A picture frame is a decorative edging for a picture, photograph or paining. The purpose of a frame is to protect the art, aid in hanging, make it easier to display and it’s intended to enhance the art.
Art Frames are typically gilded or highly ornate and are the prime choice when you’re trying to make a statement with a piece of art. Art frames aid in drawing a persons eye to your artwork, but you have to be cautious when selecting an art frame because some are so over the top and fancy that they can overpower the art and take focus away from what you want to be displayed.

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.

How do I know what size frame to order? It’s a question as framers that we hear all the time, and most times, the answer is easy.
All of our picture frames at Frame USA are based on the inside dimensions. Therefore, if you have a 12×16 image, you will want to order a 12×16 picture frame.
Awesome, that was easy, right? But what if I want matting around my image? Overall, that answer is pretty easy too. Adding matting to a frame will increase the overall dimensions of your frame. For example, if you have a 12×16 image and want a mat around it, your next decision is how much matting should I add? Our recommendation is the smaller the image size, the less matting you should add. Ultimately though matting is a personal preference so whatever you prefer or think will look best is the answer.
For a 12×16 image, I would personally recommend about 1.5” of matting. This will make the frame size 15×19 now. But wait, I thought adding 1.5” of matting would make the frame size, 13.5×17.5? That is a common misconception that we hear. However, to have 1.5” of matting on each side of your image, you are actually adding 3” vertically and 3” horizontally. So 12 + 1.5 +1.5 = 15 and 16 + 1.5 + 1.5 = 19.
Our feature offers just a few simple steps to getting you the perfect picture frame.
Through this feature, you can order your frame, matting, everything you would want!
Now what if you have a custom size image, but do not want matting? At Frame USA, we make that easy too. Almost all of our frame options: wood picture frames, metal picture frames, poster frames, etc. offer a custom option. First, select the frame you would like to order. Then once on that individual series page, you will find this:
Here you can type in the size you need (your image size), change the color accordingly, and select your quantity. Our website offers lower prices on custom frames when you order more than one, so you will see all pricing options listed here. Naturally since we are more efficient the more of the same picture frame we produce for you, we pass those savings right on to you here.
So as you can see, figuring out what frame size you need can be quite simple. However, framing can be difficult for some so if you still have questions, please contact our Customer Service team at 1-800-577-5920 or via email at [email protected].

May 4th is widely recognized as a day to celebrate all things Star Wars! While not an official holiday, this date was selected due to the play on the big Star Wars catchphrase “May the Force be with you.”
In 2007 the city council of Los Angeles established May 25th as Star Wars Day because it marked the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film, A New Hope.
That mere fact doesn’t deter any die-hard Star Wars fan from recognizing May 4th as the actual holiday. In Canada they went so far as to organize a celebration of Star Wars Day, with the first annual event taking place in 2011. Then to double down on May 4th as the unofficial but official celebratory day, The Walt Disney Company has hosted many Star Wars gatherings and events annually on this day.
Head on over to our sister site Posterservice and browse our selection of Star Wars posters. While you’re at it we have a sale on ALL of our poster frames going on right now. So once you select your favorite Star Wars poster, get it framed beautifully and receive 10% off with Coupon Code: Cinco10.
