Picture framing is not an exact science and pricing can vary significantly from piece to piece. We have included some guide prices for some of our services in the sections below.
With a large range of mouldings to chose from the cost of framing a picture can vary widely. The cost of glass, mount cutting, backs and assembly of the frame does not vary quite as much.
For a 16 x 12 inch print or photograph without a mount our prices would range from around £30 to £70 depending on the moulding chosen. Adding a custom mount would be around £8 for a single mount and £15 for a double mount.
Framing a loose canvas involves two processes:
1. Stretching the canvas onto a custom stretcher frame. Expect to pay around £22-30 for a 16 x 12 inch canvas depending on the depth of the frame.
2. Framing the stretched canvas. This can be done using a standard frame moulding or a 'shadow gap' profile. For a 16 x 12 inch frame prices would range from around £30 to £60.
Acceptance of a canvas for stretching is subject to approval upon inspection.
We use 2mm thick float glass for almost all our framing jobs and keep a range of pre-cut standard sizes in stock from 6 x 4 inches to 20 x 16 inches. Our standard sizes are:
6 x 4 inch, 7 x 5 inch, 8 x 6 inch,10 x 8 inch, A4 (297x210mm), 14 x 11 inch, 16 x 12 inch and 20 x 16 inch.
We can cut replacement glass up to 48 x 36 inches but would recommend a maximum size of 24 x 20 inches due to fragility if you plan to take the glass away with you. Expect to pay £3 per square foot (minimum £2)
If you have broken the glass in a frame and would like us to replace it for you we are happy to help. Pricing would vary depending upon the size and condition of the frame and whether any remedial works need to be carried out before re-assembly.
We keep a range of standard size mounts in stock in Arctic White to suit pictures from 5 x 3.5 inches to 16 x 12 inches.
We can cut custom single or double mounts up to an overall size of 40 x 30 inches.
For a 16 x 12 inch print or photograph a custom mount would be around £8 for a single mount and £15 for a double mount.
Standard stock colours are: White, Arctic White, Black, Gold and Silver
