"One of the best things about running a bespoke framing company is the variety of work that we get. We always look forward to each new day, wondering what our next customer will bring us!" - Hannah
A beautiful mermaid cross stitch with beads. This fabric art came in stitched to a loose piece of fabric. It needed to be tightly stretched around a piece of foam board before we could begin framing. We used two layers of mount, using two different colours to draw out the major tones in the artwork. Finally, a golden frame to lift the overall visual effect. We think it looks great!

We have just finished building this giant, 6 ft x 4.1/2 ft original 1937 French bike ad poster frame. It was so large, it only just fit in the shop to take this photo!
1836 King's Theatre Poster
We had to remove this original 1836 King's Theatre poster from a nasty acidic mount before it was irreversibly damaged from being sellotaped by bodge framers. It's an extremely delicate job, as the paper is so brittle now, sneeze and it will flake away. We rectified the issue by using a pH neutral mount board and UV resistant glass. To finish things off, it now has a pretty new frame and a very happy customer!
"I framed my drawing of a buzzard to compliment the image. I used an inner mount that reflected the colour of the ink that was used. A top mount was applied to match the paper the artwork was drawn on. I used a rustic timber frame because I thought it was appropriate for the subject matter, as it looks very natural" - Shane
World War 2 medals
We were asked to frame a collection of WW2 medals alongside a campaign history document and the name of the soldier. We attached the medals very carefully with micro tacks, which keeps them secure but also causes no damage to the ribbons.
This is a ceramic memorial poppy from the Tower of London art installation. The poppies from the installation went on sale to the public after the display, and were very desirable. There were nearly 900,000 of them, all hand made, and they sold out very quickly. Our customer was very happy to have purchased one considering the demand, and needed it protected, but also wanted it as a feature piece in her home. So the brief was to frame it in an elegant but robust manner. We love the result and hope you do too!You can read more about this here: Memorial Poppy frame
Native American wood carvings
Our customer wanted their authentic Native American wood carvings displayed in such a way that they could be removed and rearranged at any time. We made small hooks fixed into the backing mount, which the leather loops on the back of each carving could be hung upon.
Framing the impossible
This customer arrived at our shop and had been previously told by a well respected framers that this artwork could not be stretched around a stretcher bar frame, due to its extremely elasticated nature. We like a challenge, so with a great deal of painstaking perseverance, we managed to prove them wrong, and got it to work!
