    Customer comments about Profile 8x8 Frame with Mat:

    This is a great looking frame. However it took a while to figure out how to put the picture in.
    Also the edges are very sharp and because of the material (metal), I cannot hang this on a wall where is reachable by my kids.

        I love everything that I buy from room and board. I really do not like the continuous email reminds to write a review. Beware, if you buy from room and board, you will soon receive many request to review the product... It would be nice to just to be able to buy the product and not receive the emails. Please remove me from your list.

            This was the perfect frame to showcase the art of my colleague, Joey Knox. The frame is just the right simplicity to let the art shine. Note the yellow hand; the piece is called "Consumer".

            after reading the instructions carefully, when trying to take apart to install our photo the glass broke. The small screws were in so tight that we had to press down to try and turn them causing the glass to break. We now have to take it to a frame shop and pay for a new piece of glass, which is not cheap. After already paying alot for the frame.

              Most of frames we use are from Room&Board - they are beautiful and I believe a great bargain. I display the square along with a standard 5x7 in Gunmetal and added a Walnut one over the fireplace.

              I've slowly replaced all the other frames I've had with Room&Board ones - the standard profile frames along with the square ones throughout our house.

              I get lots of compliments on my 'decorating'!

                I have several of these frames and bought another one. The website said it was back ordered for 6 weeks and so I ordered it and moved on. It arrived in 3 days. Not sure what the problem with inventory is there.
                The color match the older frames perfectly, no problem with "dye lots."
                The frame is flawless and perfectly clean. No need to clean the glass or start picking up stray pieces of dust. I blew it off with a spray can of compressed air and mounted the picture. Easy to hang. Would buy more if needed.

                  This frame is quality construction and I will use it for years to come! I had one with a defective screw, but Board & Room sent me out a new one so that I would have it by the weekend since we were having a party at our house! I have been working on a gallery wall in my head for a year and it is now complete. It turned out beautiful and I love these frames! Don't be intimidated by how they assemble; if I can do it, anyone can!!!

                  Customer comments about Profile 8x8 Frame with Mat:

                  I gave this frame 4 stars instead of 5 because of the effort required to get the backing off, the picture in and the backing back on. It's unnecessarily complicated and makes changing the picture a pain, rather than a fast in and out. It requires a screwdriver, and the directions are not clear, but I figured it out. Still, it's a frame, not a home improvement project, and should be simpler.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Service and delivery were, as always, wonderful----efficient and friendly. R & B is very consistent in service; thank you!

                    while stylish, the glass in these frames is about the cheapest, thinnest, (non tempered on top of that!) piece of glass you'll ever encounter. It is in fact DANGEROUS. I bought three of these frames in various sizes and though i was incredibly careful, all three pieces of glass broke either when attempting to open the frame, or when re-assembling them with the artwork. Very sharp jagged edges, and tons of small little shards resulted.... disappointing as well as a little unnerving. I spent the money to go to a local glass shop and put a quality piece of glass in them, but you should plan to spend an additional $30-60 per frame to put decent glass in them.
