The Company

Founded in 1980, Art Marketing is considered to be one of the market leaders in the home furnishing industry. IOWSTUDIO.jpg
We focus on creativity, innovation and fantastic customer service and continually strive to be the great British design company that customers can trust.

Art Marketing has four very well established and popular brands.  ART@artmarketing encompasses our pictures and wall art, Thomas Kent is destination for our successful clocks collection, ARTBEAT contains an extensive range of greeting cards and Almond Street is the home of our photo frames and mirrors.

Originally a family run company based in Hertfordshire, we were shaped by the artistic talents of our founding members and their influence lives on in our artists and design team today.  Our artwork is created by our exclusive team of talented in-house and freelance artists based on the Isle of Wight. 
Graphic Designers and product developers based in Hertfordshire form the
back bone of Thomas Kent, ARTBEAT and Almond Street collections.  It is this combined
approach to design is the driving force behind Art Marketing’s enviable position in the market.

Our enthusiasm and dedication sets us apart and ensures that Art Marketing retains a
strong and proud sense of its own identity through product design, quality, service and of
course innovation.


About our Brands

Art@Art Marketing


Our 2018 Collection is our best yet and offers outstanding value for money.  We have introduced some fabulous new lower priced art within our Country and Coastal stories for those important impulse gift purchases.  In our Showcase collection this year we have created a fantastic range of unique, embellished art developed by our most popular artists.  We are incredibly proud of this unique and very individual collection, so each picture will be delivered with its own unique swing ticket containing an individual write up by the artist about the origins of that particular piece of art.  Home furnishing trends are very much at the heart of our art and we continue to indulge the popular core and accent colour palettes for 2018.

Thomas Kent Clocks

Success along a similar vein was enjoyed by our ever-popular industrial-look Wharf clock and so this has also been developed.  

We have introduced a selection of country styled clocks, with floral and animal designs produced by some of our most popular artists on the Isle of Wight, and a new square profile in wall and mantel adds another dimension to the range.  All of our clocks are guaranteed for 12 months.  Each clock comes with a Thomas Kent instructions booklet, a Thomas Kent swing ticket for you to add your price to, and is individually boxed and packaged well enough to be wrapped and despatched to the end consumer.

ARTBEAT Greeting Cards

‘Life Made Fabulous’ and ‘Willow’ are our two new mid-price card ranges, which are joined by a third higher price point for the more luxurious ‘Silver Linings’
The new ranges are enhanced with beautiful hand-made finishes and embellishments and complement our existing cards perfectly.  Our cards continue to offer fantastic value for money and all of our new cards fit brilliantly into our existing card spinners.

You can also order updated ARTBEAT spinner marketing materials and our spinners are still free on loan when you order the required number of packs.

Almond Street Mirrors & Photo Frames

The collection has been streamlined this year to ensure that the collection is delivering great value for money and only our most popular styles.

Watch out for the Autumn launch in September 2018 when we hope to introduce more exciting options in both frames and mirrors!
