Bespoke picture framing emphasising design and conservation

Expert qualified framers like us are really hard to find. At Handmade Framing and Gallery we know that good framing is not just about great design, it’s about conservation. We know that standard high street framing and off the shelf frames damage valuable or sentimentally important artwork.


Whatever you would like framed, it’s crucial to consider how important the item is to you and what is most important: long-term protection, visual enhancement or minimum cost.


Below, you'll find an explanation of the different levels of framing and a recommendation of which is most suitable for your piece:
