About Us

Established in 2001, the company takes its name and guiding core values of Creativity, Craftsmanship and Professionalism from its founder Chris Saltmarshe.

Initially trained in Architectural Design and then later in Marketing, Chris gained considerable experience in senior management in a number of print technology companies before combining his extensive knowledge of digital print with his creative talents and his business acumen, to set up and lead our design focused business into the arena of Art publishing.  Specialising in Welsh photography & art, the business flourished providing limited edition art prints to galleries across the UK.

In the pursuit of the highest quality, Saltmarshe has a policy of undertaking all aspects of production in-house.  As part of this policy the company brought under its wing, the family framing business in 2004, transferring decades of wood craftsmanship from father to son, while extending its capabilities with regular purchases of high-tech equipment to aid better accuracy and efficiency.

Although Chris’s father has now retired, the company still remains a family business with Sonia Saltmarshe joining the company in 2006 bringing her considerable experience in textiles and customer service to manage front of house, while Chris heads up innovation and production as master craftsman. Together, a family business with professional attributes, focused on providing the highest quality in production and customer experience.
To further strengthen the breadth and depth of our team, in October 2017 Saltmarshe purchased The Frame Factory Cardiff, with staff and stock being integrated into Saltmarshe. Combined, we truly believe we probably now have the most experienced picture framing and picture making team in South Wales.

All parts of the business seamlessly integrate to provide Cardiff’s only comprehensive Picture Maker.  A complete picture making service from printing to perfect presentation.  So whether you’re an individual or a company, looking for photo printing or bespoke framing, Saltmarshe is picture perfect for you.
