What I frame in my Home: Beth Kuhnell Posterservice Licensing

I think it’s a fair question to ask what an employee of a great frame and poster company would choose to hang on the walls of their own home, I mean we are the experts, right? (Fun fact: We are!) Of course, what attracted me to this company in the first place was my love for art, so of course I also enjoy decorating my own apartment. I would like to share what I’ve chosen to frame on my own walls, whether it came from Frame USA and Posterservice, (which have obviously been great enablers in terms of what I choose hang up), photos of my own, or even my own artwork.

It’s tough to choose the favorite thing I have up, but ultimately I would have to pick my wedding photos, (Okay, so maybe it’s not that tough) which I had framed at our retail store earlier this year. They came out amazing and I get compliments on these all the time.

Above our fireplace (slash beer shrine) I have a copy of a Cincinnati skyline print that we gave away to customers and employees here at Frame USA to celebrate our retail store grand re-opening back in 2013. Besides being a stunning shot of my home city, this image is also pretty special to me personally, as I was the one

who communicated with the artist Keith Allen to get him on board from the project. Below the mantle you’ll also notice the license plate from my last car, which sadly was totaled last year (RIP Car), luckily I came out of that fine, but decided to keep a little memento, because why not?

Speaking of beer… here is the arrangement we have behind our couch in the living room. (Noticing a theme?). My husband and I really love the craft beer theme, and even homebrew our own beer.

I also don’t mind framing some of my own artwork, including one of my pieces from my senior thesis project

at UC – DAAP. This piece, “Fibers” is illustrated on stained wood!

Another drawing of mine is hanging in our computer room, and sports a wicked awesome wood picture frame courtesy of the Frame USA custom framing team.

This isn’t technically on a wall, but on the door to our bedroom. I cut this Legend of Zelda logo out of contact paper and placed it on the door. I really enjoy creating unique wall art like this.

The next one I guess you could call a combination of my own artwork, and a Frame USA/Posterservice project. I designed this ‘Shots!’ poster for the Posterservice line in 2014, since then it has taken off and can even be found in Spencer Gifts stores throughout the nation! So naturally I had to have a copy of my own.

While that is not everything I have on my walls, those are for sure some of my favorites! (And some of them would not be there had I not started my career at this company.) I think the

best rule to follow when choosing what to put on your walls is, have FUN!

Metal Picture Frames

Make Your Business Shine with Metal Picture Frames!

Whether you work in an office, a restaurant a garage or a factory, you’re going to have things hanging on the walls. Inspirational “Successories” posters, a  copy of your drink menu, safety guidelines and certificates, or even just prints to spruce up your decor. This isn’t a dorm room where you can just tack them to the wall, this is your business. You need nice picture frames to hang your art and photos in. You don’t necessarily want plastic poster frames but maybe you’re also not looking for wood picture frames either–you want something more sleek and modern. A perfect solution for your framing needs would be metal picture frames.

Metal picture frames are a great way to show off your business’s wall hangings. There are many benefits to choosing metal frames. For one thing, they’re versatile when it comes to styling. They have slim profiles giving them a sleek, modern look that would be at home in any office setting. Most come in a shiny or “flat” finish so you can decide how much attention you want drawn to the image being framed. You can choose a flat finish frame if you have neutral images that you want to blend into the overall decor, or you can go with shiny if you want to make sure people’s eyes are being caught and focused on your piece. Another benefit to metal picture frames is that they’re lightweight. They’re easy to move around and wall mount. In addition to their lightness, metal frames are also sturdy. Another consideration that is specific to food-service type businesses is that metal picture frames are easily cleaned. If you’ve got pictures hanging up at your tables, food particles can easily find their way up there. With metal frames it’s a snap to just wipe them down and keep them fresh and sparkling. The same goes for a garage where dust and grease are omnipresent. A good scrub with a damp cloth will have metal frames looking like new.

Metal I Picture Frame
Metal I Blue

At Frame USA we have several different styles of metal picture frame, each one having its own profile and color options. Our most basic and popular metal frames are our Metal I and Metal II series. These frames have the same profile– a 3/8″ width with a rounded face–but differ in color choices and finish. Metal I has the shiny finish with the more basic colors–white, blue, red gold and silver.

