In a recent New York Times piece, a new method of artistic gallery display was announced: a digital canvas.
Not to be confused with the digital picture frame, a digital canvas seems to be the new way to display artwork for gallery presentation when displaying artwork created digitally. This also works very well for photography!
Will it ever replace the picture frame in the world of art galleries? We say “of course not!” But it is certainly a great new way to show off your digital art, and could potentially pair beautifully with something like our Shadow Boxes or In-Depth frames. You can find out more on Electric Object’s website.

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.

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!)

If you follow our Paper.li news feed, we try to share some great advice in the art and framing community throughout the week. You can find this online publication here.
One article that stood out to use was and article called “Framing Artwork”, a robust and long-winded article on art becoming more than the act of creating art, but also involving labor and democracy, that art makes up more than creative and technical processes but includes labor as any other job does.
We happen to agree. The author also cites examples from Warhol, who was the first artist to relate to society’s conformity and democratic approach to art. To quote the author,
“Art is not simply the place where desires get expressed and monetized. It is also where desires get fulfilled and monetized. There will always be a remainder, and that remainder is the libidinal investment in art as a space different from other spaces, and in creativity as a more expansive ideal of production. The persistence of this remainder demands a critique of artistic labor that goes beyond the terms offered by political economy, a critique that takes seriously those desirous investments that become entwined with—but are not reducible to—art’s institutions and economic engines.”
We think it’s good to keep this in mind when framing artwork. Art is most complete through hard work and working to improve yourself, and of course, working to make your work ready for display. Don’t be afraid to go the extra mile! We also offer custom framing services if you need help along the way.
A limited number of these were sent out to the big names in gaming media, like Game Informer and IGN. We’re told that IGN still has this framed print in their main lobby! Telltale Games has ordered from us again as of a few weeks ago for their appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). We’re excited to see what they come up with this time!
Whether you’re setting up a gallery, putting together a nice gift for your customers or looking for a creative advertising strategy, Frame USA aims to give you unlimited possibilities. For a free quote on any of our items, feel free to fill out our Custom Quote form here.
Stars from “The Bachelor” recently entered a competition to break the world record for “The World’s longest on-screen kiss.” Fortunately for contestants Sean Lowe and Lesley Murphy, they were able to last three minutes and 22 seconds – a whole seven seconds longer than the previous record.
This scored them both an unforgettable memory and their very own framed award from the Guinness book of World Records. (We don’t like to toot our own horn, but the framing job is pretty amazing too!)
We currently sell Silver Glory Metal Frames and Blue Mats to the Guiness Book of World Records. Our frame was given to the bachelor and his current date on the show.
National Kissing Day is an international holiday which originated in the United Kingdom. It wasn’t until recently that the holiday as been adopted worldwide making July 6th the International Kissing day. It is believed that many people have forgotten the simple joy and pleasure of kissing (even just kissing for kissing’s sake). Kissing can be an enjoyable experience! Let’s tuck away the social formalities and “romantic gestures” for a moment and go give someone a kiss.
We challenge everyone to give a kiss (or at least a big ol’ hug) to a friend and/or loved one this week.
We celebrate kissing day today by featuring a romantic kiss in Venice.
Check out our current featured poster of the week: Weezer. Here is some interesting background information on the band (from their website):
Weezer has been around since 1992, and in its present form since September 2001. Weezer consists of Rivers Cuomo, primary songwriter, lead vocals and guitar, Patrick Wilson, drums, guitar, vocals, and production whiz, Brian Bell, guitar and keyboards and vocals, and Scott Shriner, bass, vocals, and keyboards. Whether on the stage or in the studio its not uncommon to see just about anyone in the band playing just about anything they can get their hands on. Its also not uncommon to see some pretty wacky stuff go down both on stage and on the web. Weezer has sold over 10 million albums and has played thousands of shows to date. Weezer is also known for its pioneering (1994-2000) use of the internet to reach its fanbase, innovative videos and funny and/or quite strange behind the scenes footage, as well as its extremely passionate and devoted fans. They also make a mean cheese sandwich.
