Snap Frames - how they work
All four sides of snap frames are spring loaded to hinge open with a snap action, allowing easy access to your poster behind a poster cover sheet. The frames snap open snap shut to make poster change a breeze. We offer several snap poster frame profiles plus secure and lockable versions.
Style Advice: Narrow profiles suit smaller sizes such as A4 snap frames, whereas large posters benefit visually from wider aluminium profiles.
Snap front poster frames supplied fast from our large stock in UK
The standard finish for our snap front poster frames is silver anodised aluminium - sometimes described as a brushed aluminium snap frame. This silver frame finish looks attractive in almost any situation. We also stock black snap frames in a range of sizes and polished gold snap frames in A4 size and A3 size, and other coloured snap frames.
Are snap frames and clip frames the same?
People wanting to buy snap frames often ask for clip frames or snap clip frames. The surround of the frame snaps open thanks to the built in spring clips. These are different to the clips on a more basic clip frame. Those clips are used to hold a clear front onto a hardboard back panel. So strictly a snap frame is not the same as a clip frame - frames with fiddly clips to secure a glass front are not generally used in a commercial environment. Safety and convenience are important, so we only sell snap type frames with a hinge-open metal surround allowing the poster to be changed without taking down the frame.
Opti Frames - a clever patented design of snap frame - offer extra safety and a choice of fixing methods. The Opti Snap Frame can be screwed to a wall, hung like a picture frame or fixed with double-sided tape. In smaller sizes these Snap Frames can be supplied with a strut back to allow use on a table-top or reception desk. Discover Opti Frames for best value!
Snap Frames are ideal poster frames for shops, offices...in fact anywhere!
We offer several styles of ready-made poster sized frames. The snap frame sign holder is perfect in a retail store for POS display where quick message changes are essential. Equally these snap-open snap-shut frames are valuable for any information sign or advertising display. Snap frames are used in pubs, hospitals, schools, in office receptions and for outdoor shopping centre advertising. Snap frames are widely used in toilets for advertising or for cleaning records.
Outdoor snap frames
Standard snap frames are used outdoors although the regular snapframe is not totally waterproof. However Green Magic has now introduced a new weather-proof poster frame: it has a foam gasket to make it into a waterproof snap frame. Exterior snap frames are proving very popular.
Movie poster frames in stylish aluminium
One popular use of snap frames is for displaying movie posters. We have recently extended our range of movie poster frames.
Custom snap frames can be made to order for special size posters as well as snap frames in different colours.
Tamper resistant snap frames and lockable snap frames
The quick change facility of snapframes can be a disavantage: it is easy for someone to remove a print or tamper with a poster. In more vulnerable situations customers choose lockable snap frames or secure snap frames to offer security and tamper resistance. We offer tamper-proof snap frames in popular sizes.
Snap frame poster holders and metal snapshut frames are popular and versatile. Snap frames are available ex stock for next day delivery on request and we supply high volume snap frame users as well as a single A4 snap frame. Snapframes are great for promotional use, information signs or displaying health and safety notices. Green Magic is also a trade supplier of snap frames. The applications for snap open frames are many and varied.