Metal II Contrast Gold
Metal II Contrast Gold

Metal II has the more flat, “brushed” finish with more elegant colors like bronze, old world and blue pewter, contrast silver, among others.

Let’s say you like the look of the Metal I and Metal II but you want something a little thicker and heavier. Our Heavy Metal picture frames give you the same rounded face but with a 5/8″ width and a heavier build. It comes in four colors, shiny black, flat black, gold and silver and is ideal for more labor oriented shops that need to display safety regulations and certifications.

Heavy Metal Black

Maybe you aren’t a huge fan of the rounded face, though. You want something flat and you want some different colors choices for your frames. We’ve got you covered

Glory Metal Purple
Glory Metal Purple

there too. Our Glory Metal picture frames have a 5/8″ profile with a flat face, and in addition to the normal black, silver, gold and bronze also features a purple, evergreen and a steel grey. These picture frames would do well holding menus and specials or even posters in a theater lobby.

All of these frames come complete with glazing, backing and hanging hardware, all pre-assembled. “That’s all fine and good,” you say, “but I’ve already got a guy that cuts plexiglass for me and I use special backing. Do you have something I can just put together myself?” As a matter of fact we do! Our U-Frame-It kits come in two different styles; a 7/8″ depth and a 1″ depth, both feature the same colors. These include two frame sections in a certain size (so if you want to build an 11×17 you would buy one kit of 11″ and one kit of 17″) that start at 8″ and go all the way up to 51″. You can mix and

match to build any combination of sizes for your framed art.

So when you’re thinking about dressing up your business and you’re wondering what kind of frames you want to use, consider metal picture frames. They’re a solid solution that rocks!

Summer Vacation Photo

One Last Summer Craft: Cheap, easy, fun project before the kids go back to school!

Summer vacation is almost over. For some of you there may be a scant few days left before the kids head back to school. You feel like you’ve done it all; amusement parks, road trips, the zoo, the aquarium. You’ve played games together, seen movies together, the whole gamut of activities has been run. You’re all a little tired but you don’t want to just sit around and do nothing, but you don’t have a lot of time (and you don’t want to spend a lot of money). What can you do?

A fun and

Decorate-It 1.5"
Decorate-It 1.5″

relatively easy activity is decorating unfinished picture frames to commemorate all the special things you and your kids did over the break. If you’re lucky enough to be home with your children over the summer, you know that it’s fleeting and you want to have something that you, and they, can hold on to. At Frame USA we have a frame that is specifically made to be crafted and decorated. It’s called the Decorate-It frame and it comes in 3 widths (1.5″, 2″ and 3″–for when you need a lot of room–).

The decorate-it is made from real, unfinished wood so that it can be painted on, glued on, have wood-burning pens used on it–anything you can think of. In addition to coming in three different widths, the decorate it picture frame also comes in a ton of standard

sizes, including 8×10, 11×17 all the way up to 24×36. But hey, maybe you bought some nifty piece of art at the Summerfest art fair that you all went to and it’s not a

Decorate-It 2"
Decorate-It 2″

standard size. That’s okay because the decorate it also comes in custom sizes as well.

You can sit down with the kids, take your decorate it frames, and maybe pick out pictures together of the fun stuff you did over the summer. Maybe when you were running around the museum, or at the bacon festival. You can paint the frame with your favorite colors and even glue decorations onto it. Did you happen to keep the movie tickets from when you took the kids to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron”? You can glue those to the frame that has the selfie you guys took together in the lobby that day. And even if you didn’t take a lot of photos (because you were too “in the moment” to worry–a good thing to be) you can sit down with the kids and talk about their favorite memories from the summer and have them draw pictures of those days. Paint the frame to match the weather that was happening (lots of blues if it was rainy,

Decorate-It 3″

oranges and reds if it was hot and sunny). This way you can sit and enjoy reliving those memories with your children as they talk about how much fun they had at the splash park and the time you saw a skunk on the nature trail. And afterwards, you’ll have a beautiful reminder of each and every one of those little moments.

So get out your paints and feathers and glitter and beads, gather the kids around the table, on one of these last long afternoons before school starts. And don’t forget to order some unfinished, decorate-it wood picture frames from Frame USA, to help you get every last ounce of quality time you can.

