Easy to change frames for photos & art prints. Mat + frame like a pro in seconds. CHANGE prints any time & STORE them in back. Easy gallery walls, too! Bet it takes longer to pick your prints...

Target's shelves looked like this for nearly three months (at Christmas - ouch).

Target's shelves looked like this for nearly three months (at Christmas - ouch).

I'd licensed my changeable framing concept to a local manufacturer and – in late autumn 2008 – the first production run of 5 SECOND® "Slide & Store" frames made it to the shelves of Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Joann, Kohl's, and a few other big box retailers. Yay!

Unfortunately, we discovered that the framing division had been dissolved in a corporate merger, leaving Change of Art (me) without a manufacturer.

I figured customers would want to know what happened, so I added a 'contact' link to the website. Boy, was I surprised to see the backlog of emails – from as far away as Sweden!  People wanted to know what happened – and how they could get more... I just knew there had to be a way to get them back into production. But, this time, I was determined to make them HERE. Not just in the USA, but right here in Chicago.

The last five years have been quite a roller coaster ride (luckily, I like a good roller coaster). So many times, I was ready to throw in the towel... But, then – almost like someone could hear me – I'd get a charming email from someone looking for more changeable frames... These notes are literally what's kept me pushing on when things got tough. Here's a small sampling of the 'fan mail' that kept me from giving up...

 

What an improvement to the old process of framing and hanging pictures!           

      - Molly C., OH 


I’ve never had success in the past hanging pictures. I dreaded the tape measure, pencil, level, and I always end up putting two or three nail holes in before I get it right... For the very first time, I’m actually looking forward to hanging my pictures! I’ll never buy another brand!    

 - A. Freed, IA


I LOVE your picture frames, and even drove an hour away to try and find the ones I need... You have a lifelong fan of your frames in me!...    

- Jana K., TX


A wonderful way to display photos!    

- T. Boie


I am so sad that I can [no longer] buy your frames!...You have literally thought of everything: template for hanging, hanging buttons that work every time consistently, holders for swapped out photos, holders for displayed pictures so you don't need to use tape. 

I love, love, LOVE these frames and cannot wait to see them back on the market. You have taken the agony out of displaying pictures and it is amazing that no one has come up with this idea years ago! Nice work!    

- Liz C. 


These frames are ideal for school photos! We get 2 each school year and being able to change them so quickly & easily is wonderful. I love that I can store each previous photo in back, too.  

- Patti R., IL


I’ve always wanted to do a gallery wall that I can change out, and this has removed my fears, and the time it takes to get everything just right! :D I’ll be sure to let friends know about your great products & site!   

- Carrie C., OR


I love your concept! I don't have much time and have thousands of pictures. This product really suits me... I can't believe we have had to put up with the 'old-fashioned' ones for so long.    

- Y. Gunadi, CA  


I just cannot say enough good things about it. The storage pocket not only allows for an easy exchange of display photos, but it is a great gift option. I am not sure I'll ever be satisfied with the other boring frames again!   

- S. Allen


I really have to say, I do love your frames and if I have time tomorrow, I am going back to the store to get more... I have never seen frames that you don't have to worry if it is hung straight or not. I think you have a GREAT product...   

- Rosella C.


We don’t know how we ever framed, hung or even had pictures before it...  takes every single thing you hate about framing and makes it fun.

I just discovered your frames today and can't believe how fantastic they are! From the time I opened the package to the time the picture was hanging on the wall was less than 5 minutes... Your products are so well thought out it is kind of amazing that frames can have so many features. I can't wait to figure out where else I can hang pictures in my house now that it isn't a hassle. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! 

– C. Hall


What an improvement to the old process of framing and hanging pictures!  

– Molly C., OH 


What a user-friendly, practical frame! About time someone came up with a clever invention like yours! 

– Joyce G., artist, Canada


This has got to be the greatest grandparent gift ever! 

– Jeanine S., CA (seen on photo expert blog) 


I just recently discovered your 5 second slide and store frames. As a highly published design expert, national TV host/TV spokesperson and best selling author---I think this product is a wonderful new idea in home decor...

