Our gallery is based in Southend on Sea, Essex. We have been operating out of these premises since 1979, although we have extended up, down and out to accommodate our workshops. Our large premises mean we keep all framing materials in stock allowing us to offer a fast and professional framing service.
See our framing gallery for pictures and ideas for specialist framing services. From photos, prints and cross-stitches or tapestries to medals and even a replica Olympic torch, we can frame almost anything. All framing work is completed on the premises and we are members of the Fine Art Trade Guild.
We keep extensive ranges of moulding and mountboard in stock and are happy to supply home framers with single lengths, sheets and pieces. We also have huge stocks of ready made frames and mounts in our shop.
We are happy to reduce, reuse and recycle. If you like that picture but the frame looks dated, no problem, change the frame and we can reuse all your other materials. Got a frame in the loft and a new photo? We can cut a mount to make it fit. No job too small.
We specialise in conservation framing and keep acid free papers and boards and a range of Tru-Vue Museum Quality conservation glass in stock.
Our large workshops and huge stocks mean we are able to offer trade framing to schools, hospitals, hotels, museums and businesses. We have also provided framing services for a number of art and photography exhibitions.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any framing enquiries.
We have a large collection of limited edition prints in stock. From traditional artists such as David Shepherd and Sturgeon to contemporary collections by Henderson Cisz, Sarah Jane Szikora and Doug Hyde.
We are stockists for limited edition prints from DeMontfort Fine Art, Collier & Dobson, Portman Gallery, Washington Green and Solomon & Whitehead among others. We have been collecting and selling limited edition prints for over 30 years and have a number of rare and sought after items. We can also trace and order prints that are not listed here.
We offer a competitively priced framing service for sporting memorabilia such as shirts, bats, balls and medals.
We are happy to give discounts on memorabilia and framing services for charity auctions.
We stock a large range of art and craft materials from paints and papers to Hama beads, cardmaking and decoupage. We are in the process of creating a new art and craft website listing our products. Please click here to visit.
