Don't Miss This


Our visit to Manchester features our Art & Photo framing weekend (2 days), a Stretching & Framing Canvas Art day and a day exploring Adding Decorative Finishes to Frames. Whilst these can be booked in whatever grouping you choose, as a whole they offer an exceptional picture framing opportunity. Therefore, we are making them into a Summer Special Offer: Buy 3 Days and get the fourth day free! 

That's just £484 for the four modules: a saving of over £193!

For details & booking contact Judy via email or any of the phone options: contacts

Patchings Art, Craft & Design Festival - Nottingham, 9th - 12th June

Two Special Offers - A1 Cutting Mats & Rules


The A1 “self-healing” cutting mat provides the ideal surface on which to cut paper, card etc: the gel core of the mat allows cuts with craft knives through the surface to close. Its size also makes a great “clean surface" on which to assemble framing projects. And at our SPECIAL OFFER price of just £15.00, they provide great value for money. For more detail click A1 Cutting Mat.


Our second special offer is on our stock of 40 cm (16”) aluminium rules.  At just £10.00 (inc. vat) they offer versatility and great quality at this incredibly competitive price. For more detail click Aluminium Rule

Summer Open Day


Here’s a date for your diaries: Summer Open Day, High Wycombe HQ, Saturday 16th July. There will be a whole range of events and special features, including great deals on kit and special offers. We will be hosting a FREE seminar: Slips, Fillets & Decorative Edges. The seminar will be approximately 45 mins long and will run twice during the day: first of all at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm. For more details click: Summer Open Day


Another highlight of the day will be the announcement (at 11.00 am) of the winners of the Children’s Art Competition. This is being run by Sunflower Framing for children in the South Bucks / Wycombe area. Artwork will be exhibited in the All About Framing gallery and be ready for viewing on our Open Day. For full competition details visit this Sunflower Framing link.

Handy Hints - Slips & Fillets

We seem to have had a few inquiries asking about slips, fillets and how they are used. As this area seemed to be generating a bit of interest, we decided to devise a new Handy Hints Sheet. Why not have a look? - Slips & Fillets: Purpose & Applications

NEW UnderPinners


Not so long ago we featured an addition to our underpinner stable: the Alfa 2M (with supports). We now stock two further machines. These two underpinners, from Inmes, combine exceptional value for money with the features you would expect entering the world of professional framing kit.
