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.
