Towngate Framing revels in framing the unusual and quirky items as well as the more traditional framing work. We take in restoration work, take pride in our conservation framing and thoroughly enjoy the designing of the frames and mounts for the many different items we have brought into us, in Poole, Dorset, from as far away as London, North Devon and the Midlands.
We understand how important the frame is to enhance the picture or item being framed but we also understand that the frame must be humble to the image or item and not detract from its importance, it is a fine art the professional picture framer must learn and we fully appreciate how much it can mean to a client to get it wrong. We will happily colour co-ordinate the framed work with the clients' decor and advise on the best ways to display artwork and protect it from fading and the ravages of time.
Overall we like to feel that we help our clients to enjoy their visit to our workshops when they bring their special items to us and we so enjoy giving them a framed item that they will have pleasure from and treasure for many years.
One of the largest parts of our framing side is the bespoke, catering for many different sizes and colour schemes. We provide a help with selecting the right moulding, mount and framing choice to best showcase the artwork.
We have framed a wide selection of different 3d objects over the years from a Cliff Richard stage jacket through to cerimonal swords and we have even framed the icing sugar from the top of a birthday cake. 3d objects can present some great creative options from layout to colour schemes.
Framing pieces of sporting memorabilia has always been an exciting framing service we have offered. From sporting jackets, tickets and programs or even seats from a stadium we have framed a wide range of sport memorabilia and enjoy creating something that you can enjoy for years to come.
Medals & Military Artefacts:
Service medals and items are often brought in, each with their own history and story to tell. We like to combine as much of this story into the framing as possible. Of course we do also have medals for sporting events and have even had the privilege to frame an OBE medal and certificate.
