Recommendations for framing?

By la_psyche 1 December 2013 30

Hi all,

Need a bit of help – have recently come back from overseas where I bought some paintings, which I now need to get custom framed.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent framer in Canberra, and approximate cost?

Would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Framing Master in Fyshwick, reasonable prices and they do excellent job as well as same day service or very quick turn around.

my parents use Framing Matters in Manuka and they do really amazing work, but very high end (ie. very expensive!) If you have seriously valuable artworks you should probably go there. I take my stuff down to Proframe on Akuna St, Civic, more my price range, still very good quality , great service and really really fast turnarounds, i’ve never had to wait more than two weeks, once I dropped a piece in on a saturday for custom framing and got a call on Monday afternoon to say its ready!!

Framing matters are good at what they do, but they are very pricey

THE FRAMERS next to Aarwun gallery in gold creek is a great little business. The prices are reasonable and the design and quality of their framing is second to none. They framed some valuable prints for me last year and gave me some great advice about conservation. I was very happy with the result.

i used to take all my stuff to the lovely old couple that used to operate up top of Lonsdale street, near debacle, but they went and retired on me!! Lately though I’ve discovered the Canlab/Civic Proframe place on Akuna street, (never even knew it was there until we left the transit bar late one night and were blown away by the cool stuff they have hanging in the window). Now i take all my stuff there! they are fun and creative with a great sense of style (the younger two there), probably mid range on price, more expensive than your backyard boys or the discount qynbn mob, but the quality is top notch so seems like great value to me (and I like framers that aren’t snobby), about the same as I was paying up in Braddon years ago.

If you want inexpensive framing go to the Old Bus Depot Markets on Sundays.

Best framer I have experienced is ‘The Framers’ at Goldcreek. Really good value for money, nice staff and professional work. Have had numerous pics and photos done there and will be going back.

Thanks for pointing that out, we’ve contacted the web design firm that produced our site and we are assured that any stock images utilised on the website have been purchased and the thumbnail you’re referring to will be replaced with the proper version, it should have been replaced after the draft was approved before publication but was overlooked.

Rest assured we take copyright issues very seriously at Canlab and Civic Proframe, in our role as an agent for the bica prolab we routinely turn away people who wish to reproduce other people’s work without authority.
