Our story

Founded in 1982 by three brothers in a basement flat in Brighton, King & McGaw exists to celebrate art. In the beginning, we produced prints on a second-hand screen press. Today, we’ve moved along the Sussex coast and our state-of-the-art printing and framing workshops have expanded to meet global demand. 

King & McGaw are proud sponsors of the Turner Prize 2023 at Towner Eastbourne. Learn more.

With forty years of printing and framing experience under our belts, artists and their estates – including The Andy Warhol Foundation, Picasso, Matisse, Basquiat, and Frank Bowling to name a few – endorse our products, and we’re proud guardians of prestigious licenses to produce iconic artworks. Our process is meticulous. From the precise pigments we select to the sustainable paper we print on, the frames we make – by hand – to the care that goes into our packaging; everything we produce is uncompromising on quality. United by a shared passion for fine art, we’re making it our mission to preserve it for posterity. That’s why we conserve rare pieces, we represent emerging artists, and we finance exciting creative bursaries.

‘When you shop with us, artists, their estates, and institutions benefit from sales. We are King & McGaw – we are the destination for fine art prints.’


For over forty years we have supplied bespoke printed art products to the world’s greatest institutions including Tate, V&A, Royal Academy, National Gallery, British Museum and MoMA. We design and produce sell-out products - from prints and postcard packs to signed portfolio boxes - for blockbuster exhibitions and innovative museum shops.

‘The National Gallery has partnered with King & McGaw for over twenty years, and always trusted the high quality of their prints, frames and service.’

Judith Mather, Buying and Merchandising Director of the National Gallery


A great deal of thought goes into our printing, framing and packaging to manage our environmental footprint. For example, to improve our energy efficiency, we have added an innovative Swiss-made printer to our workshop: fitted with low energy LED lights and the latest UV-printing inks, it allows us to print exceptionally precisely, save on paper, and energy. Find out more about the measures we take to protect the environment here.

A note from our Founder

‘Our new swissQprint system is just one of many on-going commitments we’ve made to reduce our carbon footprint and improve print quality.

We now target spray our mouldings to reduce paint usage, and our protective frame corners are made with recycled paper pulp. We can always do more though, and we continue to look for innovative ways to protect the planet.’

– Gyr King, Founder and CEO of King and McGaw
