Who We Are
Helping You Frame

Our Mission

Upon entering the shop, you will be presented with over 100 frames and mounts to choose from plus a range of glass to suit your needs and budget.

We will then make your frame by hand using a combination of traditional techniques and modern technology. Remember we are GCF qualified so you can be certain ALL our framing meets with the Fine Art Trade Guild standards.

Commended Framer


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!

Continually developing

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.
