Peter and Jackie at Imagen run a first-class operation. We had some pictures we needed framing and Peter excelled in helping select the mount and frame. His diligence and impeccable attention to detail meant we got a fantastic finished result. The frame truly makes the picture, does not detract or overpower the picture, but enhances it.
Just as it should be. I have used Peter Armstrong for framing over many years for various bespoke pieces and serial pieces for exhibitions and have found him unflaggingly brilliant.
He has excellent aesthetic judgement, and for an artist this is important – it means I can entrust him with carrying out the work to a very high standard. Turning around winning solutions to my picture-framing needs, which are often quite challenging!
I recommend Imagen without reservation.

I have found Imagen exceptionally helpful when framing special items. They invariably have sensitive suggestions about colour and type of frame, mount and other details as well as being very sound on the technical aspects to do with glass, adhesives etc. I like the fact that they appreciate my pictures as much as I do and this contributes to the excellent result.

For an extremely personable and professional service, offering sound advice and having a good eye for detail.

I wanted to thank you for the perfect framing you did for my Laetitia Yhap pictures. The oval mounts and the more regular framing were all beautifully executed and suit the engravings and screenprint exactly. Both pictures are unique and rare and you have produced a mount that shows them off without detracting from their sensitive nature. It is a pleasure any time I look at them on my wall.
Again, many thanks. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who has a favourite picture to be framed, however valuable.
Mark French, Film maker, Hastings
I can highly recommend the award-winning framers, Imagen, in Hastings. The gallery stocks a specialist range of art materials and offers a first-class service for artists, designers and anyone who wants to frame work for display. Not only is the framing beautifully finished with quality materials and excellent craftsmanship, but also lots of friendly and professional advice is freely given about the best choice of frames and mounts for the artwork, photography or poster. Having tried many framers in the past who have not always been reliable, Imagen always completes framing to the highest standards within the timescale requested and at competitive prices. I would never take my paintings anywhere else to be framed.

After 20 years in a cheap clip frame, my Royal Opera House poster of Joan Sutherland in Donizetti’s Anna Bolena has been transformed. ‘I think Dame Joan deserves rather better,’ said Peter Armstrong of Imagen. Now she is resplendent in a gold leaf frame which is indeed fit for a queen.
