Login Help

We welcome anyone to browse all portions of our inventory. However, only authorized resellers with resale tax certificates on file may see prices or place orders.

If you are having trouble logging in and you have used the older version of the website, you may be trying to use your old username and password. The login function for our new site uses your email address instead of your old username. You should be able to login using your email address and the same old password you used before. If that still doesn't work, it is likely that you have a different email address than the one you used when you established your old account. If you can remember an older email address, try that before creating a new account. If that works, be sure to update the email address in your account settings.

If you are already a JFM customer, but have never created an oline account with us, you will need to do that before you can begin shopping. Since we would have already approved your account, you will only need to enter some basicinformation to get registered online. Just check the box to indicate that you are already a JFM customer.

Shipping Information
JFM will determine the most economical method of shipping for you unless you specify otherwise.  All items will be shipped using one of the following methods:
Ground:
FedEx Ground is typically used for smaller orders of frame sizes 24x36 and less (although there are many exceptions for wider or deeper styles).  These packages must be no greater than 165 inches of combined length and girth determined by the outside dimension of the package (not the opening or outside dimension of the picture frame).  You will be charged the FedEx rate for the actual weight of the box or the dimensional weight, whichever is greater. Dimensional charges are first applied when a package exceeds 84 inches of combined length and girth (generally the equivalent of a 16x20 frame). Anything exceeding this size gets charged the larger of the actual weight or dimensional weight.  A package is considered “oversize” when it exceeds 130 inches (this is generally the equivalent of a 24x36 frame).  Packages over 130 inches are charged an “oversize” charge of $20.00 by FedEx. You will only be charged the prevailing ground rate with no additional handling charges.  However, you will also receive a charge for cartons billed at our cost (average $6.00 for ground packages).

Common Carrier:
Packages exceeding ground dimensional requirements will be shipped via Common Carrier with our established carriers (unless you specify an alternative company).  We have large negotiated freight discounts with our carriers, which will be passed on to you.  Generally, multi-box shipments are less expensive when shipped via Common Carrier as are any frames larger than 24x36.  As a general rule any shipment larger than $500.00 is typically more economical to ship Common Carrier.  Carton charges do apply if boxing is involved.

Express Service:  
This method should be used as a last resort and only in a time sensitive situation.   Most frames up to 36x48 can be shipped express.  Charges are significantly more expensive than ground but you will receive the prevailing FedEx rate for this service.

Fuel Surcharge:
Please be prepared for fluctuating shipping charges due to the volatile gasoline situation.  Fuel surcharges can be significant and are applicable to all methods of shipment.

Shipping Damage:
JFM will package your goods in an appropriate manner.  However, occasionally packages are mishandled and result in damaged merchandise.  If you receive a damaged package, please notify us within 48 hours of receipt of merchandise and we will assist you in initiating a claim and advise you regarding the replacement of merchandise.  JFM is not responsible for damages by freight carriers.  Please retain all shipping material for inspection by the carriers.  If you have discarded the packaging materials, there will be no recourse for claim or replacement.  Please inspect your package immediately.  If there is visible damage to the exterior of the carton, please alert your delivery company, if they are present, and have them note the damage on the freight bill.  This will greatly assist us in the claim process.

Return Policy
JFM warrants that the product you receive will closely match what we represent in our catalog and website. However, due to the hand finished nature of the product there is some tolerance for finishes to vary between shipments. Should you wish to return a product for any reason other than manufacturing defect or a JFM order/shipping error, then the following policies apply and procedures must be followed in order to obtain credit:
 
Returns within 30 days of invoice will only be accepted and credited if prior authorization is granted by JFM. If accepted and within 30 days of invoice you will be issued a return authorization number by a JFM customer service associate. Please call our office at 800-462-3449 to obtain a return authorization number.  This number must be marked on the carton in order for us to accept the shipment. Packages without this number will be refused and credit will not be issued. A full credit will be granted only if the product is received in good condition and presentable for restocking. We do not accept goods which have been used or with any visible hardware installed.  Credit for returns will be granted within 7 business days after receiving the returned goods.
 
Goods returned due to manufacturing defect or shipping error by JFM will be credited or replaced at our cost on product and shipping. However, we will need you to cooperate by packaging and returning the defective goods (at our expense and instruction). No merchandise will be accepted after 30 days. See *Shipping Damage* for information regarding damages in transit and procedures to be followed.

Understanding Stock Frame Inventory

inventory.pngWhat do the numbers mean?

  • Numbers in black indicate the quantity currently available.
  • Numbers in red indicate that none are currently available and usually show how many are expected to available on the next shipment and when those are expected to be delivered.
  • If the message says simply "Out od Stock", that means there are currently none on order from the manufacturer.

How Should I Measure For A Custom Frame?

Measure the exact height and width of your image and select from the measurements provided. For matted images, use the outside measurements of the mat as your frame size. We will take the exact size you provide and add the industry standard allowance of 1/8". PLEASE MEASURE CAREFULLY because we will not accept returns due to inaccurate measurements. If you do not want us to add the normal 1/8" allowance, please specify when placing your order.

sizing-detail

Custom-made frames are chopped and joined. Once joined, the corners will be filled and polished for an almost seamless appearance.

Most orders will ship within 7 business days. Orders containing only chopped moulding ship in 1 - 2 business days. Rush service is available if needed.

What Is Chopped Only?

Chop service is where we mitre the moulding to your specified size all you have to do is join the pieces of moulding together to make the frame.  To order chop service just fill in the EXACT SIZE for your chosen moulding type. All chops will have a standard 1/8-inch allowance (1/16 inch on each side) unless we are directed otherwise.

Orders that are chop only will ship next business day.

I already have a website – why should I participate?

This will allow you to join our community of artists and galleries, creating exposure to your art or gallery from our database of customers (galleries, artists, and other trade members browsing our site) who might otherwise not be familiar with you. Additionally it gives you another opportunity for visibility and ranking in search engines, and helps JFM by supporting our customers.

Yes, absolutely. After you have uploaded your information and your listing is approved and posted by JFM (allow a few days), you can click on your listing and that will take you to your specific page with a link to that specific webpage.
