FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What size frame should I order?

If you have doubts in what size frame you should order, we invite you to use our frame customizer. Click on the moulding you like, press Customise frame and then you just need to enter the size of your artwork you require framing or message us.

Please note :

When order, introduce the size of your artwork. The size of the frame quoted on the website will be the size of the glass.

The mount size equals the aperture size. I.E.: equals the size of your artwork.

When ordering a mount, the outside size of the mount will be the size of the glass and back.

The overall size of the frame will be the size of the glass plus the width of your chosen frame.

How much does a mount overlap my artwork?

We provide different range of colours mounts. Each mount is cut on-site using very best computerised equipment to ensure accuracy. To make sure the image is hold downperfectly we will cut the mounts slightly smaller than the size you enter in the customization. A mount will overlap your artwork by 4mm on each side.

What is polcore?

POLCORE frames are the most budget friendly picture frame moulding you can find.

Polcore is recycled polystyrene – an alternative picture moulding material.

Recycled polystyrene picture frame mouldings have a skin of HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) – known as ‘virgin’ – on the outside of the profile which provides a smooth surface on which to finish.

The core of the moulding is made up of about 70% recycled polystyrene and 30% virgin polystyrene.

Recycled polystyrene is made up of waste products from mainly two sources:

  • The electronics industry

  • Plastic packaging – mainly from the food industry

It contains NO detectable formaldehyde or carcinogenic substances and is free from lead (as can be proved by lead testing). The manufacturing process is clean.

  • We do not use spray paints.

  • We do use decorative transfer films.

  • We do recycle all our waste extruded product.

Therefore the material that constitutes recycled polystyrene mouldings broadly conserves the use of the earth's natural raw materials by using those that have been recycled.

WOOD

Our ranges of wood products are from companies that purchase their timber from sustainable sources and reforestation projects. Other ecological considerations include the use of water based paints and varnishes.

My styrene glass looks scratched what should I do?

If you order a frame with styrene glass, this comes with a protective cover on both sides of it. The cover may give the appearance of scratches. Once it is peeled off, the scratches will disappear and the styrene will be perfectly clear.
