Selecting From Custom And Ready Made Picture Framing

Artwork and photos look okay tacked to a bulletin board, taped on a wall, or displayed on the refrigerator. But, there is a way to make them look so much better without spending a lot of money. Ready made and custom picture framing elevates the quality of art, photographs, or posters and is not difficult for shoppers to find.

A ready made frame is, as implied, already made and it comes in different sizes and styles to accommodate the item being displayed. When opting for ready made picture framing, shoppers will need to determine the required size, color, type, and material used to make the product. They will find the choices in all these categories to be numerous. A smart shopper will determine which of these criteria is most important and begin the decision-making there.

Photo frames are available in styles suitable for general use or to commemorate special occasions. This type of ready made picture framing makes the perfect gift. Holiday pictures can be taken of the children, placed in a photo frame, and mailed or delivered to the doting grandparents. If a new baby is on the way or nuptials or in the future, a design can be found that is perfect for the event.

Shoppers can also find picture framing suitable for specific types of documents such as certificates or those that display multiple photos. Clip frames are the product of choice for anyone who is on an extremely tight budget. Standard A4 cheap frames are available for bulk purchase, making them useful as wedding favors. Teachers can purchase these, insert a class photo, and provide them to each student at year-end.

Picture framing companies play an active role in custom framing by helping to bring the shopper’s vision to reality. Any size or style is available and shoppers can select from millions of different mount and frame combinations. Expert staff members provide recommendations as needed but the ultimate decision rests on the customer.

In the custom options, shoppers will find collections along with wood and metal frames in styles ranging from simple to elegant. The mounts are cut to the exact dimensions provided by the customer, providing the individual with more creative liberties. Whether opting for ready made or custom picture framing, there is a size, design, and material to match the preferences of each shopper.

Johnny Lew Sports Introduces Fund Raising Made Easy Program – Earn Money for Your Organization / Charity

Tonawanda, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2009

John Lewandowski, Air Force Reservist and owner of Johnny Lew Sports, announced today their new Fund Raising Made Easy Program. The program offers approved organizations to earn 15% of products purchased on Johnny Lew Sports. It’s simple and easy to sign up. Once approved organizations are assigned a unique four digit code that their members can use at checkout. Once a purchase is made and the code is used the monies are automatically set aside for the charitable or group organization.

“It’s a way for us to give back”, said Lewandowski. He explained the idea came about while attending a church service. “For a long time I thought how could I give something to my customers, ideas such as throwing tail gate parties or give prizes away would always seem to exclude someone”, added the website owner. So he developed a simple program where everyone, even people who have not yet purchased from Johnny Lew Sports, can participate. The Fund Raising Program Made Easy just made sense.

It’s simple and easy. If you need to raise money for an organization or know someone who does, visit Fund Raising Made Easy for details. The overall program is this; Fill out an application and a W-9 form and once approved your organization is given a unique four digit code. Once your members place orders on Johnny Lew Sports and use the unique code at checkout (found on the shipping/billing page and can be accessed from a drop down list) 15% of their product purchase will be set aside for your group. Communicate the program to all your members and once they start buying your organization benefits. We can even help you get the word out by creating flyers, sending direct mail and email your members (upon your permission of course).

You will be provided a detailed summary of activity each month to see how much has been earned by your group. You choose when you want the funds sent to you. Checks are issued on the last day of every calendar month. Your members get great sports merchandise and your group gets 15%. It really can add up quickly, if you have 250 members and half of them place one order (avg. $ 55) you’d have over $ 1,000.

If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us. You could be set up in matter of days and earning for your group.

Others who have participated in this program have used fund raising events to pass out flyers and post cards (which we can provide). People communicate it in their monthly bulletins and on bulletin boards. You’d be amazed how fast your group can make money.

It’s better than knocking on doors selling candy and cookies. People come to our site and you earn money.

Bank of America Receives a Third of Negative Comments Made Online about the US Banking Sector According To Latest Findings from DigitalMR

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB UK) 28 February 2012

Social media research specialist DigitalMR releases latest findings on what customers are saying about US financial service companies online.

DigitalMR analysed thousands of customer comments regarding banks for the month of November 2011. Interestingly a large proportion of customer views monitored were positive (62%), compared with 38% being negative about their customer experiences.

DigitalMR’s report (powered by SocialNuggets) analyses thousands of customer comments posted via a range of relevant finance related websites and open access social media platforms. It measures not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also sentiment – whether these posts are positive or negative.

Results are based on comments posted by consumers on the major US banks: CitiBank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, US Bank, American Express, HSBC, Capital One, Barclays, JP Morgan Chase Manhattan and US Bancorp.

The banking service brands with the highest share of overall mentions were: Amex (27%), Bank of America (22%), Citibank (17%), and Wells Fargo (15%).

There was, however, a large difference between the positive and negative mentions that these banks generated. Amex achieves the highest share of positive comments (36%) but only 12% of negative ones. Conversely, Bank of America attracted the largest share of negative comments (33%) which is more than twice its share of positive ones (16%).

Taking the difference between positive and negative posts into consideration, the winner for November is Amex with a Net Sentiment Score (NSS) of 66%, followed by US Bank with 64%.

Third placed is Capital One with an NSS of 40%. A strong NSS score is an indication of high overall satisfaction levels among customers. Only one bank had a negative NSS – Bank of America with a NSS of minus 11%.

Ryan Rutan, President of DigitalMR USA commented: “nearly two-thirds of all customer feedback measured has been positive which is good news for US banks and Amex in particular. However Bank of America continues to receive a higher proportion of bad reviews and this month is the only bank with a negative NSS of minus 11”

Features and Services

DigitalMR measured thousands of customer posts across November regarding the services and features that banks offer. Services attracting a much higher proportion of positive mentions to negative ones included: Credit Cards (39% positive vs 15% negative). Services attracting a higher proportion of negative comments included: Mortgages (10% positive vs 23% negative).

In their words – sample customer comments


“Amex, you guys are excellent. Your transactions reconcile faster than any other banks I deal with, your gold card knows no limits (pardon the pun), & your customer service is top notch. Never an issue disputing a charge on the off chance I have one and each time I have to use customer service, the staff is empowered to take a corrective step if necessary rather than asking a manager ever 30 seconds”                                

US Bank:

“I love the app – huge improvement over the last app – but I’d like to have the option to make payments to my U.S. Bank Visa Credit Card, U.S. Bank CreditLine, and U.S. Bank Home Mortgage all from the mobile app. Perhaps consider this for your next revision? Otherwise the app is great. :)”        

Bank of America:

“New BofA Online Bank web site is a NIGHTMARE”

First time I tried a transfer, no detail showed but the balance show a decrease, I called customer support and they couldn’t find the transaction and suggested I do it again. Well you guessed, the next day 2 identical transactions showed and it ran my balance below zero. So now I had to call customer service and get them to reverse the transfer and tomorrow I get to call again to reverse the overdraft fee”.

Wells Fargo

“I just closed a 6 figure account with wells fargo today and the bank officer did not care!! Since wells fargo took over wachovia, the service has been horrendous. The bank officer in the syosset, ny branch gave me incorrect information so when i went to florida to specifically take care of business for my mother’s account; i could not complete this business.
