Natural Edge Framing and Photography Terms and Conditions

Natural Edge Framing and Photography takes great pride in its commitment to customer satisfaction. We invite you to read our Terms and Conditions to get the most out of your experience with us.

As we receive orders and go about constructing our frames every effort is made to replicate them as shown on our website and social media pages. However, what you see is not always what you get; let us explain.

Frames using prefabricated mouldings can easily be replicated.  Each moulding will always be the same in colour, texture, appearance and dimension.

Straight edge timber frames can also be replicated but there will be a difference.  Each length of timber we use has its own unique beauty.  Straight edge frame dimensions can be made the same but the frame’s appearance will include its own grain pattern. Again, this means the dimensions can be precise but the colour and texture will be different each time.

Our bark edge timber frames will appear different every time.  They will be different in shape, texture and often colour.  While we can accomodate your choice of timber, making the same bark edge frame to one you see on our website is not possible.  Irregularities in each timber’s live edge will make all frames vary in appearance.   Therefore, the exact replication of a bark edge frame you see on our website can not be achieved.   While the natural edge gives our frames their beauty and unique appeal, every bark edge frame we make will be different to the last.

Timber Availability:

Timber species as presented on our web site are available while stocks are in place.  At times, however, we can not guarantee consistent stocks due to certain circumstances.  Events such as bush fire, moratoriums on logging, mill closures, diseases and COVID19 restrictions can limit availability.

Natural Edge Framing and Photography follows ethical business practices.  We comply with current legislated regulations as set down within the Western Australian DBCA Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and Regulations 2018.

We also comply with regulations as set out in the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment Biosecurity Act 2015.  You can be assured all materials used in our products are sourced responsibly.
