Thank you so much Steve for going the extra mile on the frame for our beautiful print for our new home! It looks wonderful and we are so thankful.
I was thrilled with the way my cross stitch picture was framed by Steve. The framing certainly does justice to the length of time it took me to complete the sewing. It looks fantastic in our dining room. Thank you Steve.
Excellent service! We have used Steve's services many times in the past for a range of framing needs and have always been delighted with the results.
Steve readily provides advice and guidance if asked, his work is always of the highest standard and always ready for collection prompt on the due date.
Easy to find his premises and no parking problems !
Steve was recommended by a friend. So glad I took my two pictures to him for framing - I'm delighted with the results. Good value and a really professional finish. Little felt pads on the back of the frame so it doesn't scratch your decorations - never seen that before. He even provided hangers to get them up on the wall. Will definitely pass on the recommendation.
Recently had 10 posters framed by Steve, highly recommend, they look amazing, good price and great friendly service.
In the past few years we have had several pictures framed by Steve & we have been highly delighted with the quality of his work.
The latest item was a large jigsaw which required considerable expertise.
He is helpful,courteous & patient when dealing with us dithering over exactly which of his vast array of frames to choose & he always charges a very fair price.
Bought a poster which I thought would be easy to get a frame for. So wrong. Took it to Steve who framed it beautifully. So please with the finish and with the price. Looks great on my wall. Thank you very much Steve will highly recommend you to family and friends.
Thanks Steve really happy with the framing job you did for me. Service provided prompt, professional and value for money. Will definitely contact you next time i have something to frame.
I had 2 football shirts and some other football memrobilia to be framed.Steve was a great help with the choice of frames and colours.
I picked them up yesterday and was absolutely delighted with the finished articles.
Great job Steve,would highly recommend and definitely use again.
Got my stretched Canvas back today & I absolutely love it!! Steve was fantastic, went the extra mile to make sure it was perfect! Really impressed & I recommend Steve 100%
Steve made my first experience of framing relaxed, interesting and enjoyable. He worked with me to make sure I got a finished product that I was happy with. I am very pleased with the end result. I would definitely recommend Steve.
I have known Steve for a number of years now and he has framed, reframed, reglazed and/or cleaned more than 20 pictures for me. In all cases, he has dedicated himself to understanding exactly what I want, giving knowledgeable advice, and doing the job with skill and great attention to detail. He is a delight to work with and I really appreciate his approach and attitude, with a good sense of humour, patience, flexibility and the ability to think outside the box. His prices are extremely reasonable and he always produces wonderful results. I cannot recommend Steve too highly.
Steve's prices are very affordable and he guided me through all the options available, giving honest opinions of what would and wouldn't work. It was a difficult process to get the colours and frame just right but Steve displayed great patience! I've just picked my picture up and I was completely over the moon.
Steve was recommended by a number of my contacts and I recently got in touch regarding the framing of three paintings that I bought many years ago and a frame and a mount that I was trying to match for artwork for one of my own customers. Steve was so helpful in sourcing an exact match for my customer. The mount and the frame I subsequently collected were excellent and the three paintings he framed for me look wonderful. I am delighted and I am so pleased that I have met such a great framer and such a great person. Thank you so much.
Thanks Steve another great job sensively framing a papyrus with much attention to detail and good advice with the mount and frame.
I have just collected 4 newly framed paintings from Steve. As usual they are first class. I will be proud to hang them at York Open Studios this weekend.
Steve mounted and framed two trawler prints for me and having collected them today I am so impressed with his work and his abundant choice of framing materials that I just have to tell the world. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and would recommend him completely. Thanks Steve for a fabulous job.
Thanks so much for an excellent framing of two crossstitch pieces. I am in awe of your skills at stretching and lining up of the fabric. Thanks also for finding exactly the mount that I wanted. I will be back very soon.
We had two jobs for Steve to do - an overhaul repair of a large frame dating from 1913, and a new framing. We are very pleased with both. The overhaul restored the family heirloom into a condition sound enough for generations to come, and the new framing turns out to be just right for where it hangs, thanks to Steve's guidance in the selection. The precision and care with which he works is outstanding. Also, he is very pleasant to deal with, and his prices are lower than we expected. Happy to recommend him to all our friends!

