Frame again


Do you find that you have a lot of photos on your phone/iPad that you think would look brilliant in a frame, or when visiting friends and family, snap some really lovely shots and other than upload them to Facebook, really do nothing with them? Well let me introduce you to Frame Again.

Frame Again is an independent UK company started by two Camden-based entrepreneurs, Jake Hayman (above, left) and Joe Kenyon, with a love for both the technology that allows us to take more photos and that special, traditional feel of putting a framed photo on display with no plans to take it down. We wanted to put permanence back into photography and ease into photo printing and framing. It took twelve months of planning how to make it happen with other jobs and no financing but we eventually found some backers who believed in us and the things have moved quickly since.


So to use the service simply go to Frame Again and upload your photo directly from your device, be it computer, Instagram or your phone and then choose the colour of your frame base and frame ring.  This is something you can spend ages deciding over, even I changed my mind numerous times!

It is so time consuming printing off pictures and then having to cut them to size to display in your frames - this is why I love Frame Again. They take away the hassle of printing the photographs as you simply upload your picture directly from Instagram or from your computer, and they arrive already fitted into your frame - which is also designed by you! You can choose the colours of the frame base and the frame ring - as you can see from my pictures I opted for a very classic black and white, simply because I think the colours are really versatile and will match the decor in every room of the house. The quality of the photo paper is really good, I wasn't sure how my image would look as it was taken from an iPhone but the printing is really good quality and I am impressed with the results.

Another fun fact is that the frames are actually free standing; as you can see from the images above; Frame Again frames are really attractive, modern and cute cube shapes with a thick base meaning they can stand alone without anything holding them up. Of - course, you can also hang the frames against a wall if you want to.

After browsing their website I also discovered that the frames have magnetic sides, so if you have a few frames this will make a great display altogether. This is how the frames work - with magnets. The frame itself is actually kept together by magnetic force, which makes it much more safer than having to bend the metal at the edge of a frame when changing pictures. I don't know about you but that is one of my pet peeves when changing photographs in frames.

You can even change the photo in the frame if you wish to, it is actually really easy and simple to do. Instructions are provided on the sleeve that the frame arrives with. Delivery is really quick and my frame arrived really well packaged.

Frame Again is such a straight-forward website to use, I really recommend Frame Again if you like to display your special pictures in a modern way. 


I think this is such a brilliant idea.  It is perfect for saving those precious memories quickly and having something to do with them rather than leave them sitting in your iCloud.  You can of course order as many different frames as you wish, I can see this whole concept being quite addictive!
Have you ever used Frame Again? Is it something you would use?

  3. This a wonderful idea! I usually take a lot of pictures and share them on social networks, but I never print them because it takes too long! But this website is actually brilliant!
