Photo Frame & Certificate Framing

Don’t use just any photo frame! We can create a photo frame or certificate frame that can enhance your images and provides long term protection.

Have you ever wondered why your old family photos or certificates discolour and fade?

There are two possible causes.

  1. Sunlight and heat will fade photos and certificates. We can’t live in a climate controlled environment but we can frame your photos using UV glazing.
  2. MDF timber backing boards used in cheap ready made frames (and some framers still use it as its cheaper) will discolour photos and certificates. MDF is acidic with a pH of 4. Once the acid has burnt the paper it is irreversible.

We don’t use MDF in our frames.

And we have a range of UV glazing options available.

If you want your treasured family photos to stand the test of time, have them framed professionally.
