UK VAT at 20% will be charged on all orders. We can not remove VAT from your order if you live on the Channel Islands or outside of the UK.

We may also contact you via email or phone to inform you of the unsuccessful payment and to update your payment details.
An invoice will be sent via email after placing your order. If you do not receive an invoice within 10 minutes of placing your order, contact us immediately to request one. It is important that you check your invoice carefully as once an order for made to measure picture frames has begun being manufactured it can not be changed or canceled for any reason whatsoever.
Please note that we manufacture the majority of our products to order and manufacture times need to be added to your delivery time.
We will dispatch all our made to measure products after the time of manufacture. Current manufacturing times can be seen on our delivery information page under the help and support menu tab. If you have an urgent requirement, you may select priority service when in the basket for a faster service.
Delivery charges for your order will be calculated automatically in the basket. If you select the wrong delivery address you agree for your card to be charged for the correct amount within 14 days of placing your order without notice. We will usually dispatch your order via Interlink Express who require a signature upon delivery. We may also dispatch smaller items with Royal Mail who do not require a signature, however we only dispatch items with Royal Mail that are usually small enough to push through your letter box, such as picture hooks or tape. We may change our couriers at any time without notice.
It is your duty to take delivery. This obligation consists in carrying out all the acts that could reasonably be expected from you in order to enable the couriers to make delivery and in taking over the goods. Further, preparatory measures such as the provisions of plans, are also part of the cooperation required of you. In the event that our couriers attempt a delivery and you are not available to sign for the delivery or the delivery is refused your order will be taken back to the carriers depot. You must arrange with the carriers directly to re-arrange the delivery within 5 working days. Failure to do so will result in the order being sent back to ourselves and a returns charge of £12.00 will be applied to your order. There will also be a further charge of £6.95 to for us to send out the order again. Whilst we do our best to inform you of delivery dates and times, it is your responsibility to ensure someone is available to sign for your order upon delivery. If you have placed an order for a made to measure product, refusing a delivery does not give you the right to a refund.
It is your responsibility for any payments due for local customs and import duties. ( Not applicable to UK residents as we dispatch from the within the UK ).
In the unlikely event that your order does not arrive in the allotted timescale, please advise us via phone or email as soon as possible so we can investigate with our couriers. Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate and we will not be liable for any costs caused by a delay. It is your responsibility to order from us with adequate time to prevent any disappointment resulting from a late delivery.
In the basket you are asked which delivery option you would like. You must choose the correct option for your area. For example, if you are in Northern Ireland, you must choose the Northern Ireland delivery option. If you do not choose the right option and we incur a delivery charge due to this, you agree for us to re-charge your credit or debit card for this amount without notice.
It is your responsibility to ensure items collected are packaged safely and are insured during transit.
If we have arranged for a parcel to be collected and sent to us, you understand we are not liable for the loss or damage to the goods whilst in transit. Whilst our couriers will take great care handling your goods and the loss rate is extremely low, mishaps can happen and we will not be liable. If your items are of value, please let us know and we will quote for insurance of these items whilst in transit. It is your responsibility to ensure a parcel arrives with us in good condition, regardless of who has arranged the couriers collection.
Multiple orders to the same recipient and address may be sent in the same box.
If you have placed multiple orders with us that are due to be dispatched on similar dates, we may consolidate your orders into one parcel. Your invoices will remain the same and still have multiple order numbers, the only difference is that your orders will be sent in the same box.
Some devices may display colours differently. Please contact us if you have any questions relating to exact moulding colours.
Some devices display colour different to others, so if the exact colour is key to your order please phone us to order a sample before ordering your frame as it may not be the exact same colour as displayed on your device. Please also take into consideration the colours of the side of the mouldings which may vary from the colour of the face. Again, please contact us if you have any questions about moulding colours.
In the event of an order being placed for a large frame using a thin moulding, we may upgrade your moulding free of charge to a thicker version of the same frame. This will ensure that your frame is more suited to your artwork dimensions and strong enough to be hung on the wall without flexing. Where a moulding is the same shape and colour we will not contact you to inform you of this upgrade.
If you are unsure about any of the materials or finishes, we strongly recommend you order samples before placing your full order as made to measure items can not be returned or exchanged.

We highly recommend ordering a sample of the frame before purchasing a full frame to ensure the frame is perfect for your requirements. We are not able to accept returns of made to measure frames where you are not happy with the finish of the frame.

As a standard, the sizes displayed and asked for are artwork sizes. Not frame sizes, aperture sizes or anything else.
The sizes displayed and asked for are artwork sizes. If you are ordering a frame with a mount, the mount will overlap your artwork by 4mm on each side. If you are ordering a frame without a mount the frame will be made approx 2mm larger so you artwork fits perfectly. Please remember that your frame will also overlap your mount, or your artwork by a few mm.
If you are unsure about sizing please contact us.
Our phone lines are open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Calls to our 0871 288 7602 phone number cost approximately 13p per minute from a BT land line. Charges will vary depending on your network provider. Mobile network providers will typically charge a lot more.
Frames Protect is a no quibble replacement service.
With the purchase of the Frames Protect service, we offer a no quibble replacement service for all made to measure items. If your items are damaged we may ask you to return them to us at your own expense. If the value of the item is low, we may accept photos of the damage instead of returning them to us. We will send replacement frames even if you damage the frame yourself whilst fitting your artwork.
You must report any damage within 7 days of receiving your frames from us. If you have made a mistake with the sizes of your order, you must send the frame back to us in order for us to send a replacement of a different size. If the new size is larger, there will be a charge for the excess size.
We will not offer a replacement for a frame that has already been replaced. For example, if you purchased a frame and accidentally damaged it during fitting, we will replace the frame for you. If you damage the replacement frame, we will not replace a second time.
You can not purchase Frames Protect after the order has been dispatched. Frames Protect is not insurance, it is simply a no quibble replacement service where Frames.co.uk guarantee's the replacement of damaged or orders that have been placed incorrectly, providing the frame has been returned to us within 7 days of receipt and the frame has not already been replaced.
Frames Protect is not available for frames
