Review: Melannco Six opening Brushed Silver Aluminum Collage Frame & Adorama printing

Melannco Six Opening Collage Frame

At a yard sale a few weeks back, Aya and I bought a cool looking aluminum photo frame. I cannot remember what we paid for it, maybe $10, but I thought it was a heck of a deal as it looked like it must have costa at least $30 to $40. Then I happened across the exact frame on Amazon and it sells for $14.99! So not a super deal, but at either price the frame is worth the cost.

The full name of the frame is the Melannco Six opening Brushed Silver Aluminum Collage Frame. The sample photos in the frame were all black & whites. We tried a few color prints in the frame at first, but no doubt black & white is the way to go.  I ordered the required 4x6 print sizes from Adorama on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper.  A client had ordered prints from our portrait session on metallic paper for a few of the black & white shots and really liked the results, so I wanted to see how they looked as too.  I am very pleased with how black & white images look on Kodak's metallic paper.  There is definitely a metallic tone to the prints, so believe the name!  

Adorama's website interface is a bit awkward to navigate, but they turn around your order very quickly.  I put the order in late in the evening on Monday, and they were delivered to my door on Wednesday afternoon, with the cheapest shipping option chosen.  Such a quick turnaround time will definitely make me use Adorama again.  

The photo frame comes with a built in stand to be placed on a table top and built in hooks so it can easily be hung on a wall.  The aluminum frame, frames the metallic prints nicely.  Both are recommended.
