Framing for Everyone

Black Dog Pictures and Framing is a company who don't like to say no. We are asked to frame many different items, examples including a silver painted plaster cast of a baby's foot, and old sheets metal workers tools. The framing of watercolours, prints and photographs, the stretching and framing of oils, the stretching and framing of tapestries and embroideries, the framing of all types of memorabilia, including sports shirts and equipment, medals, tools, cards, old rail tickets etc. are all part of our all encompassing service.

Supporting the picture framing requirements of Ruthin and North Wales, we stock a small selection of framing mouldings, and have speedy access to hundreds of different styles, colours, sizes and textures. We offer a wide range of mounts, in varying colours and thickness, from basic to conservation, with different colour cores and textures. We can also provide a variety of glazing - basic glass. non-reflective, non-glare with or without UV protection, museum, laminated, and a selection of perspex. We are also happy to supply mounts only, and reglaze when accidents happen.

Our recent installation of computerised mount cutting machinery has helped us to deliver an outstanding range of mounting options in all shapes and sizes with a plethora of embellishments and has helped us to develop a new and refined range of services.

We Have Reduced Our Opening Hours

With retirement looming later in the year. 8 successful years in the shop, for which I thank all my customers, but the time has come to hang up the framers' mantle, and head for the hills. The shop is now open from 10:00 to 16:00 Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.


If anyone knows of anybody who wishes to become a self-employed picture framer, I shall be selling all of my equipment, tools, stock, well everything for £10K. This will include a computerised Wizard 9000 mount cutter, a Morso F frame cutter, a Cassese 88 Underpinner, and a Keencut Ultimat Gold manual mount cutter. I can assure anyone who might be interested that this is a very good price, and they will have everything necessary to set up a framing business.