Just had 8 pictures framed by Steve. He was happy to advise on styles and colours and the finished results are superb. He even supplied wall hooks to hangs them! Good price too.

We took two pictures to be framed - the first being a rather wrinkled gift from Myanmar (Burma) painted onto white cotton sheeting material. Steve has stretched it and carefully affixed it onto a firm backing. The mount complements it perfectly and the whole picture has been expertly framed. The second picture was a pastel which had been rolled-up in a cardboard tube for six months. Steve has double mounted and skilfully framed the picture - no mean feat, as the pastels had not been sealed or sprayed. Steve was extremely helpful, gave good advice, is inexpensive and the result is exactly what we wanted. We have used other framers in York but Steve's quality, professional finish is unbeatable. We would recommend his exceptionally good framing services to everyone.

Thanks Steve for supplying and fiiting the special glass I wanted for my frames, and finishing them off so professionally. It's great to know you're there to help out and our photos now look splendid hung on the walls. Great quality, friendly and flexible service at a reasonable price. I will certainly recommend you to friends and come to ou next time.

Beautiful result on four works for an upcoming exhibition. This is the first time I have used Steve's framing service, a lovely guy with helpful and creative ideas, and accommodating when on a budget. Steve's new location is a brilliant asset, the only framer north of York centre that I am aware of, Steve's service is an opportunity to avoid town traffic and exorbitant city prices. A personal service and feel-good factor in supporting a local business, thanks Steve!
Thursday 07 Jul 2016
I have just used Steve for the first time to have four pictures mounted and framed, and am extremely pleased with the results. Steve is very helpful and professional and his prices are great. I would highly recommend Steve, and will definitely use him again for any future framing.
Monday 29 Feb 2016
I have just had a second embroidery picture framed and Steve used a double mount so that the stitches are not squashed; it is a super job, with one mount being coloured to match the picture it really enhances my embroidery. This was also done to match a previous piece of work that Steve framed for me three years ago and as he had all the details on file it matches perfectly. His care with the fabric and attention to detail is superb.
Wednesday 27 Jan 2016
Steve made an excellent job of framing this print. He recommended the best method for framing the print and I was very pleased with the result. He did this quickly and for a very reasonable price. I would willingly recommend him and will use him again in the future.

The framing done on this water colour was excellent and enhanced the painting enormously

