At reid framing, we put a whole new perspective on bespoke framing services.

At Reid Framing we pride ourselves on our quality and service. 

With Bruce’s 30 years’ experience in picture framing, we offer expert advice and a friendly welcome. We won’t bamboozle you with all the fancy technical stuff (unless you want us to) but rest assured all our frames are constructed using the highest quality products for longevity bringing you superior results.

Based at Unit 19, The Teapot Studios, Hoults Yard, the one time location of  Mailings Pottery, Reid Framing has established its roots here since 1996 by Bruce Reid, building a reputation with artists, galleries, collectors and the public alike as the first stop for picture Framing in the North East.

Tucked away down the alleyway in what used to be Mailings ‘plate rooms’ our workshop is surrounded by an eclectic mix of local businesses from tech companies to cabinet makers and our neighbour the acclaimed Salon LRM hairdressers, with whom we share a communal entrance from the alleyway.

Our open plan framing workshop is a buzzing working environment. Pop down for a free consultation and quote, just ask for Allan or Bruce, you can even select some records on our resident juke box the ‘Disco 200’.

With a range of wood moulding from natural woods such as oak, beech and ash to hand tinted and stained frames, or traditional and modern guilt profiles plus aluminium profiles there is numerous combinations and possibilities to enhance and display your work.

Apart from our aluminium range we insist that all of our moulding are made of wood, we don’t use plastics, and wherever possible our mouldings are fsc certified.
