FAQ

What do I get with my chop service order?

In the package you will find four expertly cut and mitred pieces of your chosen moulding.
If you selected our Easy Joining Solution (router service), in addition to the moulding, we provide glue, cleaning cloth and the 4 inserts for joining your order.

Is there a size limit?

Yes, for delivery 1800mm by 1800mm or less
For store collection 2700mm by 2700mm or less

Why do you add a 2mm tolerance?

2mm tolerance is a standard concept in the framing industry where the framer will cut your measurements 2mm bigger than requested. This allows for your contents going into the frame to fit perfectly.

What is a moulding?

Moulding is a length of wood, aluminium or plastic designed to be mitre-cut to form picture frames. A huge array of designs is available, in varying widths, depths and finishes like; painted, embossed, laminated, veneered or gilded designs, many are sold unfinished so that framers can apply their own finishes and flourishes by hand

What is glass size?

Glass size is the total width and height of the frame contents, including the subject/art, any border created through mounts and the 5mm overlap required for the moulding to prevent the contents falling out.

How long does the service take?

The chop & router service generally takes 1-2 working days, with an additional day for shipping if necessary.
If a moulding is unavailable, this can delay the process by 2-3 days.
A staff member will notify you of any delays at the earliest chance.