Fancy Frame

LET’S GET FANCY

Iggy Azalea isn’t the only one who can get fancy around here. Occasionally we all want to show off with a bit more pizazz and panache. This applies to our home and office decor as much as it does to our clothes, and specifically, the frames we hang. Sometimes, depending on the art we’re framing, a modern or rustic look just isn’t enough. Those styles are both very fashionable and can be utilized more broadly, but when the picture is something extra special, you have to go big or go home with your picture frame.

For those art pieces that you want to treat like royalty, Frame USA has a number of picture frames that are ornate enough to give

Modena Antique Gold

you that “wow” factor, without overpowering the image it holds. Perhaps you’ve picked up something at an antique shop, like an old map, or print. It’s unique but not something that holds a lot of sentimental value (yet). A good choice might be our Modena frame. These frames have an “aged” look and are available in “Antique Gold,” “Antique Bronze,” and “Antique Silver.” They’re perfect for something that has an air of history to it.

But maybe what you need is something with a bit more grandeur. A picture frame that doesn’t just compliment the art, but

Presidential Aged Pecan
Presidential Aged Pecan

also tells people how important that art is to you. Family portraits or pictures of loved ones who are no longer with us deserve to be framed in something more regal. Our Presidential picture frame is an excellent choice for these kinds of pictures. The Presidential series has a 2″ wide profile with a steeply sloped outer edge and curled “rope” along the inner edge. It comes in three colors, “Aged Gold,” “Aged Bronze,” and “Aged Pecan.” It’s a picture frame that demands respect for both itself and the artwork cradled within it.

“Both of those are beautiful, American made picture frames,” you might be saying, “but what I have needs something that says, ‘all eyes on me.'” You want a frame with a lot of intricate detail that stops just short of going over the top. For the original watercolor you commisioned or the limited edition print, signed and numbered by the artist, you want people to “ooooh,” and “aaaah.” We have you covered with two different frames. The most ornate in our collection. The first is our Napoleon picture frame. The Napoleon, much like it’s namesake,

Napoleon Antique Gold
Napoleon Antique Gold

is a conqueror, taking charge of any room it’s placed in. It combines the beading of the Modena with the rope of the Presidential and adds a flourish with a striking inner scoop. Like the other two series it has three colors, “Antique Gold,” “Antique Silver,” and “Black with Gold.” However, if you want to crank the fanciness level up to 11 while still staying tasteful, we have one more picture frame for you to consider. For maximum drama try our Victorian picture frame. With a delicate intertwining of carved embellishments, the Victorian

Victorian Walnut with Gold
Victorian Walnut with Gold

stands above the rest as a frame that leaves no doubt that you are making a deliberate, bold statement. Luxurious and maybe a bit aloof (but still alluring) the Victorian frame comes in “Antique Gold, and “Walnut with Gold.”

So even if your usual style is more low key and laid back, it doesn’t hurt to get a little fancy every now and then. After all, you deserve it.

Appalachian Barnwood Grey

Barnwood is Beautiful!

Sleek and modern styling for decor has been in fashion for a while now, but recently a return to a more rustic approach has been gaining popularity. A lot of people are finding that the homespun, outdoorsy look helps them relax better after they’ve spent a long day at an office where the surroundings are all straight lines and neutral colors. This has led to a boom in the business of “reclaimed” wood–wood taken from demolished farmhouses, outbuildings and barns–to create furniture and decorations. And of course, here at Frame USA, our interest lies in one particular form of home decoration: Wood picture frames.

There are different kinds of reclaimed or “barnwood” styles on the market. The most well known is the kind that is actually reclaimed from those old farm buildings. The planks are taken away and stripped of paint and checked for errant nails and splinters before being collected and sent to the artisans and manufacturers who will create picture frames out of it. What lends it so much charm are the imperfections that come with it. The slightly warped or uneven edges, small knotholes and chips. This lets you know that it is real and has its own unique history.  The one problem with truly reclaimed barnwood is that, sometimes the imperfections can be too imperfect. It’s impossible to catch every knothole that’s just a little too big, and sometimes those chips are big chunks to noticeable to overcome.

