Canvas art framing
With over 15 years of experience in framing canvas art we specialise in framing original and fine art for private use and exhibitions.
We use both standard (18 mm) and "gallery" (38 mm) stretcher bars, finished with a variety of frames tailor made for canvas display: modern and clean, traditional and ornate, tray frames and floating frames, all from the best and latest materials in the market.
Original print and photography framing
The most important aspect in framing an original print is making it safe and preserved whilst enhancing the final look into an illusion of one creation.
We only use conservation grade/acid free board materials and tapes in dozens of colours, laser cut to any shape and size or “float” mounting.
In terms of glazing, the best glass option for reflection-free and neutral viewing is the Artglass. Anti reflective coating incorporating a 70% UV filter to protect valuable artwork from fading over time, guarantees unrivalled consistency, durability and quality.
Watercolour and pastel drawings
Painted on paper, pastel and watercolour drawings tend to bend and wave over time if not treated correctly.
By using conservation grade/acid free board materials and tapes we make sure to minimise moisture from reaching the framed piece.
Paper drawing also tend to fade if not protected by the right glass. Artglass has an anti reflective coating incorporating a 70% UV filter to protect valuable artwork from fading over time and is also the best option for reflection-free and neutral viewing, guarantees unrivalled consistency, durability and quality.

Alon did a wonderful job with my print, it was in a sorry state! He re-mounted, re-glazed and re-framed it, now it looks wonderful! Very professional and reasonable price. I'm so happy.
