We keep an extensive range of products for picture framing at our Mt. Gravatt showroom. Online you can purchase chopped frames that are ready to join using a simple thumbnail that we provide. All the bits and pieces, matboards, foamboards, glass and acrylic is available in store or you can purchase a selected range from our online shop.
Our chop service provides you with the easy way to purchase picture frame mouldings.
Lengths of picture framing are pre-cut to sizes of your choice. Mitres are routed to accept thumbnail wedges, then slotted at the mitre so you can join your frame with a special wedge which is provided. The chopped frame is then dispatched to you.
Fix-a-Frame has an extensive range of "nik-naks".
All those things that picture framers keep to themselves, like... "D rings", "V nails", turnbuttons, felt bumpers, push points...in fact just about every little fitting or accessory available.
