Why Island Frames?

There are lots of picture frame options out there - from cheap novelty frames to high-end, hand carved museum frames. All of these have their own specific purpose and audience type. Cheap picture frames, though low quality, are an affordable option for use as table toppers and take-aways at an event or wedding. Better quality, custom wood frames are more expensive but with that expense comes durability and longevity - these frames are typically used in homes, offices, hotels, etc.

Where does Island Frames fit into the picture frame spectrum? We are certainly not in the category of cheap quality, discount, or disposable and we're not quite in the hand carved, high-end category either. Our picture frames are the same great quality as any you'd find at a custom picture framing shop. The key differentiators between us and custom picture frame shops are - price (we're way more affordable), convenience and flexibility. When you order a picture frame from Island Frames, you get a complete package; Frame, 2" Matboard, Acrylic, MDF Backing and Hanging Hardware. You simply open the back, attach your artwork and hang it up. Tired of the artwork but love the frame? Swap it out. You can't easily do that with custom framed artwork without cutting open the back.

We realize the need for custom framing, cheap frames, expensive hand-carved frames and everything in between. Island Frames doesn't exactly fit into any of those areas, we want to offer our customers a new category that combines top quality with low prices and do-it-yourself flexibility. We hope you'll try our frames for your artwork soon.

Island Frames is now live!

Welcome to Island Frames! Yes, we sell picture frames. Yes, they are top quality. Yes, they are a great price. But the real reason we stand out is because our goal is to keep it simple. Most picture frame websites require many steps or require costly add-ons to get a complete, ready to hang, picture frame. At Island Frames, each of our picture frames are available in all of the standard sizes and include acrylic, matboard, MDF backing and hanging hardware all in one complete, pre-assembled package. To attach your artwork, simply open the back, affix your art to the MDF backing, close and hang.

Our easy-open-back frames are the complete package for anyone looking to hang their own artwork, photography, certificates and more. Our picture frames are 100% wood and assembled by hand - they will be the perfect compliment to the artwork you fill them with.

We went live with a select set of picture frame collections but will continue to add more as we grow. Your suggestions and requests are important to us so please let us know what you need.
