It’s sometime since we have “Blogged” however Custom Frames remains as busy as ever with customer care as important as the quality picture framing. We have had many, many 5 Star positive reviews over the last year and should you wish to check-out what our customers say, go to Google Reviews..
Among some of the memorable jobs were race suits worn by Damon Hill, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. We also framed racing gloves worn by the late Ayrton Senna.
Other projects were Four pairs (his/hers) of ice skating costumes worn by Torvill and Dean the ones used in “Mack and Mabel, Paso Doble, Barnum and of course Bolero, picture shown just Paso Doble but if you wish to see the others go to our Gallery page via Portfolio, main page.
The most Precious (and expensive ) item (we didn’t frame but re-glazed with museum U.V glass) was a chalk board from the 1930’s used by Albert Einstein. Reputed to worth £64,000, glad to say it’s safely back with it’s owners !

Recently we worked in London at the T5 Building near Kings Cross /Granary Square producing framed artwork plus installation in this fabulous state of the art building designed as student accommodation for overseas scholars. This is the brainchild of the Aga Khan Foundation of whom we have more work coming up in the pipeline.

Earlier this year as some of you will know Cathy sadly left to go and work for The Jerry Green Dog Charity. Cathy not only a horse and dog lover but nearly all animals too couldn’t turn down this offer and is hard at work raising funds of which Custom Frames Ltd is happy to be a contributor. Well Done Cathy.
Taking over as Studio Manager is Michelle. After a short amount of intensive training Michelle (a fast learner) has picked up the mantel and now not only programmes and operates our computerised mount cutters, sets up work for the frame workshop but helps customers through the process of framing their artwork. We feel we are very lucky to have such an efficient team member at the forefront.
Roger a key production member of the team specialises in wood machining / carpentry as some of our projects can be a million miles away from standard picture framing. When asked Roger always steps up to the mark and delivers.
Dean our Production Manager oversees the day to day running of the workshop. He has been picture framing in the industry most of his working life and is one of the most experienced picture framers not only in Nottingham but possibly the country.
Alan Carlisle the Managing Director and founder of Custom Frames in 1992 not only runs the business but is very much hands on assuring standards remain the same as day one with customer care is the utmost importance. Should you have any queries Alan is always accessible to all customers if you need to contact him.
