Expert Picture Framing Services in Southend on Sea

We have been trading as Strand Gallery for over 40 years in 2021.

With over 45 years of experience in picture framing, we can offer you expert advice and quality craftmanship when framing your art. We have been framing pictures in Southend on Sea since 1979. From photos, prints and needle work to medals and even a replica Olympic torch, we can frame almost anything. Every item of framing is unique so to get the right look for your artwork you need to come in and try our mouldings and mounts around your artwork. We are happy to advise you and quotes are always given before commencement of work.

All framing work is completed on the premises. Have a look at our Facebook Photo Album for pictures and ideas of specialist framing services. 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 have workshop space to keep all framing materials in stock allowing us to offer a fast and professional framing service. We keep extensive ranges of moulding and mount board in stock or if you can't find what you're looking for in stock then we have access to a wider range from our suppliers catalogues.

We specialise in conservation framing and keep Conservation Grade materials in stock including a range of Conservation glass to protect artwork.

Our large workshops and range of in stock supplies enable us to offer trade discounts to schools, hospitals, hotels, museums and businesses. We have worked with Portsmouth Dockyard, Debenhams, Sparks Charity and McDonalds on framing projects. We specialise in memorabilia framing and have worked with a number of charities to frame auction items. We have provided framing services for a number of art and photography exhibitions from the Beecroft Gallery to the OXO Tower. We are VAT registered.

We are happy to supply home framers with single lengths of moulding, sheets and pieces of clear or non-reflective glass cut to size, mdf and mount board. All work is completed on the premises so we can sell you anything we use for picture framing, from wedges and tacks to tapes and cord.

We have a wide range of ready made photo frames and standard sized mounts available in the gallery. If you just need a new mount or new glass then we are happy to help.

Art in the Gallery

We have a large range of original art, pictures, prints and limited editions available. Most of the limited editions and original art are shown on the website but it's always worth a visit to have a look round. You can get a better idea of size and colour in person.

Many of our prints are also available in our ebay store.
