Spin Art Card Frames

Spin Art Card Frames
Easel-back cardstock paper frames, like the ones shown above, are perfect for holding and displaying 5″ x 7″ spin art card inserts.

Spin art is a popular activity at carnivals, birthday parties, school fun fairs, summer camp, festivals, and events. Also called twirl art, spin art machines can be rented at carnival and party rental supply companies.

Paint (and sometimes glitter) is squeezed or dripped onto a paper card that is attached to a spinning platform creating an abstract piece of art. For decades, spin art has been a carnival staple because it is a fun and interactive arts and crafts activity that results in an instant novelty souvenir that can be taken home. It is also a proven money maker at fundraising events.

Most spin art cards measure 5″ x 7″, which fit nicely into one of our 5″ x 7″ cardboard or paper photo frames. Spin art card holders can also be personalized with your event name or logo!

Nightclub Photography for Event Promotion

Need an idea for nightclub and bar promotion? Try nightlife photography!

Nightclub photographers are hired to walk around and take photos of people enjoying themselves at events. While posed shots of couples or groups of friends are the most popular type of photo, dance and party candids also make great shots.

Club Photo Frames
An example of the type of paper frames that they put pictures in at the club.

Paper picture holders are great tools for nightlife photogs and event promoters to sell the pictures in. Photo frames add value to ordinary photos. Set up a laptop and a printer on-site, print photos, and slide into an inexpensive photo holder to sell at the end of the night. Some event promoters also choose to give the pictures away for free as photo souvenirs.

Photography can work anywhere, but the bars and restaurants in popular tourist areas do best. Often times the people there are on vacation, at a special outing or celebrating a birthday or other occasion and are eager to have their picture taken there.

Another situation where club photography works well is if your venue is having a special event such as a company sponsored party or theme night.

Nightclub photography can add excitement and fun to a night out and are a memorable take-home keepsake for party goers. The use of custom-branded photo frames will also boost brand awareness and serve as added advertising for your next big event.

Cardboard Photo Frames For VBS

Mailable vacation bible school follow-up photo frames are a valuable outreach tool.

Looking for an idea to connect with families after vacation bible school (VBS) ends? Paper and cardboard photo frames are a fun and effective outreach tool. Take individual photos of the kids participating in crafts and activities, or take a group shot of the entire class. After VBS or church camp ends, mail each child a souvenir photo frame with their picture inside!

VBS FollowUp Photo Frame
Send us your art, and we’ll print custom photo frames for any VBS theme! Add your church’s name, a thank you message or anything you’d like!

Photo frame mailers can be foil imprinted (hot stamped) or printed with your church name, or use a stamp or sticker to personalize them yourself! Add additional text to thank the child for coming and to invite the family to come back. Suggested text would be “Look at how much fun you had at VBS!”, “Glad you came, we hope that you and your family will be back for more fun activities!” or include info on upcoming programs.

Sending VBS follow-up frames as a gift shows your appreciation for the child’s enrollment, and at the same time reaches out to the family. Photo keepsakes are often hung on a refrigerator door or propped up on a desk, and serve as a constant reminder of your church and how much fun they had.

Custom photo folders are available for 4″ x 6″ and 5″ x 7″ photographs. We offer both Photoshop and Illustrator templates that you can download and lay out your own art, or send us a JPG or PDF to work with.

If you are looking for a pre-designed folder or a different size, we have those too! Some of our pre-designed folders include both a Western theme and Hawaiian Luau theme. We print custom folders for customers everyday and are experts at what we do! Give us a call to talk about creating cardboard or paper picture frames for your VBS or other church event.

What is a Dual Easel Frame?

Dual easel frames have two separate easels to display both horizontal or vertical photos.

Many picture frames come with an easel attached to the back to prop up the frame for display on a flat level surface, most commonly a desk or table. The easel is what helps the frame stand up on its own.

A frame that is described as having a dual easel simply means that there are two easels attached to the back. These dual, or two easel frames are designed for propping up the framed photograph horizontally for landscape photos or vertically for portraits.

Here is an example of a dual easel frame displayed using the vertical easel:

Vertical Dual Easel
A classic (gold border) dual easel frame using the vertical easel.

Here is the same style of frame using the horizontal easel:

Horizontal Dual Easel Frame
A conventional (black border) dual easel frame using the horizontal easel.

With their two easel options, dual easels make it easy to display either picture orientation.
