Our Materials

In order to provide our customers with the best product available, all of our frame profiles and materials are 100% made in the USA. Wholesale Poster Frames carries over 500,000 feet of the most popular frame molding styles and finishes in our 25,000 square foot warehouse located in Derby, CT. Purchasing framing materials by the trailer load gives us the ability to sell quality protection and materials for your framed pictures and posters at a reasonable cost. Each frame is manufactured in our warehouse, cut to order by a computerized saw and assembled by our skilled team of frame makers.

Frame Profiles

Being 100% made in the USA, our frame profiles are of the highest quality. Each frame takes a great amount of detail and care to create and individually cut per order to exact specifications. Our Aluminum frame profiles are anodized to increases the metal's durability, color stability and ease of maintenance.

Our eco-friendly Wood MDF frame profiles are made out of Medium-density Fiberboard (MDF). This wood-like material is sturdy and dense, ideal for frame mouldings. MDF material is made from recycled, recovered, and otherwise unusable wood, requiring fewer trees and leaving a smaller carbon footprint than solid wood frames, making it a "greener" and sustainable alternative. The designs and colors on the Wood MDF frames are a decorative veneer.

To see the popular frame styles that are always in stock, please visit our Profiles page, where you can also find a description of what frame profile will fit your needs best. Additional profile styles are always available via special order.

Lens Covers

To ensure that your frame protects your framed photos and posters as well as displaying them, we use Framing Grade Plastic Lens Covers. When comparing to standard glass, Plastic Lens Covers such as Acrylic are 10 to 20 times more resistant to impact, half the weight, easier to handle, economical to ship, and a much safer alternative. As an added bonus, our Lens Covers have exceptional optical quality.

All of our lens covers are 100% Made in the USA. Clarity, strength, and affordability are crucial when selecting a lens cover. Our lens covers offer properties that traditional glass simply cannot measure up to. Each of our lens covers are lightweight and easy to clean. Our current lens covers available for online purchase are Clear Acrylic, Non-Glare Acrylic and Clear Oversize Lens Covers. Additional lens covers such as Clear and Non-glare Styrene, PETG and a UV PET, are available to bulk commercial customers, through email inquiries only.

Frame Backings

Our acid-free foamcore and corrugated plastic frame backings provide more protection for your photos, posters, and artwork than any common cardboard backing can. Cardboard backings are highly acidic and do very little to protect your framed photo or poster from moisture and mildew. With an acid-free foamcore or corrugated plastic backing, your posters and photos will be preserved and protected.

A foamcore backing consists of three layers: a thick inner core of polystyrene (a stiff foam), and a layer of protective paper on either side. Our acid-free foamcore backings are ideal if you are looking to hang your frame in a dry climate. A corrugated plastic backing is ideal for protection against extreme handling and damp conditions because it is resistant to moisture and most oils and solvents.

At any given time, we carry in excess of 10,000 backings that range in size, thickness, and type. Our frame backings are also 100% Made in the USA and designed to specifically fit your frame. Each frame backing comes from a premier manufacturer of foam board products for signage, display, and graphics, guaranteeing that it is the highest quality possible. The backing choices we offer are: Acid Free Foamcore and Corrugated Plastic. For more information on which backings are available and which would best suit your framing needs, please visit our Backings page.
