How our gallery-quality framed photo prints are made

Your best photo memories should shine in a frame that stands the test of time. So we've curated a collection of handmade, sustainably sourced frames to bring gallery quality to the comfort of your own home. How did we do it? It's a team effort between our talented in-house designers and our family of skilled makers in the UK.


We only use the best printing techniques

We print your photos using premium printing techniques and 12 colour archival inks for lifelike quality that really lasts. Every print is lightfast for 75 years – no fading or discolouration.

We pride ourselves on paper quality

We pride ourselves on paper quality

"After several research trips to different exhibitions, we chose a 100% cotton-smooth heavyweight photo paper. It's of the archival quality you see in museums and art galleries. We love its depth of tone and all-round versatility. Our customers can feel confident when printing their black and white or colour photographs" - Jess, Head of Design.


And let us tell you about our mounts...

Our mounted photo prints are carefully set behind a bevel-cut mount that won’t discolour over time. "The mounts we've chosen really give your photos the room to breathe. We’ve curated a considered collection of layouts that work effortlessly together – perfect for creating your own gallery wall." - Jess, Head of Design.


Our frames, exclusive to Papier

Our frames, exclusive to Papier

When we couldn’t quite find the perfect frame, we designed our own. Our exclusive solid wood mouldings are sustainably sourced and Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited. Each one is handmade in the UK by skilled craftsmen and women and comes in a smooth black or white finish. "We chose acrylic glazing as it has great clarity and is lightweight, even in our large frames, making it better for older plasterwork or walls. It's also shatter-resistant and the safest option when hanging prints in a child's room." – Olivia, Buying & Merchandising Manager.

Made by hand, delivered with care
