So much more than just Picture Framing!
Whatever your preference, we stock the widest possible range of picture mouldings and frames, together with mounts and mounting board, fine art prints, limited editions, etchings and engravings, covering every conceivable subject. We produce bespoke sized and framed mirrors for all requirements, and offer specialist ‘over-mantle’ styles for either modern or period furnishings. Visitors can see a range of ideas for displaying their own memorabilia, and will also be able to discuss various ways in which things could be presented to advantage. Home visits and consultations can be undertaken as required.

Please call in to see us. We’ll be pleased to help you.


We offer the most comprehensive mounting and framing services to be found anywhere.

We can supply a single item or (depending upon its nature), a large quantity to the same specification. Much of the creative work that we provide is unique!
We readily handle many types of three-dimensional objects that others cannot. These may include items such as clothing, medals, taxidermy, musical instruments, documents and scrolls, together with comprehensive personalised or themed memorabilia displays of all kinds. Budgets are adaptable to individual requirements and, where applicable, we pride ourselves in executing work to Museum Standards, using a variety of conservation materials and techniques.

Business to Business

In conjunction with our traditional picture framing and art presentation services, our specialised computer-controlled equipment embraces 21st Century cutting edge technology for maximum precision and efficiency.

As a valuable adjunct to picture framing applications, these high-tech facilities enable individuals and businesses to obtain or provide professionally mounted or laminated charts, maps, diagrams, layouts, advertisements and other graphics for a whole variety of marketing or display purposes.

Customized facilities coupled with unique expertise, enable a whole variety of results to be achieved, that cannot be seen elsewhere! This can also include the incorporation of three-dimensional elements into otherwise ordinary graphics, for maximum, yet tasteful impact.

Such high-tech service allows architects, planners, developers, interior designers, schools, universities, hospitals, – and indeed any kind of retail outlet, to make full visual use of framed or unframed graphics and customised images, in suitably creative ways.

UK and European Distribution

We are the sole importers and distributors of world-renowned ‘Greenwich Workshop’ limited editions to the retail market, in addition to the Fine Art, Framing, and Interior Design trades throughout the UK and Europe.

Greenwich Workshop, from Connecticut in the USA, has long held pride of place for the superlative quality of its fine art editions, with a range of subject matter from modern/abstract to classical and photo-realistic art.  Many items are suitable for corporate decor, with ‘themed’ styles and subjects to grace the walls of any up-market office location.

Following years of intermittent availability in the UK it’s now possible to purchase ALL of these wonderful Greenwich Workshop pictures directly from ourselves, with payment made in £ Sterling.

Each item is available either in loose format for gallery mounting and framing, or pre-mounted (to ‘conservation standards’), or completely framed and ready to hang!

Never before has this superb collection of art been made available with so many options for individual presentation.
