Shudehill Silver Photo Frame
Advantages: Excellent quality, Widely available, Relatively cheap
Disadvantages: None for me!
Since the birth of my son last July my home has been taken over with photographs of the little man each of which displayed in various sized photo frames. I generally buy frames as and when I need them giving little thought to the matter but for 'special' photos I like to buy good quality frames that take pride of place on my living room coffee table. Shudehill frames offer a good balance between quality and cost with the prices of them working out to be very reasonable for how they look and I think they can make for pretty nice gifts too.
This review will focus on the frame featured in Dooyoo's picture, I suggested the product here as it's the latest frame I bought for myself and with a birthday coming up in the family I thought it would make for a fantastic personal gift when given complete with a photograph. The frames I bought measure 7" x 5" although they are available in a standard 6" x 4" too and are nicely packaged with tissue paper protecting the metal and presented in a outer flat box which is blue in colour. The silver metal has a brushed appearance to it so it looks matt rather than shiny and looks a lot more expensive than the £3.75 I paid for each of mine. The stand at the back of the frame is covered in a plush velvet material, black in colour and again good quality with a few catches that hold it in place over a photograph and sandwiched by a simple glass viewing window. Removing the back to put a photo in takes no time at all and once a photo has been put in place the back simply slots back into place and holds firm thanks to the catches and a decent sized stand which allows the photograph to be stood up and displayed.
I've bought a few Shudehill frames in the past and have never had any troubles with discolouration of the metal or any signs of wear after they have been wiped over. The finish of the frames is fantastic I think and whilst they are subtle in their appearance I think they have an understated quality to them which doesn't detract from the image they are displaying. As mentioned I bought a second frame recently to give away as an upcoming birthday present and for me they make an inexpensive, personalised gift which I know will be well received and admired. There's nothing to complain about as far as how the frames are made, the quality of materials used is excellent and every frame I've bought from the company has had the same look of quality to them, compared to some cheaper frames that are available I do think that Shudehill produce some lovely looking items and for me these frames add a touch of elegance to my living room.
They're usually available in card and gift shops, Shudehill generally produce giftware and their recognisable blue boxes should be easily found at a number of high street shops and online retailers. I bought my frames from amazon as I had some vouchers to use and for £3.75 each I really have nothing to criticise them on, I love photographs anyway and have always displayed them around my home to me are a lovely way of personalising the place you live in and a way to display some cherished memories.
Five stars as a rating from me, thanks for reading my review.
Summary: Quality frames from Shudehill. For displaying precious memories.
