All photographs on this website of products have been taken and colour balanced by professional photographers. We can't however compensate for variations in colour between monitors due to settings and model.
Our 'Frame Design Studio' is an application which offers a mock-up of a frame and/or mount to provide you with as close to a true picture as we can achieve with modern technology. However, although the sections of wood used to build these mock-ups have been professionally photographed, the mock-ups themselves are 'doctored' to provide a more natural representation of the frame under 'normal' conditions.
In short, if exact colour match is very important to you, then you should not rely on the images shown on the web site. If you contact us, we may be able to send a sample, depending on order size.
The frame or frames you have ordered include ultra-clear acrylic safety glazing or glass, 2.5mm MDF backing board and appropriate frame hanging fixings. We can vary this configuration upon request. Once received, you'll need to put your artwork inside the frame and attach the hanging fixings which will take you a few minutes only.
Each picture frame moulding (the material from which we make the frame) has what's called a "rebate depth". This simply means the inside dimension from the front (where the glazing sits) to the back. Rebate depths vary from 5mm to 30mm. The exact dimension can be found by looking at the web page for that one moulding and reading the description.
If you wish to frame something which is thicker than paper, then you need to make sure that the rebate depth is at least 7mm bigger AND you need to tell us in the "Further Instructions" section of the checkout page. If you want one or more mounts in the frame also, then add 1.5mm x the number of mounts to the 7mm.
For example, say you had something to frame that is 6mm thick. Just add 6mm + 7mm to find the rebate depth you need - in this case 13mm or more. If you also wanted a mount, then it would be 6mm + 1.5mm + 7mm = 14.5mm or more.
The easiest way to deep rebated frames is by using our Fast Frame Finder and choosing the appropriate options.
The web site is designed to allow frames up to 1220 x 915mm, and mounts up to 1200 x 815mm. If you have a requirement for an item larger than this we may be able to assist. Please contact us via email stating your requirements (including the MLDA reference number of the preferred frame style from the web site) and we can let you have a price.
However, we only have the ability to box items sizes upto 1445mm x 1245mm so anything larger will need to be collected from us.
Frame moulding is supplied in varying rebate depths (inside depth, front to back). We have an FAQ with a quick calculation for determining the appropriate depth here.
If you wish to frame something that is very deep, say a golf ball or a hat, then please contact us to establish feasibility and cost.
All frames are designed to hang, and fixings are supplied for this purpose. However, if you want a stand for your frame, you may choose one in the Design Studio under Section 6: Options. Alternatively you can browse and purchase a stand from the accessories section here.
We do offer a sample service if your order is likely to exceed £75. Please contact us to request your sample(s).
Yes. We can manufacture frames from just about any moulding available. Why not contact us with your requirements .
Your frames are pre-assembled in our factory. With the wooden frames you only need to put the string on once your artwork is in place. For aluminium frames the process is slightly different, your frames are still assembled with us but once you receive them you will need to unscrew one end and slide the fixings and string on the back. With the frame, you will receive a simple guide to help you with this process.
