  • Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both died on July 4th 1826.

Floater Frames

Floater Frames and Our New Print-On-Demand Service

Floater Frames for Canvas Prints

Frame USA has recently added to our growing list of services an Amazon.com print-on-demand site. As we mentioned in our recent blog post here, this meant adding a new large format printer to our team in order to increase our productivity.

We offer a huge selection of beautiful art prints and photography that we can now quickly print on high quality canvas. One of the most popular ways our customers choose to have their canvas prints displayed is with our floater frames.

Floater Frames

We stretch the canvas over the floater frames, which gives a sleek and clean look to your art prints. Since the frame is underneath the art, there are no distractions and the image is completely visible! Floater frames make it easy to hang art in your home with a professional look. Many artists and photographers even use floater frames to display their original work.

Using a floater frame for prints or artwork also adds a three dimensional look to the piece. Floater frames get their name from the illusion of floating that they create. The extra dimension it gives your art will really make anyone viewing it even more interested!

Visit our amazon store here to purchase art prints displayed on floater frames, or to get a floater frame for your own artwork visit the floater frame section of our website here.

Unfinished & Decorate-It Picture Frames

Decorative Picture Frames

When doing DIY projects we suggest using our Decorate-it Picture Frames or our Unfinished Picture Frames. These Decorative Picture Frames are perfect for people with that do-it-yourself spirit. Created especially for crafting, these frames can be painted, stained and decorated with ease.

Decorative Picture Frames
Decorative Picture Frames

Our Decorate-It Series is an unfinished decorative picture frame with a flat profile that comes in 3 different widths (1.5″, 2″ or 3″). It is created especially for crafting. You can paint it, glue on it, and use a wood burning pen, anything you can think of to decorate the frame.

Additionally, our Unfinished Series is another unfinished decorative picture frame (as the name might suggest). Like the Decorate It, the Unfinished series comes in 3 different profiles, but these are more intricate with some scoops and beveling in the frame. This picture frame could be painted and decorated in a classy way to help enhance the ascetics of your art.

Both our Unfinished and Decorate-It lines have the crafty folk in mind. These are great for both kids and adults alike, but you’ll definitely get your money’s work when you use these as kid’s craft projects. You can use all of your favorite crafting materials to make it, and a trip to your local art and craft store should inspire you to make some great artwork.

Large Frame with Frame USA

Large Frame Sizes

Large Frame Sizes
Large Frame Sizes

It is important for us to clarify how our sizes work in general. In our experience, these are the most popular and most utilized large frame sizes overall. These large frame sizes cover a wide range and our most popular sizes are:

16 × 20

16x20 Large Frames
16×20 Large Frames

Our 16 × 20 Picture Frame is a great size 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. Our 16 × 20 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 also a perfect size to go with when using wider picture frames.

18 x 24

18x24 Large Frames
18×24 Large Frames

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.

24×36
24x36 Large Frames
24×36 Large Frames

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. 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. For those with the “go big or go home” mindset, you may want to aim for this size or larger. If you have a 24×36 or larger poster, we definitely recommend a frame to keep your art scratch-free and to highlight the print as a whole.

27 x 40

27x40 Large Frames
27×40 Large Frames

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.

We hope this article has provided you with all of the information you may need when ordering our picture frames. Remember, if you need any help with your poster frames, please call 800.577.5920 or click here if you have custom framing needs.
