 We are happy to provide you with a quote at our shop, workshop or by phone but because of the many variables we are unable to provide a price list on this website.


Choosing a Frame


We give our expert advice and help when choosing your mount and frame. Guidance on the style of framing that will complement your artwork.  We will then calculate the price based on the frame choice, mount, glass type and size. Your frame will then be custom made in our workshop and your artwork carefully fitted. Each frame is hand finished and supplied with the correct hanging fixtures. Your finished piece will be ready to collect appoximately 7-10 days after placing your order.

Conservation Framing


Original artworks, limited edition prints, old photographs and items of age or sentimental value can be framed to conservation standard using techniques and materials that are designed to preserve and protect the artwork for years to come. We offer a range of conservation mount boards which are acid free and will not fade or deteriorate. Conservation or museum glass is used to offer protection from UV light and prevent fading and yellowing.


Mount Cutting


We have over 100 different colours and can offer conservation and museum standard mounts. All our mounts are cut on a Digital Wizard Cutter and cut to order. We can cut single, double, multi apeture mounts and bespoke mounts for weddings etc. 


Dry Mounting


Using the latest Hot Press techniques we offer a dry mounting service for all open edition prints and photographs. This process ensures that your artwork will not 'cockle' within the frame and guarantees the highest standard of presentation. We can also 'laminate' art. works - this process is suitable for photographs and open edition prints only
