As many of you know, the Frame USA and Posterservice Inc. retail store has just undergone an extensive renovation. To celebrate the Grand Reopening on November 1st, 2013 Frame USA will be doing a special giveaway event for the first 500 customers to visit the store. Those customers will receive a FREE 36”x24” poster of the Cincinnati Skyline! Local Cincinnati artists like Keith Allen often take beautiful shots of the Cincinnati Skyline and other notable parts of the city. Keith, as a self taught photographer, has kindly provided us with this stunning image (pictured below). We are very excited to be able to share this poster with all of you!
“[Keith Allen] shoots architecture, people, nature, travel, scenic, macro, product, concerts & sports. Keith is still learning new techniques daily, and is working diligently to expand his horizons in the photographic field. ’I attribute most of my learning to RC Conception, Scott Kelby, and a bunch of others at Kelbytraining.com along with many other resources on the internet. I shoot the world as I see it and try to duplicate it in an artistic way that I perceive it in my mind’s eye.’ “
If you’re an artist or photographer, we’d love to hear from you! Whether you’d like your work featured on our blog or see yourself as a soon-to-be customer, we’d love to hear your thoughts. You can leave a comment below, or reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter. If you fall into the category of one of our Cincinnati artists, keep in touch by visiting our retail store! We frequently host artwork and charitable events based out of our retail store on Northland Boulevard. Feel free to drop in and say hello, and don’t forget to pick up a print by Cincinnati artists like Keith Allen while you’re with us. (Maybe a frame to go with it, too?)
Back in September, we closed our doors to remodel our retail store located in Cincinnati, Ohio. While there was nothing particularly wrong with the store, it was a bit too large for what we were trying to accomplish. Demands change, artists change, and framing changes. Likewise, we thought it was time for our shop to change! Frame USA Cincinnati promises to be a big deal for the local art community.
Frame USA’s retail store went under a very big remodel. Rather than expand and offer more ready-made selection, we decided to downsize and become more efficient. Frame USA Retail Store will now function much the same as our main website. We have a wide selection of Corporate, Closeout and Architect frames ready-made and available to you, but for everything else, we make it to order!
We also brought some features from our website into the store. Remember Build a Frame? We have all of our websites available and open to the public, whether you’d like to search for posters on Posterservice or run through some options on Build A Frame. We also have our custom framing station back, where our friendly staff can guide you through the process of selecting and designing your framed art to perfection. This, of course, remains at the lowest prices on the market!
Our poster inventory has also been reduced in the store, but never fear! Using the touch screen, you will be able to find anything you’re looking for. Our easy-to-navigate website allows you to search for nearly any image you can think of, from decorative art to Bob Marley prints. Just ask one of our employees and they’ll be glad to find the print for you. You can also visit Posterservice.com or FrameUSA.com and we would be glad to pull the items for you ahead of time.
