Doctor Who

The Doctor & His Box Soars to New Heights in The U.S.A

Move over Clara, The Doctor has a new companion and they’re the millions of fans in the United States of America.

The tale of a humanoid alien and his adventures through time and space started back in 1963 as a British science-fiction television program on BBC called Doctor Who. 52 years and 12 doctors later Doctor who is a rising trend all across the world. Whovians (fans of Doctor Who) span all ages, and all generations. The original program that started it all featured 26 seasons of ‘on the edge of your seat’ entertainment before it was canceled in 1989. This show was unique, it was created to be educational; to teach children about history and science. 16 years after the original program was canceled, in 2005, something that all fans wish when their obsession goes off the air, Doctor Who was relaunched by Russell T Davies.

This classic television show started in the UK but has taken over American’s hearts with the reboot. In the 10 years that the new Doctor Who has been in production there has been a huge wave of merchandise for Whovians to obsess over. Action figures, posters, Apparel, toys, home decor, Doctor Who has it all thanks to companies out there, such as LEGO, that saw the trend and never stop running with it. LEGO has created Doctor Who Sets, and just recently a video game where The twelfth Doctor joins Batman, Gandalf and WyldStyle in battle to save the world. The announce of this new game came right at the same time the season 9 trailer was released. The very first second that the trailer was released it went viral. The news of the video game released is currently trending on social media. All of it got us thinking that we had to way in on this cult show.

When people who have never seen the show encounter a Whovian, it can be a bit overwhelming. There is a lot of shouting and hand gestures and talk of stone angels who steal your soul and of course a madman in a blue box. However when those non-believers become a Whovian they understand just how impossible it is to describe this cult television show to someone they once were. I know because I was a non-believer for a long long time and I looked to my Whovian friends with a side eye every time they talked about it, but now i’m the one going to conventions and freaking out over new seasons. So trust me (and the millions of other people who call themselves Whovians), If you’re looking for a new show to start up: Choose Doctor Who.

How Frame USA Employees Celebrate Fourth of July

In case you didn’t know, we’re pretty big fans of America. We’re an American made company that manufacturers high quality picture frames. All of our picture frames are manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio. Birthday celebrations are something that almost everyone enjoys but when it comes to the birth of this great Nation, the celebrations across the country get pretty crazy: parades, cookouts and even fireworks! So we wanted to let our customers know what our employees are doing to celebrate today for the Fourth of July.

Frame USA Employees Celebrate Fourth of July

we’ll end up grilling out and watching Independence Day for maybe the 100th time. Oh, and strawberry rhubarb cobbler will definitely be had by all.” – Erin Corley

“I’ve got tickets to see one of my all-time favorite guitar players and guitar great Steven Stills in Alexandria,,Virginia at a cool venue called the Birchmere.   Stills is part of the group Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and he is incredible also as a stand alone artist.    He was also in a group called Buffalo Springfield which sang a well-known song “Stop, Hey What’s That Sound….”   He will be playing a retrospective concert of his career.   I plan to go with former Posterservice and Frame USA President Dana Gore!” – Daniel Regenold

“Typically the Kombrinck family packs up our folding chairs and finds a fireworks festival at any one of our local parks. We camp out around dusk eating funnel cakes and people-watching till the show starts. Then we sit back and watch the sky explode with color.” -Kelley Kombrinck

“we have family come to us. We have the best seats for the fourth, right in our back yard.  You see my neighbors (2) put on a fireworks display that most city or towns can’t compare too. Goes on for 2 hours. But the best part is I get to see my sister-in-law, and nephew.” – Jill Gugel 

“I’ll be taking my family up to the in-laws’ house Saturday morning for blueberry scones and a parade – both annual traditions in the family. That evening, if we’re lucky with the weather, trees in our line of sight, and with my daughter’s ability to stay awake that far past her bedtime, we’ll be able to see a fireworks display from our house.” – Zach Moning

“We like to sit out at the lake and watch fireworks going off all around us.” – Anne Decker

“For me, I just love relaxing with family and friends” -Kelly Ackerman

“Family BBQ! My Uncle is from Texas and makes the best brisket I can find anywhere around!” -Mark Jungkunz

“This year my husband and I will have a BBQ in our backyard, then head to Red White & Blue Ash to watch fireworks with our twins.” -Taylor Harris

“Grill out with family in Blue Ash and then the Fireworks in blue ash and showing art on fountain square a part of Art on Vine series  the next day” -David Estep

“We go  to Brookville  In to our cabin and have our own fireworks display.” -Cathy Chapman


As you can see our employees celebrate the Fourth of July in a wide variety of ways. However you celebrate the Fourth of July always remember what the holiday is really about and remember Be Safe!!


