A LITTLE HISTORY
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.
PictureFrames moved into new build industrial units on Wincombe Business Park in 2000
In 2013 PictureFrames became the first and only Bespoke Picture Framing and Printing company in the World to be Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified.
In 2022 Pictureframes Onward Ltd started trading with a goal to aid the main company, PictureFrames of Shaftesbury Ltd, in becoming as sustainable as possible. Solar panels will be fitted to the factory and warehouse rooves at the end of the year, and plans are afoot for plastic free packaging and vastly reduced waste.
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.