I LOVE that these frames exist, and I look forward to the possibility of their usefulness being expanded! It is such a great idea! Also, it would be nice if they could just be ordered online directly from your company! OR ... even if they were sold through teacher stores!... Saving time is a BIG deal in today's world!... The idea of these frames being used for fundraisers is also a VERY good one! The kids at my school don't have the money to buy their own photographs, let alone frames; however, most families will jump at this opportunity, I'm sure!!!!...

– Deborah C.


I LOVE your picture frames, and even drove an hour away to try and find the ones I need ... You have a lifelong fan of your frames in me!

... I would like to tell you how much I love your product. You can find your frames all over my home! 

– Kimberly D.


Thank you so very much! I love these frames! I have purchased a few for myself and need to go get a few more to finish my project in my office, but I have also purchased for family and they love them too! 

– Cat M., CA


I LOVE your black frames... I bought over 40 large frames that day. Then I continued to hunt them down at Bed Bath and Beyond (10) and JoAnne Fabrics (12). Just today I purchased 40 - 4x6 black frames online...I am primarily a black and white photographer so my clients and I love that we can easily keep a library of my work and display the photographs of the moment in private galleries. Your online layouts are wonderful too!!!!

Your concept is a fantastic idea.....I hate framing and matting and hanging... you make my job easy....but don't tell anyone.  

– Este S.


Just got frames this weekend and thought it was so easy and great... 

– Chelsea G.


We are an online retailer of limited edition Fine Art and Photography prints... Your frames seem like they could be an excellent fit with our products and our philosophy. I'm interested in talking to someone about either purchasing frames from you for resale or developing a fulfillment strategy for our customers. I am particularly interested in co-branding opportunities. 

–  Jason F.


I love, love, LOVE the concept! In fact, I’ve purchased 15 or 16 of your frames...

–  D.Walker, OH


I just recently discovered [your] frames. I was so amazed how easy it was to create a gallery with these frames... The quality of these frames are some of the best I have used. I hope you will consider going back into production of this wonderful product. 

– Sharon N.


This is an awesome product. I have so many ideas floating around I can hardly wait. 

– Gabby N.


I was so happy - they're great frames... I'm buildiing a picture wall and they are going to work out great! Thanks.  

– Nancy A., Canada


I purchased every size of picture frame available at the Lafayette, IN Kohl's department store... Can I order [more] frames direct from you?

– Michael O.


Very nice product, just hard to find. 

– Ralph W.


I love your product and I'm in the process of assembing a gallery wall for my home. My plan is to use only Slide and Store frames, but I am having trouble finding them in the Columbus, Ohio area. I have tried my local Target, Jo-Ann, and Bed, Bath and Beyond... I am still in need of four frames. I have tried target.com, joann.com, and bedbathandbeyond.com, as well as HSN. Do you have any ideas where I can find the frames I need? I need three 8X10 with mats, and one 5X7 with a mat. I would like the loft syle in black. Thank you so much for your help and for such a wonderful product! 

– A. Freed


I was so happy to find frames that could be changed so easily. My children are young and I love to display all their new photos. With your frames I can easily change them... I can’t believe how much I’ve been talking about these frames. 

– Jaclyn S., PA


... I want to tell you how much I love your product.I am in the process of a huge family picture project and I'm creating a gallery wall. When I'm done, I'll have all the portrait picures of myself and my daughter on the wall and stored in the frames! I love how they can store photos, it is exactly what I needed for the project. I also love how easy it is to frame the pictures. Lastly, the template and ease of hanging is the icing on the cake. That has always scared me!

– Aimee F.


I LOVE your frames, and I will hunt them down wherever I can. I take so many pictures of the kids and it is such a pain to change them out the old way. 

– M. Saba, TX


I think these frames are one of the best inventions I’ve come across in a long time... Boy, do they save a lot of holes and patches in the walls. 

– T. Williams, Canada


The template for setting up wall groupings and then just tapping in the button is inspired. And how convenient to change pictures without taking off a backing, taping the new photo onto the mat...

– D. Prinzo


Hi, I recently purchased a few of your great frames. I own a Photo Gallery in Bar Harbor, Maine I wanted to know if you could sell me your changeable gallery frames. I think they would go over big in my gallery. Of course I can't purchase as many as a Bed Bath & Beyond, but I would be able to order around 20 - 16 X 20 Frames, 20 - 5 X 7 frames, and 20 - 8 X 10 Frames....

