From Poster Frames

What I frame in my Home: Beth Kuhnell Posterservice Licensing

I think it’s a fair question to ask what an employee of a great frame and poster company would choose to hang on the walls of their own home, I mean we are the experts, right? (Fun fact: We are!) Of course, what attracted me to this company in the first place was my love for art, so of course I also enjoy decorating my own apartment. I would like to share what I’ve chosen to frame on my own walls, whether it came from Frame USA and Posterservice, (which have obviously been great enablers in terms of what I choose hang up), photos of my own, or even my own artwork.

It’s tough to choose the favorite thing I have up, but ultimately I would have to pick my wedding photos, (Okay, so maybe it’s not that tough) which I had framed at our retail store earlier this year. They came out amazing and I get compliments on these all the time.

Above our fireplace (slash beer shrine) I have a copy of a Cincinnati skyline print that we gave away to customers and employees here at Frame USA to celebrate our retail store grand re-opening back in 2013. Besides being a stunning shot of my home city, this image is also pretty special to me personally, as I was the one

who communicated with the artist Keith Allen to get him on board from the project. Below the mantle you’ll also notice the license plate from my last car, which sadly was totaled last year (RIP Car), luckily I came out of that fine, but decided to keep a little memento, because why not?

Speaking of beer… here is the arrangement we have behind our couch in the living room. (Noticing a theme?). My husband and I really love the craft beer theme, and even homebrew our own beer.

I also don’t mind framing some of my own artwork, including one of my pieces from my senior thesis project

at UC – DAAP. This piece, “Fibers” is illustrated on stained wood!

Another drawing of mine is hanging in our computer room, and sports a wicked awesome wood picture frame courtesy of the Frame USA custom framing team.

This isn’t technically on a wall, but on the door to our bedroom. I cut this Legend of Zelda logo out of contact paper and placed it on the door. I really enjoy creating unique wall art like this.

The next one I guess you could call a combination of my own artwork, and a Frame USA/Posterservice project. I designed this ‘Shots!’ poster for the Posterservice line in 2014, since then it has taken off and can even be found in Spencer Gifts stores throughout the nation! So naturally I had to have a copy of my own.

While that is not everything I have on my walls, those are for sure some of my favorites! (And some of them would not be there had I not started my career at this company.) I think the

best rule to follow when choosing what to put on your walls is, have FUN!

Metal Picture Frames

Make Your Business Shine with Metal Picture Frames!

Whether you work in an office, a restaurant a garage or a factory, you’re going to have things hanging on the walls. Inspirational “Successories” posters, a  copy of your drink menu, safety guidelines and certificates, or even just prints to spruce up your decor. This isn’t a dorm room where you can just tack them to the wall, this is your business. You need nice picture frames to hang your art and photos in. You don’t necessarily want plastic poster frames but maybe you’re also not looking for wood picture frames either–you want something more sleek and modern. A perfect solution for your framing needs would be metal picture frames.

Metal picture frames are a great way to show off your business’s wall hangings. There are many benefits to choosing metal frames. For one thing, they’re versatile when it comes to styling. They have slim profiles giving them a sleek, modern look that would be at home in any office setting. Most come in a shiny or “flat” finish so you can decide how much attention you want drawn to the image being framed. You can choose a flat finish frame if you have neutral images that you want to blend into the overall decor, or you can go with shiny if you want to make sure people’s eyes are being caught and focused on your piece. Another benefit to metal picture frames is that they’re lightweight. They’re easy to move around and wall mount. In addition to their lightness, metal frames are also sturdy. Another consideration that is specific to food-service type businesses is that metal picture frames are easily cleaned. If you’ve got pictures hanging up at your tables, food particles can easily find their way up there. With metal frames it’s a snap to just wipe them down and keep them fresh and sparkling. The same goes for a garage where dust and grease are omnipresent. A good scrub with a damp cloth will have metal frames looking like new.

Metal I Picture Frame
Metal I Blue

At Frame USA we have several different styles of metal picture frame, each one having its own profile and color options. Our most basic and popular metal frames are our Metal I and Metal II series. These frames have the same profile– a 3/8″ width with a rounded face–but differ in color choices and finish. Metal I has the shiny finish with the more basic colors–white, blue, red gold and silver.

