A step by step guide on how to have your picture framed

Life can be complicated enough so we believe in making the process as straight-forward as possible.  It doesn’t matter whether you are having a certificate framed or a rugby jersey, the steps you need to follow are exactly the same.  

how to frame a picture STEP ONE

Come and see us!  Don’t worry if you’ve no idea what to do, we’re here to help.  If your artwork is being re-framed we will take it out of the old frame while you wait.  This makes it much easier to look at new options.  We can tell you about the best ways to protect your artwork using conservation framing methods and materials.


What style of framing do you like?  You’ll be able to look at our range of frames and the artworks on our walls. This will help you work out the look you want.  We have a great range of contemporary frames as well as beautiful ornates and more natural woods.  Some of our recent framing projects may give you a starting point.


What’s your budget?  Framing can be economical and it can be extravagant.  We’ll be able to tell you how much different options will cost.  The size of your artwork, the quality of the materials used and the technical expertise required are all factors. We’ll give you an exact price, but you don’t need to pay until you collect the work.


Time Scale – we can frame a picture within a day if you are in a rush, but we generally have a two week turn-around time.
