eFrame - Bespoke Frames Online *REVIEW*

I'm pretty sure we've all had to find a frame for something that is an awkward size before. There is nothing more frustrating than getting a new piece or art and then discovering that it isn't a standard size, and you can't just pop along to your usual shop to get a frame for it. 

That's where eFrame comes in!

eFrame is an online custom framing website where you can build a picture frame to whatever dimensions you need - with a choice of so many different colours, materials and finishes you'll definitely find what you are looking for on their easy to use website. 

eFrame prides itself on being up to 70% cheaper than bespoke framing services on the high street - so you'll get fab frames for a lot less money if you shop with them. 

For our 2nd wedding anniversary this year (cotton) hubby bought me a gorgeous printed tea towel with a fab British biscuit design on it by illustrator Charlotte Farmer - I absolutely loved it and knew straight away that is was too good to dry the dishes with! I decided I would like to frame it, and pop it up in my dining room - but I didn't like any frames I tried - they just didn't fit my tea towel well enough. I was desperate to get the tea towel up on wall in time for hosting friends and family over Christmas, but I was at a loss as to where to find a decent frame to fit at a reasonable price. 

Then eFrame got in touch and offered to make me a bespoke frame to fit it perfectly! 

I found their website really easy to navigate and after having measured my tea towel exactly it only took me a few minutes to pop in the dimensions online, and decide on what style frame I would like. In the end I chose the whitewashed/heavily distressed frame with their special Clarity+ glazing (glass-like acrylic, a much safer option than glass if you have children in the house). 

My frame cost £40.78 in total (including VAT and delivery charge) which I think is really great value for a bespoke frame of this size. 

After just a few days my frame arrived - it was packaged so well and I was extremely pleased with the quality of the frame over all. In my opinion it was well worth the £40 and a few minutes tinkering online to order the frame - it really was just what I was looking for...

T'ah d'ah! My beautiful biscuit print tea towel finally has a perfect frame and a forever-home in my dining room! 

It only took a few minutes to pop my tea towel into the frame, close it, and pop it up on the wall - eFrame frames come with glazing, a backing board and a hanging kit as standard, so whatever you choose you'll be able to unwrap your frame and get it on the wall in no time at all! 

My bespoke frame from eFrame fits my tea towel perfectly!

The finished affect now that my tea towel is finally in a well fitting frame is just brilliant - it is a fab addition to my dining room, and it is clear the frame is of high quality and the perfect fit for the dimension of the tea towel. 

I would highly recommend eFrame's bespoke framing service: if you have an awkward sized picture you've been meaning to get round to framing then why not order now and get it in time for Christmas?

Bye for now!
