At Framed By You we are passionate about our framing. With over 40 years of experience between us we can solve all your framing needs – no matter whether you are looking for a professional custom framing service or the opportunity to learn to frame yourself. Whatever you need to have framed, even if it’s a ‘challenge’, we have the experience and expertise to help, on time and on budget. From prints and pictures to textiles and tapestries, Framed By You can put you in the picture.


A good picture framing job starts with good advice and ends with good workmanship. A lot of people feel intimidated at the prospect of how to frame their artwork or object. With helpful professional guidance this process can be made easy and will result in a very successful outcome. We are happy to spend time with you asking all the right questions and giving expert advice to make sure that the suggestions we make will suit your sense of style in your home or office, as well as complimenting your artwork.


Looking great is just part of the story. Conservation framing refers to the specific methods and materials we use to protect and preserve the framed artwork from damage and deterioration. We’re believers in ‘If you love it, look after it.’


Do you have beautiful original artworks or prints to hang in your workspace? Employee awards, certificates or a fantastic all-staff photo to be framed — at Framed by You we’ll do them justice and add an artistic touch to your work environment.


Canvas stretching is an age-old method of presenting images on canvas that has become very popular in the digital age. These can be your own photos, prints of a favourite professional photo, or an artist’s reproduction.


People often wonder how picture framing is done, and with some straight forward instruction together with access to professional equipment it can be easily achieved. Framing is fun and challenging as a hobby, and it can save a lot of money. It is a great option for budding photographers and artists in particular, but there are many different reasons for framing.

We offer a comprehensive framing course for beginners and experience is not necessary.

The classes provide:

  • easy-to-follow instructions and comprehensive notes
  • a fully-equipped workshop with the latest equipment
  • a wide range of stock
  • helpful staff to advise you on frames and colours for a professional finish


When you’ve completed the course you’re welcome to use our facilities during the business hours.
