It’s been over 18 months since we launched our frame range, and it’s time for the next step. We’ve been absolutely delighted with the response so far, but we want to do even better, and we’re pretty excited to get started!
We’ll be announcing updates as they’re ready to go live, but here's an overview of what’s coming up — plus an invitation to send us your own feedback and suggestions.
1. With the benefit of experience we’re introducing new glazing options. From today, for shipments within New Zealand, we’re moving to Framer’s Glass as standard in most sizes. Perfect clarity, no visual distortion, not susceptible to damage from housekeeping! We’ll be introducing Conservation Clear (anti-UV) glass as an upgrade option.
As they’re more liable to damage in transit, sizes larger than A1 will continue to be supplied with acrylic. For the same reason so will all frames shipped outside New Zealand. We will continue to offer acrylic in all sizes as an optional extra.
2. We’re reviewing adding new mouldings and sizes and also considering some “diptych “and “triptych” options designed to display multiple same-size prints in the one frame. We'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see.
3. We’re working on how to make selling our frames easier online. We’re refining the price list function in Workspace so that, if you’re selling frames through your Workspace online galleries, you can restrict the mouldings and mat templates you offer, as well as manage the paper and print options you offer, and set prices based on them.
4. Finally, we’re in the final stages of developing an optional new Workspace feature called the “Print Shop.” It’s been a dream of ours for some time to build an eCommerce solution for photographers and artists who sell their work as decor or works of art, and we’re almost there. We can’t give you a release date yet, but it will be soon! If you're interested and want early access, join our Beta Facebook group here.
That’s it for now. If you have questions and suggestions please get in touch!
