Certainly can. The picture framing shop that is attached to True's Yard in St Anne's St.
If you go there tell them Ev from True's sent you.

Forgot to say its called "Heritage Picture framing"
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

The one on the Saturday Marketplace closed a while ago - and they were a bit expensive.

Depending what you need framed, I think cornishdave (http://www.daveashfield.co.uk) on this very forum was offering framing a while ago, or you could try Ray Gribble (http://www.raygribble.co.uk) in Wereham. I've used Ray in the past for a very large frame I needed and for repairs to a damaged frame. He's very good, and better value than anyone I found in town.

If it's just that you've got something that's an odd size for a standard frame off-the-shelf, what I now prefer to do is to buy a frame larger than the image and have a custom mount cut. I use Cotswold Mounts for the mounts (http://www.cotswoldmounts.co.uk). That's a lot cheaper than having a custom frame built. There are some good frames at very good prices in The Range and Ikea.
I choose to share some of my images with this forum, but please respect my wishes. View them where I display them and don't download, copy, print or use them to create other works without my written permission. I can provide prints if requested.

Ev and Alastair - thank you for such quick answers. It was my son-in-law who wanted to know so I'll certainly pass on all the information to him.

Ev - I can't believe I haven't spotted that place next to True's Yard!

Thanks to both of you

Hi

Henderson art centre at Gaywood.

Bill Henderson is an excellent framer and has done quite a few jobs for me and I can highly recommend him.

Jools - thank you for that good suggestion.

Another place I've passed hundreds of times (I've even been in there) and didn't think of! :roll:
