Delivery Costs

All prices are Ex works so the cheapest way to get your frames is from the factory yourself.

We try to give the best service when it comes to delivery but unfortunately it comes at a cost and we subsidise this significantly.

For small orders of up to 5 Frames delivery is by trackable courier at a cost of £10+VAT (Inc packaging)

For Larger orders of multiple frames cost is £10+VAT(inc packaging) per package not exceeding 15kg.

For Van delivery distance on google maps between our factory and delivery address is charged at £7.50 per 15 minutes. If you are on multiple drop off route the cost will be divided and reduced considerably.

Cost of framing

Once installed FrameIT will control all your pricing needs. It simply it works out the base cost for us to manufacture a frame then you can add whatever margin you require.Our pricing is transparent you can see exactly what the material cost, labour cost and profit we charge.

For example this antique poster Size 742 x 1112 mm, Double conservation mount, Moulding @4.95 P/M, 2mm Low Reflective UV Specialist glass, backing board and fixings break down as follow;

Cost of materials £93.61 Cost of Labour £32.50 Manufacturers profit @25% £31.53 Making a total of £157.64.

At the galleries marks this up by 100% therefore the cost to the customer is £315.27 +VaT, (With plain glass the customer cost reduces to £195.94+VAT)

Invoicing of completed jobs

We invoice for each frame we manufacture after it has been delivered. Invoices are saved over a period of 7 days and bulk sent midnight every Thursday. Payment is due strictly 7 days after this date giving you the opportunity to finish the frame and get it back to the customer. FrameIT also has the ability to administer deposits which means you should always have the cash in hand to cover the bills!

Setup costs

We can get involved with as much of the setup as you require. Right from the very beginning we will give you a fully csoted breakdown of everything nothing is hidden. You can decide what you want to do yourself and what you want us to do.
