Bad design for cardboard insert.
on August 8, 2009
The box frames by MCS consist of a clear acrylic five sided box with a white cardboard box inserted from the back.
For the smaller size frames than the 16" by 20" frame the design is quite elegant. A photograph may be simply mounted on the front of the cardboard box which is then inserted into acrylic box, for a clean looking presentation. The cardboard box, with holes in the back for hanging, is designed so that any edges are hidden from the front and sides.
The 16" X 20" frame, however has a different design for the box. There is a junction of cardboard going across the front of the box, and complex cardboard junctions on each end of the box. Rather than having a clean "instant" (like the smaller frames) presentation a user must make a number of aesthetic repairs to the cardboard box before mounting his photograph.
It is hard to understand why MCS chose the very awkward design for the cardboard box insert.
