    I've been using MCS Format Frames for years, both for my own images and to display my student's pictures in on-campus and community shows. Quite simply, this is the fastest, easiest, cheapest way to show off photographs, up to 16x20, in handsome frames with narrow plastic edges. B&H is a great source for genuine MCS frames (beware of some inferior knock-offs in some retail stores). The glass on MCS frames is nicely tempered and smoothed on the edges, and it snaps in and out with precision, from the front--pop the glass, insert the picture (the black cardboard backing works as a mat if black is to your taste). The quality is so good that, usually, you don't even need to clean the glass! The only limitation is that these frames will only hold a single thickness of mat, but this is more than outweighed by the low price, careful construction, and smart appearance. The two keyhole hangers on the back work well with most hook-type hanging systems.

    Given the price, these were not bad frames. I was looking for an inexpensive solution to frame some shots for an upcoming show and these did nicely. There is not enough space to mount or double mat a print, but a single mat does fit. [...]

    Qick and easy frame

    Comments about MCS Format Frame (16 x 20", Black):

    We use these Format Frames in our high school student photo gallery because they are inexpensive and you can change the art in the frame in a matter of seconds. They dress up our presentation space and provide a finished look for the students' work.

    Comments about MCS Format Frame (16 x 20", Black):

    I recently found myself in the position of needing a set of 16x20" Photo Frames for a last minute group show. As I was searching in and around New York City for a product I could pick up that day, I came across these MCS 16x20" Black front-loading frames. These frames are easy to use, and can fit most forms of matting. I would recommend these frames for durational or home use showings. The thin black frame is slight but professional, and the front loading glass pops back into place with ease. I would recommend trying to avoid moving work already placed inside these MCS frames, as they are front loading, and are at risk of being ejected from the frame if jostled around in a bag or box. For students, novice, & professional alike, these frames are an inexpensive solution to the very expensive task of framing artworks.

    Good Product

    By Big John

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about MCS Format Frame (16 x 20", Black):

    Not a fancy but very effective method for hanging large photographs. B&H did an excellent job of packaging, nothing damaged. A fine record for package containing five 16 X 20 frames. Good value for the money.

        These frames represent an outstanding value and excellent quality. Do not let the low price fool you! Once you assemble your photograph and hand this frame on the wall, you cannot tell the frame is plastic. This material allows for a much lighter weight thus easier to hang as well.

                                    Comments about MCS Format Frame (16 x 20", Black):

                                    These frames are really easy to use and are very attractive. The fact that the front glass simply snaps in and out makes framing a breeze...center your photo, cover with a mat and snap the glass back into place.
                                    about the only downside is that the frame is a bit thin so make certain that the glass is locked in on all sides
