One of the first on the internet offering custom cut mounts for delivery in the UK. Our framing shop and web sites make it easy for customers to buy framing and mounts, and you will find our impressive choice of board and frame mouldings in the shop, plus pictures and prints, and friendly, helpful staff! We can do most framing jobs. All work is done in our own workshops.
We have customers all over the UK, local artists, museums, resellers and of course our valued local customers who come in our high street shop. Online customers from all walks of life throughout the country as well as household name customers and institutions, our customers also include photographers, artists, and resellers as well as people ordering individual frames and mounts who appreciate our good service and value. Our online mount cutting and online framing is popular with discerning all over the UK, and most web site items can also be ordered by telephone.

We frame for retail customers, artists and galleries throughout the UK. We are not a framing-factory, more like a high street local framers on the internet.

We complete and send orders every day of the working week by FedEx and Royal Mail.
We have full time picture framers and fully equipped workshops. Whether you are an artist exhibiting, or a customer awaiting a frame, we want you to feel that your art is in safe hands. We use top quality industry standard equipment, which is frequently maintained and our staff have considerable framing experience between them, making 1,000s of bespoke frames per year plus bulk orders for artists/galleries and the trade.
Many of our frame mouldings and finishes are unique, many made specially for us. Some hand finished, polished and limed finishes are exclusive and not available anywhere else.
