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.

I keep a collage of my son's school pictures on my wall, starting with a preschool picture, all the way up to present, which is 10th grade. They look cool on the wall. You really notice the photograph and not the frame. I like these very much.

I needed to order 24 frames for a special project. The 24 frames were about $90 as expected.
However, the shipping was $495! That's not a typo! Almost five hundred dollars for shipping! For that amount of money, I can buy an airline ticket and pick them up in person. The first reviewer was right. I realize these frames can be delicate so require extra care, but $7 shipping per $4 frame. No thanks...

The product itself is fine. I ordered 10 of these to display some B&W photos on a wall. Over half were damaged, having scratches on the front of the plastic frame. They were poorly packaged, just stuck in the box together with no packaging in between.

Using clear box frames brings out the true art of a print, note card or photo - no distractions.

Inexpensive, does the job well. Promptly delivered. But delivery charges are more than the cost of the frames!

The items purchased were fine, and delivered promptly. Just what I was looking for. But the shipping charges were more than the items!! A real stunner, so make sure you look closely before ordering.

I ordered two 18x24 frames for a design client I am doing two matching custom wall sculptures I am framing. Both were damaged. I had to deliver something so I used the one that was damaged on the corner and created a lining to hide it. The other however had a humongous scuff mark (undetectable through the plastic wrapper). They rushed me a third and I just opened it to finish the project and to use the box to return the other... Well that one has TWO big scratches. Again... This is how it came out of the sealed plastic wrapping. Now I have to return two and I'm worried another replacement will also be damaged as 3 out of 3 have been so far. I am not happy. This has put me in a terrible position with delivering the commission to my Client.

As an amateur photographer and stravel writer, I also print out selected 5x7" and 8x10" photos taken on my travels on my HP Photosmart printer, and mount them on walls around the house. I've found these clear plastic 8x10" box frames are the perfect, easy -- and inexpensive solution to being able to rapidly and inexpensively mount and display a rotating selection of photos, without spending a great deal of money for good frames and matting, or having them in cheap looking variety store frames. Like most frames, these can easily be hung either horizontally or vertically, and I can put two or three additional photos behind the one on display. Every few months I rotate the photos on display by simply pulling off the cardboard back, taking the one on display out, moving it to the back of the stack, and displaying the next photo in line. It's quick and simple. The only problem I have encountered with these is that they can be easily scratched, and until I realized this, I had badly scratched several of them. They also show fingerprints, but those can be easily removed. I've replaced the scratched frames, and am now much more careful with the plastic frames, for example,not stacking them on top of each other.
