Quality Picture Framing Belfast

Nickel Art's History

Nickel Art was started by Peter Nicholl in 2005 after dinner one night, when a friend got fed up hearing Peter complain about "Credit Card Corners" and if it annoyed him so much why did he not do something about it. The result was that Peter went out the next day and started a framing business, Nickel ART.
