Double-sided SnapeZo® frames are great for hanging in store windows or suspending from ceilings. SnapeZo™ double-sided frames come with pre-threaded holes for easy fixing of supplied hanging bolts for hanging in either portrait or landscape position. Here's a demonstration video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxqthyc7mSU
SnapeZo® window frames are the perfect solution for showing your posters both inside and outside a glass window. Perfect for retail stores, restaurants and movie theaters. Here's a demonstration video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vB57r3q93Y
SnapeZo® locking aluminum poster cases are designed when security is a concern but you also need quick and easy access to changing the contents. The cases have a very solid construction and come with two key sets.
We have a great video showing how the posters are displayed in our poster cases https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVlE89m9WR4
All our snap frames come with a non-glare PVC cover, a super white styrene backing 1mm (40/1000'') and all required mounting hardware to screw to a flat wall service. Most of our Snap Frames are pre-assembled but some larger sizes are shipped as kits as they would be expensive and prone to damage in shipping. Self-Assembly Snap Frames have product code SNAPX- and are for easy self-assembly.
The thickness of the backing of our snap frames is 40/1000 of an Inch .Our snap frame backing is 'Super White' which gives your poster a great 'pop' or vibrance compared with some snap frames which come with a dull gray backing. Some poorer quality Snap Frames even have particle board backing which is prone to warping and buckling or even going moldy and damaging your artwork and even your health.
We are unable to ship snap frame extrusion but can supply snap frame kits in any size that you may require. Snap Frame extrusion contains pre-loaded springs and requires specialist knowledge and tools to cut. So much better to use our custom-snap frame service and have it arrive as a kit for easy assembly. Many customers use such kits for manufacturing their own Light Boxes.
There are no conventional frames available with acid-free backings or covers anywhere in the world. SnapeZo frames do not come with acid free backing or covers. The solution to this used by Museums and collectors worldwide is to purchase Archival envelopes - fit your posters into these prior to framing in SnapeZo or any other frame. SnapeZo non-reflective covers are excellent at PVC protection and also you do not risk ever having any damage by broken glass. The mast majority of damage to valuable posters is from broken glass.
Unfortunately we do not currently offer backlit signs though we have had many customers successfully use our snap frames and add them to their own light boxes. Because our backing is bright white translucent styrene, the light shines through and customers are really happy with the results.
The profile refers to the border that surrounds your graphic. This is referencing the width of the portion of the frame. If you view the thumbnails on the website, you will see to the right a diagram of a cross-section of the frame profile.
We do offer a weather-resistant SnapeZo frame which has an additional gasket. However, all of our snap frames are suitable for outdoor use. We do recommend that you laminate your artwork before displaying in areas that get direct rain or high humidity.
Window SnapeZo frames have one cover, the back cover is the glass of the window that the frame fixes to. Designed for a restaurant to show a menu to guest both inside the restaurant and outside looking in through a window.
We offer a Double-Sided frame, to show a poster put on both sides of the frame.
You could also purchase a snap frame from us and then replace the translucent backing with clear perspex you purchase locally but the back of the frame is not finished so would be raw metal.
All of our frames are suitable for outdoor use. However, we do recommend you laminate your posters when displaying out of doors. We do offer weather-resistant frames: https://snapezo.com/pages/search-results-page?q=weather+resistant&tab=products
The size of a picture frame worldwide is described as the size of glass which will fit in it. The photograph or poster which fits in it will also be the same size. Some of the PVC protective film and therefore poster or photograph is hidden by the rebate of the snapframe which is there to stop the PVC falling out the front. This varies from frame to frame and is typically less than 1/4 inch.
A picture frame size anywhere in the world describes the poster size that will fit in it.
For SnapeZo it is also the size of the UV protecting cover.
A 24x36 SnapeZo frame will hold a 24x36 Poster and also a 24x36 UV protecting cover.
All poster frames in the world hide a small part of a poster or certificate, a small border is hidden all around by the frame profile. This is why most posters and certificates do not show information in these extreme edges, may even have an unprinted white border.
So in the case of any 24x36 frame in the world - the visible area may typically be from 23 x 35 to 23.5x35.5
These frames are designed to be screwed to the wall and have pre-drilled holes in the back of the frame. The backing of the frame is styrene. We have had customers create a system to display these frames out-of-doors on a stake and they are thrilled with the results.
The frames are designed for wall installation and so the back offers no structural support, it would be better to purchase the 1.44 or 2.2-inch profile as this width of frame offers much more support. The 1.25 inch would actually look great and if the easel offers reasonable support would sit flat but when you are handling the frame it may appear flexible as its simply not designed for this use. We also offer frames to hold 1/4 inch thick material, this would enable you to have your poster mounted on thick board prior to framing. Many of our customers make wooden box structures to hold LEDs and then simply attach the 1.25-inch frames to these boxes, taking advantage of the translucent white backing to make backlit LED boxes real cheap, this may be something that could work for you also.
It will be your choice. These double-sided frames open and close exactly the same as any of our frames, but typically they are high up, so you would be standing on a ladder with someone assisting you, passing posters, etc.. You will need to take great care. In many situations it may make more sense and be safer to take them down and chan
Our regular snap frames can accommodate posters up to 1/10" thick. We do offer specially made snap frames for foam core posters, however not currently in this size. We do offer custom made snap frames up to thicknesses of 0.39" thick. We would be happy to assist further, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
SnapeZo covers are the best quality available. The clear are the clearest, and the non-glare are the best non-glare available. We could buy PVC which is 75% cheaper but we do not. Competitors PVC is often cloudy/milky and discolors very quickly in the sun. However, just like your phone screens, it is prone to scratching and just like phone screens, scratches are not covered by warranty. The best care is to wash with soapy water, then rinse and to let dry naturally, avoid rubbing with a cloth.
The non-glare PVC cover is designed to reduce the glare of light so that your poster can convey its message and be viewed from any angle in bright settings such as Retail Environments. 99.5% of our customers appreciate this great feature as they know their message or promotion will be seen by their target audience at any angle, as they walk along a mall, past a store, etc. Very occasionally, customers are using the frames in an environment where there is no glare or such issues. On these occasions they may prefer a crystal clear (but glossy) finish cover.
The PVC covers are very different and provide very different options. The clear cover is used mostly in situations where there is not much lighting that affects the visibility of the graphic. The Non-reflective cover provides added visibility when the frame is used in an area that has more lighting such as fluorescent lighting. These are not normally used together.This is also a personal preference for the frame owner. Give both a try and see what works best in your situation.
We don't recommend wire, as you will lose the functionality of a SnapeZo frame. If you do wish to hang on a hook, you can use one of the slide-on hanger provided - with no wire. However, if this is your preferred method, its is certainly possible - watch this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuZKcafrmzE Many of our customers are preferring https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ9RZt0_qMk
Also be aware that there are single holes mid centre which will allow you to hang on a single nail in the wall and also that you can drill anywhere you prefer in the aluminium and fit your own preferred hanging hardware.
