This was a great experience start to finish. Colin came to my house to collect and deliver, well armed with more options than I thought was possible for my 'simple framing job'. He subtly guided my somewhat naive decisions about what I wanted to make the final result so much better than if I only followed my own ideas. I never felt I was pushed into a decision, but he asked me to consider other options with a clear explanation why. The pros and cons of different frames, glass, backgrounds and frames were clearly explained. I was kept informed at all stages of the process, and Colin was always punctual and polite and a pleasure to deal with. He even helped me hang the largest of my pictures with a broken big toe. I am very happy and can only recommend Colin very strongly if you live anywhere in the Oxted/Westerham area or well beyond. It will be worth the trip! He has a wealth of experience in the framing business and that is clear. I thought rates were very reasonable for the quali...

I've had several pictures framed by Colin and they always look so professional. I had this one moisture sealed as it was being displayed in my kitchen. Colin is always professional and helpful in giving his opinion on what is best. Great service delivering to my door too. Would definitely recommend.

We were introduced to Colin through a local artist. What a find. We had lots of of pictures and prints to reframe. Colin’s expert advice and eye for detail are first class. He delivers a top quality product at very reasonable rates. We would not go anywhere else. Jim and Janice Begbie
