FINISHING OFF YOUR COMPLETED WORK

Now that you've finished your project, why not let us finish it off for you so that you can proudly put it on display?

We offer a very competitive framing and making up service for pictures, cushions and bell pulls. Even if you don't want to take advantage of the finishing service, we do recommend that tapestries are stretched once finished so put them back in to shape - something we can do for you.
