How long does it take to have something framed?
We run on a turn-around time of 10 business days from the time of placing the order and paying the deposit. We can work to a meet your deadlines if we are advised at the time of placing the order. Additionally, if our turn-around times are delayed we will advise you at the time of placing the order.
Can you tell me a price over the phone or by email?
We always do our best to provide you with a ball-park figure for your framing needs over the phone or by email, when you are able to provide an estimate of the size of the piece as well as an idea of what style of frame you like. However, the only way we can provide you with an exact quote is when you visit us in store and design the piece up. This ensures that we provide you with an accurate price based on the measurements of the piece and the framing chosen.
Do you have ready-made frames?
As we are a custom framer everything we make is built for a customer’s unique piece. However, we do now offer a small selection of frames in a variety of sizes and frame styles, which we can fit the art into for you or you can just buy the frame and fit the piece yourself.
Can you fit my photo in my own frame?
Yes. We can fit your photo into your own frame.
Can you cut and fit a mat in my own frame?
Yes. You can select a mat from our wide range and we can cut it to your required size and fit into your own frame.
