We’ve been working on some Screens (also known as Sneeze Guards) which can be used in many different workplaces to help with social distancing. They are a bit different to others you may see on the market, we have designed them with style and functionality in mind. They are free standing, 3 sided and can be folded up when not in use. There’s a gap at the bottom for passing documents, small goods or payment machines.
We are temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus lockdown. Please do call or email us with any enquiries though. We’re working on social distancing for when we reopen, so that we can do our best to keep staff and customers safe.
Framing Manchester is normally open Monday to Friday, 9.30am – 4.30pm, and Saturday 11am – 5pm as a minimum. We’ll normally be closed on Sundays and Public Holidays, and will try to keep the website updated with any unusual opening hours. If you cannot make it to see us within these hours, please give us a call on 0161 850 2833 or 07947 360460 to arrange a mutually convenient time. We’ll find the best possible way to present your work to suit your budget. Turnaround time for work varies greatly depending on how busy we are, but is usually around 2 weeks. If you have an urgent deadline let us know, we’ll do our best to help!
Although we can’t open our shop at the moment, we may still be able to offer some socially distanced services, especially to customers who use our fine art printing services. We want to do all we can to help keep businesses moving at this time.
You can send us a printing file and instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org (use WeTransfer if it’s a large file) and we will get in touch with you to arrange the rest. Please include your phone number.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been installing and calibrating our new 44 inch printer, an upgrade from the 24 inch one we’ve been using for the past 8 years or so. We’re currently stocking 3 paper types in this new size, Matt, Etching and Photo Rag. For more details on our printing service click here!
At Framing Manchester we understand that customers often need frames in a hurry, and there’s not always time for bespoke framing. Which is why we are stocking several excellent ranges of Ready made frames from Nielsen, in both wood and aluminium.
This way we can provide a fast service whilst keeping up our high standards in quality and design. Combined with the use of our computerised mount cutter, it allows us provide a ‘while you wait’ or same day service wherever possible. If we don’t have the size you need we can often cut a mount to make it fit one of the sizes we have in stock, or you may need us to ‘dry mount’ the artwork, which involves bonding a print onto board to make it nice and flat. Whatever you opt for, we’ll try our best to provide you with the perfect solution.
As well as our Fine Art / Giclee printing service, we can also offer a professional photography service for artists wishing to create prints / reproductions of their work. As always for customers of Framing Manchester we’ll devote our friendly and personal service, tailored to produce the best results for each artwork. We take photographs in a studio environment to ensure even lighting of the artwork, then undertake editing to maximise the potential for printing. We use a full frame DSLR camera, plus top quality professional lens, to maximise the image quality.
The standard charge per artwork is £50 inc VAT, and discounts are offered should you wish to bring in multiple artworks. This includes:
Colour Correction to make the images as close to your originals as possible.
You retain full rights to the images, we keep a copy on file for whenever you need prints in the future.
For larger pictures (usually above A2) we may charge more as we will have to photograph in sections then stitch them together to achieve high resolution. This service is offered from £100.
