Heritage Craft Association
We have recently joined the Heritage Craft Association, whose views and aims accord with mine own.

Much of what I have seen in the past few years has been a proliferation in "fast framing" and rather like their namesake within the food industry, it tends to leave us unsatisfied after a short while.
The materials used in our workshop are proven to both last and protect.....and often are very similarly priced to the mass produced stuff. What I cannot do though is downgrade to try and match on price.
If something is worth framing, then it is worth doing well.
