Our offices are based in Cambridge, UK.
eFRAME is an online picture frame and mount supplier that provides a
unique interactive web site for people to design and order online. We use cutting-edge technology throughout our business to take orders, manufacture and deliver custom and standard size high quality frames and mounts direct to the customer at less than half the price of the typical high street framer. At present, our entire product range is made at our dedicated, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in South Cambridgshire by a team of approximately 30 skilled staff.
Inside one of our customer support offices.
What We Offer
Founded in 2002, the company was formed to make bespoke frames for friends and neighbours. Soon after, and whilst still working from the "garden shed",
an opportunity arose to provide a service to primary schools whereby childrens' artwork was framed in order to be sold to parents at a fundraising school art exhibition.
During this phase of the company's growth over 100,000 children had their artwork framed by us. This business, together with other areas of activity, formed the bulk
of the company's operations until 2005 when the company moved into brand new premises in Cambridgeshire.
The web site allows everybody to buy frames, mounts and mirrors from a quantity of one upwards. We currently supply to all parts of the UK, and our customers include the following...
- Government-related (eg council offices, schools, military)
- Hotels, restaurants and conference venues
- Artists and Photographers
- Interior Designers
- Retail shops
- Marketing, advertising and promotional companies
Our Testimonial and Case Study pages highlight some of our customer experiences.
By manufacturing all products ourselves we are able to pass on substantial savings to the customer whilst at the same time justifying the huge cost of advertising and promotion required. Pricing is based on volume - those that buy more get a bigger discount.
Cutting Edge Manufacturing
We have invested heavily in advanced technology to allow us to produce quality products and high output. Last year we were the first company
in the UK to take delivery of the most up to date computerised mitre saw available. With an accuracy and repeatability of .1mm over a length of up to 2.5m.
The factory is also equipped with computerised underpinners for joining the frame corners, and a flat-bed computer-driven mount-cutting machine.
These are just a few of the factors that allows us to provide a bespoke service at such a value-for-money price.
Cutting Edge Product Range
The product range constitutes picture frames, photo frames, poster frames, picture mounts and framed mirrors. With over 600 moulding styles in wood and aluminium, and 350 mount styles we have the largest selection available online. Our web site allows the user to enter a size they want, combine the mouldings and mounts in an almost infinite number of ways and see the finished bespoke product on screen before they place the order. To manufacture the frames, the company uses high quality wooden moulding from sustainable sources as well as solid aluminium moulding
sourced from Nielsen mouldings in Germany.
All products are presently manufactured on site at our factory.
