We get asked to frame an array of items each and every day, the most common of which is the good old photograph. Whether the photo is 1 day old or 60 years old, we can create a completely bespoke display for you to hang anywhere in your home, in a frame where the print, mount board and picture frame all truly compliment each other.

Autographs / Sports Memorabilia
Having collected autographs for the best part of the last 20 years, we understand how important it is to protect your investment. Autographs can seriously go up in value, it is therefore of the upmost importance that they are treated in the correct way. We have the expertise and knowledge to advise on the differing standards of framing, whether you want simple acid-free mount boards, or museum grade mounts and full UV protective glass, the picture framers behind out counter here in Bolsover, Chesterfield will ensure that your investment is displayed and protected exactly how you want. We also offer a range of display cases for signed footballs, boots and boxing gloves - click here to find out more.
Traditionally, oil paintings on a stretched canvas or canvas board, aren’t framed under any glass. We would always advise against using glass on an original oil, but if its necessary, there is a solution available whereby the paint and glass are separated by using a spacer. Give us a call to discuss your requirements on 01246 731858.
Other Original Art Work
Original art work of any kind should be afforded the correct level of protection. We use acid-free mount boards on every project we carry out. Mount boards aren’t only aesthetically pleasing, they actually serve a very important purpose. A standard mount board is 1.4mm thick. That 1.4mm board which sits in between your original art and the glazing used in the frame, prevents your water colour, pencil drawing, pastel etc from coming into contact with the glass. If your art work is pressed up against the glass, there is an extremely high probability that irreparable damage will be caused over time.
Medals / Tower of London Ceramic Poppies
We have extensive experience in framing medals, and offer a completely bespoke medal display service. If you wish to have a set of medals, your rank slide, a few photographs etc all in the same frame, it isn’t a problem. We can offer you a frame for your medals with a very easily removable back, allowing easy access to your medals for wear or cleaning.
