A quote can be done over the phone or via email, however we highly recommend that you come in to discuss your framing needs. This way all aspects of the process can be shown and explained to you, and it is far easier to select the frame you want.

Generally a time frame of one to two weeks, but we do offer an express service if required by a certain date.

Will my picture be ready to hang on the wall?

Definitely! All frames are finished with hangers and cord.

 

Do you frame tapestries?

Yes we do. The tapestry is first stretched then attached over the backing to keep its shape. Mat board and non reflective glass are also used.

Can you frame a jersey?

We do a lot of sports memorabilia framing! Along with many other items that require the 3D framed look. This is called shadow box framing.

Should mat board be used?

Matboard not only adds to the overall look with its choices of colours, textures and multi layering it also keeps your artwork away from the glass – over time it is possible with humidity and temperature changes that the artwork can stick to the glass, so the matboard helps to prevent this.

Is the framing done onsite or sent somewhere else?

All aspects of the framing process is done on our premises in Southport on the Gold Coast.

The glass has broken in my picture, can it be replaced?

Answer: Yes this a very common request! Just bring your artwork in and the broken glass will be removed, and a new piece will be measured and placed.
