I met Cath in March and couldn't have been happier to find a local picture framer. As a photographer I had been sending my framing to a company in Shropshire, which involved queuing at the Post Office to send the prints off then a minimum of three weeks turnaround on all framing orders.I was at the point of looking for a new supplier who could give me a more personal service, and then I met Cath.Cath patiently listened to my requirements and helped me work out a bespoke range of framing options for my customers and also supplied me with a set of samples to display in my studio. Seven months down the line and Cath's framing is providing very popular with my customers. Her attention to detail and fast turn around means I can meet tighter deadlines and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Emerald Framing to anyone.

I have a very large picture, the frame of which had been damaged by a removals company. Given the size of the picture and not having suitable transportation, knowing how to get it resolved had been a major headache. I was also dreading the cost involved in re-framing and so had left it for almost two years. Such a shame as my heart sank every time I looked at my beautiful painting. Cath from Emerald came highly recommended and I made an appointment for her to do an assessment of the damage. To my disbelief and utter joy she actually repaired it there and then! It only took a few minutes and her talent and it was all as good as new! I really cant recommend her enough; she was very practical, down to earth and I appreciated her honesty in suggesting that it might be possible to fix the frame so easily. I wish I?'d met her two years ago!!

Cath framed one of my paintings which was 2'x2' oil on board. She took a lot of time and patience with me when choosing the frame, showed a great interest and was incredibly helpful in getting the 'look' just right. I would recommend her very highly to anyone. - Karen Hunt

Cath is passionate about her craft and provides a quality picture framing service. As a person she is driven, tenacious and a pleasure to a deal with.
- Danielle Stroud

Cath framed my favourite wedding picture; She was very professional and understanding as I don't have an artistic nature and was unsure of what frame to choose. We talked about the decor in the room it would be hung and with her years of experience she was able to advise me on the most fantastic frame. It is a pleasure to look at and makes me smile. Thank you so much!
- Jacqui Bell.

I asked Cath to produce a monster of a mirror for me which she did and it was excellent and reasonable. She also framed a picture that had huge sentimental value for me that previously was in the loft - now it looks so good it is pride of place on the wall.
- June Dean

Cath is an excellent framer; she discussed the project with me beforehand, gave advice, gave an estimated completion date and stuck to it. She has framed pictures and photographs for me as well as repairing water damaged work. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

I have asked Cath to help me with my favourite painting, which hangs above the fireplace. Because it is my favourite one, I was
worried about the effects of the open fire on it. Cath really knows her trade very well and was able to suggest a great solution, which she expertly (and promptly!) carried out. The service was exemplary - the quality of work, the speed and the cost - if only every other customer service was like that!

- Romi Carr.

Just to let you know the frame arrived today and its perfect. Thanks for all your help, I'll be sure to recommend you and your fabulous service and skills to anyone with framing needs!
