There’s a lot of art out there in the world that needs framing; posters, prints, paintings, tilework, etc. Much of it is custom sized and needs to be taken in to be measured by your local framers to give you the best fit and the best look. However there are a lot of standard sizes that art makers try to stick to to make it easy for galleries and private buyers to display their work. At Frame USA, while we can produce custom sized frames easily, we also have frames available in nearly every conceivable standard art size. This makes it easy when you have something and you want to find a picture frame for it quick and easy.
There are the small photo sizes that we are familiar with that the kids’ school pictures are usually released in. 4 x 6, 5 x 7, 8 x 10 and 11 x 14. These all include easel backs for standing on a desk or table, and there are some sizes in between like 8 x 12 and 7 x 7 that are available as standard.
There are plenty of mid range sizes. These fit items like theater posters and playbills from performances and concerts, and smaller watercolor paintings and art. You can get an 11 x 17 frame, 10 x 13, 13 x 19 are all sizes that go with these kinds of art.
If you’re wanting to find large large frames online, there are plenty of bigger standard sizes that will go with your movie posters and larger art prints. A 24 x 36 frame (or a 36 x 24 frame if your art is oriented landscape style) and 27 x 41 are both popular movie poster sizes. However 24 x 30 and 22 x 28 are also popular sizes as far as art prints are concerned.
So keep in mind that you don’t always need to get custom framing for your art. You can shop for photo frames online, or poster frames or any frames and find them in the frame sizes that you are looking for.
Summer is a time to lighten up your interior design; a time to give your rooms an airy, breezy feel. You can use paint color choices and furniture accessories like throw pillows and table runners to accomplish this. You can also use picture frames to give your design that beach-house feel. You can always use colorful picture frames to achieve a warm, festive feel, but sometimes that can go a bit too “kid’s room”. The perfect solution for lightening up your decor is using white picture frames. A white frame can be elegant and modern, clean and mature. At Frameusa we have several white picture frames that would make any of your art or photos pop.
As its name implies, the Beach White frame is a picture frame that is at home with the sun shining on it from across the ocean right outside your door. It comes in a wide and a narrow profile to best give your artwork the
Our white driftwood has two different wide profiles, one with a scoop and one with an outer bevel. It has a sligtly weathered appearance to give it that natural feel.
BLACK AND WHITE
The Black and White series has a sleek profile with a simple angular bevel along the inside. It comes in black and white, but the white is what we think would help your decor feel cheery and modern.
Finally, simplicity is the best way to achieve an inviting, casual decor. Our Corporate picture frames have a flat 1 1/4″ profile that could not be simpler. It comes in many colors, including white. A very chic and unpretentious frame to show off any style of artwork in any medium
So as the weather warms and you want to let the sun shine on a room that feels like a day on vacation, consider using white picture frames to brighten up your home.
The benefits of online shopping are many, some are obvious and some are seldom thought of. The obvious benefits are saving time and money by not needing to travel. There is no need for gas money and two hours of boredom to get to the only shop that carries what you need. Another big benefit is a lack of lines. You do not have to que up next to a counter to check out or ask for information. One of the less thought of benefits of online is that it is easier to compare different options from different retailers. There are some drawbacks as well. You have to wait for the product to be delivered, you usually have to go through the annoying experience of creating an account and there is also the risk of a cyber-attack. You can still benefit from the online experience by following a few simple guide lines.
Where you shop matters, even online. You should never do your online shopping form a public computer such as a library or from an open network like the one you would commonly find at a coffee shop. Your information is not secure in these environments and leave you open to being hacked.
Always verify that the checkout page is secure before entering in your payment information. This is easy t check . Go up to the top of your browser and see it the web page shows http://www.frameusa.com or https://www.frameusa.com . If it has https then you are good to go, if it does not have the s at the end then it is not secured.
Do not reload confirmation pages. When you reload a confirmation page from an online store it interrupts the process and goes to a default page instead of the confirmation page for your order. If the confirmation page is taking time the best thing is to be patient and let it load.
