about us

sgraffiti are specialist framers, with more than 50 years experience. We supply galleries, interior designers, other framers, exporters and local clients. Our reputation also attracts private clients from further afield.

We have a whole wall of corner samples to select from, most of which can have hundreds of different finishes, and offer expert guidance to help you choose the right combination. We can also provide moulding milled to specification.

Many different types of wood are appropriate for frame making, and we use the following: ash, maple, oak, cherry, sycamore, walnut, chestnut, beach, elm and sapele.

We get many requests for box frames, and have developed unique mounting techniques to keep the artwork flatter on the supporting board than with more traditional methods.

All our work is at least conservation to museum standard. From the mount board (both linen & wood pulp) used to various grades of glass available (UV, AR or museum).

sgraffiti has been gilding frames for galleries, private clients, interior designers and other framers for many years. Corner chevrons can be supplied to help you or your clients make informed choices, or we can work to specification.

sgraffiti works with galleries to produce the ideal frames for their art. We keep abreast of current trends in the aesthetics of framing of modern Art. Our clients include: Sothebys, Sadie Cole HQ, Saatchi Gallery, Guardian News and Media, The Imperial War Museum, The Estorick Collection and many others.

Our premises are secure and insured to cover high value art. You can park in our customers’ car park, by prior arrangement. See the contact page for our address and directions.
