All picture framing is carried out on the premises and is supervised by the owner Ian Maguire, who has nearly 20 years of framing experience.
Our aim is always to provide good value, but we are not prepared to compromise on quality. We use the best quality conservation mounting board as standard, together with excellent quality wood and aluminium frames and the best quality glass. In fact we have over 500 samples of frames on the wall for you to look at – much easier than looking at photographs in a catalogue!
Seasons is a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild (FATG) and Ian is a Guild Commended Framer (GCF).
Every item we receive for framing is treated with care. Our aim is to both enhance the viewing of the artwork, and also ensure that the process of framing does not damage the artwork in any way. The techniques we use aren't necessarily the quickest, but are the best for your artwork in the long term.
To help you to decide how to frame your artwork we have a visualisation system where we can show a mock up of various options on the screen.
We aim to complete all framing jobs within one week. If the framing is urgent then we will try to complete it within two days, or possibly overnight.
Please see our sections on what we can frame and framing options.
For further information on the steps we take to preserve your artwork or object for the future, please see our section on conservation framing.
We do provide on-the-spot free quotations for items brought into the shop. Providing quotations for items we haven't seen can be a bit hit and miss, but if you are unable to pop in and would like an e-mail quote please go to this section, and we will do our best.
