Pre-made, ready-made, stock frames
With clever design, a pre-made frame from Frames NOW can be made to look like a custom frame.
Ready-made Timber Frames
Timber frames are generally more popular for these art types:
- Photographs (professional and casual)
- Tapestries / Embroideries
- Jigsaw puzzles
- Original art – paintings, drawings, sketches, charcoal and pastel
- Limited Edition prints
Frames NOW has a wide range of pre-made stock frames, covering sizes from a small 6×4″ photo print, to a huge 100 x 70cm print. See our most popular stock sizes here on our website.
Our regular ready-made frame colours include, but are not limited to, black frames, white frames, mocha frames (dark timber), walnut frames (light timber,) and silver frames in a modern finish. Our traditional-styles come in gold frames, silver frames, and walnut frames (light timber).
Ready-made Aluminium frames
Aluminium frames are generally more popular for these art types:
- Certificates and documents
- Modern digital / graphic
Aluminium frames present a cost-effective framing choice for a short-term framing project. Frames NOW’s picture framers wouldn’t normally recommend them for anything valuable, though. Although they have the benefit of being very lightweight and visually minimal, they cannot be sealed to resist moisture.
Because they are lightweight, they are often popular framing solutions for businesses looking to create point of sale presentations. Find more information on that here on our website.
Using Matboards to Finish an Artwork
If it should happen that none of the standard sizes in stock suit your artwork, pre-made frames can be adapted to suit with a matboard. Matboards (often called mats, borders, surrounds, inserts) come in hundreds of colours. Good matboard choices will make a frame look more “custom,” even if it uses a pre-made stock frame.
Most Frames NOW stores can cut mats while-you-wait, making pre-made frames best for those last-minute or urgent framing jobs.
