Sales of snap frame poster holders are growing – and we take a look at the reasons for the growth in this feature.
For the uninitiated, snap frames are photo or poster holders whose frame ‘snaps’ into place to hold the print. Usually an acrylic cover protects the print – but this is not compulsory. Buyers find snap frames are easy to use initially and then to update the image when required. They are usually wall mounted using pre-drilled holes but freestanding snap frames and A-frame snap frames are also readily available.
Why snap frames are on the up
There are a number of reasons why snap frame poster holders continue to grow in popularity.
Firstly, it is easy to buy high quality snap frames that will last. When buying, look out for frames manufactured from anodised aluminium. Using anodised aluminium adds to the strength and durability of the frame. Look out for a smooth shutting operation. If buying online look for a reputable retailer and check their Returns Policy and any product reviews.
Snap frames are also very popular due to the wide range of colours that they are available in. Although silver snap frames have been considered the ‘classic’ look they can also be purchased in colours such as white, black, red, green & blue. This has meant they can be used in lots of interiors. Kids love the bright colours that look great in their bedroom, and retailers have been able to incorporate the colours in their displays.
Another reason for the expanding sales is their sheer versatility. In homes, in offices, in shops and just about everywhere else snap frames offer a great way to display photos, posters and other print. Smarter looking than standard poster holders, and better value than traditional picture frames snap frames can be used in loads of locations. In standard sizes such as A4 snap frames and A3 snap frames, you can be sure that you’ll be able to find the perfect frame for your print.
More reason to be snap frames happy
A complete snap frames range might also include tamper resistant and lockable snap frames – ideal when security and peace of mind are important. And silver snap frame light boxes are ideal for retailers, hoteliers, salon owners etc etc – allowing them to create a stunning light-filled display that can be updated really easily. They incorporate high powered LED lighting and can run without servicing for 10,000 hours. For receptions areas, waiting room, exhibitions and trade shows floor standing snap frames are just the job.
Who buys snap frames?
Firstly, they are perfect for the home – a really smart way to display posters that you love and family photos you treasure. They are ideal for framing memories that last a lifetime – exam certificates, good news letters and newspaper articles. They are brilliant for kids’ bedrooms and playrooms – as one boy band fades away, their posters and pics are easily replaced by pictures of the very coolest new pop sensation.
For businesses, snap frames are invaluable. They are a smart way to frame essential info such as insurance or professional certifications. They complement photos, posters and brand communications. They look brilliant in shops, build brand in cafes and coffee shops and add a smart touch to waiting rooms and reception areas. Exhibitions and trade shows also benefit from snap frames as they can be a durable and smart finishing touch to your exhibition space.
Great value snap frames
Another reason for their continuing popularity is their price; they have dropped in price as demand grows and competition keeps prices competitive. Beware of cheap imitations, though and look for high quality snap frames – they might be more expensive initially but will offer the best value over the long run.