I was lucky enough to get one of the Tower of London poppies and took it to Steve along with an old photo of my great uncle who was killed at the Somme. I had no clear idea of how I wanted them displayed but Steve was extremely helpful and guided me through the choices. Today I collected the finished piece and I am over the moon with it. The poppy and photograph are displayed beautifully, and they combine together to make a poignant piece of art. I can't thank Steve enough, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to everyone. I certainly won't be going anywhere else in future!
Sunday 26 Jul 2015
Steve has framed many pictures for me both large & small. Guided by his advice on frames with a large selection to choose from we have always had a lovely framed picture on their return. The price is always right & he is a true professional, courteous doing a good job always. Steve comes to my home no trip to town with parking fees to pay another plus for me. I would wholeheartedly highly recommend Steve to anyone needing a good job doing without paying town prices & would never contemplate ever going anywhere else now for my work to be done. Thank You Steve !!!
Wednesday 24 Jun 2015
Steve has now framed five pictures for me and has done a great job each time. The frames and mounts he suggested were perfect in each case, with excellent results. Fast, friendly and efficient personal service - I thoroughly recommend him.
Tuesday 19 May 2015
Thanks Steve, for such a lovely job framing two crosstitch pictures for me, and I know one was particularly difficult. Great service and I would definately recommend you to others.
Just picked my photo up of my great grandson from Steve which he as framed for me, I cannot recommend Steve enough for the brilliant job he as done, this is the second time I’ve used Steve but it certainly won’t be the last. Thank you Steve.
Steve was extremely helpful when I was choosing my frames. The pictures were ready on time and look great. (And he is such a nice man!)
Steve framed 6 pictures for me recently. These involved a variety of sizes and frames. I am delighted with the finished pictures. He has lined everything up perfectly - this was really important as 4 are hung in a line along a wall and so any difference would stand out. Steve is busy but completed everything to the deadline he agreed at the start. The framing is really nicely finished. I would definitely recommend him and will be using him again when I have anything new to frame.
Steve framed a precious print for me. He was full of suggestions about the best way to mount it, as well as the type of glass. I heeded all his advice & now have a stunning picture on my wall. I cannot recommend him highly enough & I shall definitely use him again in the future.
Please don’t wait years like I did to have a special treasure framed, go to Steve right away! He has just framed my very old but beautiful animal print scarf and it looks amazing it is absolutely perfect I’m over the moon happy! Thank you Steve.
Delighted with the quality of Steve's work. Attention to detail throughout.
After trying several picture framers we were lucky enough to find Steve. He has a very wide selection of high quality frames, but most importantly his standard of craftsmanship and materials is very high. With careful framing and mounting he has restored 11 of our old, in some cases quite battered, frames and mounts and the pictures have really been brought back to life. His advice on the materials, colours, and styles was invaluable and demonstrated great sympathy for the wide range of styles of picture we had. We are delighted with the results without exception. We will be taking a number more of our pictures in for Steve to reframe in the near future. In our view, and having spoken to and seen a number of other framers before we chose Steve, we have found his prices to be extremely competitive for the very high quality of work he does.
I have recently had my first painting framed by Steve. His framing is fantastic and is really helpful with advice on framing types and colours that will compliment the artwork. I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a friendly professional picture framing service.
We were fortunate to see an advertisement for Steve and glad we did. He is an extremely nice chap. Competent, reliable and very good at his trade and charges a reasonable price. He is also good at making suggestions on what would improve our product as he did again recently.
Thank goodness I found Steve! I had a rush job for a commission and had tried several framers unsuccessfully. Steve was extremely helpful and willing to take on a complicated job. After speaking on the phone I knew I was in good hands. Picked up the frame this week, very professional work. Thank you Steve, I will be back.
Steve framed two deep slightly misshaped canvases for me and made them look fantastic.
He carried out the work quickly professionally and for a good price.
It was also a pleasant experience doing business with him.
Thanks Steve for your patience in helping me make the right decisions to produce such brilliant results.
Steve has completed 3 pieces of work for me and I am delighted with the quality of his work and would definitely recommend him .
First class framing service. Finished frames well presented and packaged with added convenience easy access and parking.
I bought a Lucy Pittaway print for my bedroom and asked Steve to frame it for me. I have just picked it up and felt I had to write a review straight away. He has done a fantastic job of the framing to my exact requirements and at a price that I was very pleased with. 5 stars and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his work and to use his services again.
We can’t recommend Steve highly enough. He has framed several pictures for us and we have always been delighted with the work he has done. Steve’s advice is invaluable and if you are unsure about the colour of mount, or the type of frame he will gladly help. He has many samples to choose from, ensuring that your picture is displayed in the best way. Whatever you need framing Steve will give you friendly, professional service.
I have been taking pictures to Steve for a few years and I am always very pleased with the results. He is always very helpful and professional. Highly recommended for all of your framing needs!
Now had several pictures and photos framed by Steve. Friendly, professional service and Steve gave us good advice regarding the type and colour of the mounts to enhance the pictures. Accurate framing and very happy with the pricing !

