Product Description

ALUMA’s FUTURA Modern metal Picture Frames are among the highest quality metal & acrylic picture frames on the market today.

You will see why the US Military, Boeing, Paramount Pictures and many other top companies use ALUMA for their important projects.

We guarantee you will love all of our modern products and services. The Futura modern metal picture frame is Hand-Made in the US using premium grade acrylic, brushed metal backing and high quality metal hardware. Our design team is always available to help you decide on the right version and finish for your modern image display project.

Quick-Mount vs. Stand-Off Mounting Options:

Both the Quick-Mount and Stand-Off versions use the same modern cap hardware. They look the same from the front and its only when you view them from the side that you see the difference.

The Quick-Mount version uses a clear acrylic bracket which floats the frame about a 1/2″ off the wall. This bracket is hidden behind the graphic being displayed therefore a clean minimalist look is achieved. Less damage to walls and ease of hanging makes the Vetro Quick-Mount version a top choice of commercial clients nationwide.

The Stand-Off version is for those on a tighter budget or who desire the Stand-Off hardware look. If you intend to display a transparent item or plan to frame various size pieces in a single modern frame, the Stand-Off version is the best solution. In these type of situations you might see the bracket behind your graphic using the quick-mount version.

Beautifully Finished Edges:

All Futura modern metal picture frames come standard with Satin Finished edges and may be upgraded to our Platinum polished Edge. Satin finished edges have a smooth frosted modern appearance (No tool marks). Our platinum polish upgrade gives the edges a crystal clear appearance.

In House Printing & Mounting Services :

Order your prints during your frame purchase so that everything arrives ready for easy installation. Aluma offers free mounting of prints with all online frame and print orders. Our team of graphic designers are ready to assist you with your file uploads.

Epson Ultrachrome HDR Inks
Opening a new era in color performance. Epson is once again raising the standard for pigment ink performance with Ultrachrome HDR (High Dynamic Range).

Featuring two extra colors – green and orange – Epson Ultrachrome HDR provides a much wider tonal range. This means higher color accuracy, greater subtlety and smoother gradations. More vivid, natural and dazzling.

The addition of orange and green inks takes inkjet color performance to an entirely new level. Grass and foliage will be much more vivid and natural, while orange tones like sunsets will be more dazzling. Photographers will be delighted to see that the orange ink also lessens the graininess in skin tones. Epson Ultrachrome HDR will give you quality unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Vetro Quick-Mount Instructions

Can I order a custom Vetro acrylic picture frame?

Ye, just go to our online custom configurator and design your custom Vetro frame right online. If you experience any problems with the configurator or have questions about sizing please feel free to give us a call.

Should I order a Quick-Mount or a Traditional Stand-Off Vetro frame?

Both Versions of our Vetro frame use the same high quality architectural stand-off hardware and look the same from the front view, they are just attached to the wall differently.

The Vetro Quick-Mount version has the look of a standoff system but allows for easier mounting and media changes due to the unique hanging bracket that allows for the frame to be quickly mounted and removed from the wall.

The Traditional Stand-Off version is slightly harder to hang and is not quite as easy to change images but is a great option when the items you need to frame are transparent or of a unique size which would make hiding the rear mounting bracket of the Quick-Mount version impossible or difficult.

Do you offer Volume Discounts?

Yes, please see our discount tab at the top of product page. For XL commercial projects please contact our sales department for a custom quote with reduced pricing and discounted shipping.

What comes included with my Vetro acrylic picture frame?

Every frame comes with all the necessary architectural mounting hardware to hang your Vetro frame.

Can I mount and hang The Vetro frame myself?

Yes, Every frame comes with easy to understand directions and can be hung with just a few simple tools. You can download our framing and hanging directions directly from the Vetro product page.

What thickness of acrylic do you use in the Vetro art frame?

We use 1/4” high quality acrylic for both the front and back pieces of the Vetro acrylic picture frame. If you have a large project which is on a tighter budget contact our sales department for economy 1/8” acrylic options.

*Please note that large frames with 1/8” acrylic tend to flex which can cause spacing between the front and back pieces of acrylic. For this reason we only use 1/4″ acrylic on large frames.

Is the Vetro art frame archival?

Museum grade materials and custom acrylic mats are available upon request. The custom cut and polished transparent mats may be inserted in between the two solid layers of acrylic to keep the top layer of acrylic from touching your artwork. However, due to the frame less design all acrylic sandwich style frames will allow small amount of dust to enter the framing system over time. Standard 1/4″ acrylic is inherently 80-90% UV blocking for 98% UV block please contact our sales department for a custom quote. $$$$$

What about the quality and durability?

All of our Vetro art frames are hand-made here in the USA and have exceptionally finished edges. Acrylic is great in that it does not break and is lighter than glass, however it does scratch and must be handled with care. Never use glass cleaner on any acrylic product. We recommend using a specialty acrylic cleaner and polish like Brillianize. (May be purchased in the hardware section of our online store)

Custom Made Vetro frames are made to order and cannot be returned. Standard sizes may be returned at customers expense if protective masking has not been removed. Shipping charges will not be refunded and a 20% restocking fee will be deducted from your refund.
