Custom Made Picture Frames in Any Colour Under The Sun

You’ve picked colours for the walls, skirting boards and some items of furniture. You have worked hard to create a perfect colour scheme. So why stop when it comes to the pictures on the wall? They are important details in your design scheme. Emphasise the details with custom-made frames, hand finished in your choice of colour.

Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Little Greene, Paint Library, Sanderson, Zoffany, Mylands, Earthborn. Let us know the name of the colour, either from a colour chart or the manufacturer’s website.

An effective framing idea is to match a colour from the artwork. No problem, let us know and we can help identify it and mix a sympathetic paint.

Want to match a Pantone reference or hexadecimal code wing it over!

If you find it difficult to imagine, don’t worry. Using our state of the art software you can create a perfect mock-up of the finished framed picture.


Custom Frame or Print and Frame?

  • Do you have a picture that you want to hang and need the right frame in the right colour?
  • A favourite photo that you can upload for us to print and frame in a beautiful custom coloured frame?

How we Hand Finish the Picture Frames

The frames in our ACUTS (Any Colour Under The Sun) range are all made from FSC Certified Tulip wood. We guarantee that the timber from Pennsylvania in the USA is responsibly sourced. We make the frame in plain unfinished timber. The corner joints use our tested stronger dovetail jointing system. We then sand the frame to a silky smooth finish before it goes on to finishing.

One of our experienced craftspeople will apply your chosen finish in our spray booth. Using spray equipment we apply three coats of Emulsion Paint in the required colour. Each coat dries before sanding. The process establishes a solid, even colour base before we apply two further coats. This time we apply Satin Sheen water-borne Lacquer.

The result is a frame with quality and feel of a very expensive gessoed hand-made frame. The corner joints are seamless. Our technique is more common in the furniture industry than in picture framing. So, these frames are completely affordable.


How to order your custom colour frame

To reiterate: your starting point depends on what you wish to frame.
  • Do you already have a picture that you need a frame for?
  • Or do you have a favourite photo that you want us to print and frame?
