n the last year i have used Carlo and his framing service 6 times. I have taken to him a collection of my most precious and personal pictures all of which he has framed perfectly. He is happy to work with old frames, delicately reconstructing them and replacing glass. I love that he has such a good eye and even more i love the wonderful way he treats even the most worn old children's drawing with the same respect and care he would an expensive piece of art! Nothing is too much trouble and he is always willing to go the extra mile even when i know he has been busy. I don't write reviews good or bad for anyone but for Carlo i wanted to say this. More people should use small shops like his and support the high street by not going to superstores to buy cheaper frames. He prices fairly and the materials he uses are first rate. If you have time get him into a conversation because you will always walk out of his shop feeling happy that you went in there.
I have used them on a few occasions and always found them honest and helpful. But to the point.
Good value for money, and you can often park outside to make the collection.
I have been going to Carlos for frames for the last five years. Always friendly, professional, making really good suggestions. The work is always delivered on time and to a really high standard. I am at a loss at some of the negative comments here as I don't recognise the description of the service or the work. Cannot recommended highly enough.
Strange how two of the one star reviews both happened on the same say and neither reviewer went into any detail about the issues.
I have engaged this business in work since the mid 80s and think they do a great job on glazing and framing.
Having broken a pane of glass above my front door, I got on the phone sharpish and rang half a dozen places for quotes. A & B were friendly, came out extremely well priced, but above all were honest and helpful.
Somebody turned up the next day, carried out the job faster than expected, with no fuss made. Suffice to say the workmanship was top notch.
As I say, thoroughly nice people to deal with.
Avoid. I was given a 2 week completion date for the picture framing I wanted done for my partner’s birthday. When I came to pick it up it was not done, not even started on. The man who served me was indignant when I asked why they didn’t at least call me to say it would not be ready as promised. He said he would not waste his time calling his customers. I was puzzled. He then told me I was the problem as I was unable to wait another week. I took my painting elsewhere.
Terrible in so many ways. Rude, really obnoxious, suggestions were naff. They were helpful to begin with but then never completed the work. Weird place.
If you are looking for bespoke picturing framing in East London you could not find a better service than the one provided by Carlos who has his studio within the A&B Glassworks shop. For 10 years now he has patiently and expertly advised me on the best frame choices and then produced the highest quality frames. Text messages to advise when your pictures are ready to collect makes the whole service so easy to use and you can see that Carlos operates to the highest professional standards possible.
I have used this company on several ocassions for both galss and framing and have found them to be friendly and reliable at all times. The business has been there years and they are very experienced and knowledgable.
I have had all my prints framed over a period of several years. I love this place - Carlos always takes the greatest care- he has a great eye and always makes thoughtful, intuitive suggestions and the framing is always perfect and as described. I’ve found some real gems in the selection of prints for sale, too, which are very reasonably priced. I can’t fault it!
Two businesses in the shop, so to be clear this is for the Framers, who are great. Carlos is super friendly and really knows what he's doing... Definitely worth taking the time to listen to his thoughts on how it should be framed. He's done upwards of 10x prints/photos for us now and his suggestion have been on the money every time.
