We frame originals, prints, photos, oils, tapestries and cross stitches, embroideries, canvas's, etchings and memorabilia.

We also stock a wide selection of readymade frames and offer a complete service, so if you just wish to purchase a mount, a piece of glass or a length of moulding, we are happy to oblige.

We are members of The Fine Art Trade Guild and follow the Guild Code of Ethics.

Framing

THE FIVE LEVELS OF FRAMING

1. Minimum Level

To provide a basic frame at minimum cost; price overrides visual appearance and quality.

2. Budget Level

To provide a visually acceptable frame at a budget price. No pretence is made to protect the artwork or its long-term visual appearance.

3. Commended Level

To visally enhance artwork and offer a moderate level of protection from airborne pollution and handling for around five years in normal conditions.

4. Conservation Level

To visually enhance artwork and offer a high level of protection from physical and mechanical damage, airborne pollution and acids generated by framing materials, for approximately 20 years, under normal conditions. Processes must be reversible.

5. Museum (purist) Level

To visually enhance the artwork and offer the ultimate level of protection from physical and mechanical damage, airborne pollution and acids from framing materials for up to 35 years in normal conditions. Suitable for Museum-quality works and artwork that is to be preserved for future generations, including high value items and artwork of potential or historical value. Processes must be fully reversible.
