To keep all of our staff and customers safe, and due to lockdown measures, we have to keep staffing levels to a minimum at the moment, which often means it’s difficult to get work done quickly. We still aim to get all outstanding orders completed as soon as possible. You must book appointments to drop off or collect work via our booking service – click here for details.
We will be contacting all customers that have existing orders to advise of when their orders are ready to collect, or if there are any delays.
We will post updates on the website, thanks for your understanding in these difficult and unpredictable times!
Seasons Greetings! Whilst we are no longer offering bespoke framing orders in time for Christmas, our Express Framing Service will still be running. We have a wide selection of high quality ready-made frames, and a mount cutting service to go with them. We may be able to frame your items while you wait, or else for collection the same or next day.
You can book an Express Framing appointment by clicking on ‘Make a Booking’ on the left hand side of the screen.
A Framing Manchester Gift Voucher is a useful alternative too, we can provide them by post or email if you don’t fancy heading out at the moment. Call us on 0161 850 2833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we’re classed as a non-essential retailer, sadly we are unble to allow customers to enter the premises from 5th November until the lockdown ends. We will be working behind the scenes to complete our backlog of orders, and won’t be taking any new bespoke framing orders during lockdown.
We may still be able to offer printing and framing services as long as you can send us files digitally. We recommend using WeTransfer to send us digital files, to our email address email@example.com
Any order collections must be booked via our website, or by following this link:
It’s great to be back, and we are overwhelmed by the reponse from customers! We’ve made some changes to the shop for everyone’s safety, and are limiting the shop to 2 customers at a time. For the time being, we will be closed on Mondays.
To help with social distancing we are using an appointment system for orders and collections. This will really help us manage the flow of customers, and should avoid customers having to queue outside. To book an appointment please click on ‘book online now’ to the left of the page.
We anticipate that lead times may be a little longer than usual, so please bear with us, we hope to be back to normal as soon as possible.
After a long break, Framing Manchester is (hopefully) reopening on Tuesday 16th June. To help with new social distancing measures we are using an appointment system for both new orders and collections. Please click on the link to the left and select the category that is the most relevant.
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.
New Appointment System in operation, please click on the link to the left of the page! Hours are limited during Tier 4 restrictions so please make a booking for Collection / Drop Off
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. 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!
Following the government announcement on the 4th January 2021, as a ‘non-essential’ retailer we cannot allow anyone to enter our premises until further notice. We are also a manufacturer so the workshop can still be operational.
We will be continuing to offer our framing and printing services, especially if they are work related. You’ll be able to book a drop-off or collection slot by clicking here. You must ensure that you are following the government guidance if you wish to use these services.
If you wish to drop something off for bespoke framing please book a slot, then attach your contact details to the artwork. It would be helpful if you could also write down any ideas or options for how you would like the item framed and hand it to us when you drop it off. We can then discuss it over the phone, video call, or send you images of samples to make sure it’s what you want. PLEASE NOTE: We may need to quarantine the artworks for a few days before we get in touch. It’s quite a long winded process, but it does still offer some options for those who need framing for work related projects.
Fine Art (Giclee) printing orders can usually be arranged online, if you need any help or advice please call 0161 850 2833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send us files for printing using WeTransfer.
We’ll be completing any orders placed before Christmas as soon as possible, and will let you know when they are ready to collect.
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!
