Pictureframes of Shaftesbury Ltd

Hope Elletson started a picture framing business in his garden shed in Salisbury, in 1989. Soon after starting, he moved into a large workshop in an old grain store on a working farm where he built the business for the next ten years. The first version of Pictureframes.co.uk went live in 1997 at which point it was the only picture framing website in the UK.

The company moved to its current location on the Wincombe Business Park in Shaftesbury in 2000 and started a fine art and photographic printing service alongside the framing services in 2006.

PictureFrames works for private customers, artists, galleries and corporate customers which have included Disney, P&O Cruises, Guinness World Records, Buckingham Palace and Rolls Royce Motor Cars.

We are very proud to be the only full-service Bespoke Picture Framing and Printing Company in the world that is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.

Not ones to remain hidden behind a telephone or computer, our premises have been open to customers for many years. Our reputation as expert professional picture framers has grown. We have found that more and more people will travel large distances to talk to us face to face. Our regular customers come from all over Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset.

We have our own large, custom fitted van in which we deliver to/collect from London every week on a Wednesday. The van can accommodate a picture up to 11ft x 6ft: we’ve had to hire on a few occasions when we’ve made frames bigger than this! If our pick up/delivery service interests you find out more here.
