Keeping you connected to everything happening....


This is our first blog post for 2014 and it is also to introduce our new website developed for us by LizArc. We hope you find it easy to navigate by either PC, Tablet or Phone.
To re-cap on 2013 . . . . . a very strange year! Just when we were expecting another flat year (as we have all experienced since 2009) we topped all turnover records since Custom Frames was founded in 1992.
Possibly one reason for this is two major projects based in London that we worked upon. One project being for two prototype fast food outlets and the other for a private members club where we constructed bespoke two metre oak frames to surround canvases that we had stretch and fire proof. Another reason is a clear up-turn in the economy which we can see from not only our commercial customer but private ones too.


If you call into our studio reception this year, as ever we source the latest en vogue frame finishes, mounts and styles, with plenty of new collections coming forward in 2014. As well as this, we've introduced an amazing ( don't worry I won't say glazing !) Glass that is almost invisible. A little like my camouflage jacket, I know I left it somewhere . . . . . but just can't find it! Incredible glass and still in a realistic price range. You need to see it to believe it . . . . . .Mmmmmm ! Ask when you're next in .
Other changes are that we are computerising our reception pricing. This means that you will see every element of your framing order pricing, If you do place an order with us, you'll receive a customer confirmation, your order will be sent electronically to the workshop and accounts. On collection you will receive with your finished order an itemised invoice outlining every aspect of your order. If you wish, we will also retain your contact details (this will never be used for third party use) and also all of your order details in case you require the same frame or mounts in the future..
Already in the New Year we are off to a flying start with two contract orders of 850 frames in the first week. Fifty frames for an Inverness hotel and many individual corporate projects with an abundance of private work taken in our showroom..
Each month I will update our Blog and keep you informed of the latest news and up-dates. I'd personally like to thank our customers for their orders and support over the 2013 and hope we can be of service to you and your friends/colleagues throughout 2014.
