Attention Artists! Photograph Your Artwork For FREE!


Put Yourself in A Good Frame of Mind, and use this summer to organize your work and prepare it for fine art reproduction and online sales. For a limited time, from now through July 30, 2010, we are offering FREE photography of your paintings & drawings for fine art reproduction and online sales in the American Frame Art Gallery .


Come and join the fun! We’ve launched a Summer Special for artists who paint, draw or work in mixed media. If you are interested in selling your artwork online, professionally photographing your art is critically important. To produce a quality, fine art reproduction, your work needs to be photographed at a very high resolution, in an evenly lit setting, and color correct to insure that the reproduction mimics the original, preferably at full size. Now through Friday, July 30, we are offering you this service at no charge through the American Frame Photography Department. To coordinate, please contact our Showroom or simply swing by and speak with Lisa, Nora or Anna at 419-893.5595, #6. Or, if you would like to speak with our photographer directly about your work before sending it or making a delivery, feel free to contact Matt Mickel at 419-887-8049, mattm@americanframe.com.


Photography service includes free assistance with complete set up in the American Frame Online Art Gallery for interested artists. This offer is limited to 15 paintings per artist. Requests will be scheduled on a first come first serve basis, so order early to make sure you get into the schedule. High resolution files for printing will be archived at American Frame. The artist will receive a low res jpeg of each image which can be emailed for marketing and promotional purposes. Artist is responsible for transportation of works to and from the American Frame Showroom, Maumee , OH . Artists will also be considered for a presence in the next American Frame Handbook scheduled for printing and mailing in Spring of 2011. We are also offering a 20% discount on all prints ordered with free photography. Choose from a variety of fine art and photographic papers, or canvas. What better way to prepare for shows and have your work presented at it’s best online?

Just For Fun, Take a Look at Our Jersey Frame


This is the easiest way we have found to display and preserve a professional sports jersey. Traditionally, when a customer has brought us a jersey to frame, we would happily build a custom, shadow boxed, sealed environment to house it. Though beautiful, this old means of jersey display is expensive and permanent.


Enter the Nielsen Bainbridge display case! Simply hang your jersey in the case and snap it shut, and hang it on your wall. It is full size (32x40), easy to use and keeps your jersey accessible. Feel free to change it out seasonally with other jerseys in your collection or wear it for those all important championship games (after which, of course it can be washed and returned to its case)!


Jersey frames are on sale now through July 6th.

New Frame Collection: EcoCare Black Woods




Introducing EcoCare Blackwoods by Nurre Caxton!


We are pleased to announce the addition of three matte black wood mouldings featuring eco-friendly water-based gesso coatings which covers the wood grain for a smooth satin finish. It’s our most popular wood frame finish.


All frames in the EcoCare line are manufactured from responsibly harvested woods with water-based finishes which is important for the total recyclability of the product. EcoCare can go literally from "cradle to grave" and then back to cradle again, just like aluminum.


The 95204 is identical to our Basics L989 but is a better choice for the environment, so we encourage you to make the switch if you’ve been using that frame. Likewise, the new 96404 is very similar to the 8411 but not quite as wide - it’s 1 1/2” as opposed to 1 7/8” as the prices are the same.


Lastly, the 96404 is a deeper boxier frame, not quite as dramatic as our Infinity 49302, which makes it a nice Transitional style choice when depth is a requirement for the frame treatment.


If you would like to see samples before trying online, contact us with your request and we’ll ship them right out.
