Blockmounts, Clip Frames and Readymades
Block mounting is an alternative framing option available to our clients. It is best used for prints and posters and is a permanent process where the picture is heat bonded to a strong craft wood backing. We also offer a laminate finish to the artwork to give extra protection and longevity to your item. It is an affordable, minimal option that looks great and can suit many artworks.
Clip frames are another alternative framing option we can offer. Clip frames again work well for posters, prints and photographs. The artwork is sandwiched between a smooth edged piece of glass and a craft wood backing and then held together with silver clips. It creates a very clean, minimal look.
We also carry a range of readymade aluminium frames to standard sizes in both our stores. Our Phillip location also stocks timber frames and mat boards can be cut to size on the spot if required.

Broken glass and damaged picture frames often occur while moving or rearranging your home. We repair broken glass, replace materials that are causing acidic damage to artwork, repair loose frame corners, correct picture slippage and replace worn wire, hangers and backing on frames. We provide an obligation free inspection, expert advice and quote on all repair work.
