Sam Warburton Wales - British & Irish Lions Rugby Captain delivers special gift to Cadremont

At Cadremont we supply lots of  sports clubs. Anything from signed shirts / boots / boxing gloves to the more standard framing for end of year awards etc.

We recently had Sam Warburton the Cardiff Blues, Wales and British & Irish Rugby Captain call in to give Peter Williams a match worn and signed shirt from the 2012 Grand Slam season.

Over the years we have helped Sam with various items which have been framed and then auctioned off for charity.

If you have a  photo or piece or memorabilia  you want framed then please just ask us.

We deal with numerous sports clubs and associations across the UK and are always happy to quote and assist with whatever you need.

Thanks  again Sam and good luck for the new season.

Cadremont picture frame reaches the Whitehouse

Barack Obama Wales NATO - Cadremont picture frameWe provide picture frames to lots of various Rugby clubs in the UK – the Newport Gwent Dragons being one of many.  As you may have heard the NATO conference is taking place at the now world famous Celtic Manor Golf Resort in Newport.  Security has been very tight, roads have been closed as Wales welcomes the world leaders from NATO to a very sunny Wales.

We have numerous ships docked in Cardiff Bay from all around the world, Apache helicopters flying over Cardiff Castle. There is even a destroyer class ship docked just off Penarth Pier. Both David Cameron and Barack Obama have visited a school in Newport – and survived.

But the biggest story of the conference (ok – at least one of the biggest) was that a picture frame made by Cadremont for the Newport Gwent Dragons was presented to the US president and his family.

The Wedding Season has officially started

Wedding Signature Frame

The Wedding Season has officially started

Signature Frame - Signature Mount for weddings and special eventsSpring has finally sprung the bluebells have flowered and the wedding season seems to have sparked into life.

If you are a photographer looking to offer something extra and different for your weddings or if you are the happy couple and want something unique, then maybe you need to look at having a Signature Frame or Signature Mount as they are sometimes referred as.

Like all good things the idea is very simple.  A large frame that will surround a 16×20 inch picture mount. The thick outer mount is signed by all your guests and you add in a picture from the big day. All signed ? – then it’s ready to hang on the wall.  Cadremont were one of the first in the UK to offer these and they are still a firm favourite today.  There are a range of frame types & styles to choose from and they can also be engraved as well if you want.

Find out more about the Signature Frames available

And now for the boring bits – but we thought you may like to know.  We only ever use high quality conservation standard, white core, acid free mount board.  Designed to not deteriorate or degrade for up to 300 years.  The extra thick mount board  is bevel cut this gives real depth to the finished artwork.

We’ve found that these signature frames are not just being used for Weddings but also for special birthdays’, retirements’ in fact any special occasion.

First order to cross the Atlantic

Overseas Orders

 

picture mounts picture frames  delivery to USA

We recently delivered a large consignment of picture frames to a multi national company based in New York.

We had confirmation through today that they had arrived in one piece and the customer was happy – phew!

Usually our orders come from the UK and Ireland – with the occasional delivery to Europe.  The guys in the workshop are now wondering where the next overseas order will come from and whether it will further away than New York.

 

We try and keep our shipping costs down to a minimum and offer free shipping in Europe and the UK whenever possible – depending on the size of the order.

Penarth pier oil painting

 

We recently framed a beautiful oil painting from local artist Nick Davies.  Nick paints local scenes in and around Wales and the west country.   She asked us to mount and frame it for her – so we did.

Here is the finished version – to see some more examples please click here

New Multi Aperture Mounts layout options

 

We had a recent comment from a customer saying that they were trying to order a ‘ multi photo frames mount ‘ , but got so confused they gave up and phoned us instead (thanks Tony).   We had a look and decided to make a few changes.

Rather than selecting the frame size and then the mount style / number of apertures etc. We have changed it so that you can see the various mount styles up front on the page – all 30+ of them !! and then select a frame afterwards.

Every mount style will tell you what frame size will fit around the mount.  Just select a colour and if you want a double or single mount.  Every variation of  our Multi Aperture photo frame mounts should cover just about every possible combination. However if there is a particular style you want that we haven’t thought of – then just drop us a line and we’ll see if we can add it to the collection.
