We’re still here!

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

We’ve had some workshop re-arranging and been incredibly busy over the last year so unfortunately keeping this website up to date has been somewhat non existent!  This is just to say despite neglecting our web profile and hanging out with local celebrities we’re here, open, business as usual and very busy, so please call or email for any framing needs and we’ll be happy to help. We do tweet and Facebook a bit more regularly so  follow us for more up to date information and news.

Robbie Grabarz, Olympic Bronze medalist

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Occasiomaly we get some celebraties and well known artists through our door but this was an absolute treat after we’d somewhat caught olympic fever at the framers during the games. Robbie Grabarz, olympic high jump bronze medalist bought his vest he was wearing when he won the medal to get framed, what an honour and he seemed pretty pleased with our handy work!

1972 Munich Olympic posters

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Leading up the the London 2012 Olympics we started collecting these great Munich ’72 original posters, heralded as design classics by German designer  Otl Aicher. We had a mini exhibition of these over the duration of London 2012 games, along with some of this years Artist commission poster series. We still have a selection of these original posters for sale in the Gallery.

 

Faile

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

 

We get a lot of street art prints through our doors for framing, being friends of a few well known street artists and having framed for folks like Lazarides gallery, Scrawl Collective, Stolen Space Gallery, Fame and Pictures on Walls we have a good reputation for framing these prints. These are a couple of Faile prints we had come through a while back, love their work, check out boneyard project they were recently involved with.

Bus Blinds

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

 

We got hold of these original old Birmingham Bus Blinds for the galley, noticed they had some in Selfridges for twice as much as we charge! We have a selection of destinations available, pop into the gallery and ask if you’re interested.

Examples

Here’s a couple of photos of some populer finishes we are often asked for, a stained wood and a coloured ornate, both of which are stained, waxed or coloured by hand in house, we can match almost any colour or wood finish.

Found this old picture of a Victorian Framing Workshop, to anyone who’s visited our workshop this might look familiar…

The Zoo

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011


We just framed this rather sweet set of prints by Bold&Noble for a showcase at Twycross Zoo, who are planning on opening a contemporary gallery space. Sounds like a great idea and hopefully a really interesting upcoming program of exhibitions, it would be easy to go pretty obvious with a zoo gallery but if these prints are anything to go by it has potential to be a really interesting space.

New Prints!

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

New year, new VAT! We’ve been busy framing lots of new stock for the gallery, we’ve started to invest in some nice classic and vintage prints to compliment the illustration we’ve been promoting over the years. These are all a little more affordable than some of the limited prints we regularly stock so you can still get some great pieces on your wall for your budget in this present economy. We’ve got some vintage adverts, B-movie posters, propaganda posters, music/rock prints as well as a few classic pop art and japanese woodblock illustration prints to name a few.
