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.

Museums and archives

In addition to collaborating with established artists and their estates – including The Andy Warhol Foundation, Picasso, Matisse, Basquiat, and Frank Bowling to name a few – we also work with the world’s greatest institutions including Tate, National Gallery, and MoMa in New York. Explore our museum and archive collections here.

‘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.

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
