FRAMING

Still @ the centre… a place in which to custom frame or find a unique ready-made

All the framing is done in the centre’s workshop with the utmost care by an experienced and dedicated framer and hundreds of beautiful moldings, mats and fillets await your creative combinations to produce the perfect frame for each artwork you bring us… We love inventing interesting ways of making that frame special: 3D shadow boxes, double or even triple mats, box moldings, float mounts, V grooves, artwork caught between sheets of Perspex or glass, etc. so… challenge us! And if you wanted more “stories” of some of our framing challenges, please click here to go to our “In the Frame” blog.

We are now also the proud suppliers, for the area, of Italian company Bellini which hand makes and guilds stunning and precious moldings… for that special work of art or to indulges in a beveled mirror of exception.

PS: We stock two types of normal glass: clear & non reflex + two different Conservation ones offering 70% UV protection: Ultravue and 100% UV protection Art glass which has such an amazing clarity you’ll never believe there is glass at all!

PPS: We also stock mirror and can custom make one for you just at the right size for that wall!

PPPS: We do have some ready-made frames in stock now… all unique frames made here in our workshop. For that standard size and a cheaper option, you should check them out!

PPPPS: We also do some mounting on Gatofoam board (stronger than normal foam board, Gatofoam can hold a hanging system). We stock white and black in 10mm and neutral in 5mm. Following indicative prices include the hanging system (for other sizes please ask for a quote): A4: w: 24 / b: 26 /n: 21 – A3: w:30 /b:33/n:28 – A2: w:54 / b:58/n:48 – A1: w:79 / b:84 / n:65

PPPPPS: Mat + backing Presenting your artworks and prints sandwiched between a mat board and a foam board is increasingly popular. You can then choose to shrinkwrap them too. Prices below are for mats with an opening to suit your artwork. If you want us to glue a D-ring at the back for easy hanging please add $1.50
A3 or smaller mat to size w opening: $ 18 with backing : $25 – A2 or smaller mat to size w opening: $ 22 with backing : $32

We have many mats in stock and are usually able to do the job within 1/2 working days. If you want multiples or a specific one please allow around 10 days.
