  • I have just found a really good picture framing company on line they are quick and very very reasonable I got five mounts to fit an A4 print for the frames Terry recommended for the exhibition from Wilko.  They are well worth a look:  Brampton Picture Framing (www.bramptonframing.com). It is very rare for me to rate any shop so highly but their service is excellent. (Debs Axtell, Sept 2015)
