We are passionate about using our specialist knowledge to ensure you enjoy your framed artwork to the fullest. We use quality materials and best practice framing methods to provide you with an excellent finished piece that you will be proud to have in your home. We frame anything from textiles and sports shirts to 3D objects. Take a look at our case studies to find out more. We also do canvas stretching; hand staining; box framing; framing mirrors and mount cutting.

Initial Consultation

We take time to discuss details such as your taste, décor and the mood that you wish to create so that we can advise you on the most appropriate framing approach and offer unusual and innovative ideas. You will be completely safe in our hands! Once we have discussed options with you, we provide quotes to suit your budget so that you can make a fully informed decision.

Framing Options

We have a huge range of frames, from traditional to contemporary, wood to metal. We are delighted to offer Frinton Frames which are individually hand-decorated and hand-finished. Glazing is another important consideration. Our range of glazing options includes 99% UV blocking, Antiglare and Museum glass which displays artwork at its best while preserving it for future generations.

Framing Process

Conservation is at the heart of our framing approach. Acid can attack and damage artwork over time, so we only use acid free components such as Nielsen Bainbridge “Artcare” mount-boards which actively protect your artwork; acid free barrier board and tapes as well as a range of protective glazing.

Quality Assured

When you pick up your framing we un-wrap it and show you the final result. Customer satisfaction is central to the ethos of our business and we always do our utmost to ensure that every client is 100% happy with their finished product.
