Visit Derbyshire's Leading Picture Frames today
We are bespoke Framers. Flair, imaginative boldness, the ability to select just the right frame, control of all stages of the framing process, and our use of only the best materials means your artwork is framed by us to perfection. Your frame will be beautifully handmade, durable and, above all, it will complement not only the artwork, but also the space in which it is to hang.
We have refined our choice of materials, along with our suppliers, carefully selecting the highest standard of all elements required in the framing process. We are abreast of changes in the market and innovations in technique, which combine to guarantee a consistent quality in the woods we cut our frames from, and the boards we use to mount and back artwork.
The presentation of artwork is crucial in its overall effect. Our aesthetic understanding in these matters is second-to-none: the practical advice we provide is based on a deep knowledge of interior design, construction, materials and finishing techniques.
In our Gallery we have a wall filled with moulding samples, and a wide range of mountboards to help you select a framing combination.
We begin with advice on mounting, for example a work on paper needs mounting to space it from glass and to give it room, so we would begin with the selection of the correct mounting board and proportions, before moving on to the choice of the frame. On the other hand, an oil on canvas does not need mounting, so we can focus on the frame needed. We would look at profiles, colours and proportion required. We draw up a cutting list each week, and the average waiting time is usually around a week.
We are very happy to frame whatever you require. We have a great deal of experience in framing fabric works, for example, which provide a different sort of challenge, but can also make for some exciting and dramatic results. We are frequently asked to make box frames for 3D pieces.
