Classic Frame Overview

With an all-wood frame, the Classic frame range is our modernistic interpretation and re-imagining of standard contemporary wooden photo frames. What elevates them above the standard is the skill and eye of our in-house designer whose brief was to produce a new kind of contemporary wooden photo frame for the widest variety of artwork, sketches, prints, and photography. Our beautifully angular and minimalist-styled black photo frames and white photo frames give any image you intend for display an additional prominence and visual boost. The finish of the Classic frame is smooth to the touch. Visually, it’s flat, minimalist, and totally on point with current interior design trends.

For us, the key underlying the overall aesthetic effect of the Classic range is its beautiful matt finish. While many images and photographs do benefit from a glossier, more reflective frame, more muted larger pictures printed on matte paper tend to be overshadowed by a shinier frame surface. For larger matte photographs, the Classic frame is, for many, the most suitable choice. Black picture frames from our Classic range lend themselves very well to mono imagery, sketches, and full colour pieces. Choose a white frame for any photographic prints or for any contemporary art (and reproductions) to ensure that the colours of and vividness in the image you’re displaying receives the maximum prominence required.

These handmade frames are available in either Matt Black or Matt White in seven different formats. You can choose from one of our standard sizes or get in touch with our team on a more bespoke project you’re working on. The Classic range of contemporary wooden photo frames are built in-house by our experienced and professional workshop craftspeople.

Collage Picture Frames

Professional paper types available to print your photos online with

The modernist, clean, and sleek frames in the Classic range make them the perfect contemporary wooden photo frame for normal-sized multi-aperture collage photo frames right up to large collage picture frames.

The stylish but understated matt finish of the frames bestows real visual impact on the collection of images and photographs you want to spotlight through the use of a wall collage picture frame.

The cornered-right angles used so well by the Classic frame range never threaten to crowd out the images and photographs in your collage picture frame – in fact, they highlight what you’re wanting your family and your visitors to enjoy and appreciate.

Whether you want a large collage photo frame or a simple wall frame picture collage, our Classic frame is an elegant, suitable, and understated surround. Use our online drag-and-drop intuitive design tool to build yours straight away – load on the photographs you want (you can choose up to 9), position where you want them to go, and then send it to our in-house team of craftspeople to build.

If you want a completely bespoke Classic collage photo frame, email us the size of the frame you want to use together with an idea of the gaps between the photos and the sides of the frame. We’ll then get back to you with a sketch design.

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 to go within your contemporary wooden photo frame.

  • 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.

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.


Bleed and safe areas

Please ensure your images for your contemporary wooden photo frame include at least a 5mm bleed to avoid any unwanted cropping at the edges of your image. All our printers and production methods can crop around 3-5mm into the print space so ensure that heads, feet, dresses and other important parts of your image are not place too close to the edge of the design. This is also a requirement when opting for a mount as this will physically overlay your images to avoid any white edges, so will cover 3-5mm of each edge of every image. This would be for every picture in multi-apeture mounts, so please place your images consciously. Please see example image above for reference.
