At Just Frames of Leicester we specialise in providing a personal and individual service to our customers. This enables us to respond to their needs directly. It is not unusual for the final specification of an assignment to be the outcome of a full discussion of all the options in order to achieve the very best outcome.

Obviously, it is much easier to follow this procedure if the client is able to visit our showroom. Where this is the case we strongly advise a phone call for an appointment. Where this is impractical we recommend contacting us with a view to discussing ‘on line’ how best we can meet your requirements. With the marvels of modern communications we believe ‘distance’ is not the handicap it once was.

Size and subject matter present no problem. We thrive on challenges and have undertaken projects from post-card sized photos to an Egyptian Print on Papyrus 6’ x 3’.

These items tend to require smaller frames than say, paintings and oils and therefore lend themselves more readily to ‘on line’ purchasing. If this is the requirement we strongly recommend asking us to quote. (See section ‘Quotation’ below)

Generally, items in this category are from middle to large size. Options on framework and mount- boards become more numerous and decision- making more complex. But again, given the ease with which samples and briefings can be communicated these days, not impossible. It will still be worthwhile getting a quote.

Artwork in this category requires ‘stretching’ before framing. With Oils there will be no back, mount- board or glass – very straightforward. Some clients prefer their needlework to be without mount- board or glass but most appreciate the extra enhancement they give the work as well as the protection they provide

For this category, generally a ‘3D’ frame is required. Its depth depends on the depth of the subject. When requesting a quotation it is important to provide the full information. At least one mount- board will be required and the framework itself will probably need a deeper rebate. Sports Shirts are often framed without resorting to the ‘3 D’ technique.

We now offer two types of Service to customers :

Is for you, if you are able to visit our showroom – with all the benefits of a personal consultation and a speedy decision on exact specification.

Is for you, if you cannot pay us a visit. If you cannot come to us we will come to you. We believe that, with modern systems of communication, and by replacing glass with an unbreakable acrylic, a service in this way can be practical. . Here’s how:-


1. You are invited to dowload a selection of over 50 frames and 20 mountbaords as way of colour prints. (See downloads).
A 'mini-showcase' for your consideration.


2. You then contact us either for more information or with a framing project in mind (See quotation request). Contact is established and comntinued by phone, email or post. Actual samples of the two or three most favoured frames would be sent to help make a final decision..


3. After discussions between us a final decision is made on the specification which enables us to give a quotation for the work itself and
packing and carriage.


4. You send the artwork to us. Flexible artwork eg, prints, photos, needlework, sport shirts, etc can be despatched in tubes or parcels (provided if necessary) ‘3D’ artwork eg decoupage, should be boxed. Full payment as per the quotation would be required at this stage. Just Frames reserves the right to re-negotiate the price should we, upon seeing the artwork, find that it differs significantly from the brief on which the quotation was based.
