Picture frames (as in actual hang on the wall type)

I'm looking for some modern frames for hanging some pictures of the family on the wall. I have seen these by super frames 4 X 4 Fotoblok but they are quite pricey and I am dubious about handing over 250 for a frame I haven't seen. Has anyone used these frames and can vouch for them or can anyone recommend any other frames I should look at?
Thanks!

I do have quite a few ikea frames in my house. But fancy something acrylic this time. My local ikea don't do anything like those by super frames.

Re: Picture frames (as in actual hang on the wall type)

I saw something like this at the photo show at the NEC in the summer. I was not that impressed with what was on offer but I did consider buying one. The price must have been very much lower for me even to consider buying. In the end I did not. I would have a good look around for alternatives before spending 250 if I was you.

I use www.eframe.co.uk for my frames. They do traditional frames but can supply multi-opening mounts which look good and can be completely customised. it woild be a fraction of 250 and the frames look very professional. I recommend them!

Yes those are the same one I mentioned in the original post. So you recommend these having seen them at the show?

As far as I was aware these are not the same company that you put up in your original post.
The quality of what I saw at the show was very good and I thought they made there own products.
You could always ring them and find out. Must admit I have never had the call to use them, I have always been the more classical end of framing.

The link I submitted is a reseller for superframe as you cant buy direct from them. Hope that clears it up.
