Custom picture framing service

Whatever your framing need we will offer a solution here at In a Frame in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire; right on the border between Essex and Hertfordshire. We offer a custom picture framing service and all our work is completed on the premises by our qualified picture framer.

Your artwork, whether an original or reproduction, will be professionally framed to the highest standard using only quality materials.

We frame prints, photography, posters, watercolours, pastels and tapestries, in fact virtually any medium you wish to have beautifully presented to enhance your home or business.

We have a wide range of frames from which to choose. These include popular barewood frames in Ash and Oak which we can hand-finish with wood stain, natural beeswax, acrylic paint or paints that give an almost metallic contemporary finish. We shall be delighted to finish your frame in a colour or colours of your choice and can suggest innovative finishes to give you a unique picture frame. We also stock the more traditional frames of course!

We also have a good selection of Aluminium frames in varying but contemporary profiles and colours. These look very smart in an office environment as well as setting off large posters in the home. The deep rebate aluminium frames are very popular for object framing where more frame space is needed.

Oils on Canvas

We hand stretch oil paintings onto stretcher bars and offer a wide selection of suitable frame mouldings and slips.

Tapestries, Needlework Art and Cross Stitch

We have gained a reputation for framing tapestries, needlework art, cross stitches, etc. Our reputation has been gained through our insistence that only the traditional lacing method is used rather than some of the other unsatisfactory methods (e.g. glue, masking tape, staples, double-sided tape, etc) adopted by some other local framers. After all, you have probably invested many hours in creating your tapestry. Why not have it framed with care?

Medal Framing

We are regularly asked to frame medals and pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive range of mounting options.

What better way to present and protect important heirlooms for future generations?
