How Our Expert Craftsmanship Turns School Photos into Keepsakes

Ah, the annual school photo. It’s a tradition, isn’t it? One minute they’re in their first year of primary school with a toothless grin, and before you know it, they’re donning a graduation gown. These photos are more than just images; they’re timestamps, capturing your child at a specific moment in their journey of growing up. But what do you do with these precious snapshots? Tuck them away in a drawer? Stick them on the fridge? How about giving them the royal treatment they deserve with a custom-made frame from Picture Frames Direct?

Why custom frames?

You might wonder, “Why go for a custom frame when there are plenty of ready-made frames out there?” Well, it’s like buying a tailored suit versus picking one off the rack. Sure, both will do the job, but one will do it with style, fitting every contour perfectly. At Picture Frames Direct, we believe your child’s milestones deserve nothing less than perfection.

In an ever-evolving industry, experience is a priceless asset. With a legacy spanning three decades, we know what we’re doing. We have spent time perfecting the art of turning pieces of wood and glass into windows for your memories. 

From our family-owned workshops in Heywood and Middleton, we handcraft all of our frames and mounts ourselves. Our expertise guarantees that your child’s photos are treated with the care and precision they deserve.

Competitive Pricing Without Compromise

We believe that preserving these priceless memories should be affordable. Everyone should be able to frame their child’s school moments, whatever stage they are at in their academic journey. We only use the finest materials, but, due to the volume of frames we manufacture, we are able to take advantage of our bulk buying power to hold the overall cost of our materials down. This means that you get the best of both worlds: a frame that will last at a price you can afford. This makes us the go-to choice for framing your child’s school photos. It is highly likely that we will beat the prices of other competitors, whilst delivering on your ideal picture frame.

Streamlined Simplicity

Ordering your custom picture frame has never been easier. We have made the ordering process a breeze, through our simple Online Picture Frame Builder tool, where you can enter your customisation options and preview it before placing the order. We have endless options for different styles, colours and sizes to suit your child’s photo needs. Whether you want it big or small, square or circular, natural or vibrant, we have you covered. We have spent years ensuring that the design process for our customers is as simple as it possibly can be, and our team are on hand to help if you want any guidance on how to use our online tool. Once ordered, we will work tirelessly to craft your frame, ensuring it is delivered to your door ready for your child’s smile to be placed on display.

That’s why we offer a wide array of flexible frame options to cater to every style and preference, with over 800 moulding samples and over 200 mount colour options. From materials to finishes, sizes to personalization, our frame options are designed to be as diverse as your memories.

Our flexibility ensures that your child’s school photo frame is a true reflection of your vision, making the memories even more special.
