How to Choose the Right Type of Picture Frame

There is a perfect frame for every picture! Well, not really. With the plentiful options that we have to offer, we are sure you could create multiple splendid looks for your pictures and posters. However, we do understand that there could be different factors playing when choosing a picture frame like the overall theme and color of your space or it could just be a matter of personal taste – depicting the appeal you wish to create. So, just to make things simpler for you, we have a few suggestions/looks you could try out which we think work great.

  • If you have a really clean and modern image, you could make it fancy by using  gold frames and you could possibly go further by adding double layered matting with gold edgings on the side to give it a rich look.

  • For highlighting the image/poster, choosing a frame color matching any color from the image/poster also works great. This very well comes out is an image submitted to us by our customer where he has used Victorian Walnut with Gold to frame his posters. The gold lining on the inside really adds to the impact of the image. Any frame with a color from the picture and a narrow lining of a different color would work well are what we would say. Also, our Victorian Series goes well with historic pieces adding a rich look to it. ‎

  • If you want to give your posters a really modern and sleek look, you could use a narrow metal frame in glossy colors. You could either choose to add a mat or just choose to go without it to give a floating look. A narrow black metal also works well for any poster, and if the poster has darker shades, adding a thin white matting really makes it stand out.

  • For Art posters, a white frame with a clean white matting also works very well. This directs all the focus on the poster.

  • You could pick and choose different color and shapes of mats to play and see the impact on your image. If you are choosing a colored mat then revealing a portion of the print’s white border gives the illusion of a double mat. You could also go for double matting with a dark wide one as the first layer and a lighter color as the narrow second layer

  • For natural scenes and outdoor images, you could use narrow metal frames of a contrasting color to give it a modern impact. Also, our Barn Wood frames give it an unfinished an raw look if that is the theme you are playing by or you could also go with the different options of classic wooden frames and we assure you would never go wrong with those

“We love our Barn Wood Frames. It works very well for our landscapes and wildlife.” – Julia Held (Customer)

  • Another option for posters is a shadow-box frame which makes it appear more like real art.

FrameUSA.com and Posterservice.com are sister companies and this is one of the main reasons why!  FrameUSA.com offers a wide range of frames that are perfect for your new posters.  Check out their full selection today at http://www.frameusa.com/poster-frames!

Movie Poster Frames

A lot of people have questions on the best way to frame a movie poster.  While movie poster frames can range in size, the two most common sizes for movie posters are 24×36 and 27×40.  Lucky for you, we have a wide range of movie posters and frames for those posters.

First, you need to pick out the perfect poster.  Posterservice.com offers a wide range of options, with many top movie poster choices including Super Hero Movies, Star Wars, Terminator and more!

Here are just a few of these great options:

Movie Poster Frames
Movie Poster Frames -Terminator
Movie Poster Frame
DC Comics – Movie Poster Frame
Movie Poster Frames
Movie Poster Frames – Marvel Comics
Movie Poster Frame
Movie Poster Frame – Space Movies
Classic Movie Poster Frames
Classic Movie Poster Frames

Once you’ve found that perfect poster, you need a movie poster frame.

  • 24 x 36 Poster Frame – This is the most common poster frame size (average poster size) and generally the size that standard posters are made. This is the ideal size for concert and novelty posters to hang around your room or house.
  • 27 x 40 Poster Frame – This is the standard movie poster frame size for typical movie posters (occasionally you’ll find them sized 27 x 41) making it perfect for officially licensed movie posters.

In case you were wondering, all frames can be used to frame posters no matter the type or style. Just remember when your choosing picture frame sizes best suited for your needs, always (and I can’t stress that enough) measure your image first. Our frame sizes are based on inside dimensions, meaning if you have an image that is 8 x 10 and you do not intend on using the mat, you would want to order an 8 x 10 frame. Now if you have an 8 x 10 image and do want to include the mat in the framing process, you have to order a larger frame size to accommodate this.

Grey Picture Frames

Grey Picture Frames are hot right now due to their versatility. The color is relaxed and subtle, and it can be dressed up or down depending on how you intend to use the color. Because of this, we’ve brought you two great new options of Grey Picture Frames.

Gray pairs best with:

Red

Decorative Picture Frames
Decorative Picture Frames

Our Decorate-It Series is an unfinished decorative picture frame with a flat profile that comes in 3 different widths (1.5″, 2″ or 3″). It is created especially for crafting. You can paint it, glue on it, and use a wood burning pen, anything you can think of to decorate the frame.

Additionally, our Unfinished Series is another unfinished decorative picture frame (as the name might suggest). Like the Decorate It, the Unfinished series comes in 3 different profiles, but these are more intricate with some scoops and beveling in the frame. This picture frame could be painted and decorated in a classy way to help enhance the ascetics of your art.

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.

Large Frame with Frame USA

Large Frame Sizes

Large Frame Sizes
Large Frame Sizes

It is important for us to clarify how our sizes work in general. In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized large frame sizes overall. These large frame sizes cover a wide range and our most popular sizes are:

16 × 20

16x20 Large Frames
16×20 Large Frames

Our 16 × 20 Picture Frame is a great size frame because you can make it a highlight piece on your wall, or part of a mixture with other frames to form a collage on your wall. Our 16 × 20 frames include an off white mat for an 11×14 image. This option provides just over 2” of matting on each side of your image. This is also a perfect size to go with when using wider picture frames.

18 x 24

18x24 Large Frames
18×24 Large Frames

This is the quintessential frame size for hanging advertisements in a lobby or venue, or just about any metropolitan area where people can see the image and read the words without having to be directly in front of the poster.

24×36
24x36 Large Frames
24×36 Large Frames

This is the most common poster frame size (average poster size) and generally the size that standard posters are made. This is the ideal size for concert and novelty posters to hang around your room or house. Therefore if you are looking to frame a poster for a dorm room, your office or house, or to give as a gift, this is the perfect picture frame size for you. For those with the “go big or go home” mindset, you may want to aim for this size or larger. If you have a 24×36 or larger poster, we definitely recommend a frame to keep your art scratch-free and to highlight the print as a whole.

27 x 40

27x40 Large Frames
27×40 Large Frames

This is the standard movie poster frame size for typical movie posters (occasionally you’ll find them sized 27 x 41) making it perfect for officially licensed movie posters.
