Golden Opportunity


Having built up an exceptionally well regarded and successful gallery and framing business, Jenny & Alan Milverton are putting their business up for sale: M F Frames Ltd operates from premises on St Helen’s Street in Ipswich, Suffolk. If you are interested in finding out more about the business sale, please contact Jenny or Alan on 01473 225544, or via email info@mfframes.co.uk.


Jenny & Alan have made the decision finally to hand on the baton, because;

“… a small house in Italy beckons! And we are coming up to retirement age and want to do certain things before we keel over.”


Even if you are not ready to take over a business, you will be inspired to find out how the Milvertons, and M F Frames Ltd, started: read Where Did It all Begin?

Mountboard Madness


DIYframing offers a range of over 20 shades of white mount board, within our total palette of 70 colours / shades. This year, especially for Focus on Imaging 2010, we can give you access to the full range, with a great mount board package. Make your choice from colour charts featuring all 70 shades of white-core board, and you will be able to create a “pick ‘n mix” order of twenty, A1 mount boards for just £45.00 (white-core). These will be sent to your chosen delivery address, carriage free. That works out at just £2.25 per sheet and no struggling around the stands with a large pile of mount board!

Framing Kit Under £400


Price is always an issue when deciding whether to venture into doing your own framing. That and finding what you need. To simplify matters and keep costs down, we have come up with a home framing pack for under £400, again exclusive to purchases at Focus on Imaging 2010. There’s nothing basic in this kit though! It provides great quality tools and materials for all parts of picture frame construction and you will be saving in the order of £65.


To help whet your appetite and get you organised, you can download an advance flyer (PDF) of the framing kit on offer. Click: Framing Kit £399

New At Focus


An exciting feature of our visit to Focus On Imaging 2010 is that we are able to demonstrate a number of new tools from Logan Graphic Products Ltd.  Some of you will have read about the new kit in our February newsletter, under the headline: Three of the Best From Logan.  Why not come and a look at what these have to offer?

If (especially after the show) you are inspired to find out how to do your own picture framing, here are links to our next batch of venues.  Immediately after Focus on Imaging, we travel up to Newcastle Upon Tyne and then Brighton: book now - A FEW PLACES LEFT ON EACH OF THOSE TWO.  April sees our special jaunt to Belfast, which includes the Stitch & Creative Arts show. Finally there's a return to Maidstone at the end of the month.


For those looking to take things further, here's a reminder that we do have some special courses coming up very soon in Beaconsfield. There are a few places remaining so now is the time to have a look at what's on offer: Business Development Week 20th – 26th March – as well as the two basic days, training modules are; Business Day 1; 3D Framing; Conservation Framing; Framing Fabrics; Business Day 2. Remember, these can be booked as individual elements
