Picture Framing

Every item brought in for picture framing at Blackhall Framing Gallery is unique, as is the location it will be hanging in.

We feel that your picture should be framed considerately for both your decor and the picture.

We believe that you should walk in to a framing shop and speak to someone who actually frames pictures, not a shop assistant who merely takes orders, that's why we have our workshop on site.

Our highly trained and professional picture framers will often ask you what soft furnishings and furniture you have in the room you intend to hang the item in. By asking these questions we are able to build a profile of the surroundings in which the item will be hung, and in turn we can help you make an informed decision on the best choice of frame, mount and glazing for your item.

Before we begin the  picture framing design process you are invited to indulge yourself with a complimentary hot beverage, so you can be as relaxed as possible while choosing a frame, mount and glass combination suitable for your artwork.

All picture framing is carried out on site by us in our own workshop using the finest quality cutting edge professional framing equipment, which is renewed on a regular basis. We simply won't compromise on quality and aim to produce a product of the highest standard.

All work that is produced in our workshop is personally overseen by Mary Case GCF - a Guild Commended Framer - Mary was the first picture framer in Edinburgh to attain Guild Commended Framer status.




We can frame watercolours of all shapes and size, we will frame them to suit your decor and taste, and in such a way that they are preserved for future generations to enjoy.

We recommend that watercolours are always framed with a mount and a UV blocking glazing option.

Prints & Photographs 

We are able to frame your prints and photographs in various different ways, each offering a varied level of protection for the future. We will advise you which method is suitable for the particular item you require framed.

We can frame almost every type of print or photograph. Including but not limited to :

Engravings, Etchings, Woodcut, Lithographic Open Edition Prints, Lithographic Limited Edition Print, Giclee Prints, Photographic Prints, Enlargements, Digital Prints, Photographs & Prints on Canvas, Screen Prints. etc..

Where appropriate, we will advise framing them in such a way that preserves the artwork in it's current condition for many years to come.

Oils & Acrylics

We will happily frame your oil and acrylic paintings, regardless of whether they are pre-stretched, unstretched or on board.

We can frame them with or without glass, to suit your taste and decor.

Perhaps you have an old oil or acrylic painting that needs a bit of restoration before it is reframed.  We can pass you on to our recommended conservator, who will best advise you of the action required to ensure your picture looks as good as the day it was painted.

If you have a canvas that simply needs to be stretched over stretcher bars we also offer that service.

Contact us for more details about any of the services which we offer.


Fabric Art 

Whether it is your favourite Needlepoint, or a cross / long stitch you have laboured over. We have the experience and ability to frame all of your fabric art items.

We will treat your items with care and frame them in a way they can be preserved for future generations to enjoy.

 Other Media

If you have something interesting or different and not covered in the categories, not to worry, we have framed thousands of different items of artwork over the years, and will be able to advise you on the best course of action for framing it.

Oversized Artwork

We always like a large challenge - Oversized Framing is one of those challenges.

Got something a little bit big that you need framed?

We can probably frame it for you!

Unlike some picture framers we won't shy away from a large picture, and enjoy the challenge in framing it!

We can source oversized glazing including glass and acrylic, and cut conservation and museum quality mounts up to 40 x 60 inches.

Please contact us with your requirements, and we'll be able to advise you further.
