PicAdore Gallery was founded in 2009 by Martin Zammit, a time
served printer with over thirty years experience in the trade. Martin set up the
business from scratch in an old upholstery workshop which he renovated into a small
gallery and print shop. Soon after starting he had a collection of local photographers
supplying images of the local Scarborough and Yorkshire coast scenery, displaying
them throughout the gallery, and at local events such as seafest. A year went by
and a young graphic designer was taken on to help with the heavy workload. Keeping
in with the theme of displaying local photographers artwork. PicAdore decided to
expand its online presence by teaming up with local web designers eightlegged.com.
These guys created this unique website that incorporate a social network style gallery
system for the photographers, enabling them to self promote and get feedback on
their images whilst still selling them through the PicAdore brand.
At PicAdore, we focus ourselves on the quality of the canvas as an end product. each canvas is individually
crafted by hand, from sizing of the image, adjusting the colours, making any additional
edits, to making the frame and hand stretching the canvas over it. All our canvases
are then sprayed with a UV resistant lacquer which further enhances the colours
and protects the artwork from dirt and fading.
Preview your photo onto canvas online. In our virtual living spaces. Choose from a selection
of rooms, furnish and colour to match your own room and then transport your chosen
image to a wall in that room, altering the size and dimensions to suit the available
space and your budget.
Our softwares' specialised image processing engine reads the information contained
within the image and checks it for quality, on doing so, it then displays the appropriate
sizes and proportions available to you to keep the image at full quality.
A lot of companies offering canvas prints online do not offer this service, leaving
many unhappy customers who have uploaded a low resolution picture and chose a big
size canvas, only to find when it is delivered that it is blurry and pixelated and
their money is wasted!
We pride ourselves on total customer satisfaction having not had a single complaint
in our short though busy existence - that's over one thousand happy customers already!
We will be in contact with you at the soonest possible opportunity after we've received
your order to discuss your artwork and maybe make a few suggestions based on our
experience. Should you require assistance using the website or have any questions
please do not hesitate to call us on 01723 355588 Mon - Sat (9.00 am - 5.00 pm)

Dear Martin, I would like to say thank you so much for my truly gorgeous canvas. The photo I gave you wasn't very good quality and yet you've still managed to create a fantastic really detailed canvas with bold colours. I will be telling everybody about you! Keep up the good work.
Many thanks again.

Dear Picadore Canvas Printing
I spoke to you about this blob on my picture and I will try to remove it.
I'll let you know how I get on.
If it's not a success you generously said you would do me another.
Otherwise I am happy with my canvas print and will recommend you to friends.
The canvas print arrived yesterday and is gorgeous!
Thank you so much, I'm really pleased with how good it looks
I received my panoramic canvas print yesterday and to say I am pleased with the result would be an understatement. It looks fantastic and I will definitely be sending more work your way.
Thank you, they are wonderful. The one with the balloon came out especially well. Hope you had a nice break.
All the best.