Metal II Contrast Gold
Metal II Contrast Gold

Metal II has the more flat, “brushed” finish with more elegant colors like bronze, old world and blue pewter, contrast silver, among others.

Let’s say you like the look of the Metal I and Metal II but you want something a little thicker and heavier. Our Heavy Metal picture frames give you the same rounded face but with a 5/8″ width and a heavier build. It comes in four colors, shiny black, flat black, gold and silver and is ideal for more labor oriented shops that need to display safety regulations and certifications.

Heavy Metal Black

Maybe you aren’t a huge fan of the rounded face, though. You want something flat and you want some different colors choices for your frames. We’ve got you covered

Glory Metal Purple
Glory Metal Purple

there too. Our Glory Metal picture frames have a 5/8″ profile with a flat face, and in addition to the normal black, silver, gold and bronze also features a purple, evergreen and a steel grey. These picture frames would do well holding menus and specials or even posters in a theater lobby.

All of these frames come complete with glazing, backing and hanging hardware, all pre-assembled. “That’s all fine and good,” you say, “but I’ve already got a guy that cuts plexiglass for me and I use special backing. Do you have something I can just put together myself?” As a matter of fact we do! Our U-Frame-It kits come in two different styles; a 7/8″ depth and a 1″ depth, both feature the same colors. These include two frame sections in a certain size (so if you want to build an 11×17 you would buy one kit of 11″ and one kit of 17″) that start at 8″ and go all the way up to 51″. You can mix and

match to build any combination of sizes for your framed art.

So when you’re thinking about dressing up your business and you’re wondering what kind of frames you want to use, consider metal picture frames. They’re a solid solution that rocks!

Picking Poster Frames: A Newbie’s Guide

Posters are a great way to punch up any room and inject it with some of our own style and identity. Movie poster, music poster, art prints, there’s all kinds of choices you can make. But once you have your posters unrolled and in your house, what’s the best way to display it? There are as many different kinds of poster frames and framing options as there are kinds of posters. What’s the best one to hang your brand new Led Zeppelin or Resevoir Dogs poster? At Frameusa.com we have some great solutions to your poster frame need.

posterframe_silverComplete
Basic Poster Frames

First, you need to know what kind of poster you’re hanging and how important it is to you. Is this just a simple 11×17 boy band poster for your niece’s birthday that she’ll outgrow in two years or so? Maybe you’re looking for a cheap picture frame, something that goes above and beyond just handing her a rolled poster to tape onto the wall, but that is inexpensive. We have three options that are meant for this situation. Our Corrugated Posterframe, Foamcore Posterframe and  Hardboard Posterframe.

These three frames are our basic poster frames. They have four mylar frame sides with mitered corners that “slide” or “snap” to the backing and styrene to hold the poster frame together. You put your poster on the backing, put the styrene on top of them and slide your sides on. It’s very easy and quick. You can choose from three different backings as well, which are the corrugated cardboard, foamcore and hardboard. The cardboard is the most inexpensive option but not as durable or long lasting as the foamcore or hardboard (the hardboard material is masonite). These frames come in a variety of colors and sizes.

DeluxePosterframe_black
Deluxe Poster Frame

Maybe you’re not framing a poster for your niece though. Maybe you’re putting motivational posters in frames for your office. You need a large quantity of 24×36 posterframes to show off your inspirational images and they need to look nice but at a cheap picture frame price. For this kind of project I’d suggest our Deluxe poster frames. They come in 3 colors (Black, Gold and Silver) and all of our standard sizes. The frame rails are made from polystyrene with a slim, rounded profile so they have a sleek, professional look. The posters inside can be easily changed out and these frames will not hurt your budget.

