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!

Save BIG on Cheap Closeout Picture Frames!

Everyone loves a good deal. And while most of our Closeouts tend to go from anywhere between 20-30% off, we also know that it can be incredibly easy to miss out on a good deal. This time, we decided to extend our sale to a week-long savings event. Not only will you save 10% on already-cheap and high-quality picture frames — you’ll have an entire week to save big on all of our closeout inventory!

Frame Closeouts allows you to pick between wood, premium wood, metal, poster and polystyrene frames.

This is perfect if you are looking for a large number of cheap frames and don’t really mind what series you are receiving.

Don’t forget to save 30% on  5×7 Walnut Wood frames on FrameCloseouts.com, either! Coupon Code: 57waln. Expires 4.21.2014.

Personalized Picture Frame Options

Create and preserve memories with Frame USA’s Personalization options

So, we all know that personalization is a huge factor when it comes to finding the perfect gift. Maybe you’re looking for a new piece of jewlery for your significant other, or looking to get something special engraved for your parents. Personalizing these items will provide a constant reminder of why you find them to be an extra-special part of your life.

Personalizing isn’t just about words, though. Using different colors, imagery and personal flair can mean just as much as words. So how can Frame USA help you with personalized picture frames?

Build A Frame:

Perhaps the best personalization feature on our website is the Build A Frame web application. Our app will walk you step-by-step through the custom framing process, whether you’d like to upload your own image, give us your own dimensions or pick an image from our wide selection of Posterservice images.

Create beautiful custom framing jobs in our Build A Frame web app. We’ll print your images, too.

 

Laser Engraving:

Engraving is a classic way of personalizing a wide variety of items. Literally anything with a wood or metal surface can be engraved with great effect. Our customers have been very impressed with the amount of detail our engraving machine can create, especially with our signature Engrave-It series. This is definitely the route to take if you’re commemorating a special event, remembering a wedding, or for anniversaries.

Engrave images and text — directly on the frame or on a metallic plate.

 

Unfinished Picture Frames:

Both our Unfinished and Decorate-It lines have the crafty folk in mind. These are great for both kids and adults alike, but you’ll definitely get your money’s work when you use these as kid’s craft projects. You can use all of your favorite crafting materials to make it, and a trip to your local art and craft store should inspire you to make some great artwork.

U-Frame Kits:

For when you want something that looks like it was professionally framed at a fraction of the cost, look no further than our U-Frame 1 and 2 kits. These require assembly upon arrival, but we promise it’ll take no more than 5 minutes to put together. We also include instructions on assembly (Just 3 easy steps). Then all that’s left is to drop in your art!

Metal Picture Frames
Our sturdy, easy-to-assemble U-Frame kits are great for that “Custom Framed” look… Without the price of custom framing.

Shadow Box Frames as Fine Art – Exploring Dioramas

Shadow Box Frames and Fine Art Assemblage

Recently, we’ve seen a great shift between the realms of 2D and 3D art. Not quite paintings and not quite sculptures, these art pieces are more of an assemblage of 3D objects meant to be viewed on a 2D-plane. You may have even made these in school at some point.

Today, we are talking about dioramas.

Not your average middle school project

While popular for school projects, this Alice in Wonderland piece is proof that dioramas are every bit as capable of being fine art.

 

Before you get skeptical, these are anything but your average diorama. Shadow box frames are typically used to hang sports jerseys and personal memorabilia, and custom framers are great at arranging these objects to fit whatever the customer may need. Using shadow boxes for fine art, however, requires much more creativity and artistic know-how. You will need to experiment and try different methods of mixed media and sculpture to get the effect you’re looking for.

Don’t be afraid to experiment, though! Experimentation is how you become more advanced in your art, and trying a slew of different things is necessary to become more creative and technically skilled. Find our shadow box frames here to get started!
