Our Picture Framing Service
John & Penny Richardson from Exton in Rutland source a large supply of good quality picture frames including, oak, ash, pine, barefaced obeche and ramin, for hand stained & painted frames.
We also source a large selection of finished frames, including gold & silver frames, black & white frames, oval & circular frames & ornate picture frames etc...
We use the most reputable picture frame manufacturers in the UK, & all our raw wood mouldings are hand crafted and hand finished by ourselves.
All frames supplied by us are mitred using the famous Morso Mitre Guillotine Cutting Machine, then joined from underneath using a precision underpinner.
We use Daler Rowney white core & conservation mount boards that are acid free. Black core boards are also available.
We have state of the art mount cutters from Fletcher and Keencut, giving you the option of rectangular, square, oval and circular bevel edged mount apertures.
We supply excellent 2mm picture float glass in any size up to 36″ x 48″ that is suitable for picture framing.
As standard practice with our bespoke picture framing service, we always seal 2mm standard picture glass to the frame, to help KEEP OUT those annoying thrip flies and any atmospheric pollutions.
We also supply 2mm Diffused Picture Glass acid etched to give a non glare, diffused finish.
This glazing is not suitable for deep box framing or multi layered mounts over 3mm.
3mm Artshield Plastic Glazing is also available. This is an acrylic abrasion resistant plastic. It is very difficult to scratch and able to withstand greater impact than glass and we use this excellent glazing to send framed picture abroad. We have also used this glazing on large pictures in public places and as a security glazing for box frames holding antique items in public offices.
As a further option, we also offer conservation glazing like Tru Vue clear preservation glazing that protects your artwork from at least 93% of UV light & Schott Mirogard Museum Specialist Glass.