 

Budget Saver
simplypoly_whiteComplete
Simply Poly

But you’re not giving gifts to a niece or hanging posters in your office. You’ve gotten yourself a vintage, limited edition Bob Marley poster. You still want a simple plastic poster frame but you want one that’s a little more physically substantial. For these pieces we recommend our Budget Saver or our Simply Poly.
These are both thicker moldings with a bit more heft and presence than the Deluxe or the basic Posterframes. The Budget Saver comes in black and cherry and has a gentle bevelled profile, whereas the Simply Poly comes in black and white and has a flat profile. These are ideal for your 24×36 movie posters and art prints. In fact the Simply Poly goes up to 27×41 for those hardcore movie fans out there who get the full size theater posters. Both of these are thick enough to use sawtooth hangers for hanging (unlike the Deluxe and basic Posterframes which have hanging tabs stamped into their backing).

So whatever kind of poster it is your framing–something somewhat transient that will soon be replaced or something you want on your living room wall for years–we have a poster frame to accomodate you at Frameusa.

Marvel

Comic Books Conquer TV

It would be an understatement to say that comic book adaptations have overtaken television. One web article lists 42(!) announced series based on comics of all genres. Superheroes, horror, sci-fi and some plain old comedy (a series based on Archie Comics called “Riverdale” is being prepped by Warner Brothers Television). Due to the episodic nature of both mediums, these stories  seem to fare better (both critically and with viewers) than their big screen counterparts. In a television show, as in a comic, characters can develop and change over time, and story arcs can be more fully explored. In a movie, you have a limited amount of time with your audience to try and deliver a fully realized story. So maybe it’s not so surprising that these tv adaptations seem to connect better with their viewers.

 

The Walking dead
The Walking Dead Season 3
Item # PSA009572

One of the greatest comic book-to-small screen success stories is AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Based on the series by Robert Kirkman, TWD follows a group of survivors navigating their way through a zombie apocalypse (or more accurately, a post-zombie apocalypse world). It is gritty, violent and gory but depicts it’s characters’ attempts to hold on to their humanity in a world where being humane usually gets one killed. Now going into it’s sixth season, TWD continues to pull high ratings and generate buzz. It’s been so successful in fact, that AMC had launched a spin off series, “Fear the Walking Dead” to begin in August. “Fear the Walking Dead” will show the beginning of the plague that eventually decimates the world and show the collapse of civilization. “The Walking Dead” is not the only horror comics series to be adapted recently either. “Constantine” based on the “Hellblazer” comics from DC received critical praise at NBC, but wasn’t able to pull in the ratings it needed to make it to a second season. The CW gave us “IZombie” this year, based on the DC Vertigo book. Upcoming horror comics turned tv shows are “Lucifer” (the FOX network)based on a character from DC’s “Sandman” comics, and ” Preacher” based on the highly acclaimed DC Vertigo comic.

Daredevil
Daredevil

Of course, it’s the superhero comics we know best. They’re brightly colored and feature characters we can rally behind. This last year saw Marvel expand their Cinematic Universe (the films and shows that all tie in to one another) further into television with multiple titles. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returned for a second season and “Agent Carter” premiered, both at ABC, both part of the Avengers franchise. And over at Netflix, the new “Daredevil” reboot was just released to mainly positive reviews (especially for Vincent D’Onofrio’s portrayal of Wilson Fisk, AKA Kingpin). All three shows connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and characters from all of them may now show up in other films and tv shows within it. The big surprise, however, is the success that DC has found on television. They haven’st done very well with certain properties on the big screen (aside from the Tim Burton and Chris Nolan “Batman” runs and Christopher Reeve era “Superman”). Over the past few years, however, they’ve managed to build some very well received shows with “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Gotham.” All of which tweak their mythologies some but with a sense of fun that is sometimes missing from their movie adaptations. DC has also two adaptations coming up from the “Superman” universe; one is “Supergirl” premiering in November at CBS and “Krypton” which is in develpment at SyFy.

Jim Lee's Batman
Jim Lee’s Batman

The last few years have been called a “Golden Age” for television with so many scripted series pushing the boundaries of what storytelling can be, and what kinds of characters resonate with us. Comic books inject so much color (sometimes light, sometimes dark) into the medium that it’s easy to see why producers, writers, directors and actors fight to grab up these properties and try to bring them to three dimensional life.

