So, we’d like to call your attention to one of our favorites, the Ashford frame a thin metal frame that exudes a beautiful aesthetic but won’t distract from what’s inside that really matters. It has a flat profile face that is ⅜” wide made from extruded aluminum that’s either anodized or powder-coated (processes to create a decorative, durable, and corrosion-resistant finish) and of course is made in America. It comes in eight colors, satin black, silver, and gold, gloss black, silver, and gold, white and hot pink. It is the perfect decorative accessory for just about any artwork, photograph, or another piece you may want to frame.
