THE SIGN OF A QUALITY FRAMER
Commended Framers have been awarded an emblem of excellence by the art and framing industry’s trade association, The Fine Art Trade Guild. Their skills, both practical and theoretical, have been examined by a Guild Tester in a rigorous two-hour test. The aim of the Commended Framer scheme is to distinguish the skilled from the semi-skilled and to help the public select a professional framer who will apply a high level of expertise to the conservation and display of their artwork.
Commended Framers have proven expertise in framing artwork on paper and canvas, as well as an understanding of the properties of the different types of artwork and how each should be framed and conserved. They have a professional understanding of framing materials and equipment: distinguishing features, design implications and when appropriate to use each. They have been tested on workshop practice, including the accepted methods of handling customers’ artwork. Commended Framers are competent to advise customers on technical and conservation matters, as well as design and presentation, while keeping to a budget.
You can expect frames made by Commended Framers to be structurally sound, blemish-free and created with care, professionalism and attention to detail. So, when choosing a framer look out for the Commended Framer logo.
We stock many local and Scottish images, prints and originals by artists based in the area
Our offcuts from mount board are all recycled through local schools, community centers and Aberdeen Children’s Hospital.