So kick back, grab some popcorn and a drink, and strap in–your favorite characters are about to step off of the page and into your living room. And after your thrilling adventures are over, click into Posterservice.com and pick up one of (or all of, why not?) our many comic book, movie and tv posters to hang on your wall.

March Madness: Basketball Championship

It is about that time of the year again. In less than a week college basketball teams from across the United States will compete for the ultimate title of NCAA National Championship. Universities, big and small will be on the edge of their seats as they cheer on their favorite team. Families and friendships are torn apart based on the team they back. Cinderella stories of underdog teams rising to the top make the entire nation’s hearts swell (Go Dayton Flyers!). They don’t call this time of year, Madness for nothing.

So what does college basketball have to do with an American picture frame company?

We offer over 100 different series of picture frames. Not to mention the picture framing accessories that we have available. So during a time when competition is on everyone’s minds, we begin to wonder, which one of our picture frame series is the best; the ultimate champion of picture frames.

Sure we have a list of 12 bestsellers in the wood category, but that’s one category and the NCAA doesn’t declare 12 champion teams, they declare 1! With the help of our customers we are going to hold our own championship to determine the winner.

the first ever 2015 frameusa.com picture frame championship.

We have begun narrowing down our 100 different series to choose the top 4 series of each of our categories: Wood Frames, Metal Frames, Poster Frames and Specialty Frames.

Each picture frame series will first compete within the category but as the competition progresses they will go head to head with the other categories to find the ultimate champion.

On Friday we will announce which frames we have selected for this championship and why they have been chosen so stay tuned to see if your favorite picture frames are in the running.

This blog will provide you with real-time coverage of the 2015 Frameusa.com Picture Frame Championship.

 

 

Most Popular Picture Frame Sizes–Revisited

One of our most popular blog posts to date has been a post about most popular frame sizes We thought we would bring it back as we enter into the holiday season as a resource for you as you purchase picture frames. Enjoy!

Most popular frame sizes

We are often asked what our most popular frame sizes are. It is first important for us to clarify how our sizes work in general. Here is the list of all of the sizes that we consider to be standard frame sizes:

picture frame custom
A listing of our standard picture frame sizes.

In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized sizes overall. These sizes cover a wide range of photograph sizes, poster sizes, art print sizes, and many other common sizes we see every day. Our most popular sizes are:

5×7

5x7’s are a very popular frame size because so many photographs are printed off in the 5×7 size. 5x7’s are the perfect size to display your photos on a desktop at work, home, or to give a precious memory to someone close to you.

Frames with a smaller molding such as our Corporate Thin series are great but don’t be afraid to go with a wider moulding such as our Bistro Series

8×10

Our 8×10 picture frames are top sellers at Frame USA. Once again, 8×10 is a common picture size, but it is also a perfect frame because it includes a mat. Our 8×10 frames come with an off white mat for a 5×7 image, allowing you to mat your 5×7 picture to help highlight your memories.

8.5×11

8.5 x 11 picture frames are a popular size for documents and certificate. Check out our wide variety of specialty certificate frames or our very popular diploma series. But all of our wood frames and metal frames can be used for documents,diplomas and certificates.

11×14

11×14 frames also include an off white mat but for an 8×10 image. Many of our customers love this size because they can use the frame with the mat, or remove the mat and highlight their 11×14 photographs. Our picture frames all offer this versatility, making Frame USA’s picture frames perfect for any occasion or event.

Some great frames in this size would be our Architect and Corporate series

16×20

If you are looking for a medium sized picture frame, the 16×20 size is a great choice. Our 16×20 picture 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 a great size picture 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.

This is a great size to go with a wider picture frame such as our Verona Wide Series.

24×36

Our largest popular size picture frame is our 24 x 36 size. 24 by 36 is the main size that most posters that are sold come in. 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.

Plaque-mounting your image is another option that would work well, which is basically a way to display an image without a frame. (They do get considerably heavier with size, though!)

 

Know the size of your fine art but not sure which frame you would like to order? Purchase a sample!