Friday 10 Feb 2017
Thank you again Steve for providing such an informed service when choosing the right frames for my paintings. The quality of your work is brilliant and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
Wednesday 12 Oct 2016
Many thanks for so quickly and skilfully not only repairing but improving the framing of a much treasured embroidered fire screen. This was the first time I had met Steve and will certainly recommend his skills to other people I know who want embroidered items well mounted and framed
Monday 25 Jul 2016
I've just collected and hung a pair of linocuts that Steve framed for me and they are perfect! I wanted them in floating frames and Steve advised me on how this could be done to give the effect I wanted. Thank you.
Saturday 28 May 2016
Steve has done repeat business for us in framing our pictures. We have always been happy with his door to door personal service.
Monday 08 Feb 2016
Found Steve after doing a local search on the Internet. We wanted to have an album framed for our sons 18th birthday that had been signed by the artist. After a conversation with Steve I knew he was the person I wanted to do this. His pricing was very competitive and his vision on how he wanted to do the framing was fantastic, a lot more imaginative than some of the other so called 'bigger boys'. As expected the result was fantastic and now has pride of place on the wall. Would recommend all day long and will definitely be using again.
Tuesday 19 Jan 2016
Steve framed a print of Jersey, which I chose for my son's Christmas present. He did an excellent job and I'm really delighted with what he has done. I will definitely use him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
Sunday 29 Nov 2015
Steve has been framing my pastel artwork for the last year (which there has been quite a lot, of all shapes and sizes) he always does a brilliant job, has a great choice of frames and mounts and is professional and helpful. I will not go anywhere else for my framing and can't recommend him enough.
Wednesday 21 Oct 2015
I arrived with a whole host of different pictures and lots of out of the ordinary requests! Steve was great - patience, professional and willing to think outside the box. Furthermore the pictures all look great :o)
Saturday 27 Jun 2015
Very happy with my picture it also came with hooks to hang it up and a little rope attached on the back, round cusions on the corner of the picture to protect your wall.I would recommend steve garnett to anyone as he does a very good job.
Monday 22 Jun 2015
I have to echo the previous comments. Steve framed a rugby shirt for my husband and it was excellent and half the price I had been quoted in town! I will definitely be using Steve again amd I would recommend him to everyone, thanks Steve.
Tuesday 09 Jul 2013
Steve framed a signed football shirt for my my fiance's birthday gift. The results are stunning; I couldn't have imagined how good it would look and, needless to say, the football fan was blown away! Steve is professional, friendly, courteous, helpful, creative and a true craftsman. His suggestions on how the frame should be done for the best results were spot on and the price was right. I highly recommend Steve and will definitely use him again. Thank you, Steve!
Friday 21 Jun 2013
Thank you so much Steve for framing my Dad's medals. We were all so happy with the finished result. It was a first class job. I will recommend you to my friends.
Saturday 19 Jan 2013
I have just Had four pictures framed by Steve , very pleased with the quality and care taken , great price and a nice friendly guy .
Beautifully framed one of my favourite artists pieces. An array of frames to choose from and Steve helped me contrast between the artwork and frame. Non reflective glass was also a great finishing touch enhancing the quality. Soft pads on the back to stop markings on the wall and hooks were also included. Will definitely use again and highly recommend Steve’s professional and friendly manner.
Steve recently framed several of my paintings and as always they were expertly done. Nothing is too much trouble for Steve and he is very patient when I dither and change my mind. He always has suggestions to help me make my choices. I would not use any other framer.
I recently had a 1000 piece jigsaw framed by Steve and its absolutely amazing. Great quality work at great price. Thanks very much Steve I love the work you did.
Steve was recommended to us when we had three artworks from the York Open Studios to frame. A great personal service, Steve has a good eye in helping customers choose frames and mounts. Prices are very reasonable and the quality first class
We discussed exactly how I wanted my print framed, colour of the wood, the mount and the positioning. You advised on the best Glass to use. I was very precise about the look and even required information transferred to the reverse. When I collected the framed picture I was delighted with the result. It looks absolutely stunning and I couldn't be more pleased. The job was completed in a shorter time than expected which was a bonus.
If there was a star rating I would be giving five stars. Thank you, I will recommend your work to my friends and will be more than happy to ask you to frame further items when needed.
Had original pictures passed down to us that were already framed/glazed. Due to the position on the wall, we wanted a more non reflective glass. Having discussed options with other framing/glazing suppliers, it was clear from initial telephone conversation with Steve that he knew his job. His prices were far cheaper as well. Got Steve to re-glazed in top of the range Artglass AR70. We were not disappointed. Excellent finished product. Steve is down to earth and eager to please. Would highly recommend.
Just had 3 Lake District prints framed by Steve. Fantastic, professional job. Thoroughly delighted with the finished product. Many thanks.

