Even though only the highest quality equipment and materials are being used, Arto Martha treasures its staff as one of its biggest assets. We currently employ four full-time personnel, supplemented by contractors. Although all permanent personnel are utilised in the administrative capacity of a formal company framework, all staff are well trained and very capable of also producing high quality products.


Martha is a founding member and currently looks after the overall well-being of the company, in her capacity as general manager. As the person with the vision for this company, she is also tasked with pricing structures and is part of the quality assurance team.

Martha possesses a diploma in arts and was previously employed as an inventory manager.



Although Dirk has a technical background, he has a history in the financial and marketing sector and, more recently, in business analysis and project management. He is currently tasked with governing the direction of Arto Martha as well as financial planning.



All contractors are hand-picked and work on site under the supervision of permanent staff. We have the ability to outsource tasks, like glass and backboard cutting, to selected suppliers, who are also involved in the framing industry, and are currently used as suppliers to Arto Martha.


Production capabilities

Due to our emphasis on quality, a cut off point for daily production by permanent staff was set at twenty five canvases, A2 on average, thirty certificate sized frames with matte and thirty five desktop sized picture frames. This can easily be doubled by the use of our contractors in case of larger orders. More personalized framing with regards to boxing, i.e. rugby shirts etc., requires more time and is set at an average of four per day.

As we have working agreements related to framing services, i.e. engraving, restoration printing et cetera, all is seamlessly integrated into our offerings with a single point of access.


Framing materials

Even though all suppliers claim to sell high quality products, we accept the responsibility to ensure that every purchase is quality assured before allowing it into our stock. We do not purchase from the emerging eastern or the so called “cheap” market. Only manufacturers with a proven record of quality are used. All matte boards are acid free and our glass is ultraviolet resistant.

With a variety in excess of 3000 frames and 1000 matte types, sourced from the top 5 suppliers, we are convinced that we will be able to serve your needs.
