About First Impressions/Picture This

We are a family/pet friendly professional photography business & bespoke framers with a combined experience of over 40 years across 2 members of staff. Our range of experiece covers stills photography on well known television programmes to framing for professional sports people. We have now extended our existing business Picture This Studios North East Ltd and have set up First Impressions UK Ltd, & are offering 2/3d castings as this enables us to offer our valued customers another beautiful keepsake they can cherish forever.

We are not a franchise & we feel this is extremely important as we mantain control, make all the decisions, & are able to set our own prices enabling us to keep the cost to you our valued customer as low as possible. Our unique selling point is that we do everything inhouse, from doing your casting to taking the image to go in the framed piece, to discussing your required frame to match your finished cast and decor, to choosing the words that go on your plaque in the frame. Everything we do is made with love and care - so when you get a cast made by First impressions, be guaranteed that every ounce of love has gone into making every aspect of it and you will have a forever keepsake to cherish.

Each piece comes not only with a plaque detailing your personalised words, but with a little poem to read in years to come, and maybe even bring a little tear to your eye (in a nice way), as a little reminder of how tiny their hands and feet used to be. Everything is branded - we feel this is important, as presentation is everything - our gift vouchers come gift wrapped in a choice of pink/blue/white tissue paper - are sealed with a First Impressions sticker and are placed in a gift box suitable for posting/we can put some ribbon on it for you should you wish to give it in person. Each voucher has a 3 month validity on it, which means they are ideal to give as newborn/christening gifts. They also have a space for you to pop on a special message to show you care, making it even more special to whoever you choose to give it to. Our vouchers are ideal for any occassion whether it be a birthday,  a new addition to the family, or just because you want to. The vouchers can be made out for any amount so they are suitable for all budgets.

We are totally transparent with no hidden costs along the way and when you visit us at First Impressions we want that first impression to be a lasting impression, and one you are happy to share with your friends and family. For more information please feel free to contact us on 01388 417737 or email us on, we will be happy to help with any queries you may have.
