Framed for good - Caring for your framed art

As a Fine Art Trade Guild Certified Framer I am well qualified and happy to help in selecting the best frame for your artwork.

The Guild has produced a brief guide to caring for your framed art and a copy is below. Printed copies are available from my studio.

Framed for good - Caring for your framed art

Photo enhancement

I was recently instructed to help a customer reframe some sentimental photographs. Unfortunately they had suffered over time and had bleached out. A local design and printing firm were able to greatly enhance the photos which were then reframed in a more delicate frame with a rather heavy frame being replaced with an acrylic block display (two acrylic blocks that are held together with magnets).

Acrylic bubbles



An alternative to the box frame for 3D objects and memorabilia.

An acrylic bubble can be placed over the objects and any suitable frame added.  UV protective acrylic is available also to safeguard precious items from harmful light.
