The beginning of a new year always comes with a list of goals and plans for change. New year, new me, right? Well, we’re no different here at Design Aglow.

We’ve got some big things happening in our Frame Shop, and we hope you’re as excited as we are about them. All of the following changes will go into effect starting February 1st, 2017.

Don’t worry, we’ll make this as easy and seamless as possible for you.

Here’s the lowdown:

All frame names will be changed.

Say your goodbyes to “Bella”, “Woodworks”, and “Metro.” The frames themselves will remain the same, we will just be switching out the existing frame names to better reflect the character of each frame, help with our white labeling efforts, and share our love of Portland, Oregon with the rest of the world. 

Here are what the new names will be starting Feb. 1st:
Bella → Hawthorne
Woodworks → Laurelhurst
Metro → Sellwood

Grab & Go Collection Updates:

After a few years of evaluating popularity and sales on all of our frame styles and sizes, we have decided to change out two of our Grab & Go Collections for ones with a more fresh and modern layout.  

  • The contents of Collection 2 will be completely replaced with (4) 20x20s with 16x16 mat openings. We will no longer be offering (4) 20x24 frames with 16x20 mat openings, (1) 8x10 frames with 5x7 mat openings, and (1) 5x7 frame with 4x6 mat openings in this collection.

Design Aglow Collection 2

  • Collection 3 will also change to offer (9) 10x10s with 8x8 mat openings, replacing the current offerings. Collection 3 will not include (3) 10x20 frames and (3) 20x20 frames.


Don’t worry - you can still order all of these frames separately in our a-la-carte section if you would still like to sell the previous collections to your clients! Additionally, if you pre-sell any of the new collections, you can also order them as a-la-carte frames for now. They will be available to purchase as complete Grab & Go sets starting Feb. 1st.

If you have previously purchased the Frame Shop Sales Catalog & Lookbook, you will receive an email to download the new version. If you do not receive this email by Friday, January 6th, please contact us with your previous order number so we can send you the newest version. If you do not currently have it, order yours here to make selling frames a breeze!

Price Changes

There will be a slight price increase to most items in our Frame Shop. We don’t like it either, but we will always pass along the best possible pricing to ensure you make money! Please refrain from grabbing your pitchforks and torches.

P.S. - we are actively working on getting better shipping rates for you in the future. Stay tuned, we hope to have more affordable shipping options soon!

Discontinued Sizes & Styles

The following frames will also be discontinued beginning on the 1st of February:

  • All Woodworks frames offered in the color Natural. Once we’re out of the frames, we won’t be bringing them back. We apologize if Natural Woodworks happens to be your favorite frame, but you’ve still got some time to grab them before they’re all gone. 
  • 8x12 and 24x24 frame sizes in all styles (the 24x24 size will still be included in Collection 1, but will no longer be sold a-la-carte).

Flat Rate Shipping

Our US and Canadian customers can now rejoice! We are offering flat rate shipping on our frames. Read all about the new rates here.

And, finally, the last change: our face papers will no longer include the Design Aglow name. Hooray for easier drop shipping!

Thank you for your continued support for Design Aglow, and we hope you enjoy our new and improved Frame Shop as much as we do!

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

Boudoir Week 2017: Meet Jessica Manns
Boudoir Week 2017: Meet Jessica Manns


Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
