Let’s Talk About Posters: Rack Track Program

After being in business for over 30 years we have come to a conclusion: College students really like posters (shocking, right?). While the college students are off soaking up the sun and definitely not thinking about calculus or physics (for the most part…), the employees at their colleges are starting to get everything ready for the NEXT school year. Part of that preparation includes the purchasing of their customers favorite things: POSTERS! That’s where we come in, one of the busiest time of the year for Posterservice is starting this week. We have put together a whole bunch of packages that are 100% made for bookstores and other stores that market to college students. We thought we would kick off the back to school season with a video starring none other than your favorite poster guy: David Estep.

David is the go to person when it comes to knowing  what all the programs we have to offer our customers when it comes to posters. One of our most worthwhile program is our Rack Track program. I won’t try to sum up what this program is all about — because it’s much more entertaining to watch a video about it!

Cancer Sucks. In this day and age this statement has gone from simply an opinion to a cold hard fact. There are countless of different organizations out there that have made it their mission to finding a cure and helping those affected by this awful disease have a better life.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) began in 1949 by Rudolph and Antoinette De Villiers. The De Villiers were the parents of  Robert “Robbie” Roesler De Villiers who five years before the start of the organization had been taken by Leukemia. Since their start LLS has donated more than $1 billion to research to advance therapies and save lives.

LLS Charity

Today, LLS is known as the largest voluntary health organization that is dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

This organization has adopted a unique philosophy that couldn’t be said any better:

Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday there will be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? With LLS’s research partnerships and collaborations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, patients support services and advocates working for blood cancer patients everywhere, someday is today.

We have chosen Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as our charity of the month for June. For every purchase of picture frames made on our website we will be donating $0.75 to this organization.  But don’t let the charity stop there, you have the opportunity to help out the countless of individuals fighting for their lives.

Barnwood Picture Frames–Three Brand Series

Barnwood Picture Frames

One of the most popular product that we have ever carried at Frame USA has been our Barnwood Series. This frame is fantastic made of reclaimed wood from actual barns. We had a hard time ever keeping any of it on our shelves. It was so popular that our manufacturer just couldn’t come up with the material that we need to make the frames. This series is currently out of stock until further notice which has caused some anger from our customers, and we hate making our customers angry!

So here is what we did, we added three new members of the Barnwood family to our line. We could never replace the original Barnwood series in the hearts of our company or our customers but we had to fill the void caused by the out of stock barnwood, and we think we did a pretty good job.

Let us know what you think of the brand new members of the barnwood series!

Let’s meet the new additions:

Appalchian Barnwood

Appalachian Barnwood

Out of the three new series, The Appalachian Barnwood Picture Frames most closely resembles the original barnwood color. This series has a natural rugged beauty unique to America’s heartland. This series like the original barnwood is effective in both modern homes as well as classic. The actual frame is a smooth profile that provides all the beauty of a barn without the splinters!

Back by popular demand our new and improved Farmhouse Barnwood series! This series comes in a white and a charcoal color and feature a 2″ wide flat profile. They are inspired by the look and feel of reclaimed barns.

May Charity of The Month: The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation

May Charity of the Month

I don’t think there is a single person alive that doesn’t enjoy a beautiful day in the sun. Sunlight makes you happy, it makes you feel better, it gives those that face harsh winters, hope, and there is a good chance that without proper protection it could kill you.

As a kid your mother would pin you down as you squirm and wiggle to slather on sunscreen to protect your precious skin. This wasn’t for her benefit, in fact if you ask her, I’m sure she will say it was her least favorite activity she did with you. As with many things in life, this is something that we all could learn from our mothers. Applying sunscreen, although an annoying task, is something that can save your life, especially for those that are fair skinned.

According to skincancer.og, each year in the US, nearly 5 million people are treated for skin cancer. The deadliest and fastest growing type of skin cancer out there is melanoma. There is a common misconception that melanoma is one of the easy cancers to get. That is definitely not the case in fact, one person dies of melanoma every hour, 57 minutes to be exact.

In 2010 that one person that tragically lost his battle to melanoma was a 24 year old young man named Andy Caress.

