Navigating and the basics


First of all you need to be able to navigate your way around the eFRAME website. The 2 most important navigation zones are up the top of the page and down the left hand side of the page. The "header" section allows you to visit the most important pages on the website. The left hand menu allows you to burrow deep into the site, finding specific pages easily and quickly. The left hand menu also doubles up as a filtering system whilst browsing our custom frame selections.

The content section is always in the centre of the page and can sometimes (on our most visited pages) replace the left hand menu.

Colours & Navigation

We look to use colour as a functional aspect on eFRAME. Whenever you see a blue button this will take you to what we think will be the next most useful page for you to visit. A green button symbolises the fact you can begin, move along or end your online shopping experience. You can never get lost on eFRAME even though we have nearly 1 million unique pages.

All of our ready made items will have a 'More Info' button next to them. Click it and you will be taken through to our product page where you can view larger images, find out more about the product and delivery dates. Again, we use colour as a function.

Various buttons

The Frame Studio

Before you begin

After choosing whether you need a frame, mount or both you are taken through the main studio screen. Down the right hand side you have the clickable menu items and on the left hand side you have a real time image of the frame you are building. The green buttons at the top perform various functions which you may find useful. You can visit any menu section at all points during the process, you are not restricted to go via the order we set.
