When it comes to Plaque Services in Cincinnati, OH, Frame USA Delivers.
A leading provider of temperature management equipment Cincinnati, Ohio recently came to Frame USA for a large plaque mounting job. This order highlighted the medical properties of the facility as well as the timeline of the company’s major events in science and expansion of their technology.

High-Quality, Cheap Picture Frames. All week long.
While we’re much better framers than we are athletes, we know that there’s no better satisfaction than saving money on a product you’ll use time and time again.
While frames aren’t necessarily going to be changed or go out of style often, these are great deals for small businesses or artists and photographers looking to stock up on a specific frame size.
If you haven’t been to Frame Closeouts lately, we’ve made some big changes over the last year. The site has been re-made, frames have been reorganized and separated into colors, and the prices have only gotten better. Be sure to stop by soon – this offer only lasts until July 2, 2014!
This narrow black picture frame has always been a favorite. Luckily, we have plenty of other great options!
As part of our efforts to keep customers aware of our frame product line, we’re going to be posting discontinued and brand-new products here as soon as we find out! Usually we love gushing about how beautiful and intricate our new frames are, but discontinued series are just as important if you’re particularly fond of a frame.
This time, our Tuxedo Narrow moulding has been discontinued by our vendors. One of our favorites, the Tuxedo Narrow is a black eco-friendly wood frame with a thin strip of shiny material along the inside that accents artwork with more of a focal point than your standard frame. Fortunately, our vendor still plans to keep Tuxedo Wide in stock, so if it’s the look you’re going for, be sure to check it out!
If the series appeal is the narrow profile, however, we would recommend our Black series. The narrow profile on our Black series is also angled, giving it a 3-dimensional look from afar that the Tuxedo series also offers. If you’d like help in finding out what would look best with your artwork, you can always email our sales team here and they will be glad to help!
For art, wall decor, humor posters and more, you won’t find a better selection for the price!
Posters and wall art have always been an important part of what we do at Frame USA, Inc. With framing being our primary expertise, we also know what looks good inside of those frames. From fine art and pop culture to “Spencer’s-style” humor, we keep a wide variety of imagery available to customers who want a one stop shop for wall art.
Some of our best sellers fall under the Education and Humor sections. Our specialty with posters includes our wholesale ordering, where you can buy a rack of posters and we’ll simply refill your order any time at a great rate! You can also find our hottest posters over on Amazon or eBay with options to frame or mount them on wood.
Pictured Above: An antique map of the USA. This of course being before the colonies were broken up into the states we know today.
Pictured below: The US Constitution. This is one of the most important documents to display for any history teacher, and it looks great as a 24×36 poster.
We’re not just about college humor and whimsy, however. Posterservice has always been at the top when it comes to pop culture and the biggest trends in entertainment. We’ve also launched a great campaign to find more art that our customers enjoy, still sticking to our roots with surrealness and progressive themes. Particularly relevant lately is our new HR Giger poster, featuring Giger’s own artwork for the Alien movie. (Ironically, we published this only days prior to his passing. A sad time indeed for those growing up loving his art and contributions to sci-fi!)

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.
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.
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.
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!
What are some clever ways that you personalize your items? Let us know!
Frame USA has been using a product called styrene—which is a plexiglass type material– in our larger picture frames since we began operations over 30 years ago.
For most of this time the styrene used in our picture frames has been purchased domestically from a large plastic manufacturer in the United States.
In the 4th quarter of 2013, this plastic manufacturer, through its distributor, came to us and let us know that they were raising the price of our styrene product by 67% over the first six months of 2014. This huge price increase came despite almost no increase in raw materials prices or resin increases. According to the sales manager at this manufacturer, “we believe the styrene product was undervalued in the marketplace” and this lead to the incredibly large 67% increase that is taking place.
“We want our customers to know that we are shocked at our vendor’s behavior which has lead to a major increases in our product prices effective today”, said Daniel P. Regenold, CEO of Frame USA. We are even more shocked that a vendor we have worked with for such a long time would take such negative action.
This increase in price is happening after consolidation in the clear styrene market took place in the last several years.
Frame USA is taking every step possible to find a more stable source of plastic material that will go in our picture frames in the future. We will not allow one company to artificially move the market price of material used in our American Made picture frames to the detriment of our customers. We are sorry about the need to increase our prices of our picture frames because of this unwarranted large raw material price increase.
We had a great turnout this year at the West Coast Art and Frame show in Las Vegas. Getting to meet with the nations best artists and framers was a great experience, and we were glad to share it with them!

Susan Monty Fine Art
“I am a fine artist specializing in equine art. I draw and paint whatever captures my eye, but horses will always be my favorite subject. I strive to capture a realistic, but artistic and expressive, likeness of my subjects.
As a lifelong horse lover, I am pleased to donate a portion of sales from my Second Chances series to Pure Thoughts, Inc. Horse & Foal Rescue (www.pthr.org) or New England Equine Rescues (www.newenglandequinerescues.com). Both of these groups have saved the lives of numerous horses, and I am proud to use my art to help. Many of the prints in my shop are from my Second Chances series, an ongoing project in which I paint portraits of rescued horses and tell their stories.
I am also passionate about saving America’s wild horse and burros. I have started a series of paintigs of these magnificent animals. Unless something is done to protect them, wild horses will only be seen in photos and paintings. I will donate a portion of all sales of these mustang paintings, cards, and prints to Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary (www.jersanctuary.org).”
