Western Frame Overview

For millennia, wood has been the material of choice for handmade frames because of its inviting hues, its homeliness, its aesthetic appeal, and its feel to the touch. Reclaimed wood raises that bar because:

  • it’s eco-friendly,
  • old-growth wood is harder to source for photographers, interior designers, and homeowners,
  • it has its own history and story, and
  • no matter how skilled the craftsperson, the character and age of genuine reclaimed wood can not be copied or facsimiled.

Rather than try to make the old wood look new, the finish on these distressed picture frames in our Western range are far from perfect – but that’s what gives it its own unique presence and personality. You can see that personality in reclaimed wood photo frames – little individual marks unique to that finish and a distinctive hand paint washed finish make the Western collection a compelling mixture of the best in vintage picture frames, antique picture frames, and ornate picture frames.

These handmade reclaimed wood photo frames are most often used as to house older family photographs. However, there’s no photograph, sketch, artwork, or print that our Western frames can’t be used on – this distressed, antique style adds extra emphasis and impact to any image you wish to proudly display. Western frames are available in charcoal, white, grey, or biscuit, in 11 different sizes in portrait and landscape modes, and 6 in square mode. All of our frames are assembled in-house by our experienced and highly-skilled craftspeople to order using the very best quality reclaimed wood. Please get in touch if you want to speak with us about a bespoke size.

Collage Picture Frames

Professional paper types available to print your photos online with

The use of wood in framing and in furniture signifies homeliness, comfort, and the companionship of our loved ones. Wood’s usage in home fixtures and fittings is now so ingrained in us that using it as the primary material in regular collage photo frames and large collage photo frames is natural and fitting to a celebration of the best moments of our lives and in the lives of our loved ones.

Reclaimed wood photo frames, of course, tell a story all of their own – a story as unique as that of you and your family. Available in white, grey, charcoal, or biscuit hues, both the standard collage picture frames and large collage picture frames are the perfect marriage of ornateness, vintage aesthetics, and antiquity.

For your multi-aperture Western wall photo frame collage, you can select up to 9 different images for inclusion. You’re in control over the way it looks – use our online design tool to create the look you want with the photos you choose. Once you’ve finished, let our craftspeople do the work.

Alternatively, get us to design a unique bespoke frame to the size and orientation of your choice. Please send us your dimensions and a sketch of your idea and we’ll send you back a draft design for your comments and changes.

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 reclaimed wood 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 you reclaimed wood 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.
