Picture Framing

Our large selection of frames and mounts allows you to find the perfect frame for your piece. We believe in offering high quality craftsmanship and an outstanding design service, we take the time to design a piece that reflects your style. Not sure what frame you want, allow our friendly design team to assist you in creating a distinctive piece that will leave a lasting impression.

Protect your precious memories, ask us about preservation framing and make your memories last more than a lifetime. Preservation framing ensures utmost protection is given to your piece by using UV filtering glazing, acid-free or rag mat boards and employing archival grade framing techniques (as defined by PFGA).

In a hurry, we also stock a large range of ready made frames made in house. If you prefer a DIY option, we also supply framing materials, the same top notch materials we use! Check out our selection online or call us today.

“A picture is just a picture until it’s framed and then it becomes a work of art.”

Canvas Stretching

Have you recently travelled overseas and purchased artwork on Canvas? Do you have a rolled up canvas still laying around from last year’s holiday? We will custom stretch your canvas artwork ready to hang. All our canvas work is stretched onto quality custom stretchers. We also custom build stretcher frames for non-standard and large format works.

Trust your artwork to us. Unlike some canvas stretching services, we use only quality materials and processes.

  • We specialize in Original Aboriginal and Bali Artwork
  • Only stainless steel staples are used to secure your artwork. Other staples may rust over time causing damage to the artwork
  • Proper kiln dried pine strainer bars with a lip are used, not just square edged industrial timber. This allows the work to sit correctly on the frame. We also offer an option of quality Meranti timber stretchers if preferred.
  • We use plastic coated stainless steel hanging wire where required. This is strong and doesn’t stretch or rot.
  • D-Rings are used on all our work – we finish the job professionally and recommend using the “2 point hanging system” for safe and stable art hanging. We even supply complimentary wall hooks with our canvas artwork.
  • We complete the backing of the stretched artwork with tape.
  • We use bumpers on the back corners of all of our work.
  • Support braces are used where required ensuring that the work stays taught and square.

DIY Option

If you prefer a DIY option we can supply stretcher bars or custom built frames for you to stretch the canvas yourself, we even have stretching pliers and staple guns available for DIY options. Contact us today for me information.