To get around that, some suppliers have created a barnwood look, made from regular fresh lumber, but distressed to give it that reclaimed, country look. This ensures that, while the style is reminiscent of true barnwood (sometimes impossible to tell from a distance) it has a more consistend finish for those who are looking for a material that’s easier to work with.

At Frame USA, we currently have two different barnwood style frames that are made in the USA. Both of these are of the second, barnwood-style type (though we are planning on carrying the true reclaimed barnwood frames again in the near future–we’ve had great success with them). The first kind is our Appalachian Barnwood picture frames which are the closest to our old style reclaimed wood frames.

Appalachian Barnwood Grey

These come in four different colors (Grey, Whitewash, Rustic Black and Rustic Brown) and all of our standard sizes up to 24×36. They have the distressed and “stripped” look of true barnwood and feature a “double frame” style build. These are ideal for putting up in a den, family room or living room.

Our other current style of barnwood frames is our Farmhouse Barnwood series. These have a simpler build, with a flat profile and come in two different colors, white and charcoal. These picture frames also have a distressed finish, and with their simple profile

Farmhouse Barnwood White

would go well in a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom (though either of these wood frames would work perfectly in any room of your house).

So if you have photos and art you want to hang in frames that remind you of a time when things moved a little slower and lives were a little less hectic, think about picking up one of our barnwood frames. True beauty that’s found within imperfection.

August means Back to School!

It’s still hot, it’s still summer, but now that August has rolled around the kids’ vacation days are numbered as the start of a new school year looms on the horizon. A new school year means new pictures and art from your student and new pictures and art means new picture frames.

School photos are nice to keep because they show how much your child has grown since they started way back in kindergarten. If you have the wall space, a fun idea is to frame

them in order to show that progression. What are good picture frames for this kind of project? A wood picture frame is always the way to go for your 8×10 school pictures. Nothing too fancy, something versatile that will enhance the pictures instead of detracting. I would suggest our Architect series. It’s a  real wood picture frame that comes in a number of colors. It’s slim and attractive and has a nice homey feel to it.

But what about the kids’ art? It’s fun to see those early drawings where they’ve done a stick-person family portrait in front of a house made up of a square with

Colori Large Orange
Colori Large Orange

a triangle on top. They may not ever get much further than that artistically or perhaps they do develop a talent and their art becomes amazing. Either way, you’ll want to preserve and display some of these pictures. For the early school years art pieces I would suggest a fun colorful series like our Colori. Colori comes in both a wide and a narrow profile and is available in bright vibrant colors like orange, red, yellow and blue. It’s available in standard sizes, typically 8.5×11 and 11×17 but goes all the way up to 24×36. As your child gets further along and their talent emerges, you might want to consider a more mature frame to hang their masterpiece with. The Executive is a great wood picture frame that comes in rich, warm colors like Library Mahogany

and Burgundy (there are 6 different colors). It’s a high end but inexpensive frame to proudly show off your student’s best artwork. It’s also a good frame at graduation time for diplomas and certificates.

Your kids’ school years go by surprisingly fast and with framing their photos and art, you’ll always have something to cherish and remind you of how special they are.

Picking Poster Frames: A Newbie’s Guide

Posters are a great way to punch up any room and inject it with some of our own style and identity. Movie poster, music poster, art prints, there’s all kinds of choices you can make. But once you have your posters unrolled and in your house, what’s the best way to display it? There are as many different kinds of poster frames and framing options as there are kinds of posters. What’s the best one to hang your brand new Led Zeppelin or Resevoir Dogs poster? At Frameusa.com we have some great solutions to your poster frame need.

posterframe_silverComplete
Basic Poster Frames

First, you need to know what kind of poster you’re hanging and how important it is to you. Is this just a simple 11×17 boy band poster for your niece’s birthday that she’ll outgrow in two years or so? Maybe you’re looking for a cheap picture frame, something that goes above and beyond just handing her a rolled poster to tape onto the wall, but that is inexpensive. We have three options that are meant for this situation. Our Corrugated Posterframe, Foamcore Posterframe and  Hardboard Posterframe.

These three frames are our basic poster frames. They have four mylar frame sides with mitered corners that “slide” or “snap” to the backing and styrene to hold the poster frame together. You put your poster on the backing, put the styrene on top of them and slide your sides on. It’s very easy and quick. You can choose from three different backings as well, which are the corrugated cardboard, foamcore and hardboard. The cardboard is the most inexpensive option but not as durable or long lasting as the foamcore or hardboard (the hardboard material is masonite). These frames come in a variety of colors and sizes.

