Story

2011

2011

Canvas Frames was set up by David Loughran-Smith. For the first twelve months the business was run from Dave's family home in Sutton Coldfield.
2012

2012

Dave got the keys for the shop at 4 High St, Kings Heath on 5th September, and after a lot of work renovating the building, the shop was opened on 27th October, 2012. Dave lived in flat above the shop.
2013

2013

A young Kerry Smith came to work in the shop, doing part time hours whilst she studied at college.
2015

2015

In April 2015 the business rebranded as Precision Imaging, as we wanted people to recognise we offer much more than just prints on canvas. The product range continues to grow, and now includes photographic and fine art printing (including giclée printing), picture framing, pull-up banners, a full copyshop service and much more. Dave also joined BNI St. Paul's, a networking group which has greatly increased the variety of businesses that we supply.
2016

2016

Dave moved out of the flat above the shop which was converted into extra space for the business. The framing operation was relocated from Jez's premises and the lamination equipment helped to quickly fill the space that had been vacated. Eamon and Jorine both joined the business to work part time.
2017

2017

We started mass-producing picture frames for some local customers, and quickly adapted our framing offering to accommodate the specific needs of these high-volume clients. Dave set up 'Brand Your Office' with Jason Boden from Plan B Creative.
2018

2018

We saw a huge increase in the number of local artists using our scan and print services, with some wonderfully varied limited edition prints being produced.
2020

2020

The shop was forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we continued to trade serving both local and trade customers.

Building up succesful relationships with people you do business with is crucial. This of course takes ages as you develop trust first let those people deliver the best possible service to you. Nothing to add when it comes to passion that is also your job. Precision Imaging, the printing company which I order my prints from is a top end professional in their field and it it thanks to them that I look professional when I see my clients, editors and creative directors.

I would like to thank Precision Imaging for making my girlfriend very happy by putting together the frame for her best friend’s photo collage. She thought about going to IKEA and doing it herself, but you have saved her time, effort and produced a quality frame that matched the sentiment of the collage. Her best friend was suitably pleased and will have the gift on her wall for many, many years to come. I would highly recommend you to my friends and family.

I recently assisted a local charity in supporting a book launch and we decided to have a number of images from the book to be framed for an auction and raffle. We ordered a bulk of mounted and metal pictures. They duly arrived on time and looked fantastic. I would highly recommend Precision Imaging to anyone who requires top quality printing at a reasonable price!

I just wanted to express my thanks to Precision Imaging for completing the order for some of our new wall art for our new offices. It was seamless to be able to simply provide Precision Imaging with a copy of our corporate logo, and they did the rest. After approving the draft, the order was printed and delivered to me within a week. The service and pricing were better than other printers we have worked with before. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Precision Imaging.

Brendan Wincott | Technical Director Guardian Support

Precision Imaging successfully completed an order for an existing client of ours which needed completion within a very tight deadline. They produced the order for my clients within a few hours, enabling us to collect and deliver on the same day. Our client was delighted to say the very least and has already enquired regarding further works with us.

As a local artist, I have worked closely with Precision Imaging for several years. They have regularly carried out printing work for me over this time, mainly giclee prints. I have always found them to be very helpful, quick, efficient, knowledgeable and competitively priced.

I have spent a lot of money and time printing my fine art prints in many different places but nobody got it quite right. Us artists are obsessed with having all the fine tones and nuances of the original show on the prints as well. I found Precision Imaging, requested a sample print and couldn’t believe the accuracy and quality of the giclée print! I’ve exclusively printed with them for over a year now and can always trust that the result will be on point.

I’m very happy and so are my clients!
