Advantages of displaying your artwork in a bespoke frame

Alongside adding aesthetic appeal to your artwork, a custom bespoke frame offers numerous benefits—crafted to fit your work’s exact style and dimensions, custom picture frames provide remarkable protection.

As environmental factors can damage your artwork over time, we craft our frames with archival-quality materials, including acid-free mats and UV-blocking glazing to help protect your prints from fading, discolouration and deterioration caused by light, humidity and dust exposure. UV-blocking glazing significantly reduces the amount of harmful UV light that reaches your artwork, preserving its details and colour; as our frames are crafted to fit comfortably around your artwork, they seal out dust and moisture.

Our custom frames for artists can be tailored to complement your piece’s style, colour and texture, drawing attention to your work and elevating its overall presentation. Whether you prefer a minimalist frame for a contemporary piece or an ornate frame for a classical portrait, our frames add a touch of charm and personalisation to your display.

 

Materials Matter

The right materials make a big difference when framing your artwork. We use only the best sustainable materials and solid woods when creating our frames and have something to suit every artist’s needs. In each frame we handcraft, you’ll find:

  • Natural materials: We use solid woods from sustainable sources, ensuring your frames are visually appealing and eco-friendly.
  • Glued, pinned and sealed corners: We carefully glue, seal and sand every frame corner for a seamless, smooth finish to ensure your frame is sturdy and looks great from every angle.
  • Handmade to exact size: We craft each frame by hand to match your precise specifications, offering a personal touch that mass-produced frames can’t match.
  • Archival and acid-free: We use 100% acid-free materials and FSC-certified wood to ensure your artwork remains protected over time, preserving your art’s value for years to come.

This company's products and customer service was excellent. I had a bespoke frame made for a large vintage print and it fitted perfectly. The printing of the title on the mount was an added bonus!

Absolutely superb service and advice, from my first contact with Roger he was helpful, polite and a great understanding of my thoughts and needs. As a freelance illustrator I always use independents to supply / work with. Picture Frames Direct are excellent.
