Your Make Frame can be made for you using your own image or you can choose one from our selection of Artist Editions. Simply visit the Make Yours section, upload your image and choose your frame type.
Make Frame offers three styles of frame – Acrylic Wall Prints, Aluminium Wall Prints or Classic style mouldings.
Print and Frame

The image is printed onto the finest papers and then expertly framed with a moulding of your choice.

Acrylic Wall Print

The image is printed and then bonded to a 5mm thick acrylic glass sheet giving it greater luminance, depth and detail. The frame has an invisible back hanging system which creates a ‘floating’ effect on the wall.

Aluminium Wall Print

Using sublimation technology, our Aluminium Wall Prints offer both matt and gloss finishes. Either of which gives stunning clarity to colour or black and white images. Simple and elegant, this option lets your image run right to the edge.

Our mouldings are made from the highest quality real wood and real wood veneers. There is a broad choice of moulding profiles, colours and finishes including 19 Colorplan colours.*

You can choose to either have your image as a ‘full frame’ – taking image right to the edge of the frame or have it mounted using one of our acid free mount boards with a choice of three shades to compliment your image.

*Due to manufacturing techniques colours may vary from Colorplan papers.
Our Mount Boards are available in Black, White or Ivory. We use PH Neutral Acid free papers that have no chemicals that will alter or interfere with your image. Our Mount Boards comply fully to FATG conservation levels.
We print using the latest Silver Halide print technology. Our colour reproduction process produces the subtlest shades of greens, vivid blues and fiery reds. Silver Halide produces brilliant reproduction of bright whites and deep blacks.
We use Fuji Crystal Archive Paper, a light sensitive paper which means your prints are made to last. This comes in a choice of three finishes, High Gloss, Matt and Metallic.
Make Frames come in a range of sizes as either portrait, landscape, square or panoramic.
Make Frames are finished with either UV protected float glass or Perspex.
Make Frames are finished by hand in Hull.

Our turnaround time is seven working days.
