Once your canvas or linen is stretched, we can consider frames. We have a comprehensive range of shadow frames which can give canvases the finishing touch.
If you have something that is valuable conservation framing is necessary but there are degrees of conservation framing.

Textiles, watercolours, some inks, pastels and gouache are the most susceptible to damage with long term exposure. Museum glass reduces the damaging UV by 90%, Tru Vu by 70%, both reduce reflection more effectively than the old non reflective glass.
My artwork is too big for my car, do you deliver?

What is the best way to hang a painting?
There are no hard and fast rules to hanging an artwork. Generally, one third of the art work is above eye level (is a good place to start) but then you can adjust this depending on the position of furniture or other objects or spaces that may affect the positioning. In short, if you like it, it鈥檚 right. As far as the right hooks and hangers it depends on the type of wall you are hanging the artwork on. Gyprock usually requires a toggle hook, and brick requires plugs and screws. There is also the option of installing a hanging rail to easily change or adjust your art works. If you would like help installing your please ask us and we can either supply advice or come and hang for you.
