Taking everything into account we are going to keep some measures in place to keep our Gallery a safe place to visit.
After the huge success and customer feedback we have decided to keep our new appointment system in place for both Framing and collections - it allows customers who are nervous about covid to avoid other customers getting too close and makes the collection process quicker.
We will be allowing walk-ins, however, appointments will be given priority.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support and once again want to say thank you to our amazing NHS for everything they have done during the pandemic.
P.S All of our staff are fully vaccinated.
At Inframe Gallery Ltd we frame all items, where possible, to a preservation level. This means that what we do to your items will be 100% reversible.
All Materials used will not damage your items or artwork, we do not use glue or staples. On most items we use a conservation grade gummed hinging tape to attach your image to the under mount, this can be removed if necessary, on other items where this method is not acceptable we have various other methods depending on the item or artwork. These range from photo corners to platform mounts and we will advise on the best method depending on your item.
All of our mount board is acid free, which means it won't bleed anything into your artwork and it won't discolour. All images and artwork are mounted using and acid free under-mount.
UV Protective glass is also available, which can remove up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays, which will reduce the artwork from fading. See out Glazing tab for more info.