When choosing the best picture frame size for you, always make sure to measure your image first. All of our frame sizes are based on the inside dimensions. Therefore if you have an 8×10 image and do not want to use the mat, you still want to order an 8×10 frame. If you have an 11×14 image and do want to include a mat, it is important to order a larger frame size to accommodate this.

Now the question is what is a custom size frame? A custom size frame here at Frame USA is any size outside of our standard 32 sizes (refer to chart listed above). We can produce almost any size frame your heart can imagine. Our only limitations come into play with the width of the moulding- the thinner the frame, the smaller the maximum size will be.

We hope this article on our most popular frame sizes has provided you with all of the information you may need when ordering our picture frames. If you ever have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you!

How To Frame A Poster

Tips for framing a poster

Posters are a great way to decorate your bedrooms but we often see people struggling to know how to frame posters. We thought we would help everyone out and give you our suggestions on framing posters! Spoiler Alert: We have a sale on poster frames going on right now, coupon code and more information about the sale are at the bottom of this post!

 

There are two things that make framing posters so difficult: The Size and the cheap poster prices.  Posters are generally large; the standard poster sizes are typically 24×36 and larger.  It will come to no surprise to you that large picture frames are going to be more expensive than small frames. So we thought we would give you our products that will make framing posters quick and easy. We have separated out our suggestions based on the age of the recipient.

 

framing a poster for Young Children:

When it comes to framing posters for children you want to keep it as inexpensive as possible because they are so young and their tastes in things change so rapidly. They may decide that the movie Frozen is there favorite thing in the whole world one minute and then decide the next that their favorite thing in the whole world is actually My Little Pony.

You also have to be worried about safety when it comes to hanging large pieces in your children’s room.

For these two reasons we suggest going with our basic plastic poster frame: The Corrugated Series.

This series is made of Mylar which is a thin plastic channel with colored film on it. The sides of the poster frame slide off and back on for easy assembling. This series is one that will fit in every single group because it is so simple. They are available in all standard poster frame sizes.

 

FRAMING A POSTER FOR Teenagers:

This group has a pretty wide range of ages in it so there is more options for framing posters.

As mentioned above, our corrugated series is great for all ages, especially young children and teenagers. Another perk of the corrugated series for your older children is that they don’t need help assembling the frame. They can change out their poster choices easily with the slide off strips.

The kids in the middle of this age group are beginning to get more solidified interests and may want to have a sturdier frame. We suggest considering our Foam Core Series. This series is similar to the Corrugated poster frame Series with one difference, instead of cardboard backing it comes with a much sturdier Foam Core Backing.

For kids at the top of this age group, they know their interests, they are thinking about college and life after high school. You want something that makes their room feel like their own space, and  give them the option of having something inexpensive but incredibly sturdy. We have a third option in our Mylar Poster Frame Series called The Hardboard Poster Frame Series. This series is perfect for kids who have posters that must last (until they get to college and completely change their interests). Our Hardboard Posterframes are cheap poster frames with an incredibly sturdy backing.

FRAMING A POSTER FOR College Kids:

The three posterframes mentioned above definitely still apply to these kids because college kids are rough and things break so why not give them a cheap poster framing option. Our Corrugated Series is probably the most popular with the dorm crowd because it’s light weight and can be hung using poster mounts on dorm walls.

For the kids that want a little bit more elegance for their apartments and dorm rooms we offer two affordable poster frames that have an elegant flair to them. Our Deluxe poster frames and Budget Saver Poster Frame Series are made from polystyrene which is hard plastic frame that is lightweight. They feature a more prominent molding to be a conversation piece in their home away from home.

 

FRAMING A POSTER FOR Adults:

For those that have graduated college and/or have been in the workforce for quite some time you know what you like, and you have a more flexible budget when it comes to framing posters. You could always go with your traditional black wood frames, but if you still want cheap frames for posters than you will be very interested in our newest posterframe picture frame line. Our Simply Poly Series has all the style of a classic wood picture frame moulding but it’s made out of the same material as our Deluxe and Budget Saver so it should be high on your list of cheap framing options!

We absolutely love Simply Poly here in the office because they are so durable, and versatile but still have such an elegance that none of our other posterframes posses.
