At John Jones, we believe that bespoke framing solutions should firstly be functional, providing artwork protection. Our fine art framers understand that it is not just vintage photographs and watercolours that require conservation picture framing services. In today’s environment, even newly produced artwork requires protection. Secondly, fine art framing should be beautiful; even the simplest of picture frames should be proportionally elegant, with strong corners and a smooth, consistent finish.
We see framing clients by appointment each day at our London framing studios. As bespoke picture framers our projects vary widely, and over the course of a week we’ll see artists, designers, collectors, architects, conservators and retailers. The diversity of our clients is what has contributed to our in-depth knowledge of framing solutions for all artwork mediums, placing John Jones in a strong position to advise on artwork conservation and artwork presentation.
The numerous frame designs, artwork presentation and frame glazing options available today mean there are a number of decisions to be made. We recommend you book an appointment with one of our experienced Design Consultants so that we can develop framing solutions to meet your requirements and budget, ensuring every aspect of the frame design is the best it can be. Whilst we are able to offer a quote over the phone, it is helpful to come in to our studio and see the range of options first hand. A framing consultation can be as short as twenty minutes or as long as a couple of hours, depending upon the scale of your project, how involved you'd like to be, and how much you're happy to leave to your frame designer.
There is a great variety of artwork presentation and framing solutions available at John Jones; from simple wooden profiles, to welded metal with special finishes, to gold leaf gilding and Perspex boxes. We have a large team of experts ready to select, cut, join, sand, finish and prepare your artisan frame. Leadtimes vary depending on the design, but once it’s completed by our craftspeople, you’ll be amazed at the results. Quality framing solutions by skilled picture framers can literally transform artwork and an interior design. For images of some of our bespoke frames, please see our range of case studies.
