Framing Policy

Our framing services are tried and tested and we have hundreds of satisfied customers. However, the Buyer’s expectations must be realistic even when considering having items professionally framed.  When framing your items the Company will treat your items with the utmost of care, but due to the nature of framing small yet permanent and material changes to the items may occur. This is not considered to be damage and should in no way with the correct storage and placement of your framed item cause any significant devaluation of your items. The following points should be considered before having your items framed and in any case, in no way will the Company accept liability for any of the following;

1. Fading and Bleaching; UV rays will fade and bleach the colour of fabric and photos (or other images) slowly over time. The framing process and construction does not in any way provide protection of the items framed from the sun or other strong light sources. For that reason and to minimise this effect framed items should not be put on display in a location where it will be strong and/or direct sunlight.

2. The Company use small safety pins to secure fabric into the frames. We DO NOT use tacks, staples or pins. Small safety pins are the best and least damaging of all the available options but small pin holes will be made in to the garment to ensure it is securely fastened. Fixings are always discreet and hidden from view. If you ever remove your items from a frame take great care not to pull or tug the fabric to prevent making these holes larger or indeed stretching the fabric. If in doubt request professional help to unmount framed items.

3. The Company may also use a selection of low-adhesive and non-adhesive framing tape, in rare instances (usually when the frame is exposed to high heat or damp) the tape may be difficult to remove from fabric. Patience and careful removal is key should you ever remove your items from the frame. If in doubt request professional help to unmount framed items.
