Plastic Glazing Alternatives Warning

Plastic Glazing Alternatives Warning

At Strand, if you are purchasing custom picture frames over frame size 24" x 20" then we have automatically choosen a plastic glazing for your frame instead of 2mm float glass. This is because shipping custom frames over this size tend to get broken in transit. Our high quality plastic glazing alternatives are also much easier to ship due to their lightness.

We will not process larger custom frame orders over this size with 2mm float glass selected as they simply will not make it to you undamaged.
