Gold Picture Frames

Black and Brown are two of the most popular colors for picture frames, but sometimes you want a frame that stands out a little more. Choosing a gold picture frame is a guaranteed way to make your art pop.

Gold picture frames look the best when paired with artwork that features a lot of warm colors. Warm colors are normally linked to daylight or sunset and consist of variations of red, yellow, brown, tan and orange. These colors are know to stimulate the audience and come across more active in artwork.

The Most Popular Poster Frame Sizes

We are often asked what our most popular poster frame sizes are:

  • 11 x 17 Poster Frame – Perfect poster size frame for framing a poster in a child’s room, your office at work or other small areas such as a den, livable attic or other similar spaces.
  • 18 x 24 Poster Frame – 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 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.

Black Picture Frames

Black picture frames are not only our most requested picture frames but they are the most popular color frames due to their versatility. Placing a black frame around your artwork will immediately make it look more polished an professional.  These frames can make colors pop without overpowering the image and will make the art standout when placed on an all white wall.

Not only color, but black picture frames obviously pair extremely well with black and white photography. Black and white photography features images in black, white and assorted shades of gray, this version of photography is popular due to the old time feel it can add to images ass well as the fact that if you take a picture in color and the colors don’t pop, you can make it a black and white image and it will be transform into an impressive picture.

Black frames work well with with just about everything and their versatility can make living spaces and artwork look more classic, modern or dramatic all at the same time.

Picking the Best Poster Frames

Memorial Day weekend is almost here and that’s when Hollywood kicks off the summer blockbuster season and starts releasing their big tentpole movies. If you’re a fan of action, adventure and fantasy or anything with explosions, special effects or spies, this is a great time of year for you. Sometimes it’s fun, when you’re a fan, to get a few posters from the big movies coming up. Not the expensive, collectible posters that hold a lot of value, just the ones you can pull out of the rack or order online at Posterservice. Unless you’re ten years old, however, you probably don’t just want to throw the poster up willy-nilly on a wall. You want to put it in a picture frame. What are ideal movie poster frames?

At Frameusa we have an entire category devoted solely to poster frames. They are all plastic picture frames but come in a wide variety. The best choices when you’re looking for a large frame like a 24 x 36 or 27 x 40 frame are our Budget Saver series and our Simply Poly.

Budget Saver have a beveled 1 1/4″ profile and come in black and cherry. They have a sleek look to them and are good and sturdy. Our Simply Poly posterframes also have a 1 1/4″ profile but are flat, like our popular Corporate wood picture frames. The Simply Poly comes in white or black.

If you don’t want plastic there are some other frames that are particularly well suited to showing off your movie posters. If it’s wood you’re looking for, the aforementioned Corporate series comes in many different colors and is made from an eco-friendly wood composite. So not only does your Ant-Man poster look good in it, but you’re also helping the environment. For a thinner profile, made from real wood, you can’t go wrong with our Architect series. It has a tight, slim look and comes in some great colors.

Lastly, for something a little different, our Metal I and Metal II series can be put to good use showing off your favorite movie posters. They have the same thin, 3/8″ width but each series offers different colors. Metal I has the more basic, red, white, blue, black, silver and gold, while Metal II offers some unique colors like blue pewter, gunmetal grey and shiny bronze.

My Favorite Posters: by Angela Iacobucci

As the Licensing Director at Posterservice, Inc., it’s only appropriate that I share my favorite posters! In compiling this list, it becomes clear that I love the humor posters; to have a funny image on the wall as a reminder to laugh, or at least smile every day. In addition to a slew of humor posters, we have a large variety of other images waiting to adorn your walls, including music, inspirational, photography or art, to name a few.

My favorite Posterservice poster is Onward!

Onward!
Onward!

by Jay Fleck. I love the clean design (I am a graphic designer, after all) and the crazy theme. An eye-patched, sword wielding giraffe is riding a shark as it jumps out of the water, on a mission. I’m not sure where they are going, but it must be important. This poster is a great piece to hang as a reminder to move ‘Onward’ with purpose in the adventure of life; and it’s just funny. This poster will definitely cheer you up if you are having a bad day.

 

 

 

My next favorite Posterservice poster is DJ. Also quite silly, a city-sized groundhog is DJing

DJ
DJ

among the skyscrapers of New York City. This one makes me smile every time, as he’s in the zone, minding his own business and completely ignoring the circling helicopter. I’m curious as to where such a giant rodent came from, and how he got such a large turntable and headphones to jam out and bring music to the city. The teal circle adds enough color to the grayscale image, emphasizing the furball in all his

happy glory.

 

We also have many humorous beer posters. Happy Hour makes me chuckle, with the oversized glasses. Don’t you wish your favorite bar had such large glassware? Sometimes there are hot days when a nice (big) glass of beer with a good friend makes everything better. Caribooze is also funny, with a caribou boozing out, using his antlers as beer holders. He would be a great party mascot! And then of course Alcoholic Beverages Encouraged is a law-defying poster encouraging people to drink. Nothing like graffiti on a sign to change the law.

