Care of Frames & Plaques

Our frames and plaques are not designed to be indestructible!

They should be handled with care AT ALL TIMES

Hang or display with hooks / stands designed for the appropriate weight of the item.

Dust with a soft, clean microfibre cloth.

Do not rub or use detergent or sprays.

Do not place in direct sunlight.


Postage of Frames.

NOTE: All frames delivered by post will be supplied with framing acrylic in place of glass. This product is a lightweight , shatter resistant product that is virtually impossible to tell apart from glass in a frame. Coated with tough UV protectors, this high quality acrylic sheet in addition to other properties such as weather resistance and break resistance, makes it a very popular choice for artwork.

If you do require glass you will need to specifically request upon ordering and we will not guarantee against breakage in post.
