Home > Contemporary Box Frames > 8x8" Square Frames
Our Contemporary 8x8" square frame uses specially cut side fillets to hold in the glass for a bigger display area without a front mount.
The frame is best-suited to 2 hand or foot casts of a baby 0-6m, 1-2 slim foot casts of a toddler or an open hand of an older child.
It can be bought on its own or you can use the drop down to add materials to convert it into a casting kit.
(Details shown apply to the default selection)
Our Contemporary frames are made from a single piece of softwood moulding and come in 5 modern colours. Due to their slim profile, they are perfectly suited to newborn casts (0-8m), flat hands of toddlers and older children, clay impressions and raised impressions. They do not have a front mount (like the Classic range) so give a full glass size display area and a modern look. They can be hung or placed landscape or portrait. The frames come ready-assembled so you do not have to deal with fiddly screws or loose panes of glass and it is easy to take the back off to mount your casts.Please Note: We changed supplier on 7th April 2021 and took the opportunity to make the Contemporary frames identical but just slightly deeper - 4cm rather than 3.5 cm internal depth.
Optionally add an Engraved Name-plate to your order to stick to the frame edge or to the back mount with your casts. They come in three different sizes with many colours and fonts to choose from. You just peel the strip off the back and stick it to your frame.
If you need additional casting material please go to our Materials and Refills section.

To help you decide which frame colour and paint combination to choose you can ask yourself a few questions, such as:
Baby casting creates incredibly detailed 3D plaster casts. We provide detailed instructions with over 100 step-by-step images and plenty of materials for you to achieve a good result. However, baby casting does take practice. We recommend making just one cast from start to finish so you can familiarise yourself with the materials and learn from any mistakes you make.
Steps to follow:
1. Make the mould - We use a safe impression material (alginate) widely used for decades by dentists and lifecasters worldwide. It is safe and designed specifically for use on skin. This material must be mixed quickly with COOL (not tepid or warm) water and sets fast, in about 2 minutes, to form a rubbery, flexible mould. The mixture will change colour from pink to pale grey as it sets.
Our delivery service is provided by Parcel Force (with one-hour delivery time slots) and Royal Mail, so you can be assured of a fast and secure delivery of the goods that you purchase from us. When you have placed your order, you will be contacted by email or text so that you know when your parcel has been dispatched and when it will be delivered. Courier deliveries can be tracked on the courier's website using the consignment number provided. If you need an item urgently, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do as we are only up the road to the Post Office.
Ensure you supply a mobile telephone number when you place an order so you can receive text notifications regarding your one hour delivery time-slot from Parcel Force and can be contacted by us if needed. If you cannot be sure you will be in, you could maybe use a neighbour's or work address. Parcel Force will not leave parcels in a 'safe' place but you can easily re-arrange your one hour delivery time slot via text or email. The Parcel Force Customer Services' number is 0344 8004466 should you ever need it. Open your parcel as soon as you receive it to check that it is undamaged. You only have until 3pm the next working day to inform us of any damage or shortage. This is so we can claim from the courier. Please see the table of charges below and the list of remote UK postcodes or email us at: email@example.com for a quote. Deliveries are made Monday - Friday only.
From £1.95 (Usually £5.95 for baby casting kits)
There must be someone to sign for a courier delivery at the supplied delivery address. If you are out a card will be left but only where the address does not have a shared entrance/ intercom. The card will indicate what to do to have your goods re-delivered. If a card cannot be left at the delivery address, your goods will be left at your local depot and we will need to contact you to find out when to re-deliver. If you are out a second time the goods will be returned to us. Unfortunately, if we have to re-send the goods via the courier, we will have to charge you again for postage as we will be charged again. We may also be charged to have the goods stored at your local depot or returned to us. We would have to pass this cost on to you. Orders can be picked up from the local depot if you miss the second delivery.
By signing for your goods you are agreeing that they have arrived intact and undamaged. You must, however, notify us of any damage by 2pm the next day so we can claim from the courier and get them to pay for the replacement. We require you to take a picture of the damaged item and packaging and email it to us. We will usually arrange for the damaged item to be collected from you and returned to us at which point we can send a replacement.
If you pay for an Express 2 day service but receive your item within the standard delivery time-frame of 4 days, we will refund the difference between the Express and Standard delivery charge (usually £2) to you - unless the delay is due to circumstances beyond our control E.g. Parcel mis-sort, bad weather, strike action, Christmas delivery delays, incorrect postcode or incomplete address given etc.
Lost Royal Mail/International Standard: If an item posted by Royal Mail (not courier) does not arrive we will need to wait 15 working days (from the due date of delivery) for UK 1st class parcels, 20 working days (from the due date of delivery) for European parcels and 25 working days (from the due date of delivery) for Rest of the World before Royal Mail agree it is lost and not simply delayed. We will then instigate a claim with Royal Mail. Part of the process may involve Royal Mail contacting you to confirm that you have not received the parcel. We can only refund you once our claim with Royal Mail has been settled. (From years of experience, the parcels usually turn up within the time-frame). Airmail is not a trackable service but you can pay £6 extra per parcel for Tracked and Signed which is trackable. Courier items: Courier parcels rarely go missing as it is a fully tracked service! On the one occasion that something did go missing we put a stop to the delivery of that consignment and sent a replacement within 2 days. If you give us an incorrect address/postcode or missing parts to an address and the parcel is delayed or goes missing, Everlasting Castings will not be held responsible. The alphabetical letters in a postcode must be in uppercase as this is the format required by all of our couriers. We have our sender address on every parcel so a parcel is likely to be returned to us rather than disappear! Please ensure that if the Delivery Address is different to the invoice/registered bank card address that you actually fill in the Delivery address boxes at checkout.