Thoughts on Remaking Classic Movies

We’re a poster company so of course we love movies we have a variety of posters of from classic movies for all generations. These movies were so iconic they have made a lasting impression on the world to the point where they are talked about to our children and our children’s children. There is no set of guidelines to determine whether a movie will last for years to come, it just sort of happens.

In the past couple of years there has been a trend in the movie industry of remaking or expanding on classic movies years after the initial release. It seems like right now this trend is at its highest. The past couple of months there have been a few that have been making headlines. Jurassic World has shattered the box office, The Terminator Genysis came out July 1st and looks to be a thriller. Soon we will have a new Star Wars and Ghostbusters staring some pretty hilarious ladies. The main movie that sparked our interest in this trend was Terminator. We’re pretty big fans of the original movies so when we heard that another movie was coming out and that Arnold Schwarzenegger was to pick back his role up we were skeptical but intrigued.

While we have yet to see the film so we can’t tell you how it is, it did get us thinking on whether recreating or expanding on classic movies is a good thing or if it is a bad thing. The verdict is still out but here are some pros and cons of the whole thing.

One of the biggest pros is it allows all the original viewers of these movies to relive their time with the classics, even if the recreation falls slightly short of their expectations. When Toy Story 3 came out the theater wasn’t filled with children it was filled with adults who grew up watching the previous movies, who grew up with Andy and his toys. When Jurassic World came out people remembered cowering in their seats at the carnivores chomping away and how awesome it would be if we all could have a pet dinosaur. That emotion that you feel during a movie is what hooks you and makes you enjoy the expansion or the remake. It brings you back to your childhood where times were simple.

The con is that the children of today’s world (who don’t have wise parents, aunts and uncles, or grandparents to enlighten them) won’t ever see the classics. Why choose the broken down pick up when you could have the shiny new Ferrari? Its their loved ones excitement for the classic that makes them jump on board and be pulled in.

The classics don’t have the technology that the newer movies have, although it may have been awesome when you first saw the movie (and probably still is in your eyes) but kids seeing these movies that have special effects not created on the computer but rather by crafty camera angels and green screens are only seeing cheesy movies that don’t grab their attention.

The one thing that the remakes and the expansions do provide is for a way for our kids,nieces, nephews, granddaughters and grandsons to connect with us by letting them see a form of something we love in a medium that they enjoy.

What do you think? Should classic movies be remade or expanded upon?

The Walking dead

Walk-through The Walking Dead

We first mentioned The Walking Dead fandom in a post earlier this week, but Frame USA and especially Posterservice have been fans of the series since the beginning.

The Walking Dead Background

This fandom first started out  from a comic book written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Tony Moore back in 2003. The comic book chronicles the travels of a character named Rick Grimes, his family and other survivors of a zombie apocalypse. 7 Years later, that very comic book was used as the beginning of one of the biggest television series to date called none other than, The Walking Dead. As many TV shows and movies that are based on books go, the show followed the comic books pretty closely for the first season. As the characters developed in the series the TV Show strayed away from the comic books to form its own story line. Around that same time Telltale Games developed a video game series loosely based on the comic book. These three forms of media were the beginning, but definitely not the end, of The Walking Dead Franchise.


The TV show is currently filming their sixth season. The TV channel behind the series, AMC, just released a behind the scenes look at that upcoming season. To get all the fans ready for it we wanted to share all of our walking dead posters that we have available.

Calling all Fandoms—We’ve got something for you!

If there is a TV show or movie that you’re absolutely obsessed with and find yourself talking about it every second you get, you’re not alone. In fact in the entire world there are people equally obsessed with that same show and annoying their family and friends with constant references that they know nothing about(…yet). For those unaware that they’ve been a part of a group, this phenomenon has been coined as Fandom.

According to A fandom has two definitions, it is all the fans (as of a sport) and it is also the state or attitude of being a fan. Here at Posterservice we like to cater to the wide range of fandoms out there with Posters!

We’ve compiled our favorite posters from some of the most popular fandoms for your enjoyment. Check them all out and if you stumble upon a fandom you know nothing about, we’ll just go ahead and say you’re welcome now for introducing you to some pretty awesome stuff.

