We are not limited to the usual pictures on paper and canvas, watercolours, oils, photographs, posters and prints but can also frame a wide range of fabrics, objects, mementos and collections.
The gallery below is a small sample of the varied items we have framed over the years, other specific areas of framing; sports, shirts, military and services are covered on following pages.

These examples try to give some idea of the range of framing that we undertake.
Fancy, decorative framing is not always required or appropriate. Even for the simplest framing, it is still essential to make the right choice of mount - colour, size, proportion and shape and frame - material, colour, size, shape, texture and grain.
We want to make every piece we frame look its best from a child's first picture to a Damien Hurst original.
These are two souvenirs from a holiday in Thailand. They are stitched to the backing mount and spacers are hidden under the top mount to give depth and keep the glass off the puppets.
Two programs mounted together, showing inside and signed cover. They are float mounted using an encapsulation technique for the ultimate in preservation.
Special handling was needed as this was made of parchment and not paper. The seals are wax in brass containers 30mm deep and have been sunk into the mount.
The mount for this embroidery is decorated with hearts cut from and into the mountboard. The shape of the hearts was taken directly from the embroidery.
A collection of bell pushes from various routemaster buses. A boxframe was needed on the back of the aluminium frame as the pushes still had their mechanisms fitted.
A light box was fitted behind the glass slides so they could be illuminated as required. This shows the light on. The decorative mount was hand cut before we had a computerised cutter.
