Skills are a specialist picture framing service for fine art originals, limited editions, artists and photographers in the Milton Keynes area, and have offered high quality picture framing services from Stony Stratford for nearly 30 years.
With our knowledge and collective expertise we are able to undertake fine art framing, looking after your cherished, and very often valuable and irreplacable art.
Through our fully equipped workshops we can also cope with, and offer, commercial picture framing and contract picture framing services.
Proprietor Neil Duguid is one of the International Framing Committee and a former Director at the Fine Art Trade Guild therefore all picture framing is to Guild Standard framing guidelines and work is undertaken by one of the team of QUALIFIED picture framers.
We now boast five qualified and experienced framers on the team.
By default, we work at 'Commended' level, but are equally comfortably working at any level from Budget to Museum quality picture framing.
We offer many types of glazing, including Super Clear and UV Filtering, plus Museum picture framing glass, in addition to Art Grade clear acrylic glazing. This enables us to offer affordable solutions for items of nominal value, yet confidently undertake framing of valuable original paintings and frame artwork of high value.
We use the highest quality materials from trusted suppliers, and more importantly, through our collective wealth of experience (jointly over 90 years) know and understand how to do things properly.
Testamount to this is the example shown above, of the hand written letter from Napoleon Bonaparte to his troops, which we framed to Museum standards.
Similarly, the 'float mounted' framed print example, shows our creative ability.
Standard picture frame glass is fairly green in tinge due to presense of iron oxides. This spoils your view of the colour of the artwork.
Clear 'white' glass considerably enhanses the colours of your artwork, and we use this by default . This again sets us apart from other picture framers
We can frame both original work - prints - photographs - limited editions - original prints - certificates - cross stitch - tapestries etc.
No job too large, and advice is free.
Our workshops use the latest Image Visualisation Software enabling us to show a mock-up of framing solutions on screen and even by email. We can also supply commercial and corporate picture framing solutions to companies in and around Milton Keynes and North Bucks.
Our prices are competitive and we enjoy a high rate of customer recommendations and repeat work.
