Chop & pin service.


This service provides you with all the things you need to frame your own work to a professional standard, without the need for expensive machinery. We make the frames to your specified dimensions and hand them over to you as they are, i.e. unfinished, bare wood.

We can supply all of the parts you will need - moulding, backing boards, mounts, glass, hanging rings & cord, etc.

Your frames will have precision-cut mitred corners, and will be neatly glued and underpinned.

You save money by decorating the frames and assembling the contents yourself.

If you supply your own moulding we charge a flat rate per frame, regardless of size.



We offer a collection and delivery service to artists and galleries in our local area of West Cornwall.

Carriage within mainland UK is also available. A minimum quantity applies to orders containing glass so that we can make up the package safely for transport.

Rates vary according to the value of your order and weight of the parcel.
