Below are photos of an interesting, late 1800’s print that was in a badly damaged state. New mount, line and wash gave it a considerable improved appearance. Then, popped into it’s frame and it was ready to grace any wall.

As November morphs into December

WE are still working to appointment only. To make an appointment call 01792545181. One other thing of importance that we have to mention…..it is unlikely we will be able to complete works currently taken in before the end of the year. Some materials are in short supply over the past months but we are doing our best. Meanwhile, interesting works are being completed. Here are a couple of six-window mounted collections ready for framing.

Telephone 01792 646181 Tuesday-Friday 09:00 until 14:00

Below are some examples of interesting works we are framing these past few days…….

Worth Making an Appointment For

Appointments are still needed as we squeeze our way out of the Pandemic. To make an appointment call 01792 6464181 Tuesday-Friday between 09:00 and 14:00.

Below is an example of our waterline wash and line service. Based on mount size and number of lines, this one is 435 x 315mm and the four line with wash cost £7.76.

A single line for the same size mount would be £1.55; a two line £3.10 and so on.

As we Go into October 2021

We are still affected by the Pandemic, so……….

APPOINTMENTS ONLY To Make an appointment………..

TELEPHONE 01792 646181 BETWEEN 09:00 AND 14:00 Tuesday to Friday.

There has been a slow-down in the deliveries of some materials we use. Glass, for example is taking weeks to arrive and most of our mainstream work includes glass.

Please continue to observe Covid 19 safety advice.

August 3rd 2021

Interesting works come in for repair and clean. This one particularly fits with the historic image of Swansea. The city had a fleet of ships, in the 19th century, that brought in copper ore from all quarters of the globe. There was a time when ships queued to enter the docks. We cleaned and repaired all the necessary parts of the frame and canvas.

As we go into August

Some attractive works are coming through that we will be showing you as this month progresses. We also have a ‘window full’ of interesting prints for sale on days when the sun is not shining directly on the glass. Many are historic.

Current Situation……. August 1st 2021

The uncertainties of the Pandemic are still affecting us and consequently our customers.

Mainly, there has been a slow-down in the deliveries of some materials we use. Glass, for example is taking weeks to arrive and most of our mainstream work includes glass.

For public safety we are working to appointments only. That is another factor.

The ‘track and trace’ hit us too and enforced a 10 day closure. Work is still going through but its not as quick as we would wish. You can see some interesting examples from the past few weeks, before the ‘pinged’ episode on neighbouring pages.

To make an appointment, please call 01792 646181 during normal shop hours, which are Tuesday-Friday 09:00 to 14:00 and until 12:00 on Saturday.
