however, do we waiver on making great American made products, no way!
