Framed Prints

We offer a full framing and digital mount cutting service for all artwork and mirrors.

However the benefit of digital printing means that we can print any image, of any size onto paper which can then be framed in any style. This means we can now harmonise a set a prints of all different sizes and colours by scanning, resizing and re-colouring them to match up exactly.

We now provide framed artwork for nearly every project undertaken, and just a few unusual ones are shown opposite, but please visit our projects page to see more examples.We now provide framed artwork for nearly every project undertaken, and just a few unusual ones are shown opposite, but please visit our projects page to see more examples.

Framed Mirrors

Framed mirrors are a great tool for interior designers, bringing light and depth into a room and reflecting other focal points to enhance the entire design and maximise space.

Whether creating functional space fillers in awkward alcoves or statement pieces of decoration for a real wow factor, with the benefit of our bespoke framing service, we can produce framed mirrors in a wealth of shapes, sizes and styles.

See the following projects for examples, Chateau Impney, Droitwich (opposite); Holiday Inn, Huntingdon;Holiday Inn, Camden Lock and Down Hall Country House Hotel

Tray Frame

Tray Frames are most commonly used to frame a canvas print or drymounted artwork. A simple and stylish way of framing an image they instantly create an elegantly defined object that really adds strength to the artwork.

Tray frames have no glass and the canvas or artwork literally sits in a "tray" using a special type of moulding and often the face of the frame is very thin to maintain a minimalist feel. The canvas or print is set back slightly below the face of the frame to prevent damage and the sides are hidden behind the walls of the frame concealing any untidy edges.

The overall look is of a beautiful, clean-cut piece of art and is a great way to display large scale artwork without the expense of specialist glazing.

Framing Specialities

We always like a challenge so when asked to create different kinds of framing we’re always happy to oblige.

A recent project was at the Strand Palace Hotel in the Cocktail Bar. The client wanted to make a feature of the shelving area behind the bar so we were asked to make a huge ornate gold frame to enclose the whole area. This required extreme precision to the millimetre to ensure that glasses and bottles could still be removed easily from within the frame.

One very simple method we used for the public areas in a few Premier Inns was to create large black and white canvas prints of local views and hang on the wall with separate slightly larger frames attached to the wall around it – thus giving the effect of tray frames, but far less expensive – see Premier Inn, Stratford upon Avon.

The same idea was then used for the Comfort Inn, Victoria but with a smaller special shape frame.
