      Customer comments about Steel Frame 8x10 Off-Center:

      These frames are beautiful and really complete our living room décor. The weld marks do show around the insert, but that's part of the industrial look. While those don't bother me, the discoloration (some were white on the frames we received)did. R&B gave us the same fabulous customer service as always, and exchanged them for us with no problem. Love these frames!

      Customer comments about Steel Frame 8x10 Centered:

      I purchased six of these natural steel frames. Five of them had marks (small dots) randomly around the picture area. I was told by the sales assciates that this is a normal part of the natural steel manufacturing process. That may be true, but it looks like poor quality craftmanship. I am in the process of swapping them out for new, cleaner frames without dots. However, this is a hit or miss process as it depends on the shipment and is taking a while to get a clean looking frame. I do not encourage purchasing the natural steel.

              I bought 9 of these frames and included a mixture of 6 center and 3 off-center steel natural frames. We printed some of our own photography in sepia and the result looks incredible. The frames are very thin making a striking composition. They were easy to hang given the keyhole is right at the top so it wasn't a measuring nightmare. I did have to find some angled hanging nails at the big box store that didn't show above the frames, given the keyhole is right at the edge. We have had lots of compliments on our wall of photos and love them.

                I thought the art piece I was framing was going to look great in this frame and it turned out even better than I had hoped. It looks absolutely incredible. It is now two art pieces in one; the frame and the artwork within. Great quality, beautiful to look at. Wonderful product. I will be purchasing more.

                    These are great frames. We bought 5 almost five years ago and moved...the wall was so big, we needed more. The only complaint was that the two new ones are a darker brown than the older ones, but they blend well and that is to be expected with such a long time between purchases. The newer models sold now have been improved with an easier way to hang them.

                    The product looks great now that it up. We bought 12 like they were displayed at the store. The frames are heavy and I was challenged to figure out how to hang them without the hook showing above the top of the frame. There were no directions. I finally found these Gorilla hooks that worked good.

                      Customer comments about Room & Board Steel Frame 8x10 Off-Center:

                      This frame was purchased as a gift after my wife had seen them in the showroom. A few weeks after she expressed her interest, we saw some Romare Bearden collages, to which she responded positively. Instantly I knew the two together would make a great gift, not to mention an exceptional display in the great room. Although it is very easy to hang, it is heavy, so you will want to find a stud or use an anchor. That's about the only downside. The glass could use some sort of buffer or cushion against the metal, too. The display, however, is clean and very striking without overwhelming the art within.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      I called my local store and the person with whom I spoke checked to see if there was one on-site. Not only was it held aside for me, I got a discount on account of it being a floor model, though there was nothing wrong with the piece. An associate wrapped it for me and the entire trip took ten minutes. Can't beat that!

                          To touch up the natural steel finish, we recommend using either a graphite pen or a flat black, outdoor grill paint and lightly misting the surface.

                          A:

                          The natural steel has a clear lacquer finish so you can use a damp cloth and if needed, a squirt of window cleaner on the cloth to remove the fingerprints. Be sure to wipe the surface to remove any dampness.

                          A:

                          The natural steel frames have no color added to them and is truly the material itself. Natural Steel material could be comparable to graphite in color. However each one will have its own unique characteristics like wood grain.

                          On the Steel frames located on the backside there is a single notch centered on three sides, Frame can be hung horizontally or vertically. Use any type of attachment that works best for the wall surface the frame is being used on.
