About Your Light Up Box Frames
These beautiful customised light up frames will create a unique finish to any room. They are both decorative and functional, as they feature an LED back light for art. This light can be adjusted thanks to the built in dimmer switch, and can also be turned on and off using the same switch. The LED light casts a warming glow and will give new life and definition to your designs, which are printed backing onto the light. The light will actually shine through your print, in a way that you have never seen before. The FSC wooden frame is available in either a smart matt black or a chic glossy white, so you can choose the frame that best suits your design.

How Your Light Up Box Frames Are Made
We use a specialist printing method that creates a long-lasting, full-colour print. The only thing that can make it look better is from the light of the built-in LED light. Our technicians craft the FSC wooden frame by hand, ensuring a highly professional and smooth look. The finish of your choice - matt black or glossy white - is applied to the entire frame. Once your design is printed, it is placed in front of the LED backlight. This is what makes your artwork appear to glow. We then add a shatterproof acrylic pane to complete the finish of your frame. This is a highly durable material that has the appearance of glass but is far more hard wearing. On the back of the frame are a stand and a dimmer switch, which is also used to turn the light on and off. A 2m cable with plug is attached to the back.
Maintain the look of your custom light up frame and keep your designs nice and vibrant by giving your frame a regular dusting. As with any electrical appliance, keep water away from the plug socket and bulb at all times.
If you want to design your own light-up frame, there are a couple of things to keep in mind to get the most out of your frame. Firstly, consider the colour of your frame. We offer a matt black or a glossy white finish. Opt for the colour that will make your artwork pop. We also suggest keeping the size of the frame in mind. The total dimensions are 19 x 19cm with a depth of 3.5cm. The total visible print size is 15 x 15cm. Due to this size, we recommend uploading a single image as opposed to a montage or collage. This is to ensure that all fine lines and details are depicted with total clarity and precision.

Frequently asked questions:
What is the light up box frame made from?
Your frame is handmade in London using the finest, high quality materials. We source FSC wood to craft the wooden frames. These are cut to size by skilled technicians before being turned into a chic frame. The pane is made from shatterproof acrylic, which makes it all the more durable. Finally, we use an LED light, dimmer, cord and plug.
What will my print look like?
We print your designs in HD quality. Details and fine lines are printed with absolute clarity, and colours are bold and vibrant. Your designs will look even more powerful when they are lit up from behind by the LED back light. Suddenly, details are more defined and colours are given more life. Try it for yourself and see.
Does the light up frame stand up on its own?
This stylish customised light up box frame looks beautiful when placed on a bedside table, desk or side table. In order to ensure it stands its own, we have created a handy little stand at the back of the frame. This will allow you to prop it up sturdily in the place of your choosing. Wherever it is, we guarantee it will make a statement.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
