At Gallery 42, we really do care. Its as simple as that. We love doing what we do, and we love to see things through from conception to the final stages and ultimately, we love to see you're happy with your artwork. Its safe to say we'll look after you and we will spend as much time with you as you need to ensure you are totally happy with the end result.
Nothing leaves our workshop unless we're more than happy with it.
We'll advise you on the best ways to frame, protect, present and conserve your artwork and we take every consideration seriously - from the type of glass (or whether glass is even necessary), to the moulding, to the mount; the tiniest details are all calculated based on your individual needs.
More Options Than You Can Shake a Slip At
We have hundreds upon hundreds of moulding choices and many choices of slips and mounts available. We also produce a great variety of frames and finishes that are totally unique to us; you won't find them anywhere else.
Us, Our Hands & Our Tools
With the exception of swept frames (those gigantic gold beauties you see in museums), we make all our frames, slips and mounts by hand in our onsite workshop. Your artwork never leaves the premises and is stored safely and securely.
to Sum Up...
Its all about enhancing your artwork.
We hope you'll choose us to be the people to help you with that. The best way to make an enquiry is to just drop in and see us. We'll pop the kettle on and spend quality time with you to find the perfect framing solution.
Our turnaround is usually less than a fortnight, but the length of time it takes us to process your order depends on various factors, such as whether we have to order any materials. Usually we're very well stocked, but if something is not in stock we will do our best to let you know of this delay in advance of you placing the order.
Complex orders can also take longer, so for that reason we usually say about 3 weeks. However, certain jobs - such as cutting new glass, re-stringing a frame or canvas, a quick polish, etc - can be done while you wait and if you need your order completing by Saturday for Uncle Jim's 60th Birthday Bash, that's absolutely fine.
Just let us know; we're happy to accommodate you.
Please be aware - there is no specific answer to the question, "How much does it cost to get a picture framed?"
We have a great range of mouldings, mounts and options available. Furthermore, as colour matching and sizing are key parts of the framing process, we really need to be provided with your artwork from the start of the framing process.
Furthermore, it can occasionally take longer than the estimated completion period to complete your order. This can be caused by a variety of factors, most commonly waiting on delivery of materials - do please accept our apologies for any lateness. This is a rare occurrence and it is of paramount importance to us that we avoid delays wherever possible.
Finally, please do not come for your order before the date on your order form as there is a high chance it will not yet be ready - if it is ready earlier than estimated we will give you a ring, helping save you time and petrol. If you need the order completing by a certain date or within a strict time period please specify at the time of placing the order - we can usually adhere to these specifications at no extra cost to you.
Thank you for your understanding.
