Established in Derby in 1989 by husband and wife team John and Vera, we set out from the start to give our customers the very best quality of framing at an affordable price.

To promote our high standard of framing, we joined the FINE ART TRADE GUILD, who were then just establishing national standards for picture framing and examination for framing. In 1996 John sat and passed their exam to become the first Guild Commended Framer in Derbyshire. A few years later Kelly also proudly passed her exam, making Kelly and John the most qualified framing shop in Derby and the only qualified family team!

Around the year 2000, based on demand we invested in a large format printer. Allowing us to offer Giclee-block-canvas-printGiclee (Professional quality) Canvas printing and a range of printing services. The expansion is picture framing services compelled us to move to our current location on Cathedral Road in the prestigious Cathedral Quarter of Derby.

We are extremely proud of the reputation we have built over the years, which has been achieved by listening to our customer requirements and taking as much time as is required to ensure the highest level of presentation and preservation.

Through this website, we hope to give you insight into what framing is about, but to experience the extraordinary personal, friendly service, please visit our shop.
