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!

What’s Your opinion?

I like Framing Matters in Manuka. Great customer service, and they have won a stack of awards for their Framing efforts.

Seconded. My go-to guys for important things.

What’s their turnaround time like?

You won’t be able to get anything framed this side of Christmas, but normally a week or two.

Thanks for all the recommendations everyone! Canberra City Framing is just down the road from work so might duck in there today, and at least will have a starting point for when I call some of the others – although might skip the ACT Police ;P

They aren’t in Canberra, but I’ve been using http://www.frameshop.com.au lately. Very good prices, you can either send them your artwork and they’ll frame it, or make the frames up and you can put things in them. I’ve used them to frame photos, a watercolour on paper and stretch a canvas and have been very happy with them. They’ll also happily do stuff that isn’t on their website if you get in touch with them.

Locally I’ve used Hang Ups and the exhibition centre, both in Fyshwick and have been happy with the product, but they are both expensive.

I get Annette across from the Jamison Centre in Macquarie to do my framing. Bit of a character, fair prices & high-quality work.

I have used these guys once. And once only. They charge like a wounded bull, and their framing is average at best.

Try the ACT police – they framed Winchester and a few others !

Bang! I wanted to make the same gag, haha!

To be constructive, I’ve used the framers attached to Aarwun Gallery in Gungahlin and was happy with the outcome. And a friend has just used Hang Ups in Fyshwick with good results as well.

I’ve only used one framer in Canberra once and that was Canberra City Framing as mentioned in a previous response. Cost me $350 to get a huuuuuuuuuge map framed. Very good job they did too. I’d go back there.

We have had Bill Mitchell of ‘Just Picture This’ http://www.canberrapictureframers.com.au/index.html
do the framing of many paintings for us and he does a brilliant job. I highly recommend giving him a call to discuss what you would like.

Best framer is in Civic. Canberra City Framing Gallery. They are a picture framer and gallery, owner is an artist and knows his stuff. 39 London Circuit, Canberra ACT 2601. Very reasonable prices.

I’ve always gone to Buvelot Framers in Colbee Court, Phillip. They’ve always done an excellent job, but they’re a little pricey. Worth it though.
