Picture Framing Services
The framing workshops immediately adjoin the showroom where over 250 differing styles of wooden mouldings are held in stock. The styles, colours and specifications of such an extensive range of mouldings has been specifically chosen to meet most needs. However, established links with picture frame manufacturers throughout the UK can significantly increase the availability and can be ordered on request.
To enable customers endless combinations, over 150 shades of mountboard are held in stock. These include various mountboard thicknesses in the lighter tones including those specifically manufactured to meet conservation and museum standards. Modern hand-operated mount cutting machines ensure single, double, triple or multi-aperture bevelled mounts can be cut accurately and precisely for each bespoke framing order.
The increased popularity of speciality glass with greater clarity, anti-reflection benefits and built-in UV protection has been significantly addressed by Picturecraft and now matches their stockholding of standard float glass. An additional service is to provide bespoke cut-to-size silvered sheet or bevelled mirrors which are available in recognised standard sizes.
The complexities and irreversible process of dry-mounting and heat-sealing is a subject demanding of very careful consideration. A full and detailed insight into the procedure will be provided to customers whenever the question arises where there is a need to bond an item onto a high quality board before being framed.
An incredibly comprehensive range of sundries, accessories and fittings are available with advice and guidance to help resolve all the necessities for D.I.Y. framing projects and to successfully overcome any picture hanging issues. The interconnecting artists’ material showroom is also a valuable resource to obtain paints and materials for touching in frames.
A fine collection of ‘off-the-shelf’ picture frames are available in differing colours and styles in both imperial and metric sizes. These prove extremely cost effective solutions to professionally address last-minute framing projects. Furthermore, Picturecraft of Holt uses discontinued lines and random offcuts of moulding to make one-off frames with glass and MDF backing boards which are incredibly popular for their diversity.
Whether it is the jaws of a white shark, a collection of antique locks or a fine set of military medals… the opportunity to provide a lasting and fitting solution is a particular speciality for Picturecraft of Holt. It is this particular field of expertise where decades of experience and a deep understanding of design, suitability, longevity and strength ensures a fitting, sympathetic and aesthetically individual result.
A bespoke service is available where ornate and swept frames can be ordered in styles, sizes, colours and finishes to exacting specifications. Authentic period designs include Victorian, Regency and Neo Classical where frame widths and ornamentation are determined to address every imaginable situation… including more modern and contemporary styles associated with Art Deco.
