Allan Barr and Jonathan McMahon founded In The Frame in 1996. Between us we have over 50 years experience in Picture Framing. Drop in for some advice or to view our substantial range of beautiful picture framing materials.


Our business was founded upon the principle of providing our customers with framing that will complement their piece, with a speedy efficient service and with high quality materials.

We provide:

All of our framing is custom made to your specifications, to complement the colours and textures in your pieces and show them off to their highest standard and within your budget.

We stock a very wide range of picture frame mouldings, in a large range of widths and depths and in a wide variety of colours and finishes, hardwoods and softwoods. We also supply metal framing to order in a wide variety of colours and sizes.

We also have a large selection of coloured mat and mounting boards, in various textures as well as conservation acid-free mount and backing boards.

We specialise in hand finishing, lime wax style finishes and coloured finishes for every style of framing and every budget.

We have brochures and displays for many other frame mouldings that we can order specially for you.

We also specialise in conservation acid-free mount and backing boards, in conservation UV filtering glass and the latest technology in museum standard low reflection high UV filtering glass, some of which is so clear it has to be seen to be believed. 

Whatever your framing needs, big or small, low or high budget, we can advise you on the best materials for the job and the most complimentary finishes.
