“Samaritans needed a high quality print, production of a plaque, mounting and framing for a high profile presentation at short notice. James gave us clear and calm advice to a precise schedule, which helped enormously. He has a great eye for those production details that make such a job look professional and meet the high standards we required.”
I commissioned James to frame and present for me “The Pink London Union Jack painting”. This original work of art was painted by the well renowned artist Filippo Ioco.The painting was produced for the launch of #PINKLondon2014 a star studded celebrity event held in September at Gilgamesh as an event to launch October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Artwork is likely to be exhibited around the world and therefore having the right framing and presentation was essential not only to highlight the painting but more importantly to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness. James achieved everything I hoped for and more. His work was exemplary in both design and finishing and compliments the artwork beautifully. I am sure that the painting and its presentation will be recognised both Nationally and Internationally.
“Seeing my photographs beautifully framed by Surrey framers has brought them to life. The personal service that James provides is second to none. He patiently sat with me and explained what effect the various shades of mounting card would create and showed me some of the large examples of frames he has in his shop until we decided which would be best for which picture. The finished product was amazing! I will keep going back. A first class, friendly, professional service!”

“I cannot commend you highly enough for the wonderful job you have done with my poor etching of Venice, which has ashamedly been without a frame for 22 years. Despite coming from an artistic background your input was vital to getting the balance just right. I have now had it up in 3 rooms and still can’t make up my mind where best to put it, I feel another hole in the wall may be called for! Framing could get addictive as I am going to spend my weekend finding other treasures that deserve your treatment. Thank you for an excellent service and good value.”
James has framed a number of antique manuscripts and maps for us and his craftsmanship is absolutely superb. He provides excellent attention to detail throughout the entire process, advising on the mount, type of frame, and quality of glass required for the project, as well as making certain that the proper preservation of the items is ensured. We cannot recommend his professional approach and quality workmanship highly enough.
“The right frame can make or break a painting; this requires crucial judgements concerning proportions, colour and harmony. I was delighted to discover a really wide selection of mouldings to suit all kinds of pictures at Surrey Framers and also a framer who brings to his work the eye of an artist as well as an expert craftsman.”

“I cannot thank James enough for the exquisite work he did on framing a football shirt for my son. Not only did he manage it in a short space of time but his workmanship is amazing. To top it off he even Christmas wrapped it as it was too big for me to do! I would highly recommend Surrey framers and definitely use them again.”
“I was searching high and low for a company that would be able to offer a bespoke (and very special) framing service for my husband’s golf tour memorabilia and I found James at Surrey Framers. I cannot begin to say what a fantastic job he has done. From the moment I stepped through the Surrey James offered lots of advice, spent ages talking to me about what I thought I wanted, as well as coming up with lots of design ideas himself – which was just what I needed as I didn’t really know the first thing about framing memorabilia! It felt like the whole process was very personal. I knew the standard of workmanship would be high but I was completely bowled over (and emotional!!) when I saw the finished frame – it was amazing! If you want a superb level of workmanship coupled with a very individual and unique service, then this is the place to go!”
“Surrey Framers are brilliant to work with, James turned around a full art exhibition very quickly. The framing was amazing and really eye-catching. They worked with my budget and were very accommodating. The Photographers were over the moon with how the images had been reproduced and set in the frames. The art exhibition took place at Denbies in Surrey and attracted a lot of visitors. I would definitely recommend Surrey Framers.”

“A friend painted a beautiful oil painting of an area of South Africa that I love. I wanted a special frame that would enhance the painting. James hand painted a frame and floated the painting in it. It looks magnificent. I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend this framing company.”
“I am writing to let you know how delighted I am with my framed rugby shirt. The frame is beautifully made and of the highest quality. The way the shirt is displayed is quite stunning. I am also very grateful for the advice you gave when I was ordering the frame and the useful template to assist with hanging it. Thank you for the excellent service. I would definitely use Surrey Framers again and recommend you to others.”
“Just like to thank you for a very good job on the West Ham shirt that you framed for us. Our grandson will be pleased – that’s if his Dad does not get there first. Thanks very much, it looks great.”
