Keeping you in the picture – Update 1

Keeping you in the picture – Update 1

Hi, I hope you are all keeping safe, well and positive in these uncertain times?   
As the workshop is closed during the lockdown, it’s giving me some time to explore some additional framing services I can offer my customers when I re-open.
I am often asked if I have ready made frames in stock to purchase. It’s something I did not offer in the past for a number of reasons;
1.   Storage is limited at the workshop. 2.   The vast frame selection would be unmanageable. 3.  Overwhelming workload prior to lockdown (no time to make stock frames). 
These are only a few of the factors that prevented me from offering the “Ready Made Frame” product.
So, the lockdown has given me time to formulate a plan!
I’m delighted to offer Ready Made Frames when the workshop re-opens.
There will be a selection of colours and standard frame sizes available to purchase on-line (click & collect) and at the workshop. Unfortunately there will not be a delivery/postage option.

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!!
