Kenro Springs into Action in 2016

New photo frames & albums line up showcased by the leading UK distributor at the 2016 Spring Fair, February 7-11th, NEC, Birmingham all meaning that Kenro is ‘back with a vengeance’ for 2016


Kenro is very proud to announce that it will be exhibiting its exciting new product line up of photo albums and frames on stand 4C45 in Hall 4 of the NEC Birmingham, for its regular appearance at the Spring Fair trade show, which for 2016 takes place from February 7th to 11th.

All the latest products boast immense potential for self-purchases, as well as being bought and given as gifts, due to their attractive designs and affordable price points.

For those who can't make it to the event, Kenro also has a new 16-page Spring/Summer Collection 2016 brochure, available on request - and of course you'll also be able to pick up a copy at the show itself. There will also be further chances to catch up with the distributor at BVE London 23rd-25th February, and The Photography Show in March.

Exciting new additions in the frame
Showcased at Spring Fair for the first time are classy new additions to the Senator photo frame series, a smart-looking product range first introduced in 2015.

As well as a cool, contemporary new colour in 'Steel Grey' joining the existing black, white and matt silver options, there are recently added multi aperture frame formats, plus increasingly trendy square frames to appeal to the Instagram crowd.

''Senator frames have become one of our best selling lines since being introduced in 2015,'' reveals Kenro MD Paul Kench. ''Square formats and multi aperture frame and mounts are very popular, and have been for a while, so it makes perfect sense for the Senator range to expand in these directions. We're back with a vengeance for 2016''

Also new for 2016 is the Bergamo range of frames, manufactured in wood and boasting a smooth matt finish in either Brilliant White or Black for a contemporary look, thanks to its clean lines and narrow profile. Again, this eye-catching series of frames offers multi aperture mounts to appeal to the modern photo frame market.

Three of a kind to put you in the picture
But that's not all from Kenro to start the year. Its third, fourth and fifth new frame products are to be found in the Rocco, Torino and City ranges respectively. All three series have been enticingly 're-booted' for 2016, with new designs and new colours that are very much on trend.

''The designs for Rocco and Torino have been completely re-modelled to reflect ever-evolving fashions,'' enthuses Paul Kench. The existing City range, which was previously just available as an A4 option useful for displaying diplomas and certificates, now has additional sizes offered in 6x4-inch, 7x5-inch, 8x6-inch and 8x10-inch as well.''

For Instagram users and anyone looking to showcase their square format prints, Kenro has further introduced a 4x4-inch or 10x10cm option to its Frisco frame range, which now offers five different square formats. These round top frames with a slim 10x16mm moulding can be displayed on a table top or hung on the wall, as desired.

Looking to add a touch of 'glass' perhaps For even more contemporary ideas when it comes to framing options, then look no further than Kenro's new Glass Block series. This very modern new line joins its classic Clifton series of smooth black matt plastic frames and the Fusion Modern family of pearlised finish frames.

Paul Kench adds ''Glass Block is another range that has been re-booted for 2016; prior to this year we had a smaller range of sizes than we do now. We've updated it and expanded it with a refreshed range of options.''

The glass block series is unusual in that the frames are manufactured in bevel edge 25mm deep glass, with the photo slipping into the centre of the frame between two glass sheets. Another advantage is that this series is very suitable for engraving and personalisation - should the frames be given as a gift. In fact, Kenro has a number of products in its range that are suitable for personalisation - talk to the team for further details and recommendations.

The Clifton and Fusion Modern series have been similarly overhauled with brand new designs for both, with the Clifton available in matt black and the Fusion Modern in a choice of pearlised white or pink with a cushioned profile.

Time for albums to turn over a new leaf
Like its frames, Kenro's comprehensive album ranges are also best sellers at any time of the year. Again, there are new additions to talk about in 2016.

Offering plenty of gifting possibilities is the attractive Floral book bound slip-in album series, newly launched for 2016. There's a choice of feminine soft pink, turquoise or mauve designs here, and each album holds 200 6x4-inch photos.

Aiming to meet a steady and strong demand for travel themed albums meanwhile is the aptly named and eye catching new Holiday series, featuring shell designs on the covers that evoke memorable times spent in far-flung exotic climes.

''The options here are perfect for anyone who has returned from a memorable break and wants to share their pictures in a modern, good quality album,'' suggests Kenro's Paul Kench. ''Often, as much as people buy albums to commemorate their own holidays, they also make for a nice Christmas or birthday gift for friends or family. The price points fit comfortably within what someone would plan to spend on a gift.''

Cool urbanites - or anyone returning from a mini break - are alternatively directed to the gorgeously illustrated and designed London Highlights series of photo albums, complete with Big Ben motif adorning the cover and London landmarks featuring on the inner pages. Again, there is plenty of gifting potential for such a series, which boasts the ability to display 200 6x4-inch photos.

The final new product for the start of 2016 is the Baby Zoo album series. As the name of the range indicates, these are being suggested as perfect keepsakes for new mums and their new arrivals. In fact, the albums are beautifully presented in a keepsake box, which continues the cute cover design over on to the box lid itself. To record the days and months of a newborn's development and growth, a memo writing area is helpfully presented next to each picture, while up to 120 6x4-inch photos can be showcased within each album.

It all adds up to Kenro beginning 2016 with a bang, And don't forget you can see all of the above for yourself and chat with the team at the Spring Fair at Birmingham's NEC, this February 7th to 11th.