– Steve B.


I bought out all the espresso color frames at the local Kohl's stores. The stores listed on your website are only offering black. How can I get some more of the espresso? 

–  Mike


I bought 15 of your frames at TARGET and I like the frames very much... A wonderful way to display photos! 

–  T. Boie


I think the button and mounting idea is great. 

– Bob T., WI


I saw your product at Bed Bath & Beyond and loved it. I would like to create a staircase gallery using one finish, Kensington Walnut. Bed Bath & Beyond had the 10 X 20 matted to fit two 5 X 7s and the 11 X 14 also matted to fit two 5 X 7s. However they are unable to order any other sizes in that finish. I am wanting to purchase six 8 X 10s that are matted to 5 X 7s and four 11 X 14s that are matted to 8 X 10s... 

– K. Griffith


I purchased one of your frames at a Bed, Bath and Beyond store to give to one of our clients as a gift... We like the frame so much our company would like to purchase 100-200 of them. Is it possible that we can purchase them directly from you? The local stores would not have a quantity that would fill our needs...  

– Robin G.


I had a lot of fun designing with these frames to show customers, when they walk in...I can’t wait to do more! Thanks again so much! 

– C. Morris, CA


How long until your products will be available for order again? I love your frames!!! 

– Linda S., SD


I eagerly await your new site and new line of products... 

– L. Clark, PA


I found one of your frames... and bought it for my daughter. Now I want one. Please hurry back. 

– Judy O.


I love your product. according to the website, you said to check back at the end of Feb., but it is March already, and i still don't see that you are up and running yet. soon ? I have an upcoming exhibition (May), and want to buy some frames for it. Can you update me on the availability of your new stock? Thanks.

– Reed O. (photographer)


I really love your products and was wondering when they will be available again. Per your website, they were to available for online purchase late winter. Any ideas on when this will happen? Thanks! 

– Noelle W. 


This is the most revolutionary hanger that I have ever seen and it actually works. Most hangers are a real disappointment and end up damaging the wall. Your company should consider selling the hanger sets on the market. ... the slotted storage behind the frame is really nice. The easy access behind the frame is also nice. Overall, a very nice professional frame that is user friendly. I have been very impressed with the design. 

– Rick S., IL


We hope that more do come and look forward to purchasing more in the future. 

– James W.


I just saw your frames yesterday. what an innovative idea. We could pool our franchisee $s to do a bulk purchase... Maybe a gross each of 5x7, 8x10 and 11x14 Matted Black frames.

– Dennis M., portrait photography company


I have and love many of your frames... :) 

– Tedra N.


I love your product and have given several to friends, in fact I have a whole gallery hallway of your frames! Please let me know when you will be back in business again. 

– Rachelle D.


You know, you should start a fan site on Facebook--then you can quickly update all of your fans on the progress and even post links for ordering.So many people are on Facebook--not just the young crowd (I am 38 & most of my friends are around the same age)--all people with kids who love to show them off in frames! Again, thank you for your amazing design... 

– L. Couchon


Hi. I received several of your frames as wedding gifts. They are awesome! I love them so much. I have been trying to find more but have been unsuccessful. I was wondering how I can purchase more of your frames. Please let me know!!

– Laura Beth G.


I LOVE your frames!... I was happy to read on your website that you are planning on manufacturing them again. I think it would be an awesome idea if you created frames for scrapbook pages...Scrapbooking is huge and it would be nice to be easily display a scrapbook page before placing it in an album. What do you think?  

– Kim R.


I am looking for some easy to use frames such as yours are... Do you have companies in Canada that sell them, or would you be able to ship them to me directly. My company also sells a lot of photos and would be interested in becoming a dealer of your frames to go along with the photos we sell... 

– Tyler M.


I just wanted to tell you that I have been searching everywhere for 5 second frames. I can't wait for them to be back in stores. I have bought black ones in the past but I really want to get some white ones as well as other designs. Please keep up the good work! 

– Muna S., CA


Any info as to when these frames will be available again? I have 2 and absolutely love them. I was hoping to beable to get more to design my staircase like you show on the website. 

– Michele G.
