Digital photo frames can be bought online and in store. Small digital frames are cheap and are perfect for photos and a no-fuss approach.
Most bespoke framers have odd-shaped ready frames laying around or will be only too happy to make one up for you out of off-cuts.
Don’t be shy! Ask your framer to cut your digital photo frames. You will be able to choose from a wider range of mouldings and the frame will be finished to a higher standard than any off-the-shelf frame.
Framers are always looking for ways to get rid of old stock and will be happy to make a quick frame while you wait. Cheap custom frames like a small digital photo frame can be cut in under 5 min. Flexibility sits at the heart of the framer’s psyche, or at least it should. So ask your framer whether they have any off-cuts that might get the price down.
Many time during my years working as a professional framer I would suggest this option as a way of reducing costs if I felt that cost was a determining factor in whether the customer would pull out or go ahead with a job.
Picture framers depend on having a good rapport with their local community. They know that a happy customer is a repeat customer, and that bad reputation travels fast.
