Picture Framers in Leicester

Picture Framers in Leicester since 1898Gadsby’s have been framing pictures in Leicester for more than 100 years. Recently we looked at the options for offering framing services online. We decided that, although it is possible, for most of our customers something important would be lost in the process.

People come to Gadsby’s, the picture framers  in Leicester, because they find that the help they receive improves the finished framed article considerably. There can be more to ‘getting something framed’ than simply the choice of colour and style of the frame although that is often seen as the first and most important choice.

When you get something framed through an online process you can’t touch the moulding. Nor can you readily compare the colour matching of the image, the proposed frame and the mounts – in daylight and under a variety of artificial lights. You can’t have a face-to-face discussion with someone who is seeing and holding your picture or artefact and who understands what it means to you.

Sometimes you don’t need the added value of an expert helping you navigate through the many choices you have to make when getting something framed – in those circumstances getting the article framed through an online process is a viable option. Alternatively of course, you can do it yourself using a ready made frame which Gadsby’s also supply. Visit the picture framers in Leicester – Gadsby’s.
