Bespoke Framing

Jarva Gallery is known for its quality bespoke picture framing service. Using the finest conservation standard materials to ensure your treasured item is displayed as it truly deserves to be.


All our framing takes place in our workshop in Whaley Bridge.We have over 200 mouldings to choose from here in the gallery with expert help on hand to offer different styles, tastes and budget.

A huge canvass came into our gallery to be framed. We used a double frame . A white inner moulding and a soft distressed gold outer frame. As it was on canvass no glass was needed.

The images show work being done in our workshop. We have a lovely original painting being framed in a double frame no need for glass as its an oil painting.



A pair of first  baby shoes- how gorgeous are these. A tappered box is hand made using chosen coloured mounts. The original reciept is inserted below the shoes. Finished with a black and silver frame and our speciality glass.(not shown)

Whilst a box canvass can be hung directly on the wall without a frame.

Here we show you what a difference framing one looks like. It gives a more impressive result for a statement piece of art. We have used a black slip and a large outer frame to give a dramatic result.

A beautiful original oil painting in vibrant colours. We have used here a triple frame.

Its original frame was a dull gold and did nothing to bring out the colours.

This now looks like a brand new picture and presents it how it deserves to be. 

The customers were delighted with the result.

Using a triple frame we where able to use the outer frame with depth and this creates dimension to the finished piece. Detail on this frame is a silver which sits nicely with the white washed wood finish. I find silver lifts a pictures especially when lots of colours are in the artwork. It only needed a little so not to over power the at work.

A very special original piece of art by Mark Dempsteader just finished in our workshop.


Charcoal on paper with a deckled edge, this piece was float mounted to show the edge of the paper. A slip was used between the frame and the glass to keep the glass of the artwork. Speciality Glass is also used.

Great idea for a special event.


We supplied the extra large mount for the day. Use either an A4 piece of paper with "Wedding day" comments to be written on or "Congratulations please sign." Or 80 today, 21 today ect.  Its just great fun to keep.


The end of the day you have fantastic memories written to look at and remember. Choose your favourite photo to go in it and come and finish getting it framed.

Another Face Lift for a small beautiful picture.


This art work was very delicate with beautiful colours but was very over powered by a dark glossy frame. Yo can see the glass is extreamly reflective so difficult to view the piece.


Our approuch (below) was to give a fresher feel by using a triple mount with a small slither of a complimentory colour in the second mount. The frame chosen was a soft matt silver with a little bit of detail to give interest but not distract from the art work. We then used the special Claryl glass that has a reflective value of only 1% enabling the viewer to see clearly the artwork.




New Glass, triple mount and a soft silver frame.

Face Lift - A great example of another print that is loved but is very dated by its mount and frame. By using lighter coloured mounts showed i the image below and introducing a soft coloured under mount with a contempoary frame it draws the eye now to the artwork.

A gorgeous framing job to do- this was a beautiful photo brought into Jarva Gallery to be framed and it looks stunning. Using a large white moulding with the speciality glass gives this peice a statement finish. 

A unique framing oportunity came in at Jarva Gallery recently. Framing a coat of arms for a lovely customer who Im very happy to say loved the work we had done for him. The item had to be boxed framed because of the depth of the wax containers. All work involved conservation tapes and mount boards. A lovely job to do for a lovely couple. 

Just to show you the start of the coat of arms piece (above) as all framing jobs start of here in the gallery. Choosing the mounts and mouldings plus any details to enhance and compliment the item wether it be a family photo, childs drawing, greeting card, football shirt or a special piece like this one..
