Frequently asked questions
How much does an average custom picture frame cost?
There's no definate answer for this! It all depends on which frame style/type you choose, the size of your piece to be framed and any complicating factors (i.e. rugby shirts, hand-painting, additional fixings) to give you an idea, I would say that on average a custom frame can cost anything from £20 to around the £80.
Do you take commissions for paintings?
Yes I do :) Please contact me to discuss your ideas
Can I just drop in at the workshop?
You are very welcome to. However I may not always be there, since if I have the opportunity I will be off in my Studio painting which is not at the same location as the workshop at this point in time.
I ask that you give a call/text/email in advance so that you do not have a wasted trip if I am not there.
How long does it take to get something framed?
This can vary, but on average my lead time is 4 weeks.
Where is your workshop?
The workshop is in Newcastle Emlyn, postcode SA38 9DA. At Helen Elliott Art's Gallery. Check out the 'Picture Framing' page for a map and more info.
Why do I need to book a framing consultation?
Booking is essential so that your time is not wasted if you turn up to discuss your project and I am unavailable.
Can I view your artwork at any galleries?
Currently, not yet!
How do I get a price for picture framing?
You will need to visit me at my workshop with your piece to be framed, where I can take measurements and offer you a selection of framing options, the ones you like can then be priced. I need the size of the piece and the frame you like to work out the price. Price is size dependent and varies from frame to frame.
I am always very happy to give no obligation quotes :)
