Picture Framing

Transforming artwork into treasured pieces

Artform has been picture framing for nearly 25 years. In this time, we have seen all types of artwork: works on paper, canvas, fabric, plastic and metal, just to name a few. Watercolours and drawings are generally framed with a matboard, glass and a frame. These products can vary from budget to conservation. Glass choices include standard plain glass, non-reflective, UV 70, conservation and museum-grade glass. Matboards can vary from an economy or volume matboard to conservation rag mat. Oil and chalk pastels are framed using techniques that avoid the image being compromised. Needleworks, including tapestries, are welcomed at Artform, with many different styles of framing available.

At Artform, we consider many things before advising you on the framing products to use. We assess the value of the artwork, where it is being hung, the rarity of the artwork, or if it is a decorative piece that needs to look fabulous with current décor without breaking the budget. From artist exhibitions to one-off custom framing, we can help create a cohesive look that reflects your style and vision.

Products that vary from budget to conservation

The framing of open and limited-edition prints are considered individually, either putting a matboard around the image, keeping the glass off the face of the print, or to simply frame and glaze. Oils or acrylics on canvas can be framed traditionally with a frame and slip or can be framed in a modern style with a simple reverse or floater frame. These canvasses can also simply be stretched around a custom-built stretcher frame. This approach gives the artwork a very minimal floating look and feel. We can also deliver and hang pictures if required, working within a timeframe. With so many choices, come into our showroom to see our enormous range of frames, glass, and matboards and get an obligation-free quote.