This is only a sampling of my favorite posters, and it was hard to pick just a couple. We are always adding new posters to our line, and some of the images in the works are awesome. Check back often to our Coming Soon and Newest sections on www.posterservice.com; you might just find a new favorite poster to hang!

Posters Coming Soon: Batman Vs. Superman

9948 Marvel’s new meta action/comedy “Deadpool” just blew the records out of the water for its opening run over Valentine’s weekend and now everyone is anxiously awaiting the next big comic book adaptation. All eyes are focused on the DC battle/team up film “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”.

“Batman Vs. Superman” is the introduction to “The Justice League” which DC hopes will be a shared, continuous universe like Marvel’s popular cinematic universe. It would be the first DC movie to feature characters being played by the same actors over multiple individual films and then also teaming up in Justice League films (like Marvel’s Avengers). Several actors from the film “Man of Steel” reprise their roles for “BVS” including Henry Cavill as Superman. With the departure of Christian Bale as Batman (once the Christopher Nolan “Dark Knight” trilogy ended) Warner Bros. and DC needed a new caped crusader. They cast veteran actor/director Ben Affleck to put on the cowl and cape and duke it out with the first 9944 son of Krypton. He will then go on to carry the role through the next forseeable films. Also being introduced in this film are Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (a highly anticipated appearance) and Jason Momoa as Auquaman.

The story is guarded but basically revolves around the idea that Bruce Wayne–the Batman–is worried, in his obsessive, single-minded way, that Superman being a Godlike being, could turn on and ultimately destroy humankind. He makes it his mission to destroy the man of steel before he has a chance to destroy us. The villain Lex Luthor eggs on the battle while plotting to unleash something even more devastating: Doomsday. Somehow Wonder Woman and apparently Aquaman show up and tie into all of it too thus forming the core of the Justice League.

Expectations are high and fans are buzzing and Posterservice is going to wade into the battle. Coming soon are two new posters that represent either side of the fight. Are you for the Savior of Metropolis or the Bat of Gotham? Why not both? Hedge your bets a little.

If you can’t wait or choose a side you can pick up our “Batman Vs. Superman” teaser poster.

Once you have your posters, you’ll want frames to hang them on the wall. At Frame USA we have a great selection of poster frames, as well as wood and metal frames. There are several that would be ideal for one of these BVS posters but it might be cool to go with our Metal I series of frames. Maybe a shiny red or blue frame for your Superman poster and a black one for your Batman, hung side by side.

So keep an eye out for our new posters and meanwhile, check out all of our great movie posters in sizes like 24×36 and 16×20. Then, sit back and wait for the battle between these two comic book titans. It will be exciting!

Decorate It 2" Frame

Framing Up Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is all about letting someone special know that you’re thinking about them. One way to do that is by getting them a gift. You can buy something expensive (like jewelry), or something you know they need (like a gardening trowel) but the gifts that leave the biggest impression are the ones that have meaning behind them. The thoughtful presents that you create yourself that shows your valentine how well you know them. A great way of doing this is by putting significant photos or mementos from a special moment into picture frames and then customizing those frames.

At Frame USA we have a number of different frames that would be perfect for creating this kind of unique Valentine’s Day present.

The Decorate It Frame

This is an unfinished picture frame with a flat profile that comes in 3 different widths (1.5″, 2″ or 3″). It is created especially

Decorate It 2" Frame

for crafting. You can paint it, glue on it, and use a wood burning pen, anything you can think of to decorate the frame. You could get small wooden hearts or other Valentine’s Day items (even those little candy hearts) and affix them to the frame with an inside that reminds the person of a fun time you’ve had together.

The Unfinished Frame

Unfinished Profile 1

This frame is another unfinished wood frame (as the name might suggest). Like the Decorate It, the Unfinished series comes in 3 different profiles, but these are more decorative with some scoops and beveling in the frame. This picture frame could be painted in a rosy, reddish or dark pink color with a picture of you and your valentine together held within it. A classy way to celebrate your relationship.

 

 

 

Laser Engraving

Maybe you don’t have a lot of time or are just not good at crafting, painting or applique. You can still customize a frame for

your sweetheart to create a special memory. At Frame USA we are able to laser engrave names and even logos onto certain frame series that are found in the Laser Engraving category. You can engrave on any or all of the frame rails, oriented how you like. The laser burns away the finish to show the wood (or metal) beneath. You can engrave their name, maybe dates or a special quote or song lyrics. The possibilities for making your valentine go, “Awwwww!” and look at you with puppy-dog eyes are endless.

Shadowboxes

Remember that time you and your valentine went to the___(theater, restaurant, beach, etc.) and they kept the___(ticket stub, receipt, shells you found, etc.)? Wouldn’t it be a great Valentine’s Day

surprise to put those in a nice display? Frame USA has several  different shadowboxes that are just right for showing off  mementos. In our Shadowbox Elite, Shadowbox Showcase or Barnwood Shadowbox (for those  who appreciate a rustic look) you can mount those items to the foamcore backing and give your  special someone a gift that is both stylish and thoughtful.
