Why Custom Frames Are Better Than a Basic Frame Kit

You have a framing project to do. At the end of the day, you want a nice display on your wall — something that you could look at while walking past, as well as something you could show off to your company that comes over. People like presentable homes. And having decorated walls is a big part of that. A common approach to this is a “frame kit” — the bits and pieces you get that will result in a finished frame. This can be great, and it certainly can lead to a long project — something to keep you engaged over a long period of time. Indeed, we often get questions about frame kits in our support inbox.

But if you order a frame, we at Frame It Easy think you should be getting, well, a frame. When you open the box upon receiving your order, you should at least get an idea of what your order frame should look like when completed (i.e. when the art is inserted!).

This is why we don’t send frame kits, but a preassembled frame that will either only take a few easy steps to insert your art, or one that’s 100% put together and ready for display. Which one it is, of course, is dependent on if you order a print with your order or not. So what are the benefits of ordering a frame from us rather than a kit from someone else? Well, let’s have a look.

You See The Final Product as Soon as You Take It Out of the Box

You finally receive your frame, and the second you take it out of the box, you know what it will look like. That’s the key difference between ordering a frame versus a frame kit. Assembling a frame kit might take time, and you never know what the exact final product will look like until it’s finished. Preview photos and the like exist, but there’s nothing quite like seeing the final frame, in hand and fully assembled, and you didn’t have to break a sweat. This is what we do; ship you a complete frame that you’ll be able to see immediately.

There is a certain degree of professionalism, too, about having a full frame right off the bat, which leads us to our next point…

Professionally Assembled, Better Quality

We’re certainly not doubting your personal craftsmanship. If your niche is putting things together and working with tools, you could almost certainly put together a frame kit with the same level of proficiency as someone who does it for a living.

Or, you might not be as adept with a screwdriver, or the like. This might lead to problems on your end, but on our end, it’s easy! We specialize in making frames, so leave the full assembly work to us. No need to do it on your end!

You Save Time

We get it: You’re probably busy. Either with your job, with your family, or with both. This means that you probably don’t want to set hours aside to assemble a fully dismantled kit, just to get the same product as you would with one of our frames, which is a framed piece on your wall. This means less time spent hassling through tiny screws and nails, and enjoying the finished product.

Getting The Hang Of It

Here at Frame It Easy, we think that this should be fun. Some things you get for the joy of assembling: puzzles, model kits, and the like. Frames are not one of those things, though- at least we think not. They should require minimal to no assembly, and the process should overall be, well, easy!

You’ll likely experience the following by ordering a frame from us:

  • Saved time.
  • A better preview of the final product.
  • And something that’s professionally assembled.