Keeping these safety guidelines in mind will help you have peace of mind so you can truly enjoy the convenience of shopping from home.
In 2008 I was in a local band. We played shows all over the country and were asked to play many local benefits. That summer we were asked to be a part of Relay for Life. Us and a group of other musicians would play round the clock for 24 hours as people walked a track at the Lebanon Speedway, earning pledges to raise money for cancer research. The organizer’s partner had been treated for cancer and was still going through chemo but they both were there. The organizer had come to all of us musicians to say that her partner loved TV show theme songs and to ask us each to learn one to play during our hour. My band learned Laverne and Shirley. Afterward, her partner made a point to come up to us after our shift and thank us and hug us and let us know how much she appreciated our show. She loved hearing our version of the song. I don’t know if she is still around, but I really hope so. So many people were there, staying up all night, walking that track for her. Wanting to show her that they weren’t giving up. It was humbling and inspiring. I truly hope she made it.
The Relay for Life is such an important event. It is held at tracks all across the country to raise money in the fight against cancer. It is expensive to fund research. So many people are involved and so much time and equipment are necessary to really give us a chance to find a cure. Grants and private donations can only stretch so far so it is up to survivors and friends and loved ones to try and help stretch the dollars devoted to research.
And it’s not just research that is expensive. The cost of treatment and drugs is astronomical and insurance doesn’t always cover all of it. Patients often are snowed under by their medical bills along with their families.
And speaking of their families, they also sometimes need to travel for treatment. They need to be with their family and need a place to stay. There are many places that provide temporary lodging to families who are with patients so they can be together but they need to be kept up. They need up to date facilities to help keep the families and patients comfortable and their spirits up. Relay for Life provides funding for this as well.
So please visit the Relay For Life page and find out how you can get involved. It’s important. It can save lives.
You spend a lot of time in your office or your cubicle. Your desk becomes a second home and you want to feel comfortable while you spend hours toiling away at your job. It’s nice to be able to look up and see photos of family and friends; pictures or even magazine clippings that remind us of the things we enjoy.
Sometimes there’s not much room on your desk for frames with easels and when you’re moving your hands around your desk you could knock them over and break them. Sometimes you don’t have the space for nice frames.
Bent acrylics are a great solution for this. Bent acrylic picture frames are clear plastic frames that are bent at an angle to create a “stand” that holds up the larger part of the piece. They are then bent around to create a slot that pictures can be inserted into the slot.
At Frameusa acrylic frames come in many sizes, most made to support standard photo sizes like 3.5×5,
4×6, 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14. They are perfect for popping in a pic of the kids or taking a larger one and using it for two pictures together.
So if you’re looking to spruce up your desk but have limited space (and want something very inexpensive) come over to Frame USA and grab a few of our bent acrylic frames for your favorite pics. The pics that keep you going throughout the day.
The Frame USA and Posterservice family are both sad and happy to announce the retirement of our good friend and colleague Cynthia Gabriel.
Cynthia started with Posterservice fifteen years ago in the Evendale office. She moved with the company when they opened a second location in Woodlawn, braving the heat and dark of the warehouse. When Frame USA and Posterservice moved together to our current office in Springdale, she came with and led the team in excellent service and hard work. She has been a valuable asset and we are going to miss her. We are excited for her to be able to fish and spend time with her grandkids though! Have fun Cynthia, and thanks so much!
The rustic trend in interior design isn’t going away anytime soon. Homespun, handcrafted styling is very popular. When you’re looking for picture frames to frame your art in, if your decor is rustic or country, we have a collection of wood frames that will fit in perfectly with your design. It’s the Frame USA Barnwood collection. Our Barnwood frames come in a number of varieties. Some are molded to resemble barn wood and some are actual reclaimed barn wood taken from barns and farmhouses across the country. Both are ideal for giving your room a down home look.
