I am looking to setup a photography print business. Does anyone know of any suppliers that can provide frames for 18 x 12" photos? Ideally it would be good if they were UK based.

Someone should make a sticky about this... – Michael K Feb 28 '12 at 15:45
@MichaelK — a sticky? We ain't got no stickies. This isn't a bulletin board. – mattdm Feb 28 '12 at 16:01
I know... therefore I thought it's clear that I meant something like this… – Michael K Feb 28 '12 at 16:44
"Community wiki". That's a decent approach for questions which are just lists of facts (as this might indeed be). It's less good (that is, not good at all) for answers which include experiences with suppliers and subjective analysis of why one might pick one over the other. And, it's that which makes it useful to have answers on Stack Exchange rather than just telling people do a google search for "photo frames uk". CW fact-lists can work, but usually stagnate and become useless, as there's no incentive or responsibility to maintain them. – mattdm Feb 28 '12 at 17:07

Does anyone have any experience of the quality of the frames from this supplier? – Feb 28 '12 at 17:33

I use Picture Frames Direct

Very good in price, mostly glass and they have a huge range, and when they deliver the frames are wrapped in heaps of bubble wrap so very well protected while in transit.

If you order over the phone, which is what I do, you will get sound advice as well as being able to ask lots of questions, change the colour and apeture of the mount or even order double mounts.

If you are looking for Quality and aren't worried about price then Kenro are another option, however they supply only to professional photography shops and studios, and supply in bulk, when I first ordered I needed to order a min of 5 of the same frames.
