Ant-Man looks weirdly saturated in the pic. Looks much better in person.

Is there enough space in the frames to swap out the films for a normal foam core and UV plexi?

Hello Jayper, just seeing this now. Our Wide Border comes being able to accommodate up to .250" depth. Our Standard Thin border frames come being able to handle .125" and can be made to handle up to .500" All you have to do is let me know what the thickness is of the foam core you are putting in and I will take care of it.

Thank you!

Jumped on the band wagon with 3 white frames, here is what the miss and I set up today. I wanted to run with a theme and I love me some Ortiz.

On a side, noticed that on one of the frames, one of the sides sometimes gets stuck halfway when trying to open. However, if you mess with it for a little bit, it will open all the way. Has anyone else had this problem?

Anyways, love the end result. Have two more black ones to put up in another room for another day.

Looks really nice! I responded to your email. You are going to have to force it as one of the spring clips must be out of place. Please DON'T try and readjust the spring clip with your fingers as they are very SHARP. Use needle nose plyers. Or better yet just leave it alone and I will send out another side for you!

Sorry you are having trouble!!!

Haha, we tried to center the frames with the couch, but for some reason the space to the left of The Goonies has a bit of a curve to the wall (the whole house is shifting, we have some spots where it just looks slanted), and the spotlight frame was looking tilted when level and not resting flat against the wall.

We tried but we liked how the current placement of the frames does not bring a lot of focus on being centered with the couch, plus we plan to place more prints in that area to bring more balance to the wall.

I have a few of questions that I'm hoping someone can answer for me regrading these frames.

Firstly, one thing I want to frame is a jigsaw puzzle, and its thickness is approximately 3/32 of an inch. Will these frames accommodate such a thickness?

Secondly, in regards to posters, I am worried about the edges of the frame clamping down to hold everything in place. I have a similar type of frame that I purchased from Amazon (NOT a Spotlight Display), and what I've noticed is that if I take the print and overlay out and close the edge down, the part that would normally make contact with the overlay closes down on an area that is deeper than what the edges of the print/overlay would rest on. The result is a slight indentation around the edges of the print, where the edges of the frame are clamping down - particularly noticeable in the corners. See picture below for an illustration of what I'm talking about - the print/overlay would rest on the aluminum part, while the frame clamps down on the white part.

The following picture is NOT of a Spotlight Display frame:

So my question regarding that is, with no overlays or prints in these Spotlight Display frames, do the edges come down on the aluminum that the edges of the overlay rests on, or does it also try to clamp down on an area deeper than that aluminum edge?

What concerns me is this: I have seen the video on the website that shows the storage of multiple prints in a single frame, and when the marks on the overlay are discussed it is mentioned that there are no marks on the print. However, a screen capture from the video at 1:44 seems to show a mark in the corner of the print when the light hits it just right, and that seems to line up with the mark on the overlay:

Lastly, these white frames... are they a gloss white, matte white or something in between?

Thanks!
