So many options,
so many ideas 

1. We offer great ideas

There are a million ways to frame art, and we know about most of them.

Our clients love us because we are so good in narrowing the many options to provide framing ideas that work. We not only enhance the art our frames contain, we provide design solutions that integrate appropriately with surrounding décor and architecture.

As with all great art, it’s the great ideas that really count.

2. Impeccable standards of framing

If time will tell, then inferior framing will certainly show in damage sustained over time when cheap materials are used. We can tell you many horror stories of valuable art which has been harmed over the years by the damaging effects of acidity in mounting boards and the destructive effects of UV light.

Our commitment to the highest of standards is reflected in the quality of our work. It’s just not worth risking valuable art in the hands of less experienced framers.

3. Honest and competitive pricing

To be honest, most of our clients no longer check our prices against our competitors. While we‘re happy to leave the cheap end of the market to others, so many clients have long since learned our pricing is very reasonable for the standard of service and quality they prefer.

If ever the old adage that you get what you pay for should be applied, it’s also worth noting that when it comes to framing it’s the quality that can take years to become evident that really matters.

We don’t cut corners and we don’t compromise on quality to achieve false economy.

While cheaper suppliers might offer easier or more obvious framing solutions, Smartart takes a bespoke approach to each piece. Extensive experience and a deep knowledge of the diversity of mouldings, boards and glass available equips Stacey to make design recommendations that set her work apart from the others. The difference between an individually tailored solutions compared to an off-the-shelf option is the difference between good and great.

The range of mouldings we offer is enormous, including:

  • Gold or silver leaf frames
  • Water gilt frames
  • Stained timber frames
  • Faux finished frames
  • Art Deco or Art Nouveau frames
  • Victorian or French Empire style frames
