Please let me introduce myself. First I am a professional framer who trades direct from a small workshop. A very close second is the fact that I am a serious collector of images. Not having a shop means my overheads are low and the price of my work is more than competitive, as you expect. Only quality conservation materials and techniques are employed, protecting your art but at a price lower than standard framing in the high-street.
Why use a professional framer?
If you care for the piece you want framed then so do I. Only conservation materials and techniques are used. This means everything is lined to protect from damp, sealed to protect from contaminants and all fixings, backings and mounts are acid free, preventing outgassing (chemical releases that discolour artwork and deteriorates fibres). Mounting a picture also keep your art away from wildly fluctuating glass temperatures, assists air circulation and prevents condensation and mould forming. To be clear, all my work is reversible, glues are never used and no art is ever ‘stuck down’.
Tastes differ and depending on the frame you choose so does the price. I only ever use wood frames. The prices below are but an example. Choose from the many frames in stock for even better prices.
A4 (28 x 22 cm) Add an equal 5cm mountboard border; overall size – 38 x 32cm = £30
A3 (42 x 30 cm) Add an equal 5cm mountboard border; overall size – 52 x 40cm = £38
A2 (60 x 42 cm) Add an equal 8cm mountboard border; overall size – 76 x 58cm = £50
A1 (84 x 60 cm) Add an equal 10cm mountboard border; overall size – 104 x 80cm = £75
The price includes acid-free liners, hooks, mirror plates or D rings plus chord, backing tape, moisture control backboard (not MDF) and of course the glass. Oh and if you wish I shall gift wrap it at no extra cost.
Come have a look – Workshop open to all visitors, bring your art and discuss your requirements over a coffee. And dont forget I work ‘Artist Hours’. Just give us a call to say when it suits you.
