Overview

Shabby chic photo frame ranges like those in our Vintage collection have long been en vogue for the latest on-trend interior designers.

Finding original shabby chic items which hark backs to an earlier age and demonstrates the passage of time since its original construction is a time-consuming and expensive task. That’s why, to meet professional and consumer demand, frames in our Vintage collection have been skilfully distressed to lend the appearance of an antique to what is a brand new frame built to today’s much higher standards.

By painting, rubbing off, and sanding away a frame’s top coating, our craftspeople achieve that aged and distressed looking on these shabby chic photo frames. This “faded grandeur” is very visually appealing – in fact, many customers refer to items from this range as either ornate picture frames, antique photo frames, and vintage photo frames.

These shabby chic photo frames are available in Dark Grey, White, Silver, or Sand colours. Professionals and consumers value the Vintage range because its hand finish moulding works especially well with matt fine art papers. Our frames lend elegance and presence to multi-aperture collages and they bestow a real homeliness to pictures of family, friends, and good times.

Vintage retro picture frames are available in 11 portrait and landscape sizes as well as in 6 square sizes. We can design a vintage picture frame to order – just let know the measurements you want and our experienced and passionate team of craftspeople will build you your own bespoke antique picture frame. All Vintage frames are made in-house by the SIM Frame team using the highest quality sustainable woods.

Paper Samples

Professional paper types available to print your photos online with

SIM Frame offers you six different types of industry-leading printing paper on which to transfer your photography or other imagery.

  • Lustre paper - a type of semi matte paper, is better in producing a “film” effect with an emphasis very much on the texture of the image. Photographers tend to choose lustre paper for images with vibrant colours or for monochrome images.
  • Gloss paper - uses an extra layer of coating to give the colours in a photograph or an image an extra visual punch. Gloss paper is superb at reproducing darker colours and deeper blacks which serves to provide an additional element of contrast.
  • Photo rag paper - is a deep matt paper choice for both artists and photographers seeking the highest quality of artistic and fine art prints. Very versatile and equally capable in producing the visually stunning colour and monochrome prints, Professional Image Maker magazine describes photo rag as “the gold standard against which other papers are compared”.
  • Baryta paper - possessing the “wow” factor particularly on black and white imagery, our 325gsm FineArt Baryta paper promises you the best in colour depth, high definition imagery, and palette
  • German etching - the 310gsm paper has a beautiful textured surface and delivers incredible detail on both high-end photography and more traditional prints.
  • Metallic paper - offers the undoubted colour vibrancy options you get with gloss paper but it adds an extra iridescence providing a boost to both the warmth and the depth of an image. The metallic effect finish makes this type of paper the professionals’ favourite for images where contrast really needs to be brought out.

You can select up to 9 images for inclusion on your collage (for either a portrait, landscape or a square layout) using our intuitive online editing tool.

Mount Colour Samples

Photo mounts are available black, white, cream and bright white

Choose from four different coloured frame mounts – white, black, cream, and bright white. You can order a free Mount sample pack online – only pay postage and packaging charges.

Hanging System

SIM Frame’s hanging systems fix solidly and reliably to your walls and they’re ready out of the box. Rather than relying on a length of string slung between to different points on your frame on which to hang your image, our frames have two solid points, both of which allow for small 10mm adjustments to make sure that you get the perfect position.
