We Frame Everything
Our framing staff are artists themselves and have an in-depth knowledge of art methods, materials and basic conservation practices.
Original works are definitely our favourite things to see, but we are available to frame just about anything! From paintings, works on paper, prints, items in a shadow box, or cross-stitch/other textile work.

We also do:
- light restoration
- mat cutting
- provide framing supplies so artists can frame their own work
Custom Stretched Canvas
Stretchers are custom made to the size you need. We can build stretchers as small as four by four inches, and the largest sizes are limited only by what will fit through a doorway. The maximum size that we can build and deliver locally is 72” by 120”.
Our custom gallery stretcher bars are constructed using two pieces of kiln dried pine which are glued and nailed to provide maximum strength to guard against warping. The gallery bars are 1 3/4” deep. The corners are joined using 1/8 inch hardboard masonite. The triangular masonite corners are glued and nailed to the front and back of the stretcher’s four corners. Crossbars are used to brace a bars in larger sizes. These are made from the same kiln dried pine and are all 1 1/4” thick.
The stretcher can be built to your specification, using either primed canvas or raw canvas of various weights. Please call or email us for a quote!
