Thanks everyone.

The wall wouldn't fit the Hobbycraft ones nina and we've got the nail holes now! grin

Wilko's didn't have them either KatyK.

Long Eaton isn't that far Tegan if I get really stuck! Thank you!

When trying to buy frames in the past, I have usually found what I want in Wilkinsons.

We took the LPs out of ours in an attempt to stop the flipping things sagging but it didn't help. Where's your picture framer Tegan? This direction or the other? IYSWIM.

I bought some from notonthehighstreet but they're metal and very difficult to hang. I'm going to ask my picture framer [who charges very reasonable rates] to make some for me. Annoyingly they're not strong enough to hold the LP as well so they float around the house. They're ok for propping up on shelves thought.

The white ones we have sag chelseababy which is what made me start to think about changing them. But if you have a link I'd be really grateful. I just ordered one that was 30 x 30 and the album cover won't fit in it as it's 32x32 and there's me thinking they were actually called a 12". confused

I got some black ones on amazon or eBay but not wooden.

kitty I think there's a company that specialises in providing frames for LP covers. Will ask my daughter, I think I learnt that from her.

In our 'playroom' we have 5 of our favourite LPs framed along one wall. I have decided that the white frames I have should really be black but I can't find any anywhere. They need to be 32cm square and I would ideally like wood. Has anyone any ideas where I could get some? I've tried Ikea, Amazon, The Range, TK Maxx, M&S, JL, B&Q. Thank you!! grin
