Picture framing, is available in either ready made off the shelf, or custom made (bespoke).
The picture frames can be supplied empty for customers to put their images in themselves which is a popular option for artists and photograghers who are often quite competent at picture framing. The Frames NOW picture framers are always on hand to help people wanting to do their own picture framing.
Common options with picture framing is glass, backings and matting (often referred to as borders). There is various matting options, however at Frames NOW as a minimum standard all the mat boards we use for picture framing are acid free.
Picture Framing is a great way to preserve photographs, original art work, posters, football memorabilia, war medals, tapestries.
Essentially picture framing fits into 2 broad categories. Decorative picture framing which is often achieved using ready made frames and conservation picture framing, which is normally custom picture framing. Whilst it is possible to frame to conservation framing standards using ready made frames, it is more likely that conservation framing is achieved through the custom picture framing process.
