Picture framing is an art in itself. As custom framing specialists, we have an “eye for style”, unique design and out of the box thinking. Framing should enhance and draw you into the art, not overpower or take away from it. Whether rustic, elegant, chic, classic or anywhere in between. We can work out something that is sure to impress and have you thrilled to show off. We have the ability to do oversize projects or the most fragile of artifacts. You can feel secure leaving your precious heirlooms or works of art in our care to bring to life through our work.
Conservation Framing Proper care and maintenance is of utmost importance to preserve the integrity of fragile and time honoured heirlooms. We have all materials needed to ensure proper care so you will know generations to come will still be able to enjoy what was meant to be shared.

Great for a child’s artwork or special project from school.
Corporate, Residential and Institutional Framing We do an array of framing projects, from single customer to large corporate orders and new complex buildings such as senior centres, condos and apartments.
Lamination Options We often will recommend to laminate your artwork with a high quality matte finish. There’s no need for glass which makes your art pieces lighter, much less chance of damage and no glass reflection no matter where you hang it. It also helps to protect against fading as well. We also offer a canvass lamination which brings a regular picture to life with a canvas painted look.
Original Work Originals, like paintings, photographs, pastels, pencil and the such should never be laminated and are best protected and presented with acid free mats, glass and frame. Glass should never touch the artwork. We have various types of glass including plexi, non glare, conservation clear and tru view. Even our regular 2.5 ml has some UV protection.
Shadow Boxing Many objects need special show casing and protecting. Lifts are built up inside the frame out of sight and the frame is lined with coordinating or matching matting for a professional finished look. This keeps the glass away from the artwork while still adding a protective quality. Anything 3 D is able to be showcased in a shadowbox. There are times when using a narrower shadow box than the item (like a mask) where the article actually protrudes beyond the frame is a unique and show stopping technique that makes it stand out from all the rest – which is the desired effect.
Glass Float A piece of artwork is pressed between two pieces of glass, then framed so that the wall color shows through, giving the impression that the art is suspended in mid air.
Plaque Mounting A print is laminated and mounted on a piece of pressed wood. The edge color is a matter of choice so there is no need for a frame.
Print Catalogues We have a selection of books to choose from as well as art prints in stock. Usually we can get an ordered print within a couple or three days. We have books such as Canadian Art Prints, Image Conscious, Winn Devon and more. We can also get a large variety of Canadian Artists prints in almost any size you would like.
Special Event Framing Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Sports Awards, Retirements and more are all part of presentation and gift framing. Any occasion for any reason, there is always something that someone would be thrilled to have framed.
Cost of Custom Framing As with anything custom, you can expect to pay for what you want. We try our best to work within our customer’s budgets wherever possible by suggesting alternate options. We will always put forth our finest vision for each individual project which may, or may not be the most expensive depending on what looks best on it. In this way, if we have to alter things, we are able to take away or substitute to bring into a more moderate budget. We believe, if we show you the very best we will be proud to put our name on it as much as you are to display it.
Mirrors One of the greatest ways to add perception of more space to any area, whether a powder room, ensuite, living or dining room or even at the end of a hallway or entrance. It can make a huge statement or as an accent of color and design.
Jersey Framing With the popularity of jerseys these days, it’s nice to have it preserved on your wall. Our jersey framing starts between $300 – $500. depending on the size and materials you choose. It can be done very simply or quite elaborate with pictures and other articles in alone side of it.
Unconventional Framing Often we have clients that just love to have something that most people would shy away from. We have framed the size of a greeting card with 2 of our largest frames stacked together with matting as well. This kind of framing is for the bold and courageous but those people really know what they want and we understand that anything goes in art. We love doing the imaginative & unconventional masterpieces. They are one of a kind works and our clients love the finished results. Sometimes just adding a fillet to a frame can change the look enough that completes the job perfectly.
Deadlines & Time Crunches On many of our projects, we are able to have a very short turn around time, often same day service or while you wait mat cutting. We are able to cut our own frames, mats and glass all in store and if available in stock you could have your framing in not time at all instead of the usual 10 days to 2 week turnaround.
