Picture Frames and Photo Mounts by Cadremont. All our news and views will be displayed here.
Any photographers out there ? – we know there are.
Are you aware of the Real Photographers Forum ? www.realphotographersforum.com is a “Real Name” photography forum and Community based Ezine for people to discuss and share photography as a hobby or profession with like minded people. We love this – as it means no hiding behind a false name and no keyboard warrior behaviour. People then behave as they would in real life – with manners and respect. They are a community based site where all the members are invited to discuss anything and everything to do with photography in a polite and friendly manner (no cliques, no attitudes)
No matter what your skill level is – everyone can always learn a new trick or technique regardless of how long they have been a photographer and this site is certainly very friendly
All of the articles in the Ezine are written by the members and are taken from interesting threads within the forum itself. This is fairly unique within photography ezines as most are run centrally and contain more specific news on recently released products etc. Articles within their ezine come from all over the world and cover all sorts of photography related subjects… and most importantly are written by “Joe-Enthusiast” as opposed to a Journalist in an office. This gives a really nice diversity of photography related articles.
Their long term goal is to build up a resource of information relating to all aspects of photography written and complied from people all over the world.
Membership to the site is free and the only thing they ask of members is to be considerate and polite to the other members and to abide by our site rules. Pay them a visit and have a look.
At Cadremont we are always interested in giving a mention to companies we deal with that we believe are giving a service that offers value for money, great customer service and is also helping to promote Artists by selling their work direct to your door. Hilary and Richard have been running West Country Galleries full time since Nov last year. The business has been in operation since 2007 , but since Hilary and Richard have been in charge it has gone from strength to strength. We agree – just like the website says
Art you treasure…from the place you love
FAREWELL PICCADILLY PHOTOGRAPHIC / ALBUMS
We would like to pay tribute to Piccadilly Albums who for decades provided a first-class service to many photographers and organizations around South Wales and beyond. A family-run business, they will be missed by many in the trade.
Changing times often give rise to new opportunities and here at CADREMONT we would like to offer a 20% DISCOUNT to all Piccadilly’s customers both past and present from now until the end of May.
As well as supplying frames and mounts we also manufactured Piccadilly’s reportage overlays. You’ll be surprised at our prices… for example, our standard price for a reportage overlay is just £1.60!!
Our online service offers fast turnaround, collection or delivery options and simple payment services on our wide range of products.
Picture Frames to Norway – not a problem.
Having recently shipped a large order to a gallery in the South of France. Last week we went in the other direction. We had an enquiry from Sinem in Norway.
He wanted some custom cut mounts and frames to match. We processed the order and it was dispatched. Today we had an email from Sinem and wanted to post it here
I have just received my order from you (Norway), I am extremely happy with it. Such workmanship and I especially liked the colour of the black mounts a lot. I also appreceiate how well you have packed the whole thing. Just wanted to thank you. I’ll be putting a bigger order soon hopefully.
Thanks for letting us Sinem – always a pleasure to help.
Christmas Holiday opening / closing dates

Personalised photo frames – a unique gift for any special event.
You name it – We frame it
We have just created a new webpage about this – but thought we’d make a post as well. If you are looking for a unique personalised gift to give someone for a special occasion be it a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or as a momento . As the title of the post says – “you name it – we frame”.
If you want a custom made mount with a message cut out of it and the then want to insert some photos under the letters then take a look at this :-
If you would like it framed – that is not a problem – just pick the frame you want from the drop down list – and you’re done. A 6 letter mount plus frame starting from £14 or the mount on it’s own from £4. All the mounts are cut using are usual acid free, bevel cut, white core, conservation standard mountboard. Please allow us to interpret that for you – it means it wont fade and wont damage your artwork. Beware of anyone who doesnt adhere to these standards.
If you dont want to display photos in your mount – then we also can cut a mount with your name, a message , your team etc. There are over 38 colours to choose from – and if we dont have the colour you want – just ask – and we’ll be please to help. As per – if you want it framed – not a problem – just select the frame you want from the list and we’ll do the rest.
Here’s an example :-
New Signature Frames revealed
We have been asked probably hundreds of times by our customers to update our range of signature mounts. So in response, today we would like to inform everyone that we have updated our range to cater for all budgets and styles.
We now a varied rangle of frame colours and styles. We have also added a couple of new features. These signature frames now come fitted with double mounts. So what you may ask ? – well this means that if you have a wedding or special day – you can now co-ordinate your signing frame to be match the colour theme. The bride is in white and the bridesmaids’ are in turquoise , then chose an ivory top mount and a turquoise bottom mount.
We have also included the option of having an engraved nameplate (silver or gold) in the mount as well. Big enough for 3 lines of text for example
Celebrating the Wedding of
Williame & Kate
1st July 2010
All our frames are 20×16 inch dimensions. The mounts are acid free, standard white core conservation mountboard – always make sure that any mounts you buy adhere to this level of quality – buy inferior quality and you will soon live to regret it.
They all come with glass as standard. The glass is fitted after your big day once all your guests have signed. If there are other options or features you would like to see – please ask us – we are always on the look out for feedback.

We had a panic on this week. We had a request in from a newly married couple. They had planned to use one of their wedding photos in a wedding signature frame as a present, for both sides of the family.
The wedding photographer they had used (a family friend) hadn’t quite lived up to expectations. Some of the main bride and groom shots had not quite worked out. Now most people may just Google “Wedding Photographers in Cardiff” , but we are lucky in that we have known a local wedding photographer for some years, and if he cant help out then he can recommend someone who can.
No Need – we put Phill in touch with the couple and within a day he had arranged a post wedding shoot of the couple and close family / friends and they managed to get the pictures they wanted. Even the vicar was available.
We dont get requests like this every week – but we’d just like to say thanks to Phill for going that extra step to help out. A great job – well done.
A while ago we launched our Pinstripe Mount. unique in that no one else makes this type of mount. We launched at this years Focus 2010 exhibition and the results so far mean we can safely say it has been a roaring success. Dont take our word for it though…
