The Three Fishes Gallery and Framing is situated in the heart of picturesque Peebles in the Scottish borders, and provides an artist-friendly framing service for the local art community, specialising in watercolour, acrylics, oils, and other media.

Our artist and framer in residence, Jim Macdonald, is happy to help with any small or large order, and understands the difficulty in finding a good quality framer at a competitive price.


Here at The Three Fishes Gallery and Framing we're often asked to mount and frame important documentation such as this M.B.E., and there can no more effective way of presenting them than a simple shadow mount. Using deep rebated mouldings and 5 and 10 mm foamboard, we can transform a two-dimensional document into a three dimensional work of art. We have the time and imagination to help translate your ideas, so come and see what we can do!

Jim will work closely with you to get your frame just right and at a great price.



In a quandry as to what to do with all those old, cherished ticket stubs, programmes, setlists, autographs, memorobelia, newspaper clippings etc?


Well quander no more!  Look out all your precious scraps and take them to the Three Fishes Gallery and Framing, and bring them back to life by having them shadow mounted by our framer Jim Macdonald. Even the lowliest ticket stub can be  transformed using sourced tour material, poster art, photos etc. As you can see, the possibilities are endless!

  • There is so much more to framing than wood and glass.  The correct frame not only enhances a piece of art or displays a favourite sport shirt, photograph or needlepoint; it protects it from dust, dirt and environmental damage. With over 18 years experience of framing, our framer Jim will spend with you as much time as it takes for you to come to the right decision.  Offering advice on not only the aesthetics of a frame, Jim will advise you about how best to protect your piece of art, photograph, needlepoint etc.
  • There is a large selection of finished mouldings available from the traditional to the contemporary, we also use untreated mouldings which can simply be waxed or varnished to produce a natural look, or treated with wood stains, paints and gilt creams to enhance even the simplest and least expensive mouldings.  All mouldings are responsably sourced.

  • Also available is a wide range of mount boards and Jim can offer advice on the mounting and on the importance of using a mount to protect your piece as they should NEVER be placed directly against the glass.  Jim can also advise you on what type of glass would best protect your piece, non-reflective or UV glass (we would always recommended that any piece of art is kept out of direct sunlight as this can damage and fade them).  The Three Fishes Gallery offers a lifetime glass replacement guarantee, so don't worry if your glass gets broken when moving house, Jim at the Three Fishes Gallery will happily organise for it to be replaced.

  • All frames are guaranteed to be finished and ready to pick up within two weeks, and large bulky items can also be delivered anywhere in the Borders area (we can also send framed items anywhere in the UK p&p payable).

  • All this is available at extremely competitive prices.
