Snap Frames for Posters: How do they work?

Snap frames for posters are incredibly popular across a wide range of stores and restaurants. Snap frames have hinged sides that open and then ‘snap’ shut to hold print in place. They can sometimes known as clip frames, grip frames or snapper frames. These frames are incredibly easy to use and update, making them a popular frame for businesses. 


Snap Frames for Posters and Other Advertising Materials

Businesses use snap frames for posters, signs, menus, price lists, businesses notices, photographs & images, and product information to name a few. They are a quick and easy way to relay information to a consumer without verbally doing so. They can be used to grab people’s attention, whether it’s to inform, educate, or promote. When it comes to display poster frames, it’s important to use a frame that is simple in its design, but high in quality. 


Good Value Poster Holders

Snap frames are visually more attractive than most poster holders. However, they are not as expensive as photo frames. Therefore, they have proved popular for businesses and other organisations. Visit any pub, club, gym, library or shop and there is likely to be a snap frame used to frame important print in that location. 


Are all snap frames the same?

If you are looking to buy clip frames it’s important you are going to a quality supplier.  Firstly the quality of the hinged mechanism on the frame edges is essential to the quality of the frame, especially if you will be updating them regularly. A high quality hinge is designed to be used many 100’s of times. A poor quality hinge will not last as long and means the whole snap frame will need to be replaced. That makes them a poor investment even at a lower initial cost.

The quality of the finish is important too. Used inside or outdoors, a poor quality finish will tarnish and peel quickly making the snap frame look cheap. A high quality finish will last much longer – again avoiding the need to be replaced.

A good quality snap frame will also be robust enough to be used in even the busiest environment. Look for snap frames made from natural anodised aluminium. A good profile width should be used too. This is because it should provide a snap frame with the ability to withstand the knocks and bumps of everyday life – even if used outside. 

Smart, great value and available in a huge range of sizes, snap frames offer a great way to hang print in any organisation.
