Re: Windows 8.1

I am using BBEst and have upgraded to Windows 10, but every time it opens I get this message (see attached photo). It doesn't stop it working, it's just a bit annoying! Is there any way around it?

For Sale: 11"x14" Children's Prints & Print Display Spinner

I'm just in the process of giving up trying to be a gallery (I'm not in a town centre location) and concentrate on the framing business. I have a selection of Children's prints on display in a spinner that is for sale if anyone might be interested. There are about 70 prints remaining, of Maisie the ...

Re: Paperweights

I have a shower screen manufacturer near me, and on a recent clearance day I failed to find a new shower but bought glass bathroom shelves for £1 each instead - 38cm long, heavy, nice smooth edges, toughened glass and a bonus being see through when there's no border on images. I have some small roun...

Re: Name that Moulding!

It looks like the plain black version of Simons 1229 (it's the same but just has a gold line on the sight edge), but it looks like the plain one (which did have quite a blue hue to it) has been pulled as it doesn't appear in the latest catalogue. I'd say the Arqadia one was the same thing but it is...

Name that Moulding!

I have another customer trying to match a moulding that they have had several pictures framed in previously, and I can't see it in A&T, Arqadia or Lion - does anyone else recognise it from somewhere else? It's very very dark blue, but probably looks black in the photos. Any clues would be much appre...

Re: Wanted: A&T Discontinued Moulding

This is a photo of my old scruffy chevron, it's about 55mm wide. Second pic is from A&T of the smaller version that is still available.

Wanted: A&T Discontinued Moulding

Hello,
Just on the off chance, does anyone have any old 5438.7552 lurking in their workshops? I think it was discontinued a while ago, but it's a personal request, I'm trying to match one of my own frames! I only need around 3 metres, and I'm in Leicestershire.
Thanks for looking!

Re: Wide matt black moulding sought!

Thanks for the messages. The Arqadia moulding suggested is only 60mm wide though, looking for something bigger!

I will call on Monday Tim, thanks.

Wide matt black moulding sought!

I have a customer who would like his painting framed in a wide simple profile black frame but I can't find anything to match his request. I have looked at A&T, Arqadia & Lion with no joy. Ideally he would like something 80-90mm matt black finish (or bigger but it would have to be available on chop) ...

Re: Brass Plaque Suppliers

I've always used http://www.warwickcrystal.co.uk/shop/engraving/eng01.htm and been very happy with the results. Used my local Timpson once when I was in a hurry and wasn't too excited by the price or finish. Warwick Crystal have a good range of colours, sizes and fonts and delivery within 2 or 3 day...

Hello, Does anyone know if 12x16 Ivory Oval Swept Frames exist? Arqadia do Gold Swept or Plain Ivory but not Ivory Swept. And yes, I have thought of spraying a gold one but I'm never keen on doing things like that if I can buy one ready made! The customer is starting to sway towards a gold frame any...

Re: Honesty

Over zealous lady was so impressed with them back at the office, she opened them all, stacked them up and rushed in to show the boss... Four new sides later, she apologetically collected the two dama...
