Where To Get Custom Framing Done

While not as common as Coles or Bunnings, you still won’t have difficulty finding a picture framing specialist to fulfil your custom framing needs. If you don’t have a framing business close by, Frames Now offer an online custom framing service, so, you can have your pictures custom framed no matter where you live.


Aside from the convenience that comes with using an online picture framing service, it also gives you more choice, allowing you to shop around without ever leaving your home. And when it comes to a specialised service like framing, it is important to choose the right company for you.


But what should you look at when deciding where to get your custom framing done?

Consider Their Experience

Experience in picture framing is a combination of years and diversity of projects. The number of years the business or framer have been operating is important for both experience and the ability to return to them to sort out any queries. With Frames Now, you can be assured of the 10-year guarantee if your frame is ever damaged, providing you with confidence your frame will last. When deciding on a picture framer, be sure to explore their framing portfolio, either by going in-store or in an online portfolio. Look at how creatively they frame particular pieces to ensure the picture stands out. Ask about the methods they use to ensure delicate or priceless pieces are not only protected but also preserved.

Ask About Their Selection and Services

The amount of frame styles, colours, and materials available is vast, and it isn’t possible for framing businesses to display all possible options, even online. Feel free to reach out to your chosen custom framer, to know all of the options they offer. Therefore, improving your chances of finding a custom frame that not only suits the piece being framed but also your home. Similarly, you want to know the company you choose offer a variety of services all related to custom framing, including glass cutting, canvas stretching, and frame repairs. The more they do in-house the more you are assured of consistent quality.

How Competitive Their Pricing Is

If the framing business has a website, you should be able to see some of their pricing. This might be for other services they offer—such as matboard cutting—through to ready-made frames and even shipping costs. Most custom framing has too many variables involved for general pricing to be shown—these include the frame type, the size of the frame, and even the complexity of the project. However, they should offer obligation-free quotes that allow you to then compare their pricing with that of other framing businesses. It is important to remember that these quotes can change depending on the size of the items being framed, how many items are being framed, and the materials used, so it is best to go into store to guarantee the most accurate price. Cheaper isn’t always best, but pricing should be competitive and transparent.
