When it comes to framing, we care about quality, value for money and showcasing your artwork in the best way possible. We know that every item that comes through our door is precious, whether it’s a painting by a renowned artist or your grandson’s first football jersey – and so we treat all items with the same love and care that you do!
We will work with you to create a frame that really sets off your piece and will help protect it for the future. We always follow the Fine Art Trade Guild’s recommended approach for preserving and protecting your artwork.
We prefer to take the time to get to know you and your aspirations for your piece. So, if you can, it’s best to arrange a consultation. If you have your own ideas about what you think works – fantastic! And if you haven’t a clue, that’s fine too – because we know exactly what will work and can offer you a wide range of options to match your taste and your home décor.
All framing is carried out on our premises, by Fine Art Trade Guild member and Certified Framer Dylan W. Banks GCF (APF).. We aim to have your frame completed within one week, but if there is something urgent, then we will do our best to meet your needs – just let us know!
So, please give us a call to book a consultation or just pop in to the Hallows Gallery for a chat. All but a few of our artworks in the Hallows Gallery have been framed in house, so if you want to have a look at the way we do things, pop in!

Framing Terms and Conditions
A 50% deposit must be paid on all framing orders before work can begin.
Unfortunately, we no longer accept cheques, and all framing work must be paid in full before the art work can be taken home. If your financial circumstances change, please get in touch and let us know so we can work with you.
We will give you an estimated date of collection, and contact you within three days of that estimated date to confirm a collection date. If you require a piece by a certain date, please let our framer know in advance so we can make sure your art work is ready for you when you need it.
We ask that all art work be collected no later than one month after its confirmed collection date.
If we have no contact from you after 3 months, artwork will be stored off site at your own risk. We reserve the right to sell uncollected art work after 12 months to recoup our costs.
The Hallows Gallery does not offer framing services for any art work with an individual value of £5,000 or more.
For pieces worth £1,000 or more, we will photograph and keep an inventory of those works while they remain in our care. This will be removed from our inventory once work has been collected.
In the unlikely event of theft or destruction of your art work whilst in our care, you will be compensated up to the current market value of the piece – as is the custom throughout the framing industry.
In the unlikely event of damage to your artwork whilst under our care, we will appoint an independent valuation service to evaluate the financial impact, if any, that has been caused. Liability will be limited to the amount specified by that valuation service or the cost of restoration by a professional art restorer appointed by The Hallows Gallery – whichever is less.
We are unable to provide compensation for loss of enjoyment or distress and inconvenience.
