Christchurch Picture Framing

Framing of objects, shirts, fibre art  and memorabilia in shadow boxes

Picture framing is the obvious way to present photos and art on paper or canvas, but it also provides an original stylish means of displaying and preserving garments, objects and memorabilia.

We can help you create a perfect framed souvenir out of almost any object: Rugby shirts, christening gowns and other garments; medals or badges, framed together with photos and certificates; cross stitch and embroidery, shoes, dried flowers or cake decorations, whatever you treasure we frame it. 

Mirrors, blackboards and notice boards

in a style of your choice and to the exact size required with plain or beveled glass.


 

Update your old framed art - Get a new look!

We can help rejuvenate the existing framed art that you still love and treasure. Bring in your own already framed art. We can replace any broken glass and brighten up your framed art and décor. Replacing or adding new fashion colored acid-free matting can bring new life to any room in your home or office.

Or bring in your valuable art work  for a ‘health check’ to ensure that it is framed for maximum protection in order to avoid deterioration.
