MELBURY HILL Raising money to help the Dorset Wildlife Trust One of our long-time and favourite customers, Phyllis Wolff, recently presented to us a proposition that I felt we could not refuse. Phyllis is a Dorset based artist, exhibiting her landscape paintings...
Every pictureframe we make starts life as a tree .... ... and we take that as seriously as the art within WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE FSC® Certified What difference does it make to you whether your picture frames (and their mounts, any printing paper, backing back boards...
Moulding: 21O_BDL1_MB-DM A current favourite! Traditional style profile with our unique barndoor© finish and distressed dutch metal leaf. First the frame is made from our shape 21 moulding in obeche and it gets a couple of days for the glue to cure....
Gone are the days when you need to make two trips to the picture framer – the first to place your order and the second to collect it. With our bespoke framing and mounting service you choose your own size frame and mount, in your own time, from the comfort of your own home; not only saving you time and travel, but saving you money too!
Our brand new online frame design and visualisation software gives you a huge choice of mounts and frames. And we’re adding more all the time!!
With our wide format fine art printing service, if you have a photo or other artwork as a digital file, you can simply upload it to our print and frame section and within a few days you’ll have the complete framed picture hanging on your wall.
Our background as framers to many internationally renowned artists, blue chip companies and discerning collectors, gives us the experience to take on the jobs which are way beyond the capabilities of other online framers: we make picture frames in any size and even make custom shaped frames and a huge variety of handmade frames.
We make hand painted as well as spray painted frames as well as other hand finished frames for example gold leaf or other gilded picture frames (white gold, caplain leaf, dutch metal, aluminium etc). We can make fabric covered frames and even picture frames made from recycled pallets!!!
Whether you need a frame for an oil painting, a watercolour, a pastel or a photograph, we can provide you with a top quality bespoke picture frame, made to your exact specifications, and we will deliver it direct to your door! If you are only looking for a picture mount or perhaps many mounts, double mounts or even triple mounts, we are happy to help with that too.
We specialise in big picture frames and have experience in making very large custom frames complete with mounts and glazing. Just recently: we have framed a photograph with a mount and an acrylic glaze 4.5 metres x 1.5 metres; we have provided a famous London theatre with an ornate gold frame measuring 15ft x 12ft, and we have mounted glazed and framed a World War Two Union Jack Flag measuring over 6ft x 10ft.
Where a ready made frame is appropriate, we offer a stylish range of plain wood frames, ornate frames, painted frames, frames with multi aperture mounts in a range of sizes. All of the frames mounts are manufactured in our Dorset picture framing workshops and are unique to us.
Message from Hope Elletson
- Hope Elletson,
Welcome to the brand new PictureFrames website!!
The “soft launch” of our new site and completely new on-line printing and framing studio on Monday the 15th May 2017 marks the culmination of over two years work – but it’s only the beginning…..
My aim with the website is to replicate as closely as possible the creativity and personal service that we offer to our local customers and via our weekly van delivery service to London.
The site is designed to be a tool to help choose the best frame design and to aid communication with our customers. Our phone number and contact details are on every page so please feel free to get in touch with any questions.
Over the coming months we will be constantly adding new frames, mounts and content to help get the best out of the website. Many thanks for visiting, please keep coming…..
What is the FSC® and how does it help?
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is the most rigorous body involved in Timber Certification, and the only one with Global reach.
Very few of the generally available picture framing materials in the UK are subject to any certification at all, and only a tiny percentage are FSC certified. For this reason, over 90% of the picture frame moulding at PictureFrames.co.uk are milled especially for us from Plain Timber and we then hand finish the frames in our Dorset Workshops.
PictureFrames is currently the only FSC® cetified bespoke printing and framing company in the world. Read more here…