DeluxePosterframe_black
Deluxe Poster Frame

Maybe you’re not framing a poster for your niece though. Maybe you’re putting motivational posters in frames for your office. You need a large quantity of 24×36 posterframes to show off your inspirational images and they need to look nice but at a cheap picture frame price. For this kind of project I’d suggest our Deluxe poster frames. They come in 3 colors (Black, Gold and Silver) and all of our standard sizes. The frame rails are made from polystyrene with a slim, rounded profile so they have a sleek, professional look. The posters inside can be easily changed out and these frames will not hurt your budget.

 

Budget Saver

Simply Poly

But you’re not giving gifts to a niece or hanging posters in your office. You’ve gotten yourself a vintage, limited edition Bob Marley poster. You still want a simple plastic poster frame but you want one that’s a little more physically substantial. For these pieces we recommend our Budget Saver or our Simply Poly.
These are both thicker moldings with a bit more heft and presence than the Deluxe or the basic Posterframes. The Budget Saver comes in black and cherry and has a gentle bevelled profile, whereas the Simply Poly comes in black and white and has a flat profile. These are ideal for your 24×36 movie posters and art prints. In fact the Simply Poly goes up to 27×41 for those hardcore movie fans out there who get the full size theater posters. Both of these are thick enough to use sawtooth hangers for hanging (unlike the Deluxe and basic Posterframes which have hanging tabs stamped into their backing).

So whatever kind of poster it is your framing–something somewhat transient that will soon be replaced or something you want on your living room wall for years–we have a poster frame to accomodate you at Frameusa.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Marc Allante

In today’s blog we’re going to spotlight an artist that we at Frame USA/Posterservice have had the pleasure of working with: Marc Allante. His print “Achilles” is one of our most popular posters and anytime we get new art from him we’re always pleased and excited.

Marc was born in Hong Kong and is currently based there where he is represented by the Avenue Des Arts gallery. He has lived in Sydney and London as well and it’s this blend of eastern and western cultures that informs his unique vision.

A self taught artist, Marc creates his images by combining traditional Chinese inks with European watercolor and pen techniques. He has a distinct style, often incorporating a paint drip and spatter look. His subject matter is varied with animals and architecture comprising much of his most striking work. In particular he has a way of capturing the energy and joy of birds in flight. He also incorporates silhouettes to create romantic imagery like his popular “Two Step.” 

He’s a versatile artist whose voice continues to change and develop in new and unexpected directions. Check him out at his website Marcallante.com to see his full portfolio and where he will be exhibiting. While you’re at it, follow him on Facebook and Twitter (@marcallanteart) .You can also come over to Posterservice.com and search “Marc Allante” or go to our Art Posters section to see the 24×36 posters we currently carry. If you are looking for art to put in picture framds that encompass beauty, color and joy, you’ve found it in Marc’s work.

Summer Vacation Means Photos!

The phrase, “Summer Vacation” packs a wallop of images, emotions and memories. You can almost smell the hot dogs cooking on the grill; hear the sound of a baseball hitting a bat and the roar of a crowd at the ballpark. You think back to running through the sprinkler on the lawn to cool off. You remember sticky ice cream melting  onto your hand as you hurry to finish your cone. But if your family ever went s away from home during the summer months, that’s probably what you think of the most when you hear “Summer Vacation.”

Road trips to the grand canyon, umbrellas and loungers on the beach, poorly erected tents in the woods; the vacation could have many different faces but their was always a pattern to the whole affair . Sing-alongs in the car the first hour maybe. The license plate game, snacks and sodas. Everyone getting along. At some point the novelty of being out and about wore off and people settled back into their habits of getting on each others nerves. But always with love, and through it all, you enjoyed sharing the experience with each other. It didn’t matter if you bickered here or there, you grew closer with every little delight and disaster. And while all of this was going on, someone was snapping pictures.

