The Art Of Framing and Our Community Spirit
Mat boards or borders are not just for decor & design, but they were originally introduced when pictures became adhered to glass and were thought to be lost forever. They play a major part in conserving an art or memorable photograph.
Mat cutting or design can involve many combinations - a single, double or triple combination for creating personalized frames. We at Southern Picture Framers can provide you with a variety of choices - museum or rag, conservation, buffered, unbuffered, colour core, white core, etc. Our pros also make use of fillets, which are very enhancing and come in several designs. We even have our very own Wizard Mat Cutter that can easily create thousands of embossed, shaped, lettered and other designs.
The external wooden part of a picture frame is known as moulding. Custom picture framing is a symphony working together with the central piece, which means the frame or mouldings should pull it all together along with the decor of the room where the piece is going to be kept. Our experts at Southern PIcture Framers can show you specialist techniques & machines to ensure a perfect production of your frame. We would also help you to choose from more than 400 frames stocked in our showroom.
Southern Picture Framers can also provide you with high quality canvas stretching service. We work mainly on stainer and stretcher bars, as per the available budget and kind of material utilised. Whatever your requirement may be, you can have a word with our experts and pick the best option for your picture.
