The process of framing can feel daunting when you are presented with so many options but rest assured, our staff are not only fantastic at helping you choose what type of framing is best aesthetically for your artwork but equally what is best for it’s protection.
When we stretch your canvas artwork we only use kiln dried stretcher bar to produce beautiful long lasting results. And intrepid travelers note – yes, we can even stretch those canvases that have previously been on a stretcher bar! If you want to give your stretched artwork some extra emphasis we can frame your stretched canvas as well!
Float mounting is ideal for making an artwork look like it is suspended or floating within the frame. It is particularly effective for those artworks that are on a heavy weight paper with deckled edges.
In the framing of needlework we employ the traditional lacing method, using no adhesives or staples. This process is completely reversible, the needle work is laced on to premium acid free solid rag board ensuring the integrity of your piece is preserved.
Our staff are skilled in conservation framing methods and we offer the highest quality materials on the market. You can have your artwork framed up to museum grade standard and know your artwork will stand the test of time.
Firstly you might like to have it conservationmounted on a black mat board to avoid bleed through from the page behind being visible. Also we would recommend a UV filtering glass to prevent fading and yellowing.
We offer a guarantee on both our materials and services and a discount of up to 25% for artists, photographers and designers on presentation of their creative sole trader ABN.
