Fit & Frame Your Picture

Find out how to fit and frame your pictures or artwork below.

Your new custom picture frame has just been delivered and here you will find a quick guide to help you install your favourite print or artwork into your frame, ready to be displayed!

Installing Your Picture


Place your frame face down on a flat, clean surface


Using a flat-head screwdriver, carefully lift up the flexi-points


Gently remove the backing board and mount and glazing if ordered to leave your frame empty


Ordered a mount? Place your picture face down, apply a strip of tape along the top edge of your picture, turn your picture over and carefully position your mount over the picture. Make sure that your picture is positioned correctly in the mount before applying pressure. Turn your picture and mount back over again, applying firm pressure to the tape, securing the mount and picture together.


Prepare your glazing – All of our glazing comes with double sided protective film which must be removed. If the glazing requires a light cleaning, use a soft cotton cloth to wipe away any dust or particles.


Final Assembly – Once your glazing has been cleaned, place it carefully back inside the frame, followed by your picture (and mount). Now place the backing board inside the frame and push the flexi-points down to secure the frame contents in place. Turn your frame over to make sure that you are happy with the alignment.


Attach the hanging fixings – Depending on your overall frame size we use a variety of suitable hanging fixings. Smaller picture frames come with saw-tooth hangers attached to the backing board. Larger picture frames will come with D-rings, screws and chord. You will need to screw the two d-rings into the back of the frame, approximately 1/3 of the way down from the top of the frame and tie the chord between them. Cut away any excess chord you may have and double check that it is secured correctly. (If the hanging fixings are attached incorrectly, Nicely Framed will not be liable for any damage occurred)
