Quality Framing, Great Support!
Picture Frames and Art is an established picture frames and art supplier based in Hull, East Yorkshire. We have over 45 years’ experience in the picture framing industry and are here to pass this on to new customers in Hull and surrounding areas.
We are here to assist businesses and the public with all their framing requirements, as you will see from our services pages we offer a variety of services. We provide framed art to canvas manufacturers and are heavily involved in the hotel and leisure industries. Whilst we have been busy supplying these business sectors we have also been creating bespoke pieces for many people and photographers who rely on our services to create unique frames for special photos and pieces of art.
Picture Frames and Art provide framing services to interior designers, hotel chains, restaurants, bars, conservation framing, wedding framing, medal and army memorabilia, sports shirts, football, rugby, boxing gloves and all sports memorabilia.
We have a large showroom and warehouse in Hull which is open to the public Monday – Thursday 8am – 5pm and on Fridays and Saturdays 8am-4pm. We welcome anybody to bring anything they require framing or just to come and have a look at the products we have on display. Popular items we have on sale at the moment are the crystal art and mirror frames.
Using our knowledge and experience we are able to frame and design almost any item. We have had in the past customers come in and request that we recreate mirrors/frames that they have seen elsewhere and recreated the frame for them. So not only are they getting the frame they want at a more competitive price, they are also getting the extra service in that the product has been handmade and created just for them.
We are also used to handling valuable pieces of art and you can be assured that they are insured and cared for whilst on our premises. Mick has in the past framed many pieces of art including a Monet, examples of his frames are still in The Tate Gallery today.
