If you haven't seen the demo yet, please take a minute (literally) to watch this quick video. It really tells the story. This video shows our old 5second® frames – can't wait to update with a new video of the new & improved frames.
Will they be in stores? You can only get them here--online. Unlike all those big-box imports, we make our frames here in the USA –Using high quality, professional grade materials. So, they cost (a lot) more to make… Selling them online lets us keep our prices low.
Will there be more sizes? Yes, we’ll carry the most popular sizes, starting with 5x7, 8x10. We'll add 4x6 and 11x14 just as soon as possible. 8x8, too.
How about colors and styles? We’re sticking with the classics: Black, white, and a deep wood tone (Alder). Our ultra simple ‘loft’ or museum style profile was designed to look good in all kinds of home décor. So, we’ll carry this profile for – well – ever. Unlike the big box stores that change styles every year, the frames you buy two years from now will match the ones you get today.
But, we are fans of change… If there’s enough demand for a traditional ‘carved’ style, we’ll add it to the mix. Join our mailing list, and you can vote in our polls to determine what we add to our line.
I already have 5second® frames... What's so different about Change of Art®? OMG – where to begin... Change of Art® looks better: With wider, thicker mats, and a substantial wood frame with a durable finish that's guaranteed for color matching. Change of Art® works better: Loading and changing prints is much easier, and hanging is easy and secure. Stores 2X more prints, too.
Best of all, they're professional grade, eco-friendly – and 100% made in the USA. (Try and find that in a big box store.)
Will they match my 5second® frames? Sizes and proportions won't be an exact match: Our mats are wider and thicker; frames are deeper, but our colors should coordinate nicely.
Do you have any 'collage' frames? We have a double 5x7, and we'll be adding a triple 4x6 as soon as possible (summer?). Of course, everything's designed to look good and work together.
Do the new hangers work with other frames? They work perfectly with Change of Art® frames, of course. They work fine with the old 5second™ frames, too. Much more secure than the old ones. (They won't work with other frames - unless you're really handy with a router.)
