Client Testimonials

The quality of the materials I use has always been something I’ve been unwilling to compromise on. I would rather make less and buy the best materials I can afford. I only use John Jones stretchers, my canvas is 12oz Cotton Duck, and the primer and acrylic paint I use is made by Lascaux.

We trust John Jones to deliver a consistently excellent service for major exhibition framing projects here at IWM London. Their highly professional team is friendly, helpful and efficient and the overall experience, like the frames, is top quality. (Following framing for Lee Miller: A Woman's War, October 2015)

It has been a joy getting to know the John Jones team, having had the privilege of working with them over the past few years. Their service and workmanship are consistently exceptional, making each stage of the framing process an absolute pleasure. The only danger is that their work is properly addictive - I can't get enough of their gesso panels and walnut frames! With their innovative collaborations, they are an invaluable support to the London arts community. (April 2015)

The entire process of having a frame made at John Jones is truly an experience in it’s own right. I have often heard the term ‘bespoke’ being thrown about by various framers but nothing prepared me for the thoroughness of the process of making a frame at John Jones. They clearly exhibit the same passion & obsession as the creators of the artwork which they lovingly frame.

John Jones' canvasses are astonishing, and immediately imbue anything I produce with a weight and presence. I switched to their canvasses a few years back and am blown away by the results. Planting the first brush strokes on a canvas of such quality is fantastically rewarding. They are also enormously helpful and a delight to deal with, and their super-smooth spray-priming is second to none.

The John Jones experience is simply second to none. The attention to detail and professionalism the team bring to printing, framing, installation allows me as an artist to focus on the key processes of visualisation and creation.

The John Jones team, in particular the conservators, were so friendly, considerate and helpful.

I was very impressed by the very high standards of workmanship and innovations at John Jones and will have no hesitation in recommending clients.

It’s been a really enjoyable process working with John Jones on framing for our recent exhibitions. We feel that we can put absolute trust in them, from recommendations on framing profiles through to delivery of beautiful frames. IWM would recommend John Jones for excellent high quality frames, their overall service and advice.

Imperial War Museum

Service: Framing

I've actually come to expect attention to detail, consistent quality, and an amazing looking stretched canvas when working with John Jones. It's a prerequisite. The canvas pieces just have that sharpness and weight about them that evoke quality.

I have been using John Jones materials now for over a year and they have become my regular go-to for important projects ... Such considerate customer service is rare these days. I'm very happy to recommend them.

Alastair Gordon

Service: Artists Surfaces

It has been a pleasure to work with Kevin in the Printing department at John Jones. He not only shares my fastidious attention to detail, but also has a great eye for colour reproduction as well as the experience of working with the latest materials and technology. He also shows a genuine enthusiasm for the work.

Ripley
Artist and Photographer

I am a firm believer in precise details and finishes, so as soon as I was in the position to up the quality & specification of my stretchers, it was only natural to be in touch with John Jones.

Shezad Dawood
Artist

Service: Artists Surfaces

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with John Jones. Their team have been incredibly helpful throughout the whole process and the frames for the exhibition are beautiful. Their care for each of our works and their co-operation to carry out condition checking was exceptional; I cannot recommend them enough!

Alice Calloway

Service: Framing

John Jones framed all the works to the highest professional standard. They look fantastic and we strongly encourage all those who purchase the prints to consider the John Jones framing service.

Service: Framing

I choose John Jones panels and canvases to work on because I feel confident in the high quality of material and craftsmanship offered – it’s re-assuring to start the process (which can be a long one!) with a solid base so there are no worries when it comes to exhibiting, delivering or selling work later on.

Sue Williams A’Court
Artist

Service: Artists Surfaces

We are delighted to be working with John Jones for the framing of our important pieces in The Ski Sale here at Christie’s South Kensington. The John Jones frames certainly elevate the posters from advertising images to works of art in themselves. From previous experience, and from monitoring feedback from our clients, I would suggest that without a doubt museum quality framing can enhance the level of bidding on lots.

Nicolette Tomkinson
Christie's

Service: Framing

My collages and embroideries are intricate and crafted, and it is important to me that this craftsmanship and attention to detail is echoed in the framing. That's why it is a joy working with John Jones - Tim always gets what my work is about and which framing solutions will complement it.

Julie Cockburn

Working with John Jones on one of the largest canvases we have ever installed at the ICA was a great partnership. Professionalism, speed and good humour were the essential qualities that their team brought to us.

Gregor Muir

Service: Artists Surfaces

John Jones was recommend to us by the curator at the Michael Stevenson gallery in Cape Town a few years ago and we have been extremely pleased with their work.  We now use John Jones to frame all our new pieces.
