Keeping You In The Picture

Keeping You In The Picture

Hi, I really do hope you’re all keeping safe and well through these uncertain times. I think It is fair to say it’s been an especially tough year for everyone. I just thought I’d give you an update on what’s been happening at the workshop and what I have planned for the weeks ahead. In all honesty, nothing much has been happening front of house recently due to restrictions imposed by government, but there’s lots been happening behind the scenes. This update will highlight the measures I’ve put in place to keep you and myself safe when the workshop reopens and welcomes you back.

Workshop Closure – Government Advice – COVID-19

Workshop Closure – Government Advice – COVID-19

Framing Unlimited has been monitoring the COVID-19 Virus on a daily basis and taking advice from Public Health England and the Government to ensure my customers are kept safe.
Government Announcement. 
In light of the announcement made by the Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March 2020 with regards to the mandatory lockdown of the United Kingdom, I have had to closed the workshop for the foreseeable future. 
More information on the Government’s advice can be found at GOV.uk
Frame Orders. My picture framing service has been categorised as a non essential service, hence closure of the workshop. If you have recently placed an order for frames and not yet collected them, rest assured they are safely stored. Completion of all orders and collections will resume when the Government communicates that I can reopen the workshop. I encourage you to connect with me for regular updates through either;

Box Framing a British Military No2’s Uniform Jacket

Box Framing a British Military No2’s Uniform Jacket

A friend and local business owner recently completed some military medal mounting for Lloyd, an ex-serving soldier from Newark, Nottingham. 
They struck up a conversation and Lloyd shared an idea he had for a retirement gift for a very good friend of his. They hatched a plan to produce a retirement gift with the WOW factor!
During the conversation, George who owns McKay’s Kilts and Medal in Consett, suggested using my framing services to help create the gift.
Lloyd  visited my workshop the very same day to discuss the options.To cut a long story short, the images you see in this post are of the finished item. Working together helped get the WOW factor and more!!

Local History Framed

Local History Framed

Invitation to view an item I’ve framed.
So…….. I received a call from a customer who I recently framed a large flag for.
Tom, who is a key member in my local community presented a Boys Brigade Flag to be framed at my workshop. The flag was discovered during recent renovation works at West Pelton Methodist Church. The church is literally 30 steps from my family home.
On completion, Tom promised an invite to view the framed flag once it was hung in the church. 
I very rarely get the opportunity to view something I’ve framed once it leaves the workshop.
It was humbling to see the framed flag in the church and to listen to the positive feedback it received.
