Advantages of a bespoke frame for professional photography

As well as enhancing aesthetic appeal to your professional photography, a high-quality, bespoke frame can also protect your work, shielding it from dust, scratches and sunlight. We use acid-free mount boards to ensure your photography stays undamaged over time and UV-protected glass to ensure your piece is safe from harmful sunlight and indoor lighting.

We offer a wide range of styles and finishes, so you can design your frame to complement your photography perfectly, enhancing its worth. Whether you’re planning to keep or sell your prints, we craft each frame to meet your exact specifications so you can display your work at its best.

Our friendly team can help you select the right frame for your work. We can offer advice on the best framing options for your photography, and you can even order picture frame samples before you purchase.

 

Presenting your Photography

When framing photography, it’s crucial to protect your work from moisture and airborne pollutants. Picture mounts can help to prevent this damage. A mounted print is also easier to handle during framing, reducing the risk of harm to the print before it’s even gone into the frame.

Mounts are one of our bestselling photography presentation products—they enhance the visual appeal of your work, making it stand out in any room. We have various mount colours and styles to choose from, which you can order with or without a frame. Our single mounts are designed to protect and display your photography within a picture frame behind glass. Our double mounts, which involves stacking two mounts on top of each other, are perfect for highlighting specific colours within the print, drawing attention to the highlighted hues and adding depth to the presentation.

Our range of mounts ensures you’ll find the ideal match for your photography, giving your work the quality it deserves.

Alongside our mounts are our multi-aperture picture frames, which we’ve designed so you can frame numerous shots within one frame. With the flexibility of our frame builder, you can present your photographs in rows or columns, with as many or as few image slots as you like.

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.

Fantastic service and quality! Ordered a bespoke oak frame. Not only it fits the picture perfectly, the frame smells of wood that I love.

Framing for Photographers FAQs

How important is it to consider the frame as part of the artwork?

Very important! The frame is not just a finishing touch; it’s an integral part of the presentation. Work with your framer to understand the communicative possibilities of the frame’s physical form. It should complement and enhance the artwork, not just encase it.

How much time should I allow for framing?

Don’t rush the framing process. Each framer varies, but typically, we take around 7-10 business days to ensure everything is done correctly.

Why should I choose a multi-aperture mount for my photography?

Multi-aperture mounts are perfect for photographers looking to tell a story with their images. They allow you to present a collection of photos in a cohesive and visually appealing way, making them excellent for thematic displays, such as wedding photos, travel snapshots or a series of portraits.

Current standard turnaround time is 7 - 10 days.
