Why should I buy frames from your website?

We guarantee our frames 100%. All our frames are made in-house to order, made from the very best materials, sourced from New Zealand suppliers. Frames are made with care, precision, clean cuts, clean glass, excellent packaging and everything you need to finish the frame off and hang it on the wall.

What is Conservation Framing?

Conservation framing is the use of materials that protect valuable items. If choosing conservation we substitute three materials over the standard framing, they are:
Conservation Clear Glass screening out UV light, and an archival foamboard backing.
If using a mat in your frame, archival Alphamat is used.

Labels on the back of your frame indicate the "Framed to Conservation Standard"
Conservation Approved

What is Standard Framing?

With Standard framing, materials used are still of a very high quality, however are not "archival". The Clear glass does not screen out UV light, you get an acid free foamboard backing rather than archival. If you choose a frame with a mat, an acid free Novacore matboard is used.
You can learn more about the specifications of these boards by clicking the links.

I need frames urgently, like next day! can you do them faster?

When I order a frame with a mat border (e.g.) for my A4 item, is the frame A4 size? or bigger?

When you order any of our frames with mat border the frame is always bigger and it is the mat that goes around the size that you want, with the frame then around the mat.
