What if I do not want to choose one of the standard sizes of frame?

Make Frame does offer a bespoke service, please call us to discuss this.

Print and Frame

Frames are hung with a very simple string and screw method.

Acrylic Wall Prints

A piece of acrylic is attached to the wall for the Acrylic print to slide onto, giving these prints a floating effect.

Aluminium Wall Prints

The frame has a baton attached which you fix to the wall, creating a simple sleek look.

Good workflow/colour management procedures are how we achieve control over colour and tone of digital images, consistently reproducing predictable results. Ideally your files should be submitted from a calibrated monitor, thus enabling print to monitor matching.

Make Frame recommends you use a minimum image dpi of 300 in RGB mode with an embedded sRGB colour space (sRGB has the closest colour gamut to photographic paper). Please note that we do not colour correct or alter your files in any way.

As a result we will print and manufacture the files you design and send us. Some colour variation may occur if your monitor is not calibrated to Make Frame settings. You can download our suggested Make Frame monitor settings and printer profiles below.
