The Questions you might be asking
And some answers, hopefully!
Custom frame or ready made frame?
With custom frames you can choose a standard size or enter your own exact dimensions. You can add mounts, choose colours, frame types and glazing. We will hand make this frame to you requirements. Ideal when you need to frame a particular sized piece and want complete freedom to design.
Ready Made frames are an off-the-shelf product available in a range of popular preset sizes and finishes. Ideal if you have a regular sized piece and can prove a good option when on a budget.
How long will it take?
Custom frames we hand make to your exact size and specifications, it’s not something that we can lift off a shelf and put on a van (we wish!). But we will start work on your frame as soon as we receive your order. We aim to have your frame made, checked and boxed within three to five working days. If you have a particular deadline then contact us, we can normally oblige.
We hold a healthy stock of ready made frames and aim to dispatch these within 24 hours.
What’s included with my frame?
All our custom frames are made from responsibly-sourced wood and all our mounts are conservation-grade, so the core won’t discolour over time. We will not use low-quality ‘budget’ mount board! Your frame comes complete with MDF backboard and, where specified, 2mm glass or 2mm acrylic. Full hanging cord, D-rings and bumper pads are also supplied for you to affix to the frame, along with a fitting guide.
Ready made frames have easy to fit backs and all hanging fittings are integral.
Different from our bespoke service
Both custom frames and ready made frames are supplied for you to fit your piece and finish yourself – almost a DIY kit. The quality of frame is the same as we’re known for as long time bespoke framers, but our web shop is for customers who don’t require our full personal bespoke service and fitting, or aren’t local to us.
So can I order online & you fit my art?
Sorry, that’s not a service we offer. Our web orders are for self fitting (and priced accordingly).
