The Francis Frith Collection is a unique, world-class archive, that has been delighting the public since 1860. Since 1977 we have been offering products based on the archive's extraordinary content.
Over the last 44 years, millions of customers have purchased our products.
Our prints hang in homes, galleries, shops, restaurants, hotels and public buildings across the UK and around the world. Millions of copies of our book titles are on customer's coffee tables and in their bookcases.
Family-owned and run
Although we have several separate companies developing the Frith archive, we are, have been since 1860, a family-run business.
We are small enough to care about every one of our customers, but experienced and professional enough run a very sophisticated business.
Our workshops have been located in a Wiltshire village since 1998, and our prints and books are still produced there.
Our products are hand-made, to order, and in most cases are signed by the individual who has put the finishing touches to the product.
We guarantee every one of our products. Not that you should ever need it - our products have been surpassing customer's expectations for decades. We have exceptionally high levels of customer satisfaction.
We're very proud of our reputation for high quality, and we work extremely hard to maintain it. Our many customer testimonials show this.
Despite the historical nature of our archive material, we have invested heavily in technology over the last 20 years. We operate very sophisticated bespoke software that handles not only this website, but also our complex production and administration systems.
All our products are custom-made, to your order, with a high level of personalization. Our systems handle this extreme complexity, seamlessly.
We have recently launched a service to produce products for other well-known archives, enabling them to use our exceptional systems.