Let’s Talk About Posters: Rack Track Program

After being in business for over 30 years we have come to a conclusion: College students really like posters (shocking, right?). While the college students are off soaking up the sun and definitely not thinking about calculus or physics (for the most part…), the employees at their colleges are starting to get everything ready for the NEXT school year. Part of that preparation includes the purchasing of their customers favorite things: POSTERS! That’s where we come in, one of the busiest time of the year for Posterservice is starting this week. We have put together a whole bunch of packages that are 100% made for bookstores and other stores that market to college students. We thought we would kick off the back to school season with a video starring none other than your favorite poster guy: David Estep.

David is the go to person when it comes to knowing  what all the programs we have to offer our customers when it comes to posters. One of our most worthwhile program is our Rack Track program. I won’t try to sum up what this program is all about — because it’s much more entertaining to watch a video about it!

Frame USA’s New Product: Introducing The Beach White Series

We weren’t kidding when we mentioned that we were introducing a whole bunch of new products. Just the past two months alone we have introduced our Frame an Album, The Noble Series, and The Cambridge Series. With all these new product additions we sure could use a little R&R. What better location than to relax and have the stress melt away than a beach!

Don’t go packing your bags just yet (although it really is tempting) you’ll miss the best part!

Since most of us can’t actually escape to a private little island we thought we would at least bring on a frame that sets our dreams afloat.

Introducing the Beach White Series

    Beach White Narrow


This series is what any great beach getaway consists of, clean lines, pearlescent white finish and a choose your own adventure game. So we may have fibbed on that last part, but with the Beach White series you do have the option of choosing between a narrow profile and a wide profile. The narrow profile measures in at around 1 1/2″ wide where as the wide profile comes in at around 2 1/2″. Either route you choose will have you setting sail to your very own private island (without the outrageous price tag attached).

Beach White Wide Beach White Narrow   Beach White Wide Corner   Beach White Narrow Corner

If you’re not too thrilled about having your friends mistake your home as a vacation home, don’t fret The Beach White series has a clean beveled edge that takes a modern relaxed twist on the typical beach style frame.

After being around this serene new  series, we’ve almost convinced ourselves that we can hear the waves crashing on the rocks and the sun on our faces

Introducing the Cambridge Series

Cambridge Aged Gold Cambridge Gold   Cambridge Silver

This series joins the metallic wood frame family with three different colors: Aged Gold, Gold and Silver. These colors are more muted then the other gold and silver frames that Frame USA has available.

It is a 1 3/4 inches wide profile. Each frame features a unique inner edge that makes any piece stand out.

Barnwood Picture Frames–Three Brand Series

Barnwood Picture Frames

One of the most popular product that we have ever carried at Frame USA has been our Barnwood Series. This frame is fantastic made of reclaimed wood from actual barns. We had a hard time ever keeping any of it on our shelves. It was so popular that our manufacturer just couldn’t come up with the material that we need to make the frames. This series is currently out of stock until further notice which has caused some anger from our customers, and we hate making our customers angry!

So here is what we did, we added three new members of the Barnwood family to our line. We could never replace the original Barnwood series in the hearts of our company or our customers but we had to fill the void caused by the out of stock barnwood, and we think we did a pretty good job.

Let us know what you think of the brand new members of the barnwood series!

Let’s meet the new additions:

Appalchian Barnwood

Appalachian Barnwood

Out of the three new series, The Appalachian Barnwood Picture Frames most closely resembles the original barnwood color. This series has a natural rugged beauty unique to America’s heartland. This series like the original barnwood is effective in both modern homes as well as classic. The actual frame is a smooth profile that provides all the beauty of a barn without the splinters!

Farmhouse Barnwood

Farmhouse White    Farmhouse Charcoal

For those that have been a loyal customers for a couple of years you may be scratching your head and thinking “didn’t they already have a Farmhouse Barnwood series?”  and you would be correct! Back by popular demand our new and improved Farmhouse Barnwood series! This series comes in a white and a charcoal color and feature a 2″ wide flat profile. They are inspired by the look and feel of reclaimed barns.

Rocky Mountain Barnwood

Rocky Mountain barnwood

This series hasn’t quite hit the shelves yet but we’re too excited about this frame to not tell you all about it! If you are looking for a more pioneer feel to your home without traveling all the way back to covered wagons then our Rocky Mountain series is for you. Rocky Mountain has a distressed rough around the edges feel to it that resembles the look and feel of log cabins of the American Frontier. This series is made from Rocky Mountain Spruce Pine Fir. and has the texture that so many of our customers adored about the original barnwood series. Be on the look out for when this series hits the shelves because we’re confident it will be a fast seller!
