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 it’s 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 include Disney, P&O Cruises, Guinness World Records, Kate Bush, Buckingham Palace and Rolls Royce Motor Cars.
