Customer Testimonials

  • I recently had a Chinese ink painting framed with UV filtration glass by Merlin, and I am very happy with the results. The frame is beautiful, and I can definitely see the difference with the UV filtration glass vs. many of my other works.

Behind the Scenes

Whilst many of our customers will be familiar with our outlets, many aspects of the framing magic also happens behind the scenes in our state of the art workshop that covers 6,000 sqft and contains countless pieces of technology to drive improved efficiency and precision in our frames.

We have a computerized mat board cutter from Switzerland, and specialist framing machines from France. Technology helps us deliver a better product, but framing still requires a significant amount of hands-on skill, and many of our craftsman are true masters of their trade, having been with Merlin Frame Maker for well over 20 years.
