What Is A Custom Frame?

So, what exactly is a custom frame? Find out more below.

A custom frame is specifically designed for you and the item being framed. Not only does the frame protect your artwork, it can also enhance the image itself. By choosing a particular finish, you can complement the colours, subject and style of the work of art within. Here, we’ve outlined the elements that go into making a custom frame to help you choose the perfect finish.

Frame mouldings

Choosing the right style and size moulding will show off the art, especially when you consider your own interior décor as well. We only use solid wood picture frames using premium mouldings sourced from renowned suppliers in the UK and Europe.

Picture Mounts

Mounts create a gap between the artwork and the glazing which helps prevent damage from condensation or high-gloss prints sticking to the glazing. We only use acid-free mount-board, which eliminates the risk of burn – staining of the print due to contaminants leeching from the board. Our mounts are also white-core, which means the cut bevel-edge nearest the print remains crisp and white; lesser quality boards quickly discolour.


The glazing plays a vital role in protecting your artwork from scratches, dirt and dust. At Nicely Framed we offer a UV-protection option that filters out 99% of damaging UV rays, and a special non-glare option which effectively cuts down any reflections from environmental lighting while also being UV protective.

Backing board

To ensure your artwork retains its looks over time, we use a rigid 3mm backing board which adds rigidity to the frame and prevents twisting.

Quality production

Each frame is cut, joined and assembled by hand in our UK factory by one of our expert framers. Each frame comes with hanging fittings, ready to display as soon as you open the box.

We supply picture frames to individuals and large businesses worldwide and are renowned for our quality and expertise.
