Our highly trained framing assistants will help and advise you on choice of frames, mount colours, glass type and any other considerations your artwork needs and then accurately calculate the cost using our computerised pricing programs we then agree a collection date to suit your diary, if you need your framing quickly we can frame while-u-wait as our workshops are on the premises also ensuring the safety of your art – as it never leaves our store.
Do we have a frame to suit your artwork? Yes, we have on stock a range of over 300 styles of frames all of which we make up bespoke to suit your requirement, we also hand finish frames so offering you unlimited choice of colour and finish to suit your home decor or corporate identity. We also pride ourselves in making sure that over 65% of our frame stock sourced is FSC timber from managed woodland sources.
It is important that mount board used on artwork is good quality, here at Speedframe we only stock high quality white core mount board or better (see mounting page) ensuring that when you have selected mounts that suits your pictures from our range of 104 colours your art is presented in a safe conservation friendly state

Our highly trained staff assemble and finish your frames, we then QC the finished item before putting the hanging cord on so all you need to do is chose the wall your artwork will live on.
We are fully aware that artwork needs to be taken care of over time so all our processes and materials take this into consideration.
We have invested in the latest picture framing machinery including computerised CNC mount cutters, automatic twin blade mite saws, computerised frame nailers and wall saws for board cutting thus ensuring complete accuracy in the production of your picture frames or display cases.
We believe in keeping you informed so we email your order when you bring your artwork in and send a PDF showing all the details of what frames you have chosen and then when we have completed your framing we send an email to inform you it is ready for collection, and just in case you misplace the email we will gently remind you after a while it is still here.
