Christmas Holiday Opening Hours

Christmas Holiday Opening Hours

Christmas is fast approaching and I would like to make you aware of Framing Unlimited’s Christmas holiday details.
The workshop will close at 5:00pm on Friday 22nd December 2017
Opening again from 9:00am on Monday 8th January 2018
If you have any items you would like framing before I close on the 22nd December, they must be dropped off at the workshop no later than the 15th December 2017.
Any orders I receive after this date can not be guaranteed to be ready in time for Christmas.
As you can imagine it’s a very busy time of year and the sooner you can get your items to me for framing the better.
It’s been another fantastic year for Framing Unlimited and I thank you for your continued business.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Kindest regards – Dave

Justice League Artwork by D. Storey

David is a very talented local artist/illustrator who lives in County Durham.
A family friend who I’ve framed a number of items for, enquired about displaying some of David’s artwork in my workshop. I am a big believer in promoting local artists work and where possible display them in my workshop. I agreed to meet David to look at his work.
David popped into the workshop earlier this week with some examples of his work. I immediately agreed to display his fantastic artwork and promote it on my website, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn social media feeds.

Framing Games Console Memorabilia

Framing Games Console Memorabilia

Do you know someone who is fanatical about gaming? If you do then I’m sure you will be aware that many of the console games have limited edition versions. Some I have seen are simply amazing!
With Christmas  just around the corner so why not have them framed. They make stunning pieces of Art.
These games often cost a small fortune and end up tucked away in a draw.
Get them framed and up on the wall! Its more affordable than you might think.
Gears of War is a video game franchise created and originally owned by Epic Games, developed and managed by The Coalition, and owned and published by Microsoft Studios.

Recent work

Recent work

It’s been weeks or maybe even months since I’ve posted any images of my recent work. There are 2 reasons for this; 
Firstly – Its been a crazy busy couple of months in the workshop (not that I’m complaining about that) and I simply have not had chance to get onto my computer to write any posts.
Secondly – I’m not one to boast about my work. I think the quote below sums this up perfectly. If I were to add to it, I’d say “my work speaks for itself”.

Did you take part in the world famous Simplyhealth Great North Run 2017?
If you did, then a massive congratulations on your fantastic achievement.
You were part of the biggest and best Half Marathon in the world.
Be proud of it and boast about it! You’ve got the medal to prove it.
I am proud to say that I completed the Half marathon along side my wife Claire.
Claire continues to amaze me with her strength, grit and pure determination in events like the Simplyhealth Great North Run.
I’ve framed our medals, along with a picture of us at the finish line. I’m proud to say we completed the 13.1 mile course along with the other 43,125 competitors. The frame will be taking pride of place with Claire’s other medals on our wall at home.
