You’ve bought a new art piece but don’t know where to go to get it framed? It’s a dilemma that many of us face, and yet it’s not always easy to find reputable framing companies. It can be daunting when you’ve just spent some money on a local artist and making your space feel uniquely yours, but you don’t want prints laying around your home gathering dust.

Art needs to be protected from the elements and framing is more than just an aesthetic choice. Sun damage from UV light exposure can deteriorate the integrity of a print or original artwork. Colours fade and most importantly, light damage is not reversible. If you’re just finding your interior style and want to open a space, a bold artwork can shift the whole energy of your home.
