Bespoke Picture Framing


"A good picture deserves a good frame, 
a bad picture needs one"

The Art of Framing


When framing a piece of work , there are many factors to consider. At Merchant Gate Gallery our in-house professional will guide you through these choices with a free consultation to detemine what is best for you. 

The proportions, colours and textures in the artwork should be reflected in the frame; in addition to possibly complimenting features in the location that the framed piece is going to be hung. We will work together to find the best possible solution, and with our many hundreds of choices of frame styles , we have something to suit all requirements and budgets.

Conservation Framing (acid-free) is essential to preserve the artwork ; and we also offer specialist glass(UV protect) as an option to further protect from deterioration. Conservation(white-core) mountboard and backing is used as standard on all our framing .
