There are a multitude of reasons that people choose custom framing over a cheaper, ready made frame, however we believe there are 3 major reasons why people decide to entrust a custom picture framer:
1) Protection of the artwork or item you want to frame
Whether you have a cherished photo, print or artwork or a piece of valuable memorabilia, getting these professionally framed ensures the item will be protected for many generations to come.
Portfolio Picture Framers use only acid free materials including mat boards, foam core backing, tapes and glues to ensure your item does not deteriorate or yellow over time. Anything that comes in contact with your item must be acid free or it will suffer permanent and irreversible yellowing in the future. We also carry museum grade matboards if you require the highest quality for the most valuable of items.
We carry all grades of glass from standard glass through to Museum grade UV glass that will protect your item from the damaging affects of UV light. We also carry non-reflective glass that cuts down glare and reflections allowing you to enjoy your artwork without any distortions.
2) You get exactly what you want
When you get exactly what you want you feel a sense of pleasure an achievement. So when you receive your custom framed photo, football jumper or family heirloom back from a custom picture framer, you will get that same feeling – which will keep returning every time you look at your frame on the wall.
When you choose to custom frame an item you can choose absolutely everything from whether or not you would like a mat board (aka mount), the colour and material of the matboard, the size of the matboard, whether you want one, two or even three matboards combined, a pattern or shape cut into the matboard rather than a standard rectangle, the colour, style, width, depth of the frame, the overall size of the frame, what type of glass you would like (or none at all) and what type of hanger you would like on the back. You certainly do not get even a quarter of these options when selecting a ready made frame and you wouldn’t buy a t-shirt that didn’t quite fit and the same rings true for picture frames.
If you are not familiar with custom framing you maybe unaware as to the multitude of design options that await you. In addition, as all frames are made to order, we can create a frame that will perfectly suit the items that are framed within and the item that you have framed will be the centre of attention rather than the ill fitted ready made frame.
3) Personalised Service
Choosing to frame through a custom picture framer gives you opportunity to receive advice and insight from a framing expert. Whether or not you have an idea of what you a looking for, a professional framer can guide you on colours, styles and current trends which will ultimately complement the item that you want to frame and it will look right at home, no matter where you choose to hang it.
At Portfolio Picture Framers, we offer a free colour consultation which will help guide you to choosing the perfect frame and framing options for your item and it’s completely obligation free. If you decide not to proceed or you wish to take some time to consider what we have discussed, we can keep all your choices on file and revisit it on a later date.