Andy loved the outdoors and was never far from a tennis ball and racquet. In August of 2008 he finished near the top of his age group in a mini triathlon, with open lake swimming followed by biking and a run. He was considered to be in the best physical shape of his life. He was the definition of a strong fighter.

In October of 2008, Andy Caress was diagnosed with melanoma. Although his activities changed, his fight never faltered. In the midst of treatment Andy created a foundation called Mela-KNOW-More. As he was getting radiation treatments, surgeries and bio-chemo therapy he was fighting to change the misconception of melanoma to the public.

Throughout his treatment he never lost his fight or his drive to help find a cure for melanoma, but unfortunately he was faced with an opponent that he could not beat and died peacefully August 4, 2010.

Mela-KNOW-More is now The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation, whose volunteer members are dedicated to continuing to pursue the mission of this amazingly strong young man.

“His mission is simple: ”My goal is that melanoma will never impact any person the way it has impacted me, and I will achieve my goal by educating the world about how melanoma may be prevented and identified.”’

The specific goals of The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation are consistent with Andy’s mission and include:

  1. Creating awareness about the seriousness of melanoma and that it affects all skin tones and races
  2. Educating the public about steps that can be taken to prevent melanoma
  3. Increasing opportunities for a cure for this deadly disease through work with leading melanoma and cancer research organizations
  4. “Wipe melanoma off the face of the planet” – in Andy’s words


Frame USA has joined in their fight and has selected this fantastic organization as our charity of the month for May.

Please consider donating $1 with your order of picture frames, so that this foundation can continue to wipe melanoma off the face of the planet.

April 2015

April Charity of the Month: Visionaries & Voices

April Charity of the Month

It has been an exciting past couple of weeks here in t the Frame USA offices, what with the basketball championship and a March madness type competition amongst the employees. As the excitement of both settles down we are reminded once again of a core value of Frame USA and Posterservice: Giving back.

In 2001, a unique idea was created. This idea was about an organization that would give members of the Cincinnati community with disabilities, an opportunity to make, market and celebrate their artistic talents. In 2003, this was no longer an idea but a full non-profit organization called Visionaries & Voices.

Visionaries & Voices holds a special place in our hearts over at Frame USA. They have been part of our team for 8 years. Using a corner of our warehouse, V&V opened up a satellite studio and started welcoming artists from Butler and Warren County to the new studio space.

The vision of this amazing organization is to:

“create a world in which artists with disabilities not only produce and share works of art, but are also given continuous opportunities to learn, develop professionally, collaborate, exhibit and celebrate with community members”

Visionaries & Voices started with a small group of artists and have now expanded to over 150 artists each week at their two studios. They provide studio space for artists to come and use materials they otherwise may not have access to. They then give those artists an opportunity to showcase that art in variety of exhibitions they host every year. One of their most popular exhibition is Double Vision. This is an art auction that gives V&V artists the opportunity to collaborate on a piece of art, with artists working in the regional arts community that will then be auction at the gala. The 6th annual Double Vision art auction is this Friday, April 10, from 6:30-11.

In celebration of the 8th year as part of our team, we have chosen V&V as our April Charity of the month.

Frame USA will donate $0.75 for every purchase of picture frames made on our website. As well as this donation our customers also have the option of donating one dollar when they check out online.

Your one dollar could be responsible in countless pieces of one of a kind artwork being created, will you help us spread beauty around the world?

If you would like to know more about Visionaries & Voices and the work they do or for tickets for their upcoming annual art auction gala, Double Vision, please visit their website at

After close games and difficult choices you have chosen the two series that will meet together for the first time to fight to the death to find out which one is the ultimate picture frame.

The Corporate Narrow picture Frame Series has been a favorite from the beginning winning the matches against Cafe Narrow, Architect, AND Glory Metal by a landslide. It’s easy to see why this frame has made such an impact on our customers! This series is quite possible the most versatile line of frames on The moulding is classic and the colors are modern and fresh.

The success of the Shadowbox Showcase Picture Frame Series came as a bit of a shock to folks around the office right from the start. The first win came against the more popular traditional series, Shadowbox Elite. This was the start of the Cinderella story of this series. The fans of this series are going to really have to step up their game if they want to see it in the winners circle.
