And we procure the highest quality materials to ensure our frames bring colour and life to your pictures.


Our Imperial Picture Frame Range

A 40mm wide, fully wrapped MDF picture frame designed to give a definitive classical look.

Our Imperial range is a very popular seller and a great choice for showcasing memories, family portraits, certificates, vinyl records, jigsaws and many other uses.

Product Description

All our picture frames come with a shatter-proof, Perspex sheet instead of glass

Our Perspex front covers are an excellent alternative for glass, ideal for use within children's rooms, play areas, offices, clubs, restaurants and cafes as the Perspex sheet shatter proof and much safer to use.


The Perspex sheet comes with a protective film on both sides to protect from scratches and damage whilst in transit and once peeled off, the Perspex is effectively indistinguishable from glass.

How to Pick The Correct Picture Frame Size

All our frames are listed by the size of the picture which fits into them so an A4 picture would fit into our A4 size frames exactly.


The overall size of the frame and the viewing window will be different from the size of the picture fitting into the frame due to the recess in the width of our frames which is used to hold the picture, Perspex and backboard in place without falling out of the front of the frame.


The details of the recess can be found above.
