massive moving sale!

Monday, November 20th, 2017

As you may have heard i’m moving to a new gallery and workshop here at the Custard Factory in the New Year. So it’s time to clear out the old gallery; spare stock, antique frames, odds and ends, big clearance sale! Starting this Saturday 25th to join in with the Digmas event happening across Custard ground floor. Come grab a bargain!

All new Framers!

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

 

Some news of exciting developments with us here at the Framers. You may have heard the Custard Factory has new owners who are investing both in the building and the wider area. The corner where our workshop is currently set up is getting rather run down and tired and our roof is on its last legs, roof leaks are not the best for a picture framers! So the whole courtyard area is being repaired and re-developed.

This has prompted us to take stock and refine our business, so the current partners are separating the Framers into two companies.

I, Lawrence will continue with The Framers which will be moving in the new year, creating a new bespoke  gallery and workshop in Gibb Street Court yard, continuing The Framers 20 + years legacy at The Custard Factory.  The Framers will close for an extra week over the Christmas holidays to move into the new workshop and gallery, just round the corner from our current workshop, continuing and improving on the quality service and products we’ve developed over the years.

John and Richard are starting afresh and heading to the countryside, setting up as the Framing Studios at Beckets farm, just off the M42, south Birmingham. https://www.theframingstudios.com  for more information.

Please note new opening times starting from November 2017.

In the mean time it’s business as usual, I’m still in the current workshop getting on with all your Christmas orders, and will be open and working up to 23rd December. Watch out for big Christmas moving sale in the gallery as part of Digmas, starting on the 25th November.

Looking forward to the new start in the new year with exciting new projects and events in the gallery as well as new products and services in the workshop, keep an eye out for re-brand and web site update in the pipeline too.

Thank you for your custom and hope to continue offering our quality standard and passion in our work as we move on in the next chapter of our company.

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.

Studio4 Gallery

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

We are constantly getting new stock in the gallery, all sorts of  prints and bits and pieces, we  re-arrange every so often so there’s always something new to discover, a lot of the vintage posters and film posters are very reasonably priced, including frame, art doesn’t have to cost a fortune! Don’t be afraid, we’re not a big scary pretentious art gallery, pop down to Custard Factory for a relaxed mooch.

Lucy McLauchlan

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

 

I could write an S.A. on here about how great Lucy is but I’ll just mention we do a lot of framing for her, amazingly talented local lass, up to all sorts of projects and exhibitions all over the world, she’s represented by POW as well, as if her personal credentials and achievements aren’t enough, Banksy is digging her too! We also have a few of her prints available in Studio 4 gallery.

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.

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.
