There’s nothing quite like custom framing that fits a photograph or painting like a glove. Perfectly unintrusive, bringing life and pleasing structure to the subject. A thick, heavy wooden frame, warm and homely, for your custom framed antiques or heirlooms, a classic, ornate frame to enhance the delicate tones of an oil painting, or a modern, minimalist frame to push the boldness of a timeless, complex photograph to the level of household masterpiece.
Even an ordinary painting can appear striking with a complementary frame of the correct thickness to match the level of detail, negative space in the form of matting, and a bold or subtly contrasting colour to bring out the best of the tones. So when you bring us your most cherished travel photographs, your family pictures, or your personal treasures, VIP can make them stand out in any room of your home with a selection of custom frames to suit the item perfectly. We also offer photo restoration services.
Can a picture tell a thousand words? Yes, it truly can. Thanks to the wonder of photography, a moment, or a smile, can even outlast us – suspended in time, like a window to another time as clear as the day it was taken. Over years and decades, however, photographs – especially older photographs – can suffer damage from humidity due to swelling – a perfect environment for mould – and deteriorate and fade even in indirect UV light. Older and cheaper papers and inks may be unstable, and have a low pH, leading to a sort of burn that develops around the edges of the image, but slowly ruins the entire picture.
Conservation framing can protect your prints from deterioration, and with some maintenance and care, can also prevent them altogether for decades. Learn more about conservation framing here.
What can be framed?
Over our 25 years in business, we have framed countless things – from standard photographs, artworks and medals, to sports memorabilia, certificates and awards, commemorative pieces, New Guinea headdresses, jackets, football jerseys, cross-stitch, and tapestries. We’re well known for the fact that there’s nothing we won’t frame. See our Picture Framing page for our services in detail.