I cannot thank Steve enough for framing a cross stitch picture at very short notice ready for my daughter's birthday.
The colours for the mount and frame that Steve avised were perfect. The framing was so well done and complete with hanging fittings!
If I need anything framing again I would ask Steve to do it...no hesitation.
We have just collected our four pictures from Steve and I am delighted with them. I would recommend Steve 100% as he was very professional and gave lots of advice on which frame would work best. The finished pictures are stunning and we will certainly use his service again.
What a difference!
Steve has just framed an oil painting and a photo for me and I am delighted with the results. I have had the painting since 1984 and the old frame was disintegrating. It is not valuable but is very precious to me so I was wary of entrusting it to anyone but Steve put me at ease on my first visit and spent the time to understand what I wanted. His range of frames is amazing and he soon came up with the perfect one to set off the seascape.
He also framed a large photograph which is utterly transformed. I was stunned at the difference the colour and size of the mount can make. We tried several of the sample frames before finding one which picked up a shade from the photo. This kind of attention to detail is priceless.
I was anxious to see the finished pictures but I needn't have worried: they are now ready to hang and Steve even gave me the hangers to finish the job! He provides an excellent service and I am happy to recommend him if you have a picture which needs framing.
Thank you so much for doing a superb job framing my large print. I was very pleased with your quick service and your very competitive price. Will not hesitate to recommend you.
Very pleased with my picture that needed to be reframed. Very professional & excellent service. Would highly recommend.
So pleased to have discovered Steve. He is very pleasant, professional and helpful. I am extremely happy with his work and I have no hesitation in highly recommending him. I certainly would not go to anyone else, should I require any framing to be done in the future. Many thanks Steve from a very grateful customer..
Excellent customer service!
I had the glass replaced on a large framed print. Steve provided great advice re the type of glass available, the order was completed in express time, and I’m really pleased with the finished product. Highly recommend!
Nothing phases this man! My wonky canvas is to be taken off the frame and reframed. Brilliant
Thank you Steve for framing my latest paintings, so expertly done. They look really good. The backs are as good as the fronts! My paintings are now in an exhibition.
Monday 01 May 2017
You will not find a more talented picture framing expert than Steve. The attention to detail is top class.
Wednesday 01 Mar 2017

Monday 22 Jun 2015
Steve framed a collection of photographs my mum had assembled last year for my grandad's wake, they had stayed on the same plastic board ever since! As a result some of the very old photographs had curled up quite drastically! I took the board round to steve in hope of having them framed as a christmas present. It was a big job and we had just about a week until christmas and he still assured me it would be done before then! We discussed how I would like it and the consultation was brilliant!!!! I received the frame 3 days before christmas and it was beautiful, each picture had been individually stuck down and mounted before going onto the background. It looked so smart and yet still so personal. My mum cried upon receiving it and is delighted. Thank you Steve! I would highly recommend Steve, it was a good price and the friendly and understanding customer service is something I believe you wouldn't get in town, and invaluable!
Thursday 26 Dec 2013
Beautiful framing at good prices, Thank You Steve...I am looking at the Canada Geese as I type this email..'.Stunning' and just the perfect frame thanks to your suggestion. I have more pictures and will be in touch soon. Collection and delivery is a Bonus! I have no hesitation in recommending you.