Every family seems to have at least one photo bug. Before the digital age they would have a clunky old Polaroid or Kodak hung around their necks on a strap. Cajoling everyone to, “say cheese,” and click-click-clicking away at the shutter button. Afterwards when you got home they’d get their spools of film developed and meticulously sort them and put them into an album maybe, or make a collage. These moments, captured forever on a piece of photo paper, become treasured family heirlooms. The tradition of vacation photos is as strong as any holiday tradition a family observes. It’s a way to preserve those moments for future generations and for those whose memory has maybe gotten fuzzy. They’re important.

So when you want to frame your vacation pictures, a sense of style should be considered. These are not just vacation photos, these are the ones important enough to take out of the album and put on the wall. The frame you choose will impact the way the picture is viewed.

A flat fronted profile is always a good way to go. Sleek, and versatile, you can really use them in any decor, whether it’s modern, country or shabby chic. Our corporate series of frame is a great example of this.

But let’s say you want something with a little bit of pizazz. Nothing ostentatious but with a little bit of design interest. A slim frame with a rounded face and maybe one beveled channel. Our Classic series comes in Black, walnut and cherry and can give it that extra little bit of oomph you’re looking for.

Whatever you decide, hang your summer vacation photos with pride. Let them remind you of the smells of grilling and the sounds of baseball. Let them transport you to those moments where you felt wonder alongside annoyance and love.

Thanks for the Memorabilia

With San Diego Comic-Con and the Major League Baseball All-Star-Game having both just wrapped up, it’s been a big couple of weeks for collectors of all kinds of memorabilia. Millions of dollars were spent, on posters, bobble heads, shirts, autographs, toys and items of every kind; all to be taken back home to be proudly displayed. A few of these may just be thrown here and there or shoved, forgotten on to bookshelves but serious collectors require serious displays. Frames, shadowboxes and wall shelves become the pillars of the monuments to their fandom.

Memorabilia is the common ground where comic book nerds and film geeks meet sports fans and music freaks. Collecting is a big business. In an increasingly digital age, people who are passionate about the things they love–the things that form part of their identity–want tangible examples that they can hold and touch. In a world where you can download any song, or image or movie or picture, it can be very satisfying to say, “I actually went to a place and bought this. I was with other people who love what I love and here’s a real souvenir of that.”

Depending on how much the items mean to the collector, the amount of money spent on memorabilia can go from a very small amount (one retailer has a vintage Princess Leia action figure for sale at $12.99) to what may seem unimaginable to a non-collector ($7.2 million for the original manuscript of Don McClean’s “American Pie” lyrics). When a collector spends that kind of money on something they want to preserve it and display it in the best way possible. There are nearly as many different kinds of displays for memorabilia as there are actual types and genres of collectibles. Some of these are ornate and expensive; huge, multi-tiered curio cabinets with non-glare, uv protected glass and humidity controls. Some may be hand carved wooden mantlepieces where a fan’s collection of the 1975 Cincinnati Reds baseball cards may sit, each one mounted to it’s own plaque. But after spending so much on the items, there are ways to display one’s collection without blowing out their bank account.

Frames and shadowboxes are great ways to show off your collectibles. For flat pieces like newspaper clippings, prints, posters, art and programs, wooden frames are great for hanging your piece. There are a lot of great frames at Frame USA that are perfect for this. Our Black and White series is a simple but elegant frame that will show off your piece without distracting from it.

But maybe what you’re trying to show off isn’t flat. Maybe you want your friends to ooh and ahh over your vintage 80’s original My Pet Monster doll. For 3 dimensional items, a Shadowbox is always a great way to show off collectibles that have a little more heft. We have three different shadowboxes that are perfect for this purpose. Our Shadowbox Elite is great for smaller items (action figures, lead painted figures, baseball card collections). Our Shadowbox Showcase has a bit more depth so your Lord of the Rings Mithril chainmail shirt and ring of power have room to breathe. And for your 12″ tall Tardis replica? Our 3.5″ deep Shadowbox Boxer is perfect. Sports fans need not feel left out. All of these shadowboxes are also great ways to display your jerseys, bobbleheads, game-balls and autographed items.

So show your collectibles with pride! Let everybody know that you’re a Dr. Who/Star Wars/Batman/Walking Dead/Avengers/Bengals/Metallica/Stanley Kubrick/Cavaliers/Disney fan. Frame up those pieces and let people know who you are.
