Superbly run family business!

I have been using Artcetera for years....they have supported my gradual development from amateur artist to Gallery owner and professional artist. I just want to thank them for their brilliant service over the years, understanding and patient attention to my request for advice on materials and framing. Their framing service is totally bespoke and utterly superb.

Worst customer Service I have ever experienced

I have used this shop once in the past and the person I dealt with was very helpful. I felt I needed to leave a review after my terrible experience shopping there today. I was seen to, by an extremely rude woman who really did not want to help me with purchasing some art materials that I needed. The lady was rushing me and making me feel like I was causing her a bother when taking my time to choose what products would be best. When it came time to pay, the card machine did not work so she snatched my Credit card out of my hand without a word and started entering my payment details into a mobile phone to process the order. I will never be going back to this shop again and will be looking for a different supplier for my art requirements from now on.

Excellent company

I have used this company a few times to frame my favourite posters and pictures. Makes them look so much better. They are value for money and go out of their way to get the right frame match. They framed a poster for my sons birthday the next day even though the shop was closed. Excellent local family business.

Great Professionals to work with

As a professional artist I've worked with these guys for over 10 years
and that important final finish their expertise gives to a painting can't ever be underestimated ; I'm happy to recommend them on every level.