The Original “Barnwood” Frame:
This was the first Barnwood frame we had. It is made from reclaimed Barnwood, complete with knots and imperfections that show it’s authenticity. Being reclaimed is also great because it’s environmentally friendly and gives new life to old wood, keeping it useful and helping to use fewer resources.
Very similar to the Barnwood series, the Signature Barnwood series comes in two widths, 2 7/8″ and 3 5/8″. This frame is also made from real reclaimed barn wood and looks great with a slightly different profile than the original so you could have them side by side for a nice visual effect.
The Appalachian is a barnwood style frame that is made from normal lumber but finished to give it a barnwood feel. This is for when you like the barnwood look but don’t want the imperfections. When you want a frame with a more consistent look. It comes in grey, rustic black, rustic brown and whitewash.
Our Farmhouse Barnwood frame is another wood frame finished to resemble barnwood. It has a flat profile for a fun mix of modern styling with that rustic appeal.
When you want to display something that requires a little more depth than a picture frame can provide–maybe a collectible or memento–you can still get the rustic barnwood look with our Barnwood Shadowbox. It has a 2 1/8″ width and a 1 1/2″ depth and comes in 10 standard sizes.
So if you’re looking to spruce up a room with some rustic accents, check out the Barnwood Collection at Frame USA!
We all remember that moment. The moment when we received our acceptance letter to college and the sheer joy we got when we realized we’re officially moving out of mom and dads. While college classes and finding new friends can be intimating, there is nothing more exciting than picking out your college dorm décor! This is the time where you can let your personality shine through and can feel confident about your room. While college students may not have a very large space to work with, this is the time to get creative.
While curtains, bedding, and lighting can define your style, there is nothing better than artwork to make your dorm room pop! Posters and art prints can be visual representations of your style. They should be something you’re happy with to see every day. So we suggest picking something with similar color schemes and images that blend in rather than stand out in a negative way. Classic dorm room posters range from Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe to music legends and humor posters.
Posters can be a great addition to any wall because they can be symbols of who you are, where you came from and most importantly, where you are going. While decorating can be quite expensive, posters are great savings to your wallet. You can find most art, inspirational, and humor posters for less than $7.00. Pair two or three of your favorite posters and you’re looking at $20.00. Framing your hand selected posters, will make them last longer and save you money. Poster frames are a great way to make your posters stand out. They also help eliminate creasing and ripping.
Whatever your style may be, there will always be a poster or print to match. So go ahead, and hang whatever makes you smile. Remember, you’ll be in this room for a year so this is the time to let your personality shine!
Since about the age of 5 (maybe even before, but I was too young to remember) I have been into drawing, painting, and writing. When I was little I used to write poetry and short stories for my aunts and uncles. Even to this day I will write wedding announcements and poems for someone in love, looking to get engaged and even those who have passed on.
Once I got into my teenage years I continued to enjoy drawing and writing, but it seemed fashion design constantly stayed on my mind. Over the years I have allowed my hobby to help me create wonderful things for other people. I used the internet to help teach myself how to sew and have made clothing, pillows and all kinds of amazing things. I have re-designed shoes, lamps and even painted cartoon characters on my kids’ bedroom walls.
The past few years however, I have used my creative bones to make unique diaper cakes and gifts. This is where I take a box of diapers, a baby blanket and maybe a few other baby items to create beautiful gifts for moms and dads to be. I have made diaper tricycles, diaper babies, diaper cakes and so much more.
The thing I love most about being creative is that art itself is so versatile and comes in so many forms. Art is more than just a painting or drawing; it’s more than singing or playing notes on a piano. Art is anything and everything you want it to be. Art can be hair design, dance, singing and acting. Expressing ones art is more than just dabbling in a hobby now and then. In my opinion, if you a love a hobby strong enough, it’s no longer considered a hobby in my eyes. It soon becomes a passion and an essential part of who you are and what you are really destined to be!
