Our Materials

We only use the highest quality, acid free materials in our picture frames, to conservation standards if required, to ensure the minimum impact to your artwork, this includes:

  • Mouldings: We have a wide variety of finishes to choose from, including natural, stained, metallic and painted. With access to all major suppliers we can order any style you might want.
  • Glass: AR70 Art Glass is our standard, giving excellent protection against fading from UV light and an anti-reflective coating reducing unwanted reflections to less than 1%. We also offer Art Glass with up to 99% UV protection for museum quality pictures, or a cheaper ‘Float’ glass if you’re on a budget.
  • Mat board: We offer an almost unlimited variety of colours and textures to choose from.

Art Glass vs Float Glass What’s the Difference?

Art glass is more expensive that Float glass, but the difference is worth it.

  • Float glass has a slightly green tone, which can affect the look of the artwork a little, and only offers ~40% UV filtration and ~8% light Reflection.
  • Art Glass has a low iron, water white substrate which renders true colour and no distortion at any viewing angle, it provides 70% to 99% UV filtration and reduces reflections to <1.5%, it is also scratch resistant.


We offer AR70 as standard, but can provide ArtGlass at higher specifications, float or high quality acrylics on request.

Our Process

When you bring your artwork to Up in Frames we’ll take the time to understand your needs. We’ll work with you to create a custom frame that meets your specifications and complements your home or office.

The finished product is mounted with minimum impact to the artwork whilst protecting against foxing, cockling or buckling, sealed with specialist materials and a backing board to protect against dust or moisture ingress, ensuring your artwork stays in top condition for generations to come.

Our framing process typically includes the following steps:

We'll carefully inspect your artwork to determine the best way to frame it.

We'll discuss your framing options with you and help you choose the right materials and finishes.

We'll create a custom frame for your artwork, taking into account its size, shape, and weight.

We'll mount, mat, seal, frame and back your artwork and attach the correct fixings for hanging.
