Welcome to Staffords Gallery and the Framing studio.
STAFFORDS GALLERY ANNOUNCEMENT.
As we are still awaiting new premises we cannot offer framing services at this time.
However we can offer Canvas Stretching, re-stretching and de-stretching.
Canvas too large to to get into your space, too large to move from one room to another or you want to move the canvas, some where else and it needs to be de-stretched , this is a professional service we offer and we are very very good at it.
Used by Galleries and Shippers, no matter what size the canvas we can help and even the largest canvases can be stretched or re-stretched in a couple of hours.
If you need this service please just call or email and we will quote you immediately.
We also hang works with many different methods for many different walling systems or construction types. From traditional lathe and plaster walls to modern plasterboard and solid wall types, such as concrete or timber. Minimal disturbance to finishes and with conservation always considered.
From one frame to hundreds all done at times to suit you and with care and professionalism.
Stafford Crombie, owns one of the very last family run Picture Framing businesses here in the heart of Central London.
We hand make frames in traditional and contemporary designer styles.
We use many different woods as well as finished mouldings in hundreds of styles. We can supply aluminium frames, in a very large selection of styles and finishes. We can frame anything, so if you have memorabilia, no matter what, Medals, shirts, hats, gloves etc, we make box frames to your specification.
We do not use expanded polystyrene mouldings, that the majority of online framers use, they are brittle, joined with super glue, they look cheap and they are cheap and they are very bad for the environment as they cannot be recycled and take thousands of years to breakdown.
Nothing compares to a hand made, hand finished frame, that will last for generations to come.
No matter what the purpose of your frame is, whether it is a gift, a decorative item, for exhibition or for sale, a hand made frame will always look and feel better than any mass produced frame.
We also fabricate crystal clear acrylic display cases for any purpose, in any size and shape allowing unimpeded 3D viewing.
We cut window mounts by hand, single, double, triple, multi window and we also cut circular and oval mounts.
We have the facility to dry mount artwork, posters, photography onto many different boards, Foam board, Dibond Aluminium sheet, Kappa board, MDF etc.We can also mount photography to clear acrylic panels for a stunning fresh look.
We pride are selves on being recognised by renowned artists for the quality of our canvas stretching, Exhibition stretchers or Gallery stretcher bars as well as budget bars for lower value work.
We stock the best glass and glazing, Water white, UV and Museum glass offering less than one percent reflection. We also stock UV acrylic, lightweight and very safe for your framed items.
We offer on site services, to carry out work,whether it is your office, home, exhibition space, Museum or Gallery.
